Ann (bookwoman247) | 1 comments I'm new to the Amelia Peabody series, and loving it! I'm on the third book in the series, now, and plan to read them through until I either become sated or until I finish the series. They're absolutely wonderful!!!

Something that I've noticed are what seem to be veiled references to historic figures, (not necessarily ancient Egyptian), or to works of literature. I don't want to give anything away, so I'll just ask if anyone else has noticed this? It makes the series even more fun!!!! It's like a literary treasure hunt!

Does the author do this in her work as Barbara Michaels as well?

Susie John | 1 comments As to finishing the only gets better! Peabody and Emerson are truly one of the most magnificent couples in literary history [series-wise]. But the real draw for me is "watching" Ramses grow - and become the man he won't want to miss that... Once you get to "The Last Camel Died at Noon" you are hooked. Have fun!
