The Curse of the Pharaohs (Amelia Peabody, #2)

The Curse of the Pharaohs  - Elizabeth Peters, Barbara Rosenblat New parents Amelia Peabody and Radcliffe Emerson are jonesing to get back to Egypt after being away four years raising Ramses. Even knowing of the deadly curse, they jump at the chance to return when asked by Lady Baskerville whose husband has just been killed after opening a newly discovered tomb. Neither Amelia nor Emerson believe in the supernatural so the various happenings and the mysterious murders, don't scare them off as intended. This is another tale of murder and mayhem in the Valley of the Kings where the Father of Curses (Emerson) once again takes control of a crazy situation and shows the natives how it's done.

I love the interplay between Amelia and Emerson. The great love they have for each other is well hidden in the sarcasm and cleverly done fighting. I truly enjoyable series that gets better with each book.
