Description

Set in Havana during the Black Spring of 2003, a charming but poison-laced culinary mystery reveals the darker side of the modern Revolution, complete with authentic Cuban recipes Havana, Cuba, 2003: Matt, a San Diego journalist, arrives in Havana to marry his girlfriend, Yarmila, a 24-year-old Cuban woman whom he first met through her food blog. But Yarmi isn't there to meet him at the airport, and when he hitches a ride to her apartment, he finds her lying dead in the bathtub. Lovelorn Matt is immediately embroiled in a Cuban adventure he didn't bargain for: the police and secret service have him down as their main suspect, and in an effort to clear his name, he must embark on his own investigation into what happened to Yarmila. The more Matt learns about his erstwhile fiancee, though, the more he realizes he had no idea who she was at all-but did anyone?

Professional reviews

"Narrator Cynthia Farrell gives a strong portrayal of an American visiting Cuba during its Black Spring of 2003. When Matt arrives in Havana to marry his Cuban girlfriend, he discovers her murdered, a situation that leads to an investigation that uncovers her second life. Farrell effectively channels the many different people who recount their stories of Yarmila, giving them unique voices and accents that indicate their educational levels and classes. Farrell's own American accent highlights the level of skill she demonstrates as she voices both the old and young who talk about Yarmila. She also does an excellent job of adding liveliness to Yarmila's blog entries, interspersed throughout, which are full of her joyful approach to cooking, family, and life. This truly is an excellent performance. V.M.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
