Narrated by: Matthew Whitfield

GoodReads Summary: Carlo Diamante wonders if the beautiful and mysterious woman he keeps seeing is stalking him. If she is stalking him, why does she keep disappearing in the crowd when he approaches her? He wonders if she is just an illusion. Perhaps she is a dream woman created by his vivid imagination. Carlo finally confides in his very ill sister who tells him there is something very special about this woman and that Carlo needs to find her.

Meanwhile, another mystery is unfolding in the jungles of the Amazon. Carlo doesn’t know it yet but there is a connection between the mystery girl on the subway and the mystery unfolding in the jungle?

Carlo has never believed in miracles, but his life is about to change forever. Maybe miracles are real.

This book contains sexual situations and is recommended for young adults.

3.5 stars

(I received a free audible copy in exchange for an honest review.)

I’m not confident in the label of adventure for this. Sure, there’s travel. And there’s travel in faraway places. But it’s less adventure and more of a quest that leads Carlo outside his comfort zone and into another culture.

It has some paranormal elements that make bits of it a mystery. But it comes across as more of a paranormal romance than anything else. Yet, it is a sweet and a very different type of romance than I’ve ever read.

Everything about this story is soft: the love (even though powerful), the adventure, the bit of mystery, the tiniest bit of danger, and the narration.

For a peaceful afternoon, this is a nice read.
