WOW! What a great book! I enjoyed every page of it! I'm about to put Nicholson's other books are on my reading list.
What a charming book! It was refreshing to be reminded that it is the simple things in life that make life worth living. Sometimes those of us who are older need to be reminded of this!
I would recommend this book to both young and old readers alike.
I found only two or three of the short stories captivating. Overall the book was good.
This was really an enjoyable book. The plot was interesting with the missing person who has a will that is full of twisting clauses that could allow anyone to inherit his estate. This allows the story to point to several people as possible suspects. Add to this the Victorian style romance amid Egyptian archaeological research and you have the makings of a very good story. The plot thickens as the book goes on and towards the end you begin to wonder if the truth will ever get unraveled.
I was able to figure out some of what happened and who did it, but the why part escaped me. This is revealed in the end and makes us to wonder why some people will do what they do for nothing more than greed.
All in all it was a nice book to read.
