The heroine(s): Presley – she is an art historian working for an auction house with her old boyfriend Hunter to catalog the contents of the mansion of the Valentina family whose patriarch was an early explorer who traveled to the Amazon in the early 1900’s and is rumored to have found a lost city filled with riches.
The Hero(s): Hunter – he is an adrenaline junkie and extreme sports enthusiast who is famous for hosting an adventure series on television and writing best selling books on his travels around the world. He is working with Presley and the Valentina project and filming for his show in hopes that the rumors are true and they uncover some sort of map to the lost city.
The Story: Hunter and Presley find a letter hidden in the mansion which leads them to another letter and another and they end up going on a treasure hunt. They don’t know if the letters, hidden away for so many years, and the hunt are the treasure or if they are leading to the lost city and actual treasure.
Presley is still attracted to Hunter (and vice versa), though she is trying to move her career to the next level and is determined to keep things just business between them. However, as they follow the trail where the letters lead them, along the way they start to find answers to parts of each of their lives which were missing.
The narration, like part one, was done by Scott Eastwood and Andi Arndt. This book was primarily made for audio and I see quite a few reviews that pan Scott Eastwood performance especially for his cadence, which I will agree, could be improved upon. Though this seems to be his only foray into book narration and I would expect that is something that comes with a bit of experience.
I have to say that I like his voice and his cadence really didn’t bother me at all. Scott’s cadence in this one is compared to Andi Arndt’s since they do alternating chapters, and when I searched for him in audible I came up with the three books in this series and her list had 480 books. So of course when comparing the two, there will be differences. Give him a break people.
