Product Description

Product Description

Shy and geeky Rhys White, has recently been ditched by his boyfriend of five years. On top of that he’s been made redundant from his job as a computer programmer.

Tired of being boring and unadventurous, he throws caution to the winds and buys a plane ticket to Peru.

Rhys’ adventure in Peru starts out well, but then disaster strikes. All of his belongings are stolen. Everything is gone—passport, wallet, phone, clothing, the lot.

Stranded in Cuzco, not too far from the famous Machu Picchu, Rhys tries to find someone to help him. He's about to give up, when a sexy Brazilian named Rafael, comes to his rescue…

5 Hearts reviewed by York

When it comes right down to it, most of us aren’t what is generally thought of as real risk takers. I am pretty sure I would not have taken the kind of adventurous risk that Rhys takes in In Darkest Peru. I think I’d be too concerned with the possibility of exactly what happened to Rhys happening.

He’s faced with his life turning upside down and decides to shake things up by going to Peru. After a couple of days of smooth going, everything is turned upside down when he loses everything in a holdup. After that and what caused him to go to Peru in the first place, why should he take the kindness from a stranger, Rafael, at face value? I don’t think I could have but Rhys does.

The character development and the setting created by Louise Lyons is spectacular, not always an easy thing to accomplish in a short story or novella. But this had me hooked from the beginning. When faced with so few pages, you don’t expect to find this kind of imagery or for the characters to burrow their way into your heart and yet that’s exactly what you do have with Peru. I can’t say as I’ve ever really had any interest in the kind of trip that Rhys takes but I felt as if I was there right beside him the whole time. I already had Miss Lyons on my radar but if I hadn’t, Peru would have definitely put her there.
