Tragic stories are common in the ER but nurse Dani takes the blame for a toddler patient’s death personally, confirming her abusive father’s belief that she is inept. To prove her competency and free herself from overwhelming guilt, she volunteers for a humanitarian mission trip to Tanzania where she can focus on doing good.
Prior to leaving, she meets the love of her life, Noah, who says he will wait for her. However, her mission partner/physician, Carter, is a surfer poster boy who has a thing for Dani. Noah’s gut tells him something about the picture perfect doctor is off but the expedition goes on.
Weeks into her trip the mission is savagely attacked by rebels and Dani is a microsecond too late to prevent her coworker from a devastating injury but saves him from certain death…for now. More rebels are on their way and Dani escapes into the jungle with four lives who are now solely dependent on her for their very survival. The ultimate test of her competency has begun.
Was the strike on the mission random, or was she an unsuspecting dupe in a smuggling deal gone bad?
Uncaged Review: I don’t normally read a lot of
romantic suspense, it’s not a genre that I gravitate
to. But the author did a great job pulling me
into this story, with danger, suspense, romance
and some really good plot twists that I didn’t see
coming. Some of the villians in this story don’t
present themselves as bad guys right away, but
slowly you will peel the layers and find the different
characters and their true colors. This book
drew me in, and I had a hard time putting it down.
The end of the book will have the reader glued
and waiting to find out what happens, reading
swiftly to get through it.
Great read, and a high recommendation for the
suspense lovers, and maybe the “not so suspense
readers” also. Reviewed by Cyrene
