Jungle Eyes based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
One of the things I love about reviewing is that I often times read a book that I would never have found without reviewing or most likely wouldn’t have picked up had I seen it; and this is one of those times I’m so happy I got to. Jungle Eyes by Lindsay Marie Miller is a Historical Romance Adventure. Set in 1899, the book starts out in New York, where we meet Henry Rochester. He’s good looking, privileged and bored. When he sets out on an ocean journey with his best friend Charles, that’s when the story gets going. There is action, adventure, trials, and love. I’m not normally a big historical romance reader, but I thought this was beautifully done. The dialogue was accurate, the locations were beautifully described. Henry and Elaine are true to their age (both chronological and the era win which they live). They are real people, with real flaws. Sometimes they are frustrating, and infuriating, but then you fall in love with them again, as they fall for one another. I read this book in about five hours. I didn’t want to put it down without knowing how it ended. I laughed, I was moved, I even cried. The dangers they encounter are exciting and nail biting. Miller has an easy style of writing, with a perfect amount of description. I could see everything. She pulls us in and holds us there to the end. Miller has done a wonderful job pulling the reader into this delightful fictitious piece of the past. I look forward to reading the next two installments in this trilogy.
