“And just like that, in an old red barn at the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, I discovered the elusive magic I had only ever glimpsed between the pages of great love stories. It fluttered around me like a newborn butterfly and settled in a corner of my heart. I held my breath, afraid to exhale for fear it would slip out, never to be found again.”
When a bomb explodes in a mall in East Africa, its aftershocks send two strangers on a collision course that neither one sees coming.
Jack Warden, a divorced coffee farmer in Tanzania, loses his only daughter. An ocean away, in the English countryside, Rodel Emerson loses her only sibling.
Two ordinary people, bound by a tragic afternoon, set out to achieve the extraordinary, as they make three stops to rescue three children across the vast plains of the Serengeti—children who are worth more dead than alive.
But even if they beat the odds, another challenge looms at the end of the line. Can they survive yet another loss—this time of a love that’s bound to slip through their fingers, like the mists that dissipate in the light of the sun?
“Sometimes you come across a rainbow story—one that spans your heart. You might not be able to grasp it or hold on to it, but you can never be sorry for the color and magic it brought.”
A blend of romance and women’s fiction, Mists of The Serengeti is inspired by true events and contains emotional triggers, including the death of a child. Not recommended for sensitive readers. Standalone, contemporary fiction.

5 + STARS
Layla Attar writes amazing books. Each one like a masterpiece, unveiling a true work of art in between its covers. Mists of the Serengeti is no exception. Beautiful, poignant, heartbreaking – it grabs a hold of you and makes you feel down to your soul.
The story of Jack and Rodel is one of loss and friendship. Yes, there is also a romance aspect but to me that takes a back seat to the fact that both are dealing with a tragedy. This tragedy is what unites them in the most unexpected of ways.
This will be a hard book to read for some. It does deal with the loss of a child and a relative. It also is a book of healing which many of us need to experience. I can not recommend Mists of the Serengeti enough not only for its elegant writing and stunning story but also for its message of hope. This is honestly one of the best books I have ever read.
Leylah Attar writes stories about love – shaken, stirred, and served with a twist.Sometimes she disappears into the black hole of the internet, but can usually be enticed out with chocolate. Leylah is a New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of contemporary romance/women’s fiction.
