EVERY SERENGETI SUNRISE by Rula Sinara!


Every Serengeti Sunrise (From Kenya, With Love #4)Every Serengeti Sunrise by Rula Sinara

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Every Serengeti is the fourth book in the From Kenya with Love series by Rula Sinara. This was my first read by Sinara. Overall the book has some very heart felt emotions and can be an emotional roller coaster as we read the story of Maddi, Haki, and Pippa. Three childhood friends.

Maddi has been away from her friends for years. When she shows up to support her cause she is shocked to see Haki standing on the other side. As they battle for common ground they also battle a constant pull for each other in which they can not act upon. Pippa and Haki are set to be married.

This was the hardest part of the book for me. I don't do triangles well. Other than that I enjoyed the read.

Elephants, Africa’s wild savannah and three best friends…

When attorney Maddie Corallis returns to Kenya to fight a humanitarian vs animal rights case, the last thing she expects is for her childhood friend, wildlife veterinarian Haki Odaba, to be the very man she’s up against. Loyal and protective, Haki would never turn his back on the elephants he’s devoted to saving, any more than Maddie could abandon the native tribes she’s come to protect. An impossible battle…but nothing compared to the fight they face when old feelings surface and the soul-deep connection they’ve always shared threatens the worst kind of betrayal...that of their dearest friend Pippa. The one Haki is expected to marry.

Denying their feelings is torture, but giving in is not an option. Not with the suffering it would cause. Besides, Maddie left Kenya once and she’ll be leaving again soon. An ocean, a case and a friend between them. Maybe love can’t always find a way…or can it?

A Family for Christmas by Tara Taylor Quinn

A Family for Christmas (Where Secrets Are Safe #13)A Family for Christmas by Tara Taylor Quinn

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars


A family for Christmas is the thirteenth book in the Where Secrets Are Safe series by Tara Taylor Quinn. I am having a hard time with this book. I felt that the book lacked proper concentration on the hero and heroine. Cara and Simon needed more focus on them and not what was happening with Cara's daughter. Overall I enjoyed the read.
