* I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
Carlos is young and single. He spends at least one night a week having family dinner at his parent’s house. He also has a sister who he loves very much.
All that paints a picture of a happy family, however despite their closeness there is a dark cloud that hangs over the family. Carlos’ sister, Josephine is dying from terminal cancer. They know there is nothing that can be done to save her life, but they are thankful for every moment they have with her.
When Carlos meets a beautiful young woman from Bolivia, he is captivated. They have several encounters and Carlos is in love.
Then she disappears. Carlos is determined to find her and travels all the way to her hometown deep in the jungles of Bolivia.
What he finds there is shocking and will change not only his life, but the lives of others as well.
I was not sure what to expect from this audiobook, but once I started listening I did not want to stop.
This is both a drama and a paranormal romance audiobook.
The narrator had quite a challenge to overcome with the many hard to pronounce place names in Bolivia, but he pulls the pronunciation off seamlessly. The only time I didn’t like the narration was near the end of the audiobook when he does a high pitched female voice that just sounds silly. However, it was only one sentence so it did not have any impact on my overall enjoyment of this audiobook.
I really liked the fact that I was surprised multiple times while listening to GIRL OF THE CLOUD FOREST. There are many twists and turns to this story.
There are some questions that arise in this book that would be interesting to discuss with other readers/listeners. It would make an interesting Book Club pick.
I rate this book as 4 out of 5 stars. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
