"Deadly Safari" by Lisa Harris

About this book:

  Texas Ranger Alex Markham lands an unusual assignment—protecting an ambassador's daughter on the African savanna. No one—not even wildlife filmmaker Meghan Jordan herself—can know his true identity. The stubborn but beautiful Meghan is nothing like the bookish woman he expected…and neither is his unguarded reaction to her. For the cowboy-turned-cop, the routine babysitting assignment turns into a lifesaving mission when poachers target the unsuspecting beauty. But when Meghan learns the truth of Alex's identity, can she forgive him before their chances for a future are destroyed forever?”

My personal Rating-
{Not for sensitive animal lovers}
This wasn’t my favorite by this suspense author because of the animal cruelty mentioned. However, I often found the photography and videography parts interesting. I also thought it was really neat to read a book set in the country that the author and her family are missionaries in! :)

See y’all on Friday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
