"Varela's writing is full of heart, tenderness, and deep empathy. The mystery and suspense had me tearing through the pages. The setting was Red Hook, Brooklyn and I loved the authentic Nuyorican feel. If you enjoy stories with strong, resilient characters that resemble ordinary people and cozy mysteries that keep you guessing, then give the Daisy Muñiz series a try."
