Publisher's Summary

From New York Times and USA Today best-selling author, Leylah Attar, comes a compelling, emotionally resonant new novel, set against the lush backdrop of the Serengeti.
Once in Africa, I kissed a king....
"And just like that, in an old red barn at the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, I discovered the elusive magic I had only ever glimpsed between the pages of great love stories. It fluttered around me like a newborn butterfly and settled in a corner of my heart. I held my breath, afraid to exhale for fear it would slip out, never to be found again."
When a bomb explodes in a mall in East Africa, its aftershocks send two strangers on a collision course that neither one sees coming.
Jack Warden, a divorced coffee farmer in Tanzania, loses his only daughter. An ocean away, in the English countryside, Rodel Emerson loses her only sibling.
Two ordinary people, bound by a tragic afternoon, set out to achieve the extraordinary, as they make three stops to rescue three children across the vast plains of the Serengeti - children who are worth more dead than alive.
But even if they beat the odds, another challenge looms at the end of the line. Can they survive yet another loss - this time of a love that's bound to slip through their fingers, like the mists that dissipate in the light of the sun?
"Sometimes you come across a rainbow story-one that spans your heart. You might not be able to grasp it or hold on to it, but you can never be sorry for the color and magic it brought."
Mists of the Serengeti is inspired by true events and contains emotional triggers, including the death of a child.

This book was very different from my normal taste. I enjoyed the setting of Tanzania, Africa and I also was very interested in the humanitarian side of this story, the political violence that started this story and the unlikely love story all in one. These two are brought together because of violence and grief and they really helped each other move forward. I think my favorite thing was the ending, I love that we get a flashback from before this book started and got closure for some questions I still had. The one thing I didn't really like was the lack of descriptions. I couldn't tell you what the characters looked like nor do I have much of a vision in my head of of the setting or places they were. I also couldn't wrap my head around Jack and how he was born in Tanzania but sounded and acted completely american?? It didn't effect the story line but I just like to imagine the people and places when I listen to a book.

The narration was GREAT!! Megan Tusing was amazing, she really brought Rodel to life! Zachary Webber was great as always, he always brings so much to his characters!

Absolutely the best book of 2017 so far!

The story was beautifully written and perfectly narrated. I loved every minute, from the first sentence to the ironic end. Will definitely be reading more from this author.

Enjoyable - would recommend

Was recommended this author from a friend. I enjoyed the wonderful range of emotions the storytelling took me through, and it was very easy to feel in the moment in the scenes and scenarios. Some of the characters were very 'Hollywood' in their description and the plot/story arch panned out fairly predictably.

My only gripe was that I didn't much enjoying the narrators - the accents were a bit all over the place and they didn't seem to be able to add tempo or nuances in the right places. And how they pronounced some words sounded like computer-generated pronunciations; a bit robotic and therefore spoiling the sentence as you had to replay it to make sure you heard it correctly.

But I did enjoy it and would probably buy the book version so I can read it in my own voice to fully appreciate it.
