The second novel in the Escape to Paradise series brings readers to the hot jungles of Brazil with romance, secrets, revenge and a mysterious sinister element. The characters are freshly written; they are caring, conniving and will do whatever they need to do to achieve their goals. Tyndall is a talented writer, as she brings to life a time in America’s past that divided not only a country but the people as well.
The ragtag colonists have made it to their new home in the Brazilian rainforest in hopes of starting anew after surviving the horrors of the Civil War. But some of them don’t want to be there. In fact, Magnolia is trying to find a way out of the hot, scary jungle to get home to her comfort zone, and she may have found the perfect solution. Hayden has only one thing on his mind: to find his father and make him pay for what he did to him and his mother. First Hayden must find out where his father went, and that means leaving the people who have been nothing but kind to him — and he doesn’t expect a spoiled southern belle to captivate him, almost derailing his plans. Will the mist of the jungle be their undoing? (BARBOUR, Nov., 320 pp., $12.99)
