Diadem of Death (Nefertari Hughes Mystery #2)

Summary from Goodreads:
Nefertari “Terry” Hughes is looking forward to spending the school break with her boyfriend, but when her archaeologist father announces he’s working on a project that will take him to Egypt, all hopes of having a romantic summer are buried.
Terry accompanies her father to Alexandria where she’s reunited with her first crush, Awad—all grown up and an expert in translating hieroglyphics. He confides that the team is in a race to find Cleopatra’s lost tomb before a secret band of rebels steals Egypt’s last Pharaoh and her diadem.
But sabotage and a deadly accident put everyone on high alert, and Terry isn’t sure whom to trust. As the line between ally and enemy begins to blur, Terry has to keep her wits about her and figure out who wants the diadem badly enough to kill.
As much as I love a good romance, the best friend relationship is just as essential to any good story. In Diadem of Death, Terry has her own romantic interests (and distractions), but more importantly it’s the bond she shares with her best friend, Maude that makes this series stand out.
Here Are the Top Ten Reasons Why Every Girl Needs A Trusty Sidekick
- She’ll Let You Ugly Cry
Broken bone or a broken heart? Doesn’t matter, your bestie is there when you need her with Kleenex and ice cream. She’ll be your rock and (if necessary) help you plan an act of revenge or at least a construct a pretend plan to lighten your spirits.
- She Won’t Criticize
Unless of course you need her to voice a strong and colorfully worded negative description of the enemy who has done you wrong. Some friends will tell you to let it go and just forget about it, but a true friend grabs the baseball bat and says, “Where does he live?”
- She Will Always Show Up
A best friend will never stand you up or (and this is the worst) drop your plans to be with a guy.
- She Understands Your Quirks
It’s so nice to be with someone who gets why you like to dip your French fries in chocolate sauce. And she always lets you have the seat that faces the door to the restaurant because you she knows you need to see who is coming and going.
- She’s Free Therapy
Even if it’s only to say, “I’m sorry you’re hurting.” Sharing your problems with someone you trust is as therapeutic as any advice you’d get from a professional. Plus, someone who loves and cares for you will always have your best interest at heart.
- She Is Your Cheerleader
Your best friend never underestimates the power of getting a little support or encouragement at the time when you need it the most.
- She’s Your Person
When you need to hide a body or um …a burnt casserole, you know the one person that will always say yes.
- She Shares Her Stuff With You
Jewelry, make-up, jeans, junk food, dating tips, books … the list goes on. We learn early in life that sharing means caring.
- You Complement Each Other
She’s outgoing, but you’re more of a wallflower. You can think up a comeback in record time, but she always gets flustered. Best friends are often each other’s strengths and weakness. They hold each other up and step in when the other needs help.
- She Calls You Out
This is the toughest, but most crucial aspect of the best friend. She loves you so much she’s unwilling to let you make stupid mistakes. Just ask Neville Longbottom, he earned ten points for Gryffindor because he tried to stop Harry and Ron from sneaking out of the common room. As Dumbledore said, “It takes a great deal of courage to stand up to your enemies, but a great deal more to stand up to your friends.”
