through the lives of four people living on both sides of the border.
Texan-turned-New Yorker Sarita Salt is trying to mend a broken heart. But when her best friend sets her up on an innocent blind date, Sarita is catapulted into a glittering world of private jets, body guards, and guns. Lots of guns.
Suddenly people are trying to kill her. She has no idea why.
From her secure life in upscale Greenwich Village through the undulating beauty of the Texas Hill Country, a lush colonial Mexico few ever see, old money Parisian palaces, and the Bordeaux wine country, Sarita struggles to find the “right” inner voice to trust. But it’s hard to hear in the middle of gunfire. And harder still to trust when you don’t know who is trying to kill you.
Is the man she has fallen for so quickly the reason she's a target? Or is he the reason she's still alive?
Smoldering suspicion burns . . . because history has a long wick.
This romantic thriller is timely, thought-provoking, funny, scary, sexy, sprinkled with salt, and liberally doused in jalapeño juice. HOT AGUA may well be the best international mystery you read this year.
