Terrific PW Review for Debut Author Misa Ramirez
I’m thrilled to share this great review from Publisher’s Weekly for Misa Ramirez‘s debut mystery, Living the Vida Lola, coming in January from St. Martin’s Minotaur:
Ramirez’s muy caliente debut introduces Dolores “Lola” Falcón Cruz, a Sacramento, Calif., PI whose kung fu moves are only part of her chica charm. A missing persons case—the disappearance of 42-year-old Emily Diggs, who left her six-year-old son, Sean, stranded at school—turns into a murder investigation after a boater finds Emily’s body near Riverbank Marina. Lola’s old high school crush, Jack Callaghan, now a Sacramento Bee reporter, provides some unexpected help. Emily had approached Jack about her 18-year-old son Garrett’s recent death—from what Emily believed was a “heart infection” due to a faulty tattoo. Lola’s determined to uncover the facts and catch the killer, even if it means, gulp, getting a girly belly-button piercing. Ramirez keeps the action tight, the plot smart and humor light in this spicy blend of crime solving and romance. Lola’s latina perspective adds extra sizzle. (Jan.)
It’s a great Agent Moment when you get to see others falling for characters the way you did, which is why I can’t wait for January, when even more readers will meet the whole Cruz family. You can arrange to do just that here, here, here and/or here.
