Jul 03, Montzalee Wittmann rated it really liked it. It has a great and silly plot, fun characters, crazy antics, and bad guys galore. I enjoyed the fun antics and dialogue, the action and snarky wit, the comments that I had to think twice about they were so clever and I am not, lol and the fun read as a whole. This is the second book in the series and I have enjoyed each.
Sep 19, Linda rated it it was amazing. All they had to do was get from Cairo to the Temple of Taporisis Magna alive. However, not everyone is who they say they are and they find themselves running for their lives. The non-stop action starts in the first chapter with Wendy hurling a large glass ashtray, the only weapon she could find, into the nose of an assassin on their sixth floor hotel room balcony in Cairo, sending him toppling over the railing.
His body apparently disappears from the sidewalk and Wendy and Roger are followed on a comedic run through a crowded Egyptian market place. Poor Wendy, she is one smart gal and very capable, but things just seem to happen to her. Unsurprisingly, Wendy soon becomes instrumental in being able to fulfill their quest. Then there is the mystery of who is legit and who is involved in the antiquities black market. The way Ms. Silkstone plays with words is unrivaled and the way she incorporated segments from favorite movie clips was genius.
She uses sharp wit throughout her stories, her plots are strong, and the action nonstop. I really enjoyed reading about Wendy and her tomb raiding adventures and hope to see more of Habib and quite possibly Tickemoff, the friendly street peddler, in future Wendy Darlin books. FYI: This story stands on its own, and is young adult appropriate. May have received a free review copy. Sep 29, Mary rated it it was amazing. Give me a Barbara Silkstone book and I am thrilled; make it a Wendy Darlin book and I am head over heels; turn the main love interest into a guy with Johnny Depp eyes, and I will be lost in that story until the final page.
Silkstone does such a fabulous job of blending mystery, thrills and chills with slap-stick comedy. I have never read any other books that had me gasping, trying to figure out how these characters are going to get out of this new mess and then gasping for air, laughing so hard Give me a Barbara Silkstone book and I am thrilled; make it a Wendy Darlin book and I am head over heels; turn the main love interest into a guy with Johnny Depp eyes, and I will be lost in that story until the final page. I have never read any other books that had me gasping, trying to figure out how these characters are going to get out of this new mess and then gasping for air, laughing so hard at the crazy way they actually get out of these situations.
Oh, the mind of Barbara Silkstone! And be on your toes- it isn't dumbed-down humor; this is what I would call smart humor. This newest Wendy Darlin mystery is my favorite. The new characters introduced are fantastic and make the story come alive. I love the addition of Wendy's newest friend, a tiny librarian-turned-sex expert, searching for her own Egyptian treasure.
This book starts off with a bang from the very first paragraph and from there Wendy and her archeologist boyfriend Roger are off and on the hunt for their treasure, being chased through Cairo. You don't need to read the other books in the series to read this one, but why wouldn't you want to? Wendy and Roger are so much fun; you won't want to miss a minute of their adventures together.
Jan 30, Brenda Perlin rated it it was amazing. This story is fun and edgy. Had me humored from the start. It was an adventure I was ready to take.
The writing is crisp, clever and sharp with dialog that felt natural and realistic. The escapades made me feel like I was on a magical ride from a scene in the movie Indiana Jones. Cairo Caper was complete joy. I was naked as a volleyball player at a nudist colony. I put my hands over my hoohah and my forearm across my boobs in the classic naked-woman-caught-in-the-headlights pose. I spun a three-sixty. The passageway was empty. Sweet relief. I tried to push past Roger. Sep 15, Yvonne Taylor rated it it was amazing. Once again Barbara Silkstone has blown me away with her wit, and imagination.
Wendy has such a way of getting herself into so much trouble, and with her sexy man Roger Jolly by her side, she once again is in over her head. While in Egypt looking for the the tomb of Cleopatra, Wendy meets Fiona Feelgood, an author in Egypt doing researchbon a book she is calling Erotica for Dummies.
