Amazon Summary:Battling giant snakes, poison pits and hostile headhunters after a plane crash in the Amazon, movie star Jack Hunter reveals himself to be something altogether different from the macho adventurer he plays in Hollywood. Luckily for him, he's marooned with movie-industry animal trainer Maxine Daniels and her two kids. The lovely "Max" has more than enough high-spirited courage and fiery determination to get them all home. But when terrifying natives capture the feisty heroine, fate calls on the handsome actor to become the hero he always pretended to be in pictures. With such daring demands on the two-fisted matinee hero, will Jack embark on a journey to win the heart of the woman he loves-or perish in the darkest jungles of the Amazon?
Review:This book was such a fun read, and reminded me of Indiana Jones and Tales of the Gold Monkey both which I loved so much. To be honest that is my secret love, that I don't either read too much about or watch as often as I would like. I love old Hollywood - action adventure type books as well as shows.
I couldn't help but smile as I read this short but fun ride, action galore coated the pages as well as funny moments with a nice romantic kiss or two. So if you are looking for something different and quick to read , give this book a try.
