What do three genius twenty-one year old women do to show their newly found adulthood?  They decide to escape their overprotected parents and take a spur of the moment camping trip.  The three have been lifelong friends and seem to get into the most trouble when they are off on an adventure together.  This instance is no different.  While early on the girls figure out they are not meant to be outdoorswomen the wine helps take the edge off.  When they start talking about their lack of knowledge of the male species each clearly desires to change their virgin status.

Sam has just gotten out of the Navy and is on a solo camping trip to get his brain around his new freedom and decide what to do next in life.  He never expects to be the brunt of a project in this middle of the wilderness.

Suddenly the three friends realize that there is someone camping nearby on a bluff and decide to launch “project Amazon” by kidnapping Sam.  They are going to keep him captive and learn about the opposite sex.  When Sam realizes what they have cooked up will he be a willing participant or try to escape?

Suddenly the three must face the tragedy of a flash flood as well as one of them having more than one night stand feelings for Sam.  Will they survive and will Sam reciprocate the feelings?

The Amazon Project was a fanciful and fun filled story with just the right amount of suspense.  I was unable to put it down once I started it.  I thought the three women were fun spirits together, though serious in their own rite. Although, I have to say I don’t see three “divas” having this kind of courage in real life, I loved it as an escape for an evening.  I look forward to reading more of Ms. Minter’s writings and think you should give The Amazon Project a try.
