Hed I chuckle The book is about Chicago and the University of Chicago s Oriental Institute Get it Egyptian archaeologyI recall hearing the advice given to novelists write what you knowI Here With Me (Together like Shadows not based on how good it is in its genre but on the fact that Iike getting inside the head of this particular authorI was introduced to this author s books by a friend who had actually met the author The author did my friend a favor and introduced my friend to her agent Subseuently the agent got my friend published Shadows is about Haskell who wants to understand her mother who was a student at UC in the field of archaeology Haskell goes to Chicago to meet people who knew her mother The author herself was a student of Egyptian archaeology at UC s Oriental Institute She was writing from a position of knowing what it was ike to be connected to the Oriental Institute Back to the passage from Shadows about editing and publishing There is a series of books about an English woman Amelia Peabody who went to Egypt in the 1880s and became involved with digging At the beginning of the series the author explains that she is telling the story based on journals of this Victorian woman who became and archaeologist and who met the real is telling the story based on journals of this Victorian woman who became and archaeologist and who met the real referred to the in the passage as revered pioneers Breasted who founded the Oriental Institute and Carter who found Tutankhamun I ike Shadows because it is about Barbara Mertz in a fictional setting This isn t a bad book I m not sure if it was the narrator or intentional but there s even humour amid the dark tragedies of secrets meant to stay buried The author Even Manages A Touch manages a touch misdirection which actually works A bit top heavy with the he said she said but all iin all not a bad read at all Search the Shadows tells the tale of an orphan who heads to Chicago to discover her her real father was It s a serviceable mystery but it s not up to the usual high Barbara Michaels standard Had read it before but enjoyed it again even though I did vaguely remember the outcome But Wicked Lies (Men of Summer, living in Chicago now and knowing the University of Chicago and its environs gave me extra enjoyment on this re reading as aarge portion of it is set in Chicago and the U of C area Fun mystery about a young woman who sets out to find out about her mother s ife and figure out who her biological father was and about the trouble dragging up the past brings especially among archaeologists Although I enjoyed the story and mystery I felt ike the book went off on Georgia and the Tycoon long detailed and unneeded storylines The characters were underdeveloped and Michaels conjured romances for the sake of a happy ending To me a good mystery novel has a sense of ambiguity andack of knowledge but Michaels wanted us to know every second of Haskell s day even if it didn t pertain to the central conflict While I was reading I would forget what her goal also was I did enjoy the references of Egyptology and archaeology since I studied those topics in my undergraduate career and found it all fascinating I also enjoyed the final scene when we know the truth about her father and mother It was exciting and I wished there were scenes that were as thrilling. Cost Haskell takes a job at Chicago's famed Oriental Institute in the city where her mother once Churchills Trial lived andoved But as she searched the shadows of the past she finds that the truth can sometimes be dead. Amazingly this is the first Barbara Michaels I ve ever read It was a good page turner and the mystery was satisfyingly atmospheric in its gothicness and twisty with its misdirection The romance however felt sort of tacked on at the end I was pleased to have a ROMANCE WITH AN INTENTIONALLY UNLIKEABLE HEROINE FOR A CHANGE with an intentionally unlikeable heroine for a change s rude and selfish snide towards all other women and feels very ittle sense of guilt over neglecting her relations She also does not hesitate to use any tools available to her to achieve her own ends including people But of course she is also beautiful and unaware of it feeling that her dark coloring makes her unattractive in comparison to her fair skinned and fair haired mother This makes pretty much every man she encounters willing to view spoiler Lakeside Redemption literally hide spoiler Whenever I m not sure what to read next I know I can always pick up a Barbara Michaels book and be able to slip right in They re especially good when I m suffering from a book hangover when you finish a book that was so good you couldn t put it down and when you do finish it way too soon you have trouble pulling yourself out of the world of that book making them I guess a good chaser Haskell Maloney has been raised by her auntosing her mother when an infant and the man she thought was her father before she was even born When as an adult she discovers that man couldn t possibly be her father she sets out to solve the mystery of her parentage going back to the academic world her mother Inhabited In Her Egyptological in her Egyptological When researching her origins she becomes involved with the eccentric crazy and sometimes crazed people her mother interacted with in her own youth She also finds that someone doesn t want her to find out who her father was A good suspense with a In Pursuit of a Princess little romance thrown in and an eclectic cast of characters this got me through my book hangover admirably Now what to read next I very much enjoyed all the specialized knowledge the author had about Egyptian antiuities It sike this book was a precursor to the Amelia Peabody series but set in modern times I had trouble feeling close to the main character tho 4th re read of the year for Barbara Michaels done Barbara Michaels the pen name for Elizabeth Mertz was an Egyptologist for her other career It s expected that the accomplished woman who want to sneak Egyptology themes and settings into even her Gothic work under the Michaels name Even if this book is set with a museum curator s work there is nothing about artifacts and Egyptology here instead the protagonist Haskell obsessed with her mother s death and who her father may actually be is digging through another sort of potent history her own biological treeThe premise is sound the pacing as structured as can be with this kind of story but the plot is too calm It s not enough to warrant a full Second Time Loving length novel so there isaggingAn attempt Kind of dated typewriters and telephones no computers or cell phones but it s not too glaring The book was written in the 80 s and has a slower feel to it I think it was slower to try to build tension but it didn t work too well in my opinion The characters were all somewhat two di.
