Book Rating: 8.5/10
Amusing, fun, and delightfully appealing!
In this novella, we not only get to revisit some of our favourite characters from Coffee, Tea, The Caribbean & Me, but we get an in-depth look into the life of Jo’s hunky talented son, Zach as he embarks on an adventure of survival and self discovery of his own.
The writing is vividly descriptive and fluid. The characters are charming, real, and extremely lovable. And the plot is remarkably entertaining and engaging as it sweeps us back and forth between the English countryside and the jungles of Australia and gives us a little fix of the reality tv we all love, complete with witty dialogue, challenges, food, friendship, family, and romance, as well as a little lesson in the pitfalls of conjecture and the importance of trust.
This truly is a lighthearted, captivating, humorous read with a festive undertone that is perfect for the holidays.
