The new book will be on the shelves this month and my next few blogs are all about introducing the characters, giving you a taste of what to expect. But first, because this book is in the Escape Around the World mini series - "Dream destinations - whirlwind weddings!", I wanted to show you where I'm taking you.

Botswana is an incredible country, rich in wildlife with a vast desert and the amazing Okavango delta which fills up with the run off from the mountains in the Congo and provides the most amazing wetland habitat. Something that Gideon McGrath is keen to share with Josie.

Leopard Tree Lodge is set on the banks of the Chobe River and, since it isn't one of those vast tourist camps, when the hottest celebrity wedding of the year rolls up they need some extra accommodation.

This is the riverboat where some of the guests will be staying. The pre-wedding dinner takes place on the top deck.

The accommodation is pretty special. There's nothing basic about the individual lodges are strung out through the tree tops. The plumbing is first class and in addition the guests have an outdoor shower as well as a plunge pool.

The interiors of the lodges are equally well-equipped.

Just perfect for a special honeymoon with the man of your dreams.

Or not...

Wow, wow, wow. So gorgeous!

Thanks, Marilyn, I was hoping that they'd help bring the book to life.

Unless you've been to one of these fabulous game lodges it's hard to imagine how luxurious they can be.

Hi Lacey. I want to be there. Now!

You make me want to travel to some places that weren't even on my radar before I started reading your books! BTW, Leopard Tree Lodge came in the mail yesterday! So many good books to read, so little time to do it in!

I finished reading Mother Without a Mask a couple of weeks ago. Would you like my copy to have on hand as an extra to loan out? (Did Kate ever get your copy back to you?) I picked my copy up used and it shows, but not falling apart yet. Very good read! Thank you for mentioning it!
