I Also Recommend:
Imagine being in an accident and surviving with only scratches and find out that the woman you love is in a coma, her family won't let you see her and then after several days she suddenly disappears. He soon learns that there are secrets, secrets that lead him on a race against time as he sets his sights on Rescuing Olivia.
Julie is one amazing storyteller, she had my complete and unobstructed interest from the first page and my house and family be damned, well at least until I closed the book. Her story line is imaginative yet utterly believable. She has an incredible way with words as she spins this tale of intrigue and terror. She takes us on an unconceivable trek from the Florida Oceanside to the African Bush county and her dialogue takes us on a journey for all the senses. Her characters are so well developed that they become our immediate intimates as they make us angry and laugh or cry with them. Her principle characters of Anders and Olivia are exceptionally portrayed and our hearts smiles and weeps with them in equal parts. Her supporting characters are an obvious necessity to the novel and as we realize their particular roles we learn to love, hate or fear them. There is definitely a love story here and she brings it to us through the veil of remembering as well as up close and personal and her love scenes are visceral but sweet in their portrayals. For lovers of great literary fiction don't be put off by the love story, this is not a romance, but the love story is essential.
So get your senses ready for the ride of their lives in this intensely emotional piece of wonderful literary fiction as Julie takes us on a non-stop, nail biting, roller coaster, action filled adventure. An adventure filled with danger and deception but mostly filled with hope as she gives us a compelling look at just what the power of love can do.

In a remote forest in Florida, a hit-and-run motorcycle accident leaves victim Olivia Mayfield in a coma. Stunned upon learning his girlfriend lies in an intensive care unit, almost thirty Anders Erickson feels guilt and regret for not proposing.
Just prior to the accident, someone stole the helmets of Anders and Olivia. Anders also considers that Olivia thought they were being followed. Meanwhile her father pharmaceutical mogul Lawrence blames Anders for his daughter's coma and wants him to stay away from her; he refuses to allow "Andy" access. Later he informs him that Olivia died. Stunned, Anders has a hard time accepting the death of his beloved and begins an inquiry that leads to her hometown of Clifton, Connecticut where he finds clues that sends him to Kenya.
Clearly over the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Rescuing Olivia is a terrific amateur sleuth thriller starring a young man with issues from his childhood that match in some ways those of his beloved as both prefer to live in the present and future. Anders is a refreshing hero who rejects the premise that his beloved died as he feels he would know in his heart if she did. His efforts to find and rescue Olivia make for a wonderful drama.
