In June Jenson and the King's Lost Treasure by Emily Harper, readers are taken on an adventure to Egypt after June Jenson finds out about the possibility that the ring of Solomon might indeed exist. June is famous because of the TV show she stars in with her grandfather and his old friend. It is called Blast From the Past and shows June and Co traveling around the world to solve archaeological mysteries. Her grandfather suffers from Alzheimer’s and, together with his friend, he is thinking about retiring. But they are up for one last adventure. Unfortunately, it is an adventure where many things go totally different than planned. June and her team are not the only ones who are looking for the ring that is supposed to have divine powers. An old “friend” turns up on the scene, a supporter turns into an enemy, and a rich and powerful man will stop at nothing to achieve his goals. But is the ring even real?

I found June Jenson and the King's Lost Treasure by Emily Harper to be a short, often funny and entertaining read, something you can easily finish in two or three evenings. I had hoped for a bit more in-depth history and/or information about Egypt, but the novel is more about the adventures June and her team have while looking for the ring. This is not a problem as the story is entertaining enough and whisks you away from your own troubles for a while. It’s a lovely novel to read when you don’t want something that is too involving (or depressing). It’s light literature, probably ideal for reading during a holiday, too! I loved the relationship between the two old men; they were really charming, though I can see how they could be annoying for June. I wonder whether I’d still find them charming if I had to deal with them every day! The twist towards the end of the story was mean, but well done. It keeps readers involved and on their toes.
