Here is the summary from goodreads about the book, just in case you are interested in the book.
Thirty-something hairdresser Janie Johnson's single status is a constant source of gossip for her friends and clients. So after too many nights in with her cat, a blind date disaster, and news that her ex is getting married, Janie realizes it's time to do something dramatic with her life. It's time for an adventure! Leaving winter behind, Janie takes the plunge and books an exotic trip to Africa. Her friends think she's mad and Janie thinks they may very well be right, but then she falls head over heels for her tour guide—and fully fledged Maasai Warrior—Dominic. But can Janie now face spending a snowy Christmas back home without him?
Now onto my review:
Genre: Chick Lit
Is it is a part of series - no.
Review: I got this book from the library because I thought it was a christmas book, but there isn't really much christmas in the book, but once I started the first couple of chapters, I couldn't stop reading it. It was a great book. I really like the relationship between the main character and her boyfriend from Africa. There was also a surprise at the end that I didn't see coming. I will defintely look for more books by Carole Matthews.
