    Cuba Undercover

    Between the pages of Cuba Undercover by Linda Bond was a great place to be! Having been to Cuba a few times, I was excited to read a book in which a lot of the setting was in Cuba. Through Linda's vivid and accurate descriptions, I could not only see the place and people she detailed in my mind, but I could feel the humidity and the heat. I really liked the overall plot and theme of Cuba Undercover...especially since Linda manages to draw attention to a lot of ongoing political and humanitarian issues that are real. By doing this she made her characters and their situations believable. The way Rebecca and Antonio get to the situation they find themselves in, with her being kidnapped, was an interesting initial twist to the plot, but I felt that this not really necessary to move the plot forward, instead it was somewhat distracting. The way they quickly moved past the kidnapping and worked together to reach goals was admirable. Antonio and Rebecca develop a connection quickly, even as danger pursues them. Antonio is determined to save his sister, and Rebecca is determined not only to tell the story of her and other's like her, but to find out more about the father she's never known. This makes Rebecca and Antonio two people who are not welcome in Cuba...and even as the goal is reached the cost to them both might be heavy. When all is said and done, can Rebecca forget Antonio and move on? Cuba Undercover really makes one think about the issues that country and it's people are facing. I know that this is a fiction book, but Linda has written it so well it could be real. I loved the main characters and the secondary characters (especially Rebecca's cameraman Dallas). I liked what Rebecca and Antonio stood for, what they believed in and stood up for. I could feel the hope that each of them felt as well as their fear. Cuba Undercover was so easy to immerse myself in...with a nerve wracking and dangerous at times plot with just enough romance the plot is strong and the characters are powerful. I'd recommend Cuba Undercover to any romance reader.

    Excellent

    A fast paced romantic suspense that takes us to Cuba and back! The story was exciting, fast paced, and very well written. While all the events weren't completely factual, they weren't so for off the mark you can't accept them as artistic license. Being a native Floridian, I have been exposed to the Cuban culture my whole life and the depiction of their love of family and hatred of Castro was right on the mark. Whether you know a little or a lot about the culture, this story gets top marks for suspense and excitement. I highly recommend it.

    Mission accomplished, Ms. Bond!

    Life was going well for reporter Rebecca Menendez, she was even eyeing a promotion into Special Investigation. One evening while on her way to a fundraising, she and her cameraman Dallas Jones are summoned to climb in a van by armed men. One of these men is Antonio Vega, who says he needs Rebecca’s help. He’s going to Cuba to rescue his sister and he knows Rebecca can help him document his sister’s rescue. Rebecca, who is Cuban-American, wants nothing to do with Cuba because she was told her father had been murdered by the Cuban government. Rebecca is livid about being kidnapped, but what Antonio tells her about her father makes her review her position: she’ll help Antonio. Although I am not a fan of kidnapping tropes, I had loved Alive at 5, Ms. Bond’s first book, and I had to read CUBA UNDERCOVER: I was not disappointed. CUBA UNDERCOVER is richly detailed, whether it concerns Cuba or the life of a reporter. Both Rebecca and Antonio are complex and appealing characters, and the progression of their relationship is believable throughout the story. CUBA UNDERCOVER is very fast-paced, action-packed, there are plot twists that will make your head spin – in a good way! The story is solid and pretty fascinating in view of the political angle. The writing is impeccable, smooth and fluid, the descriptions cinematic and vivid, and the romance is steamy. Linda Bond made sure I remained a fan! Very well done indeed! I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
