Beverly Hills Maasai was a fun and easy read but wasn’t as great as the previous Alexandria of Africa. You must read the previous novel to understand this book better as it shows how rich and snobby Alexandria returns home and a Maasai comes to live with her. The book shows how Alexandria becomes a better and more mature individual after her adventure in Africa and how she changes her attitude towards others. This book needed something else, not sure what that is, but it was lacking something the first book had. Overall, it was a great novel to end off the series and I’m hoping to see more books like these in the Eric Walters collection. 4/5 stars

I found Alexandria of Africa (the prequel to this book) much better than this one. It was just a little too weird and unrealistic for me, pretty much the opposite of Alexandria of Africa. I found the ending easy to expect.

I accidentally read this before the first book, and i could follow the plot perfectly. A really good read for almost everyone.

This is a good book but read the first book before this one. The first book is called Alexandria of Africa. This book was well written, funny and informative.

Good book, what a great ending to the 2-book series. I just thought that the book took too long to progress.
