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.
[Rating/review based on genre]
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 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.
Widow's Tale Borrowed Time Jungle Of Deceit
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.
Dr. Alex is the type of woman we would hope to be in a dangerous situation. Photojournalist Mitch is the man we would want by our side in any situation. Sent to join Alex's team as a photographer, Mitch is undercover to find museum artifacts that he witnessed being stolen. But, on an archeological dig deep in a jungle Alex should be careful who she trusts. Old friends and new enemies mix to create a suspenseful twist and turn story that leads to a surprise ending.
Descriptive scenes, realistic (yet, secondary) romance, betrayal and surprising revelations have me giving Jungle of Deceit five stars.

Though it was short, the length didn't inspire the lackluster review. The narrative was choppy, switching between characters with no warning, leaving the reader confused. Read morePublished on August 18, 2012 by Zifos K.
