    Dr. Annie Parrish of the River Basin Coalition hurriedly needs to leave Manaus, Brazil, but her transportation has broken down. Desperate to get out of town before Vargas, who once imprisoned and tortured her, learns she is there, she searches all the dives until she finds Harvard trained ethnobotanist Will Sanchez Travers sexily dancing with a local. She asks Will if she can join his ship heading to Santa Maria in the morning. Will, who has given up academia to go native, agrees for a fee.

    Will takes Annie up river though he knows she is hiding her real reason for the hasty ride, but does not really care as long as her endeavor does not jeopardize his work. However, three days along the RIVER OF EDEN leads to an attraction and then love between the field scientists, but also danger from Vargas who has plans that will destroy the Norte Americano outsiders and many other innocents.

    In a positive way, RIVER OF EDEN will remind readers of the Amazon Queen not just because of its locale, but also because its a strong adventure tale with two wonderful superstars. The story line is fast-paced and loaded with action from the first step Annie takes onto the Manaus dive. The tale never lets up as Glenna McReynolds provides quite a reading experience for fans of a romantic adventure thriller.
