Description

With this stunning novel Soledad Santiago captures the Latina heart of New York, giving readers a taste of family, culture, and sexual desire as told through the electrifying voice of Francesca Colon, thirty-eight years old, divorced, and a recently appointed spokesperson for the NYPD - a job that tests her values, her courage, and her ability to love.Being assigned to the public information office of the police department is tremendously exciting for Officer Francesca Colon. Even her first day makes headlines when she narrowly escapes an explosion in a coffee shop, and soon afterward a young Dominican man is shot, inciting pandemonium. Crises have a way of following her home, too: her teenage son is proving too street-smart for his years and for her peace of mind, and her young daughter already has a woman's body and man problems. Every man in Francesca's life would like to be the answer to her prayers, but despite pressures from her grandmother that she find a new man fast, she is taking her time.Francesca is firm about raising her kids with love but no lies. She is determined to be as good a cop as any man on the force - and a great deal straighter than most. And she is certain that the next man she lets into her life and takes into her bed will not be the latest in a long list of mistakes.show more
