I was lucky enough to get this book for review and I'll admit, I'm a cover whore lol and this cover hmm kind of turned me off to the book, enough that it took me awhile to actually pick it up to read it...but let me tell you that old age saying, "Never judge a book by its cover." I've had other covers that were gorgeous and I picked them up and couldn't finish them because the writing was awful.... You have an awful cover here that is hiding a gorgeous story inside. Fans of Paranormal ...more

I was intrigued by the title, who has not heard of the ancient curses of Egypt and wonder how they came about and if they could be broken. Tangerine has always had the power to see the energy lines of curses and to manipulate them and dispel the curse. She is invited to Cairo to help Leila who owns Club Cairene. This club has been the sight of strange deaths over the years.

While trying to trace the energy lines of the curse she encounters a strange man. Habib is connected to the power running un

Kate McVaugh comes up with a very imaginative premise here. I have never seen Egyptian mythology handled quite the way she does it. The characters also have interesting backgrounds, particularly the curse breaker herself. Setting is also interesting, as McVaugh does a good job creating her interpretation of a modern, but clearly alternate, Cairo. There is also more than one unexpected twist. So why not five stars? This one is close, but for me the difference is the resolution of personal ...more

If you are looking for a well-written, compelling and satisfying read then you will enjoy this book. The writing is excellent and I particularly loved the way the author describes Tangerine’s psychic journeys when she is investigating the curse. I’ve never read a book where the character’s psychic abilities were described so clearly and it really helped me to relate to the character.

The vivid descriptions of Cairo also help the book to come alive for me. I could see the bustling streets of mode

I’ll admit to being a little bit skeptical about reading “The Curse Breaker of Cairo” by Kate McVaugh due to the fact that it is a Paranormal Mystery/Romance. However, I had loved Kate’s writing in her first mystery, “Murder, Jaz and Tel Aviv”, so I thought I would give it a try.

The story takes place in Cairo at Club Cairene where a curse is killing people, especially the musicians. Tangerine has been hired to break the curse. Her first step is to investigate the curse and in so doing ends up t

Generally, writing should show, not tell you things, at least with fiction. This book doesn't do that. It's awkwardly written, poorly paced, the characters are wooden and unengaging, even the sex is passionless and almost clinical. It is at least a fairly original concept, or I'd give one star.

I greatly enjoyed this story. It was quite the page turner for me. I loved the background and the scenery of the book. I loved the interaction between the characters.

Stories have been running through my head for as far back as I can remember. In the most ordinary of places and situations I would often imagine a different, more intriguing reality. It was not until much later in my life that I began to write down some of these tales. My books take place in the foreign lands where I have lived, traveled, and worked.

Most of my working life has been as an educator
