When We Left Cuba

Did you read Chanel Cleeton’s enchanting Next Year in Havanna? (If not, go do it, I’ll wait.) Now you know how much you need to read her next! When We Left Cuba features a beautiful woman who is far more than her perfect features, a doomed romance (my favorite), and a soupcon of international intrigue. Oh, and did I mention heartbreak?

Here’s some more about the book:

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...

Chanel and I will be doing an interview with Washington Independent Review of Books, so keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, here’s some more about Chanel:
