Finding Sheba by H.B. Moore, Book Review

Did you know that every year I make a goal to read at least 50 books? I strive to read a mix of fiction and non-fiction with most every genre making an appearance on my to-read list. This year I'm off to a great start, as you might have noticed with my book reviews. Today I'm reviewing a historical fiction thriller by H.B. Moore and it is fantastic!

Finding Sheba has the perfect mix of all of my favorite plot points. In this novel you'll experience thriller aspects, murder, suspense, and high-speed chases. There's also some great romantic tension and plenty of historical underpinnings which, as usual, are right on the money. H.B. Moore's incredible grip on the middle-east, both past and present, is fascinating. The characters move through this story and into the daylight as Moore develops realistic feelings, emotions, and tensions throughout the novel.
I give Finding Sheba 5 stars--it's impressive, fast-paced, and a perfect respite from everyday life!

 Finding Sheba
A modern-day hunt for the Queen of Sheba's tomb
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.
