More About the Author

Mary Montague Sikes grew up near the bloody Civil War battlefields of Central Virginia where thousands died. Those early years in a landscape where tears still flowed sparked her interest in the psychic and the paranormal that carries over into her writing today.

Sikes loves to travel, especially to the Caribbean and Jamaica where she discovered the legend of the White Witch of Rose Hall Great House that inspired her first novel, Hearts Across Forever. More psychic encounters in Sedona, Arizona led to her novel, Eagle Rising. Adventures in Antigua became the book, Secrets by the Sea. Then, an escapade in Trinidad developed into the story of Night Watch. Her love of "Indiana Jones" type quests took her to the Maya Ruins of Palenque and eventually directed her to write Jungle Jeopardy.

Always looking for new writing challenges and adventures, Sikes currently is visiting some of the most picturesque National Parks of the west with plans to paint and write about them. Her travels and paintings could result in another coffee table book similar to Hotels to Remember which she researched and developed a few years ago.

When I picked up this book I didn't realize it was a sequel, let alone number five in a series. This is not one of those "If you haven't read the previous book(s), it's okay" kind of books. There are many, many references to the previous book, Secrets by the Sea - murders and tunnels, ghosts and a missing coin among them. You will be much better off if you read Secrets first.

Jungle Jeopardy is a quick read, not too intense and not terribly lengthy. The story starts in Antigua when Clifton is contacted by a stranger about a rare coin his girlfriend's grandfather had been searching for. He is soon traipsing to Costa Rica with Dana, the heroine/girlfriend, following in his wake. And this is where the real fun begins.

The story begins to involve kidnapping, hidden caves, Mayan funerary sites, drug dealers, and a black jaguar. However, things seemed a little too "easy" for me. The ending, especially. Everything just fell into place. There was no struggle, no argument, no need to convince the police who the bad guy really was. I would have liked to see more of a struggle to clean things up.

All in all, not a bad read. If you're looking for a little adventure in a shorter version, this could be it.

When I first started reading this book I thought I must be missing something. Then I looked at the back of this book and realized it was part of a series.But, with small parts of the history that the author gives, I was able to understand what was going on in the story.

This book is filled with adventure, suspense, love and mystery. You will walk along with Dana, Clifton, Tyler and Mick, as they make their way through a wild jungle trying to find a lost cave that is filled with all types of treasures that Dana's grandfather hid there.

They are confronted with drug dealers, and a black jaguar which Dana called Billy, that follows them and has saved them more than once. I have really enjoyed this book, and know that if you like suspense, adventure, mystery and a romance that came alive again you will enjoy this book. It has something for everyone. Rated G

Grab your Tommy Bahama gear and go deep - into the jungle and tangled love lives of Dana and Clifton. Montague Sikes obviously knows both types of terrain. Let this author deport you into the mystical Mayan jungles of Guatemala, where this pair of lovers becomes separated by more than the mountainous topography and overgrown vegetation. Beware! This is a jungle fraught with forces which will either pull the pair apart - or bring them into a richer relationship. And if you believe that what doesn't kill you will only make you stronger, a dark and deadly presence watches their every move. Jump into this page turner, and let the juju begin.

As Dana and Clifton begin to settle into a quiet and normal life together in Antigue after challenges regarding death of Dana's grandfather and settling of his estate, a call to Clifton from a stranger sets the couple off to search for the Brasher Doubloon, a gold coin, never recovered from the estate. Crossing country boundaries with people they don't know as friend or foe, they find themselves treasure hunting in Guatemala jungles following clues but not knowing what the next days will bring. Sikes has written a winner depicting life in an exotic atmosphere as romance merges with hope of valuable finds.
