EYES OF THE DEAD
Contemporary Romance (Should be Romantic Suspense)
Rating: 3 Cups
Tiffany Jensen is a botanist researching a plant that could possibly be a cure for cancer. When her mentor dies, it is up to her to go to the jungle habitat of the plant to get replacement samples.
Antonio Fernandez is an undercover agent for a multinational agency fighting against the drug cartels. He feels responsible for the death of the scientist in his care and the woman who arrived to continue his work is in even more danger.
Tiffany is determined to find a cure for the disease that killed her mother and kills millions of other women, but a dangerous trip into the rain forest without the financial support of her employer is her only chance and she must rely on the mysterious and attractive guide Antonio to help her fid the plant she needs.
This is an exciting tale of suspense with a very strong romance between the two main characters. Their love scenes are very well written and sensual and the plot is very exciting at points. The two main characters are likable, especially Tiffany. The descriptions of the setting and the trip into the jungle are very vivid. The dialogue can get a little preachy at times and the plot line is a bit predictable, but overall this is a very enjoyable story with an interesting setting and strong characters.
