Ms. Miller steps away from the chilling elements typically found in her stories and takes us into a sweltering `Jungle of Deceit'. For me the suspense pulled this story along; the mildly romantic subplot took a back seat to the mysteries that were filtered throughout this book.

A beautifully descriptive setting, typical of Ms. Miller, shows us a hidden compound deep within the jungle that provides little sense of comfort for her characters. The details of Mayan artifacts and those who search to uncover them, or those who wish to profit off of them, are also well written. However, the hero and heroine lacked something I'm not quite able to put my finger on in this particular tale. She makes it work though - the books is about more than exchanging witty digs in avoidance of the inevitable, there is intense adventure in which two people are trying to find out the truth about the compound, their roles in the plan and the deceit of those in their lives. Love develops as a consequence, I get that.

In short, Ms. Miller always pulls through with an enjoyable page turning read and we should look forward to her next piece.

Dr. Alexandra Langley is a woman trying to get out from under the shadow of her famous archeologist father, Franklin. It seems no matter what she does in the field, his name looms large. When an opportunity comes up to look for lost Mayan artifacts in the jungle of Guatemala, she jumps at the chance to lead her own expedition. She runs her group with an iron hand. She must not show any weakness or vulnerabilities, that is, until photo-journalist Mitch Hasslet joins her team.

Mitch has his own demons to overcome from a past war assignment. When he accepts the assignment from the enigmatic Museum Director, Mr. Nicholson, to track a stolen shipment of Mayan artifacts, he has no idea that he would be joining Alex's team.

Sparks fly between Mitch and Alex and not always in a good way. Ms. Miller does a good job of revealing the back-stories for both of the main characters while weaving an intense and engaging storyline. Searching for Mayan artifacts in the jungle has its own perils especially when the team stumbles into an area known as "No Man's Land." The jungle comes alive with vivid descriptions, almost too vivid. It made me realize that I never want to visit there--the humidity, the mosquitoes and the screeching night sounds are definitely not for me, but it's a sign of excellent writing when you're so immersed in a story that you start to feel itchy right along with the characters.

Jungle fires, lies, deception and a fight for their lives make JUNGLE OF DECEIT a romantic suspense story at its best. This is the second story I've read by Ms. Miller and I have no problem recommending her books highly to fans who want more than a typical romance story.

I like mild romance - not over the top romance - mysteries with twists, turns and guessing who done it and Jungle of Deceit has all of these things.

I liked the location, Guatemala, but I would not have liked being in the jungle. At one point Dr. Alex and Mitch were chatting in the jungle and Alex kept saying Mitch several times to get him to stop talking and listen to her for a second but Mitch kept talking so Alex reached down and picked up a (can't tell you what-spoiler) and when Mitch saw her he just stared - if I were there I would of been saying "come on feet don't fail me now" and I'd of been gone for sure.

I like Maureen's right to the point descriptions of all the characters, places and things like the the artifacts, the jungle etc. Maureen never goes on and on in the 3 books I have read of hers.

Maureen started out as an indie author a few years back so I can say " I knew her writing when she was a indie and she now has a publisher congratulations Ms.Miller) and I will still read her stories now that her dream has come true for her !!

Jungle of Deceit is yet another Maureen A. Miller winner from the very beginning to the very last page. Keep them coming please :>)

I recommend the 3 books I have read by Maureen.

Doctor Alex Langley is a tough (on the outside) archaeologist, her estranged father the esteemed Doctor Franklin Langley. When it comes to men, she has serious trust issues. Enter Mitch Hasslet, a digs photographer foisted on her by the Museum of Art and Antiquities, who has his own agenda...

Adventure, romance, mystery, thrills, twists... Jungle of Deceit has them all. The sultry Guatemalan jungle complete with mosquitoes (made me itch) is more than simply a backdrop - it's integral to the story and a character in its own right. Deceit is all around.

Miller's fluid and easy writing style makes for a fast, page-turning read. Engaging and entertaining. Highly recommended.

This was my third book from Maureen Miller! As with her other books I enjoy how she takes her hero and heroine on a journey together. They don't meet and instantly fall in love, but they get to know each other through crazy circumstances and that pushes them together. It seems more real and believable to me. Maureen has very descriptive writing that makes you feel as though you are in the story - you can feel the elements, the fear, and the love. I wasn't sure about this book at the beginning - meaning I wasn't sure about the story line as it was different than what I have read in the past, but once I got started I was really hooked and wanted to follow all the paths to the end. I enjoyed Mitch and Alex's interactions and wanted to find out more about Phillip and the compound. There was enough romance throughout the book, too. As with her other books, it is sweet romance that I like - a look here, a kiss there, a touch, a comforting embrace, leading up to tasteful intimate scenes. All of Maureen's books have been fun for me, as they have taken me on a journey I would (hopefully) never be on! Now I just have to pick out which book of hers to read next!
