“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.

What can I say about this author? There are authors that tell a story and then there are authors that make you feel the story in every morsel of your soul. This author belongs to the second category.
With this book she did something magical. She took reality and blended it beautifully with fiction. She took real, devastating events and turned them into a beautiful love story. The thing with Leylah Attar is that her books are never just about romance. They are about life, about people, about destiny.
This book takes us on a magical journey through the wilderness of Africa. It’s about a tragic event that will link two people together.
Rodel never expected to exchange her life in England for the sweltering heat of the Serengeti. But life is strange and that is where Rodel finds herself heading to.
The connecting link? Her sister. There, she will meet a wounded king that will give meaning to her life.
She will find herself in a dangerous mission that only Jack Warden can help her see through.
Jack is lost, he is grieving and he is not looking for responsibilities. But when Rodel enters his life like a storm, he will reluctantly join her in her quest to fulfill her sister’s goal. Thrown together, they will slowly discover each other, they will see each other for who they really are and ultimately, they will heal each other.
Once in Africa, I kissed a King…
The journey is long and painful, their romance a slow burn, but it is one of the best books I’ve had the pleasure of reading.
I inhaled every word, I laughed, I cried and I discovered a land that is obscure to most people not living in Africa.
Excellent writing and storyline. Complex characters that I immediately connected to and a love story that will make your heart pound!
I recommend it!
