Hot & Bothered in Cancun by Beverly J. Ray is a breezy read that combines travel, adventure, and one woman’s search for herself into a hilarious ride. Meet Bria, a woman who has known nothing beyond her native city, but who quickly gets seduced by the idea of traveling somewhere, thanks to a friend’s encouragement. So, she books a flight and reserves a hotel in Cancun, Mexico. Follow her odyssey as it takes her into the heart of the Mexican people; watch her experience the thrills of immersing herself in a new culture, the joy of hospitality, the excitement of discovery, and as she drinks from the cup of new friendships. Here is a story that allows readers to discover one of the great travel destinations in the world and the fun stuff they can do there.
This book is slim and a very quick read, but it’s a gem for fans of travel stories, a book for readers who want to do something new, something different. Bria’s travel experience doesn’t just take her to new places, but it allows her to discover other layers of her personality and I enjoyed how the author allows this aspect of the narrative to come out. I couldn’t help but think that traveling is a gift that brings us into contact with other people, into encounters that allow us to see ourselves even more clearly. The writing is friendly and confident and the reader is enthralled by the excitement and the exuberance of the protagonist. Hot & Bothered in Cancun is both informative and entertaining, and Beverly J. Ray does an awesome job in keeping the reader engaged from the first to the very last page.
