Library Journal Review

Sara Conner's Prince Charming, Nicolas Cortez, rescues her from a mugging and proceeds to sweep her off her feet in a whirlwind courtship and marriage. Then he takes her with him to Bolivia, where he puts his business degree to use in the family business. Sara had no idea the Cortezes were filthy rich until they arrive at the family compound. And she has no idea exactly how filthy the Cortez money really is. Sara's na‹vete is stripped away as she realizes the family's connection to cocaine smuggling, and she learns that she is disposable if she gets too nosy. In her struggle to reconcile a loving husband with the horrors of his actions, she turns to God for spiritual answers and to a DEA agent to save her life. Despite the use of an unbelievably innocent protagonist, Windle captures the essence of Bolivian society, caught between "easy" money and the desperation of a poverty-stricken economy. Sally John's To Dream Again (reviewed on p. 106) offers a similar story with a more sympathetic heroine. For comprehensive collections only. (c) Copyright 2010.
