THE MUSEUM OF MYSTERIES Synopsis:
In the French mountain village of Eze, Cassiopeia visits an old friend who owns and operates the fabled Museum of Mysteries, a secretive place of the odd and arcane. When a robbery occurs at the museum, Cassiopeia gives chase to the thief and is plunged into a firestorm.
Through a mix of modern day intrigue and ancient alchemy, Cassiopeia is propelled back and forth through time, the inexplicable journeys leading her into a hotly contested French presidential election. Both candidates harbor secrets they would prefer to keep quiet, but an ancient potion could make that impossible. With intrigue that begins in southern France and ends in a chase across the streets of Paris, this magical, fast-paced, hold-your-breath thriller is all you’ve come to expect from M.J. Rose and Steve Berry.

My visit today had a dual purpose since Nicodème had told me that he’d acquired some exquisite 15th century tiles that he thought might be perfect for one of the buildings. He’d helped me many times over the years with the castle. I appreciated his interest as his suggestions were always on target.
“What is this?” I had asked, pointing to the wooden box on the counter before Hildick-Smith arrived. “It looks like something my father would have loved.”
“He would have. The box itself is medieval, probably 13th century. But what’s inside dates back much further. It’s filled with ancient potions used by healers.”
“Witches,” I’d whispered.
The wise women had always interested me—maligned by men who didn’t understand their talents, sexuality, or intelligence. Not witches. Merely observant experts in the healing arts, which had far more to do with chemistry than magic. I’d borrowed a few books from Nicodème’s shelves over the years about the dark arts and its various practitioners. What was the most common charge form the time? As a ghost, they appeared and disappeared.
Just like Hildick-Smith.
What was happening here? That wooden box? Elixers?
“This could be a most important item,” Nicodème had said to Hildick-Smith, touching the lid of the intriguing box.
“I heard you acquired it a few years ago. So I came to see if you would sell it to me.”
“I’m afraid not.”
“I’ll double what you paid for it.”
“It is not for sale.”
A moment later Peter Hildick-Smith drew a gun, took the box, and fled the shop.
Now he was gone.

I have loved these two authors separately for years now; so getting to read a joint work of theirs was an amazing experience! This novella takes you right into the middle of the story from the first lines, and Cassiopeia is a heroine that any modern girl can relate too. I so desperately want this landscape and Museum to be real, and I so desperately want to lose myself among its exhibits. I was swept away by the writing, and this is an easy one day read that doesn't need much background given. Additionally, I would like to thank the authors for their dedication to this history; the research, the meticulous and careful writing, the originality of the story, and most importantly, for the Kings.
