Not Exactly Eden by Linda Windsor ~ 4 stars

Not Exactly Eden
Linda Windsor

About the book:
When debutante Jenna Marsten breaks off her engagement a week before her wedding, she's sure life can't get any worse. But among the gifts to be returned is a strange that came anonymously. Further investigation reveals the statue is from a remote tribe of the Amazon rain forest- and that it came from Jenna's supposedly deceased father! Soon Jenna finds herself in Peru, seeking the love of the father who abandoned her and meaning for her fractured future. And Dr. Adam DeSanto-a handsome, bitter widower who helps her father run a jungle hospital, and who happens to loathe "women like Jenna"-is only complicating matters. Then Jenna's life is put at risk. Helpless to save her, Adam cries out to the God he rejected at his wife's death. God hears and answers in ways neither Adam nor Jenna could imagine, finally resolving their pain and renewing their faith in Himself, the future-and each other.

My review:
I loved the plot in this book: Jenna is going into the jungle to reunite with her long-lost father, and in the process she meets her one true love. Like a fairy tale, only with a steamier prince. Sigh. Adam is just about my dream guy. Tall, dark, handsome, and great with kids. He has once-burned-twice-shy syndrome and won’t allow himself to fall for Jenna, who, at first glance, seems a lot like his first wife. But, as they spend more time together he starts to see that they aren’t alike at all where it counts. I loved the feel of this book and would definitely recommend it.
