Doctor Alex Langley is a tough (on the outside) archaeologist, her estranged father the esteemed Doctor Franklin Langley. When it comes to men, she has serious trust issues. Enter Mitch Hasslet, a digs photographer foisted on her by the Museum of Art and Antiquities, who has his own agenda…

Adventure, romance, mystery, thrills, twists… Jungle of Deceit has them all. The sultry Guatemalan jungle complete with mosquitoes (made me itch) is more than simply a backdrop – it’s integral to the story and
Ms. Miller steps away from the chilling elements typically found in her stories and takes us into a sweltering ‘Jungle of Deceit’. For me the suspense pulled this story along; the mildly romantic subplot took a back seat to the mysteries that were filtered throughout this book.

A beautifully descriptive setting, typical of Ms. Miller, shows us a hidden compound deep within the jungle that provides little sense of comfort for her characters. The details of Mayan artifacts and those who search to

This was my third book from Maureen Miller! As with her other books I enjoy how she takes her hero and heroine on a journey together. They don't meet and instantly fall in love, but they get to know each other through crazy circumstances and that pushes them together. It seems more real and believable to me. Maureen has very descriptive writing that makes you feel as though you are in the story - you can feel the elements, the fear, and the love. I wasn't sure about this book at the beginning - ...more

I started reading 'Jungle of Deceit' on my Kindle while at the beach - the sun, sand, surf and a great read. So I can honestly recommend it as a beach read. Of course, I finished it up back at home in the wee hours. This is a fast-paced, entertaining, romantic suspense with lots of twists and turns.

Great adventure story. Loved the characters and the story line. Fun mystery adventure exciting romantic what else could you want.
I don't expect much from my romance novels. However, I left the story had great potential with an exciting setting and plot. I just could not get past the characters. I didn't find myself cheering for either of them and the dialog was awful.

USA TODAY bestselling author, Maureen A. Miller's first novel, WIDOW'S TALE earned her a Golden Heart nomination in Romantic Suspense.
