Once in Africa, I kissed a king…
“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.

I don’t even know where to begin with this amazingly breath-taking story. The thing about Leylah Attar’s novels is that they are a cinematic journey that makes you feel every word written and pulls you into a whole other realm. You are literally transformed and become one with the stories she breathes and you come out of it feeling so much emotion it’s hard to put it all into words. And that is exactly what Mists of the Serengeti does for me. I have adored every book I’ve received from Leylah, but this one… this one will stay with me for a long, long time. Let me just say the Epilogue, gutted me and at the same time brought peace all at once. This book is truly an experience within itself.
Tragedy brings people together is different ways and this is no different for Jack and Rodel. Their story pulls at you. You feel all their pain. The words that flow from each page engulfs you. You learn just how much our lives intertwine with each other, without us ever knowing.
I’m not here to tell you the story. That is your own journey to take and it’s a journey that’s best left to your own interpretations. But for me, this book has made it into my ALL TIME FAVORITE LIST and I know for a fact will be on my TOP Reads for 2017 without even trying. This book is a masterpiece. An epic love story. Exquisite poetry. A truly stunning work of art.
Leylah tells stories like no other author I’ve read and she will always be a go to author for me. Don’t add this book to your TBR for later. This is a book to be read now – don’t put it off. Take the journey that will have you laughing, crying and feeling with every breath and every page you turn. Five stars aren’t even close to enough for this novel.
