    One thought on “A Miracle in Paradise”

    1. This fourth book of the series. Lupe Solano is a Catholic girl from a wealthy Cuban-American family and works a private investigator in Miami. This book is based in Miami and involves extreme ties to Catholicism and Cuban politics.It is difficult to identify with the story line if you don't share the same heritage. Lupe is portrayed as a strong and independent woman who is not easily intimidated; yet she allows herself to be manipulated and taken advantage of in certain situations. Although Lupe [...]

    2. Let me be clear: this was NOT a good book. Even for the crappy paperback crime genre. But there just aren't enough smart, single, wiseass Cuban-American gals solving mysteries these days, so I'm giving it a pass.

    3. This is the second Lupe Solano mystery I have read. I found it to be a bit heavy on the Catholicism theme (perhaps because I am not Catholic myself). Set in Miami, it interweaves Cuban politics with the Catholic Church. Not my cup of tea, but the mystery plot was okay.

    4. Found this author when searching for a new mystery writer of color. Glad to know about her, I like the protagonist in this series, and appreciate the Cuban political and cultural context. Ordering the older books in the series and will probably move on to her later books and short stories.

    5. Formulaic albeit entertaining. And, please, proofreaders: A short scholarly treatise is called a monograph, not a monogram.
