Dear Mexico, I Love You (c) Marika Reinke 2023

Two travelers.
A once-in-a-lifetime trip.
As many chances as it takes to get it right …

River secretly hates Mexico. Before he returns to London, he hopes his last backpacking stop on his year-long world tour will be an exciting and exotic highpoint, but it has only been a series of missed opportunities and disappointments.   

On her mission to reclaim discarded dreams after unpredictable loss, Sedona left her job and sold everything in Portland, Oregon to travel solo. Her first stop is Mexico.  Surrounded by its vibrant culture and inspiring beauty, she falls in love with the country and begins to find herself again.

Chance after chance, River and Sedona keep meeting and can’t deny their irresistible magnetism. When they surrender to their attraction, fate leads them into an unforgettably sexy, adventurous, passionate affair across Mexico and Guatemala that teaches them a new meaning of love and healing. After only two weeks together, they know their worlds will never be the same, but their time together is limited. When River returns to London, they believe they will never see each other again.

But fate has other plans.
