Overview

Daisy Gumm Majesty has put her Ouija board aside, following her husband's passing. Only when Mrs. Pinkerton's daughter is arrested does Daisy pick it up again, and is immediately rewarded with useful information.

Mrs. P is so delighted she pays Daisy an enormous amount of money, which comes in handy when Mrs. P's son (and Daisy's best friend) insists Daisy accompany him on a trip to Egypt.

Arriving in Cairo, Daisy makes an innocent purchase of a unique canopic jar and lands in the middle of a smuggling ring.

Convinced Daisy is in trouble, Sam hies himself to Egypt where he joins the spiritualist/sleuth in an adventure that will last a lifetime.

    Charming historical cozy!

    This is the first book I have read in this series, but it was such a delight that I’m going to backtrack and read the other books. The series takes place in California during the early 1920s--when Prohibition was in full swing. Daisy Gumm Majesty helps support her family--Ma, Pa, Aunt Vi and dachshund Spike--by doing spiritual readings for the privileged class. While Daisy knows she can't really commune with the Other Side, her engaging and caring ways make her highly successful at her profession. In Ancient Spirits, Daisy has just lost her beloved young husband to suicide--he’d been damaged by mustard gas during WWI and could no longer bear the pain. She is so deeply depressed that her kind and fabulously wealthy friend, Harold, persuades her to travel to Egypt with him, where he hopes she’ll recover from her doldrums. But things go horribly awry there, and Daisy and Harold find themselves in deadly danger. The ending truly warms the heart, as Daisy finds herself returning to the land of the living, with the possibility of a sweet romance brightening her future.

    A gentle read. Entertaining.

    I have read several of these books, and found them to be an easy ¿read. The characters are growing somewhat though shallow for the most part. Wouldn't make a good book discession book, but rather one to sit by the fire and enjoy with a cup of tea or glass of wine.

    Great Escape

    I have found all of the Daisy Gumm Majesty Mysteries to be a fun, wholesome escape. I like historical novels and this one satisfies. Similar to the other books in the series, there is a lot of repetition about what happened in previous installments, but I still enjoy getting away to 1920's Pasadena (and Egypt).
