Wrapped by Jennifer Bradbury

Regency period romance with Egyptian mysteries, adventure, spies, and an unsuitable love interest. What more could a reader want?
Agnes loves learning – she knows 10 languages, some of which she taught herself. When stressed, she translates lines from the works of A Lady (Jane Austen) into various languages. In her debut season, she is pursued by the season’s biggest catch, Lord Showalter. However, at his Egyptian mummy unwrapping party, Agnes spirits away a relic from inside the wrappings. And this leads her into adventure and romance, the latter not with Showalter, but with Caedmon, an assistant at the British Museum. Maybe, by the end, she will be able to live her dream of riding a camel in Egypt – and being able to use her brain.
I give this one 3.5 stars.
