London, 1888. As colorful and unfettered as the butterflies she collects, Victorian adventuress Veronica Speedwell can’t resist the allure of an exotic mystery—particularly one involving her enigmatic natural historian colleague, Stoker. His former expedition partner has vanished from an archaeological dig with a priceless diadem unearthed from the newly discovered tomb of an Egyptian princess. The disappearance is just the latest in a string of unfortunate events that have plagued the controversial expedition, and rumors abound that the curse of the vengeful princess has been unleashed.

But the perils of an ancient curse are not the only challenges Veronica must face, as sordid details and malevolent enemies emerge from Stoker’s past.

5.0 A Treacherous Curse
I knew when I read the opening chapter about phalluses that this book was going to be good! Lol : ) I think it's the best out of the three actually. I loved the Egyptology and archaeology storyline.

4.0 A Treacherous Curse (Veronica Speedwell, #3)
