Burning Embers takes place in Africa in the 1970’s.  The story starts out with Coral, mid-twenties, at sea on her way to Africa.  She is escaping an engagement gone bad, and visiting her family home where she grew up.  Coral meets a mysterious French man on ship, and then keeps running into him.  His name is Rafe, and she is warned by many that he is a playboy; a womanizer.  The warnings aren’t enough to keep Coral away, however, but should she have listened?

Coral wasn’t my favorite.  I just didn’t connect with her.  Some of her reactions just didn’t seem right.  For instance, she ran into her ex-fiancé after a few months and she didn’t feel any emotion.  That just doesn’t make sense.  I understand that he wasn’t the right guy for her, she probably didn’t’ love him like she thought she did, but I still felt like she should have felt something, you know?

The story was told from Coral’s point of view, but one or two times it was told from Rafe’s.  I felt like it wasn’t really necessary and kind of ruined the flow, especially since it was only his point of view one or two times.

Overall though, it was a good book.  I read it in a few days, and for the most part it kept me interested.  That’s why I am giving it 3 out of 5 stars.


My Rating:  3 out of 5 stars
