In 1960s Florida, a young Cuban exile will risk her life—and heart—to take back her country in this exhilarating historical novel from the author of Next Year in Havana, a Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick.Beautiful. Daring. Deadly. The Cuban Revolution took everything from sugar heiress Beatriz Perez—her family, her people, her country. Recruited by the CIA to infiltrate Fidel Castro's inner circle and pulled into the dangerous world of espionage, Beatriz is consumed by her quest for revenge and her desire to reclaim the life she lost. As the Cold War swells like a hurricane over the shores of the Florida Strait, Beatriz is caught between the clash of Cuban American politics and the perils of a forbidden affair with a powerful man driven by ambitions of his own. When the ever-changing tides of history threaten everything she has fought for, she must make a choice between her past and future—but the wrong move could cost Beatriz everything—not just the island she loves, but also the man who has stolen her heart...

Part spy, romance and political thriller, this was a slow burn in all the right ways.

Very disappointed in this book after reading "Next Year in Havana". The book is 344 pages and could have been 149 if the author had not repeated the basic storyline 50 times. I think she succeeded with the Havana book and had a few ideas that she tried to stretch out into another book when it could have been a short story. There was some history from the 60's that was good filler, more interesting than the storyline.

This is story of Beatriz, who was introduced in "Next Year in Havana". It's a beautiful story of love, loss and yearning for one's home country. Beatriz is a strong woman, determined to avenge her brother's murder. Still rich in period details, but less historic narrative than the first novel, which I appreciated. Great read!

Set in the 1960s during the Cuban Revolution, this book is everything I love about historical fiction from this period. Political intrigue, espionage, a super smart heroine and a saucy romance.
