After three failed seasons, American heiress Syble Rinecroft is more than ready to move forward to a life of independence and adventure. And what better way to begin than by taking a trip to Egypt with her grandmother and her band of widowed friends to find a hidden tomb? There’s only one catch: the archaeologist the widows insist on employing is none other than the irritating Marcus Brandt whom Syble met years ago on another trip to Egypt. If Syble has any hope of finding the tomb and being known for something other than being too vivacious to make anyone a suitable wife, she’ll have to learn to work with Marcus.
British archaeologist Marcus Brandt has only ever wanted one thing - a discovery in Egypt that will bring him the acclaim that has eluded his career. Such a thing will surely be found in the tomb he is presently clearing. So when his wealthy patroness and her friends, including Marcus’ grandmother, seek his help in finding a hidden tomb, he’s reluctant to agree to the new dig - especially when it involves daily interaction with Syble Rinecroft, the annoying girl he met eight years ago.
Compelled to do the dig for different reasons, Syble and Marcus finally agree to work together, in spite of their opposite approaches to life. As the days pass, though, they discover there may be more to each other and their growing friendship than either expected to find.

Sweet and Entertaining
No stress entertaining. The wandering widows were fun. Sybil and Marcus as young people set the stage for their love story. I enjoyed Among Sand and Sunrise but It could have had a bit more tension and a widow or two less.
