exciting police procedural romance
Houston police detective Crista Santiago has recently been promoted to the Chicano Squad, which means working cases in her old barrio, something she dreads as her childhood was abusive and her teen marriage no better. Divorced Crista, a cop for six years, plans to reassign at the first opportunity although her five true blue sisterhood friends encourage her to be the best.--- Her current case involves the drive by shooting of a four year old girl Sam in her home. Crista¿s superiors, her partner, and Sam¿s father widower Alex Del Rio think the incident is gang related. Crista thinks otherwise as she feels the shooting was a warning to Alex to back off from his neighborhood activism. As Crista digs deeper looking at the gangs, her brother an ex-con connected to the gangs, and other possibilities, she falls in love with the father-daughter Del Rio team though Alex is an old fashioned Latino while Crista is modern day independent Americano; the Del Rios reciprocate those feelings.--- This exciting police procedural romance is the latest in the six female-cops ¿Women in Blue¿ sisterhood tales. Though Sam and Alex are nice caring people, the story line belongs to Crista being pulled in various directions, but knowing what she wants is to be a cop and to keep her beloved Del Rios safe. Mini-series fans will appreciate this fabulous contemporary that looks deep into the mean streets of Houston from the perspective of compassionate individuals fighting an uphill battle while finding love.--- Harriet Klausner
