The Crocodile's Last Embrace by Suzanne Arruda
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Returning from Europe, intrepid explorer Jade del Cameron arrives in Kenya with bittersweet memories-and the certainty that Africa is her home and Sam Featherstone the man she wants to share her life with. When a letter arrives from America, Jade hopes it's Sam sending word of his return. Instead, it's a message written in the hand of her long- dead fiancé, asking "Why did you let me die?"
When two men die under mysterious circumstances and Jade discovers that her old nemesis, Lilith Worthy, has escaped from prison, the deaths and the letter form the most dangerous case Jade has ever faced, pitting her against a ferocious crocodile-and an even more deadly human killer.
This book took me back to what I loved about the first few books in this series. It centered on the mystery and less on the descriptions of the flora and fauna of Africa. The final showdown between Jade and Lilith as well as decisions about her relationships with Sam and Harry are all neatly wrapped up in this book.
From what I can gather from the author's website this book was not intended to be the final book of the series, but it did end in a good way if it does end up being the final one. I would gladly pick up more if the author finds a new publisher for this series in the future.
