A MIRACLE IN PARADISE Something funny is going on among the Order of the Illumination of the Sacred Virgin. The order, transplanted from Yugoslavia to Miami, has already reported two miraculous healings, and now they've announced a third that hasn't even happened yet. On the morning of October 3, according to their toll-free hot line (1-800-MIRACLE, or 1-800-MILAGRO for Spanish speakers), the statue of the Virgen de la Caridad will weep real tears in her shrine at Coconut Grove. The Mother Superior of the neighboring Order of the Holy Rosary, not one to take this sort of thing lying down, asks Sister Lourdes Solano to bring her sister Lupe Solano onto the case, remaining careful to build a firewall of deniability between herself and her shamus, and Lupe's most intriguing case is off with a bang.

Praise for A MIRACLE IN PARADISE

 
"Wry... witty... immediately engaging... a fascinating hero... Lupe Solano, a Cuban-American-princess-turned-investigator... keeps up with the likes of V.I. Washawski or Kay Scarpetta."
--- Miami Herald
 
"P.I. Lupe Solano... is bright, spunky, and independent to a fault... The author knows her way around Miamižs Little Havana and develops intriguing scenarios that fully exploit the fears, dreams, and eccentricities of its people."
--- Chicago Tribune