She has latched herself onto Wendy and won't let go. There are also times when Wendy can feel a cat rubbing up against her ankles, but there is no cat. Is this just a figment of her imagination? This book was so much fun. I caught myself glued to my kindle giggling to myself, with a great big smile.
James Barrington is a man on a fast track to a stellar legal career. People who bought this also bought They are friends. Thank you, all. Nobody talks about it, but it happens all the time. Granted, the way they do so isn't always conventional, but at least they find a silver lining beneath every dark cloud.
Sep 05, Scott Collins rated it really liked it. Wendy Darlin is off on another adventure, this time to Egypt. Tagging along with Roger Jolly, Wendy is in search of the lost tomb of Cleopatra. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about her escapades and adventures. Great action along with a wonderful sense of humor kept the story active and light and the different characters introduced throughout the book kept me laughing the whole time. Thank you to Barbara Silkstone for another wonderful read! Jan 12, Alisha Tarran rated it really liked it.
Wendy Darlin, real estate broker to the rich, and part time Tomb Raider, is joining her lover archaeologist Roger Jolley in the quest for Cleopatra's tomb. The location of Cleopatra and Antony's tomb has never been found, but armed with Antony's half of a medallion, what looks like a radioactive tampon and a phantom cat, they're determined to succeed where others have failed. But first they have to make it from Cairo to the Temple of Taporisi Magna alive, fending off Russian Oligarch's and Roger Wendy Darlin, real estate broker to the rich, and part time Tomb Raider, is joining her lover archaeologist Roger Jolley in the quest for Cleopatra's tomb.
Armed with one high heel and one red sneaker, a couple of ashtrays and librarian turned erotica author obsessed with Cleopatra's Karma Sutra, they face a trek across the blazingly hot dessert, and the off crocodile on the Nile. Not to mention the Dark Forces mercenaries who's loyalties lie with the highest bidder I wasn't sure what to expect with this, I received this from NetGalley thinking it might be a bit of fun, with some history, action and romance, and I wasn't far off the mark.
This is hands down the funniest book I've read in a while. I found myself chuckling along, or outright laughing until tears streamed down my face and people where looking at me like I'd lost the plot. Cairo Caper is what the title says I can so picture this being made in to fantastically hilarious movie. It's fast paced, and full of action, as well as historical tidbits. The flow of the book is smoother than Barry White. The prose is concise and to the point, there's no reams of endless and pointless information, as I said, it's fast and smooth. We travel effortlessly across Egypt in boats, on camels and in a flowery car.
Not to mention being introduced to a Camapoo which I now want badly! Wendy is my spirit animal. I really love her. She's totally hilarious, honest, snarky and not afraid to clonk bad guys over the head with an ash tray should the situation arise. I loved her relationship with Roger, the little jealousies, and the overall realness of the romance.
It wasn't gushing fluff, it was realistic and blended perfectly with the action aspect. It wasn't made the sole focus of the book. The wording used in the book by Wendy was just so real and current, the constant snarks about Darcy where my favourite. The little stand off's between those two had me in fits, not to mention poor old Roger being caught in the middle and terrified of blood.
Roger was kind of badass and heroic, and like a muscled archaeologist hottie one minute, and then his geekiness shines through at other moments, as I said, very realistic. I loved how Wendy would have to take charge sometimes, particularly if blood was involved, and she was often her own hero, as well as everyone else's.
The plot was fantastic. A total comedy caper with plenty of action, the mystery element of the phantom cat and trying to work out who the bad guys where among the assortment of bad guys running around. I couldn't guess the little plot twists at all. Cairo Caper has fast cemented itself in my favourites list that I'll re-read again and again, and I can't wait to delve in to Wendy's world again.
Featuring a down to earth, realistic protagonist, and a winding comedic journey across the desert; Cairo Caper is fast paced, action packed, and full of hilarious and quotable lines that will have you laughing until you cry!
