Candice Cushing and the Lost Tomb of Cleopatra by Georgette Kaplan

I adore the way Georgette Kaplan writes. Her style is fast, witty and laced with humor and sarcasm. I know her writing can be a bit hit or miss with some readers but I just love it. Her latest book takes us back to the desert for a continuation of her The Cushing-Nevada Chronicles. If you have not read Easy Nevada and the Pyramid’s Curse, you definitely want to start there before picking this one up. This is not a sequel you can just jump into.

Easy Nevada and Candice Cushing reunite for an epic adventure full of sexual tension and more danger than an Indiana Jones could ever handle. Our two badass ladies are headed to Sudan to acquire the final skull of the Greek Gods for an unhinged billionaire who wants all the power his money and influence can buy.

As wild as this book is, we find tiny pockets of downtime where Candice and Easy begin to drop their walls around each other. Kaplan slowed the story down just enough to give the reader a hint of romance and focus on character development. You see behind Easy’s mask of deflection and wit. You see why she uses her humor to avoid dealing with insurmountable pain. Her loyalty to Candace in the face of epic danger endures you to her. Candace finds that as much as she misses what her life was like before Easy, she is drawn to the woman and this epic adventure she has been thrust into. A tiny seed of love has been planted in book two.

This series is unlike anything you have read in lesfic before. It’s smart, it’s zany, it’s violent and you just cannot stop reading. I did not want it to end! Such a fabulous read and I cannot wait for the next one in this series.
