I am excited to be on the amazing book blog tour for When We Left Cuba by the very talented Author Chanel Cleeton. I have a special giveaway for you today too!
In 1960s Florida, a young Cuban exile will risk her life–and heart–to take back her country in this exhilarating historical novel from the author of Next Year in Havana, a Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick.
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…
Miss W Book REVIEW:
|Review||5 Amazing Stars! When We Left Cuba is a fantastic Historical Fiction Novel that explores the very turbulent, uneasy time period of history in the 1960’s .
This novel has intrigue, politics, scandals, romance, and espionage with elements of a political thriller.
This novel is beautifully written with rich, multi-dimensional characters that create a complex story.
When we Left Cuba is a follow up to the equally fantastic Next Year in Havana but stands as a stand alone novel. If I were you, I would read BOTH!
I highly recommend this book and hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
