So far, this series has been nothing but fun. Apparently, there are over fifteen books in the Amelia Peabody series. If you aren't familiar with them, they focus on Amelia, her husband Radcliffe Emerson (who is acquired in the first book), and their many adventures solving mysteries in Egypt in the late 1800's. The combination of Egyptian settings and the British language and fashions of the times add to the charm of these books, at least in my opinion. The books have just the right balance of mystery, humor, and romance... nothing graphic. The dialogue between Emerson and Amelia is always entertaining.
