    1. n this first mystery of the series, the Morenos, a Cuban couple, have asked Lupe Solano to find the birth mother of their adopted daughter who needs a bone marrow transplant - and time is running out quickly. I don't want to give anything away, except to say it is quite an adventure including a sail to Cuba.Ms. Garcia-Aguilera is herself a P.I. in Miami which is the key to this book. But it is not just technical details that makes it a good mystery - it's the personality and the philosophy of th [...]

    2. I like this book, but it took me a long time to get through it. Reasons: #1 - I do most of my "reading" on audiobooks. Love audiobooks! #2 - I'm a slow reader, always have been. Took the speed reading workshops, always got lost within the first half hour. Just don't have the fast reading genes. #3 - If I do settle down to actually read an actual book, it's late, late at night and after I've read my scriptures, so the attention span may succumb to sleepiness. Nevertheless, I likke this one! It's [...]

    3. In the first book of this series, you meet Lupe Solano. She is a Catholic girl and the daughter of a prominent Cuban residing in Miami. This book introduces one of Lupe's sisters, who is a Catholic nun. Her family was shocked at her choice of professions when she decides to become a private investigator. She has a passion for the work and applies herself fully to her case, to the point of risking her own life. In this case is another Cuban couple desperately seeking the birth mother of their ado [...]

    4. I'll read at least one more in the series. Garcia-Aguilera's writing way above what one would expect from a first-time author. Enjoyable mostly for observations of Cuban life in Miami (in 1996 - be interesting to read a new installment with a more mature protagonist as the thaw arrives).

    5. More like 4.5, but I rounded down.What a great story. It kept me on the edge of my seat reading this. I liked the fact that the case was not about a murder. A lot of detective novels I read are about murders so this was refreshing. I can't wait to read more from Garcia-Aguilera!

    6. The upper class Cuban-American Miami setting and characters are very well drawn and interesting.Unfortunately, this book is way too violent for me. The author depends too much on violence and danger.

    7. If you're a fan of Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone (A is for Alibi et al you would likely enjoy this series that places Lupe, the investigator, in Miami.

    8. Summer mystery candy. Heard the author on NPR, sounded interesting, decided to give her books a read. I love the main character Lupe Solano and the spicy goodness of the books being set in the Cubano world of Miami. These are great books!!! Too bad our library does not have all the copies!

    9. This series is really worth searching out. Ms. Garcia-Aguilera is a wonderful writer with a talent for setting and character development. I enjoyed all of the Lupe Solano books and wish there were more!

    10. Friend from work said that if I liked the Stephanie Plum series, I would like this series, so I gave it a try. Not a funny series but decent mystery about a cuban-american PI set around Miami. Book 1 in the series and the first I've read.

    11. This is the first i've read of Ms. Garcia-Aguilera.but, it won't be the last. The vivid descriptions of the charecters and the community are spectacular! Her knowledge of Cuba and the Miami 'Cuba' are what makes her words come to life.I will continue to read her worki love it!!

    12. An interesting looking into Cuban-American's nostalgia and affection for Cuba even though they only know it from the memories of their parents. A nice mystery and and interesting protagonist.

    13. Read it a long time ago but remember really enjoying this entertaining mystery. Solid 3.5 stars rounded to 4.
