"The Amelia Peabody series is a collection of nineteen historical mystery novels, all engendered by Egyptologist Barbara Mertz under the pen name Elizabeth Peters. The series is centered on key figure and protagonist Amelia, for whom the series is named, and an a array of other characters to support her role. The novels entail a mix of romance, mystery, and tad of bit of satire to add to its well-balanced comic tone." so says website Book Series In Order.
What is not mentioned, is Bastet and Anubis, cats who guide their humans to solve the mystery!
I began this series in 2010, when a friend gifted me a copy of the first book, "Crocodile On The Sandbank". I think that I read the entire series, book by book, after that.
I am thankful for that book!
During this pandemic lockdown, I've dipped my toe back into the waters of this delightful series...by audiobook this time...and just finished book 8, "The Hippopotamus Pool".
Although most of this series was written long ago, the storylines hold up well against the angst of today's news and morals; Amelia is a staunch believer that women can do anything that a man can do or better, and she is no shrinking violet!
It's her indomitable spirit, snide asides, and sometimes hilarious Victorian English upbringing that keeps me turning the pages...so to speak.
And...cats! There are cats, and interestingly, the men in the stories seem to be even more cat people than is usual in books.
