5 Star Review- Missionary Position by Daisy Prescott

Missionary Position was a book I could not put down. I was torn between wanting it to be over so I could know how it ended and dreading for it to be over because I was enjoying it so much.
We met Selah in Geoducks are for Lovers, and she’s mentioned in Ready to Fall. And I must say the leading men in this book give John Day (main man in Ready to Fall) a run for his money. Selah is a free spirit who does what and whom she please and makes no apologies for it. I love this about her. She’s strong, intelligent, and independent. 

Selah is a professor on the west coast and she is traveling for work. First a stop in Amsterdam then on to Ghana for several months. While eating airport sushi she meets a fellow traveler, Anita, who mentions Selah should meet her brother, Gerhard. This is a new set-up for Selah, but she figures why not.
After arriving abroad Selah travels the city, and bumps into a handsome man at a cocktail party she attends. She has to leave before finding out his name because she’s meeting the mysterious Gerhard. Once she arrives she finds out that her blind date is none other than the hottie from the cocktail party. Selah knows her time in Amsterdam is brief, but she’s intrigued. While this isn’t how she normally operates, there is something about him. They part ways, and plan to keep in touch.

Selah departs for Ghana, and meets some wonderful people. Kofi a driver, Ama who runs the hotel Selah stays at (and later rents a room from), and various other occupants from the hotel. You can feel the camaraderie amongst them from the off. Selah is still thinking of Gerhard while working, and the two exchange texts. Eventually Ama tries to set Selah up with Kai, a former guest of hers. Kai wasn’t originally scheduled to visit, but surprises Ama and is also a surprise to Selah. He is rugged and fun, and a great match for Selah. They share much over their time in Ghana. Selah sees and experiences much on her journey. Her heart is torn as to what Selah really wants and what she’s always believed her life would be.
Surprises abound in Africa. When Selah comes back home early, she has decisions of the heart to make.

I cannot stress enough how much I loved this book. (You don’t really need to read the first two books, but I would recommend them as well.) Selah is such a strong, wonderful woman. The supporting characters are warm and inviting. Gerhard and Kai are being added to my favorite fictional boyfriends list! Swoon! 

Was gifted a copy by the author for an honest review, but I loved it so much I purchased my own copy.
