You can take the girl out of the city but can you take the city out of the girl?
When Grace is offered the chance of a lifetime, to test out brand new camping equipment in the rainforest – it’s easy to turn down. After all, who in their right mind wants to trek around the muddy rainforest? But when the offer becomes too good to be true and her friends and family doubt her ability, she’s determined to prove them wrong.
When trekking in the Amazon rainforest, most normal people must overcome their fears of the unknown. For city girl Grace Brooks, she must overcome her fears of no makeup and going to the loo. And can she survive for two weeks without her hairdryer?
What could possibly go wrong? Well…everything.
Forced into the rainforest to rescue some bimbo, Patrick Kirk is determined to despise the silly woman. When he finally catches up with her, Grace is less than impressed with her neanderthal rescuer. Patrick too, is less than impressed with the high-maintenance whiner.
Stuck together for at least a week, can they learn to get on or are they destined to kill each other?
“It was all very beauty and the beast – with her starring as both roles”
That about sums up Grace’s experience in the ‘jungle’ as she calls it.
Grace complains a lot however I enjoyed the writer’s metaphors.
Firstly I would like to say thank you to the author for sending me this novel in exchange for an honest review. I only ever do these if I enjoy the sound of the novel.
From the start of this novel, I loved it. I always try to relate to the main character in some way. Grace’s personality is strong and relatable. I mean, a ‘high-maintenance’ girl going camping? I also enjoyed the fact she’s working in marketing in a business field as that’s of my interest as well. Grace and her best friend Olivia’s conversations where a joy to read and made me laugh.
It’s a really interesting plot that had me wondering what’s going to happen next? I want to be in the know.
When Grace is lost in the rainforest we hear her thoughts along with Patrick who really annoyed me at the start as he was so judgemental and arrogant. As he got to know Grace more he started to like her. It was interesting watching them both develop.
Grace learns to not be so superficial needing everything in the rain forest as she learns to go without and actually appreciate nature.
I really enjoyed this read it was entertaining and I found myself laughing at times. The author’s writing style has you wanting to know what happens next and those are the best kind of reads. You must read this if you are looking for an entertaining read! That ending was so cute.
