The Metropolitan Affair


The Metropolitan Affair is set in New York City in the 1920's. 

Dr. Lauren Westlake is an Assistant curator in the Metropolitan Museum.   She has had an interest in Egyptology since she was a child, trying to follow in her absent father's footsteps. Her relationship with her father is difficult. So when he offers for her to travel with him on an exhibition to Egypt she tries to restore what was broken.

Joe Caravello is a NYPD detective seeking out a ring of forgers selling fake Egyptian artifacts. He asks Lauren to help him find the forgeries that are being sold to the wealthy. 

This is a story you will not want to miss. The story is engaging and page turning. The characters are well written. The mystery is captivating until the end. Good, clean romance with historical research about ancient Egypt and NYC during that time. Jocelyn Green masterfully told the story of family, grief and loss, and faith. 

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book, which I received from the publisher. All opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
