That Treasure Most Rare
April inherits the sad business of sorting out the ghosts of a loved one’s life.
Digging into family chaos in the middle of a miserable Midwestern summer.
Michele hopes to discover gems tucked into all the clutter.
To rescue artifacts of past glory from a grand city in decline.
Will they recognize the treasure they find in each other?
An excerpt from The Real Treasure in Cairo:
April pulled her spectacular waves of hair back with both hands, but when she let go it popped right back out into the humidified halo.
“I found a couple of chest-of-drawers full of socks and underwear. I think whoever cleaned out the house just brought them over here without even looking inside. So now it’s my…my freaking problem.”
Michele laughed and touched April’s shoulder.
“Our problem. Like I said over the phone, I’m certain we’ll find some wonderful things no matter how it looks right now. And the last thing you need to worry about with me is swearing. If we spend any amount of time together, you’ll be surprised when you don’t hear me let it fly.”
April grinned and laughed for real this time.
“That’s a relief. Because I think this is going to be an all-day-swearing kind of job.”
