Clue meets Indiana Jones with a fiction-loving twist only Grace Percy can provide.
Newlyweds Lord and Lady Astley have already experienced their fair-share of suspense, but when a honeymoon trip takes a detour to the mystical land of Egypt, not even Grace with her fiction-loving mind is prepared for the dangers in store. From an assortment of untrustworthy adventure-seekers to a newly discovered tomb with a murderous secret, Frederick and Grace must lean on each other to navigate their dangerous surroundings. As the suspects mount in an antiquities’ heist of ancient proportions, will Frederick and Grace’s attempts to solve the mystery lead to another death among the sands?

"In The Cairo Curse, our favorite Lord and Lady Astley of The Mistletoe Countess fame, find mysteries and mayhem aplenty in Egypt. And none of us are surprised because where Grace goes, let's face it, a certain amount of chaos will follow.  I adored watching the married romance between Grace and Freddie grow and strengthen as they continue to settle into their life together, but readers who are new to this couple will have no difficulty in following along and will undoubtedly be swept into their story within a few pages. From England to Egypt, from dining in formal attire to crawling through tombs, and from delightful adventures to deadly confrontations, The Cairo Curse is the perfect combination of romance, adventure, and suspense all written in Pepper Basham's trademark style. This delightful romp is a must-read for romance, rom-com, and suspense readers alike."
 - Lynn H. Blackburn, bestselling author of Malicious Intent and Targeted.  

“With exquisite descriptions, a vibrant heroine, and whispers of danger haunting the tombs of the ancients, Pepper Basham’s The Cairo Curse will transport readers to exploring the wonders of the pyramids and their mysteries that await.”
- Grace Hitchcock, award-winning author of My Dear MISS DUPRÉ, Her Darling MR. DAY, and His Delightful LADY DELIA.

"An adventure packed with mystery and humor, Ms. Basham takes readers to Egypt's exotic landscape and serves up an unpredictable and entertaining plot rivaling that of the great Agatha Christie. Move over Detective Poirot, Freddie and Grace have arrived."
- Natalie Walters, award-winning author of Lights Out, SNAP Agency, and The Harbored Secrets series.

"I don't know the last time I savored every page of a novel like I did with The Cairo Curse. The second installment in Grace and Frederick's amazing adventures, I felt like I had been transported around the globe to England and then Egypt. The mystery was tight and the characters real. I enjoyed every page and can't recommend this novel highly enough to fans of Agatha Christie and similar stories. A true five out of five."
- Cara Putman, award-winning author of Lethal Intent and Shadowed by Grace

Some characters, fictional though they may be, feel like the dearest friends, and when you are fortunate enough to be granted more time with them it is even more treasured. That's how I felt opening Pepper Basham's The Cairo Curse and being reunited with swoony Freddie and adorable Grace. Within the first few paragraphs, I was grinning like a fool - a grin that stayed firmly in place until the very last word. Adventure, danger, mummies (if Grace has her way), thieves, murderers, and of course romance await you, dear readers, along with more than a "smattering of hope braided into every hardship.” Delightful in every way!
- Carrie Schmidt, Reading Is My SuperPower


The sharp characterization is complemented by a plot that’s by turns funny and suspenseful, and Lady Grace Astley will especially steal readers’ hearts with her independence and humor. This is a pleasure.
