BRIGHT STAR SAFARI
Rating: 3 Cups
Amanda has left her home and her job to live at Kwezi Ranch. Her Aunt Emily left her one-third of the ranch with a nephew and the ranch manager. It is a totally different way of life, but she loves it.
Greg is determined to keep Kwezi the way Emily envisioned it. The ranch provides an opportunity to see wildlife in a protected environment, but ecotourism is not for everyone. Basil, who owns one-third, wants to turn it into a hunting lodge.
When Amanda inherits one third of Kwezi, she has no idea of the antipathy between the two other partners. Greg wants to keep the lodge as it is, with no hunting, and Basil wants the easy money that a hunting lodge will bring. She finds herself the deciding vote and does not know who to trust. While she makes up her mind, her life is threatened and poachers get bolder and bolder, endangering the wildlife she has come to love.
This story has a wonderfully exotic setting that caught my interest in the beginning and the well written story held my attention. The characters are well developed and complex and I found myself very interested in Amanda and her life. There are moments of drama and suspense and Amanda’s love life could get a little complicated at times. The movie star and his entourage made for some interesting moments and added to the romantic tension of more than one character. Willem makes a very good villain and the subplot of Gloria and Paul’s troubled romance, and Amanda’s controlling ex make the story more interesting.
