Finding Sheba Blog Tour Review

Finding Sheba  Finding Sheba by H.B. Moore An ancient legend is reborn . . . One that might prove the Bible false. For centuries, historians have theorized the Queen of Sheba as only a seductive legend, and scholars have debated over the legitimacy of King David or King Solomon. When undercover Israeli agent, Omar Zagouri, stumbles onto a tomb in Northern Jerusalem he unknowingly finds the final clue that threatens to overthrow government claim to the Holy Land, pits wealthy collectors against one another, and sends ruthless archaeologists scrambling to find the queen’s secret burial place. An assassination attempt on the Coptic Pope, His Holiness, Patriarch Stephanus II, is only the first in the chain of lethal crimes. Omar must find a way to prevent the greatest discovery of the century from becoming the most deadly.

My Review:
Again, I love a fiction book that teaches me about history with a fun, intriguing story. Quickly setting up the book, the chapters are flipping between Egypt, Jerusalem, Arabia and Rhode Island. Just enough information in each to set up the story. Of course, just a slight glimpse into each character’s perspective is enough to grab hold of your attention and make you want to keep reading.

Omar Zagouri and Mia have their hands full working together and working things out. Jade arrives to intern for the summer with Dr. Morel. Obviously they are also working things out. And the whole reason the book was written was Queen Sheba. All of these stories interwoven make for a great read.

Obviously having done a lot of research, and it does talk about that in the few pages before the book, the story is well put together. I do enjoy historical fiction that centers around a true event, whether any of the factual information is included or not. This book was enjoyable and well written. Not a fluff story or quick read, but worth your time.
