More hunter than botanist, Dr. Jessie Robards had dedicated her life to tracking down the world's rarest flowers. But finding the Death Orchid was different. The legendary medicinal flower could save her dying uncle—if she could keep the precious bloom out of her greedy competitors' hands. But she'd need more than her scientific mind and strong legs to survive the perils of the Amazon. This time the independent adventurer would need the courage to trust a man she barely knew on a journey into the heart of darkness....

My rating:

This could’ve been great if it wasn’t for the heroine going all James-Bond/Indiana-Jones on the reader in the first few chapters. For a botanist that was quite a change of pace.

The rest of the story pretty much went blah from there and stayed blah until the end. I felt absolutely no connection. Disappointing.
