Bonus S: SEISMIC CRIMES
Today is the release of Chrys Fey's first novel!
An Internal Affairs Investigator was murdered and his brother, Donovan Goldwyn, was framed. Now Donovan is desperate to prove his innocence. And the one person who can do that is the woman who saved him from a deadly hurricane—Beth Kennedy. From the moment their fates intertwined, passion consumed him. He wants her in his arms. More, he wants her by his side in his darkest moments.
Beth Kennedy may not know everything about Donovan, but she can’t deny what she feels for him. It’s her love for him that pushes her to do whatever she has to do to help him get justice, including putting herself in a criminal’s crosshairs.
When a tip reveals the killer's location, they travel to California, but then an earthquake of catastrophic proportions separates them. As aftershocks roll the land, Beth and Donovan have to endure dangerous conditions while trying to find their way back to one another. Will they reunite and find the killer, or will they lose everything?
ALSO AVAILABLE IN PRINT!

Join in the FUN.
This year I traveled to Cuba. You know, it's that little island that's spitting distance from Florida and should not be visited without special dispensation. I wanted to see it before MacDonald's arrived. I'm so glad I did. I learned a lot and I met some wonderful people. It seems they like us. Now there's a change!
I'll add a short T/F quiz to each post the same as I did last year about Burma, and I'll post the answers to the questions the following day.
Answers to your T/F Quiz for R:
TRUE 1. The Bay of Pigs (Invasión de Playa Girón) was an attempt by the U.S. to overthrow the Castro government. Unfortunately, the Cuban refugees who were backed by the CIA were ill-prepared, and the landing was a fiasco.
FALSE 2. The Soviet Bloc didn't collapse in 1969; it collapsed in 1991.
S is for Squares:
The squares in Havana are absolutely beautiful and some date from the 1500s. The Plaza Vieja was laid out in 1559 A beautiful area to explore and enjoy architecture and interesting statues.
Plaza de la Catedral features the Categral de San Cristóbal and dates from the 18th century. The wide open, car-less area is wonderful to walk. Deep red Bouganvilla cling to the ancient stone walls and blue balconies and doorways blend with the color of the sky.

The Plaza de San Francisco faces the port of Havana. The old customs house and the former stock exchange front this elegant, but more commercial plaza. The Basilica Menor de San Francisco de Asis was built in 1580 and the bell tower rises 42 meters into the sky.
The Plaza de Armas is a place to stroll through palm-lined walkways and gaze at Baroque buildings. The Book Market is a favorite spot to find books and magazines that go back to the 40s and 50s.

Your T/F Quiz for S:
