Please help me welcome today’s guest, Adam Mann who is sharing a hot romantic suspense!
Jennifer, an accountant in Thailand, watches a television programme about two strangers, a man and woman, who spend twenty one days in a remote area with only a machete and a flint between them. They have no clothes, food or water but have to survive. They build their shelter, find food and water.
Jennifer lives in Bangkok and gets cross when the man on the TV programme who stupidly refuses to work in cooperation with the woman!
She challenges some of her friends on the social media network, determined that she could to a better job than either of the contestants, and her challenge is accepted by a farmer, Charles, living near in East London in South Africa.
They see what each other looks like from the photos on Twitter, and they exchange backgrounds. They start planning their adventure, and try their hardest not to cheat, but they have no back-up team and have to organise everything themselves, and initially without their families knowing.
She has just recovered from a divorce, and he is single, and they chose a remote area in the highlands between Thailand and Laos.
The remote area randomly chosen by them does provide them with a small stream and a variety of plants and vegetables. Charlie manages to catch a fish and they both use the local resources based on their life experiences, but neither is a survival specialist.
It is fortunate that they liked one another, but the trouble starts as they begin to fall in love.
Perhaps the best way to describe the ending to this novel is the final paragraph;
“This is akin to paradise, darling,” she said as they swam together in the warm sea close to Charlie’s house, “I’ve got a baby coming, a wedding ring, and a husband and soon I’ll get an engagement ring. It doesn’t really matter if they were in the wrong order! And the honeymoon came first!”
