This is a good, well written story. There is some mystery and romance, but the story is more about building relationships and caring for others. The story includes elderly characters and people from other countries what are adapting to American life. The story is so well written you can almost see the mist and smell the tacos. If you like easy, uncomplicated stories, you will love this book.
I was given a copy of this book from Revell Publishing for an honest review.
