Thank you to the author and Rachel’s Random Resources for providing me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
Now, this is a book I really needed to be reading heading into winter! After discovering a cheating husband Connie heads to Tanzania for a well-deserved retreat. Not only did it feel like I got to escape to Tanzania alongside Connie but this was an incredibly evocative and well-written book which really allowed me to get lost in the story. It was great to see Connie evolve as a character as she deals with her divorce and a few other surprises which are thrown her way. It was also great getting to see hotel life and traveling and all that it entails. A really awesome four star read!
Would I read again: Yes
