“Garcia-Aguilera perfectly captures the conflicts of these cosseted Cuban-American women. Her tongue-in-cheek humor enlivens the situations she describes with intimate familiarity [in] this zesty tale [...] Aguilera’s Miami sleuth, Lupe Solano (HAVANA HEAT and BITTER SUGAR), has won her the Flamingo and Shamus Awards. By sticking to a world she knows well, the author has produced another crowd pleaser.”
"Tropical politics, culture and identity [...] are at the center of ONE HOT SUMMER [...] Garcia Aguilera creates human characters we can empathize with."
Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel
“This frisky Cuban-flavored story about a married woman who has an affair with her former law school boyfriend goes beyond the classic story of adultery […] [Carolina Garcia-Aguilera’s] experience as the writer of the successful Miami-based Lupe Solano detective novels has give her an edge when it comes to writing a gripping story.”
