Book Riot

Frank Delgadoís parents fled Cuba after the Revolution, so when Frank has to make an unexpected trip to his parentsí homeland, heís not really prepared. What brings him to Cuba? Oh, no biggie ó just stealing a recipe that is a closely guarded state secret so that he can bring it back to America to save his failing restaurant. But wait ó that legendary chicken recipe belonged to his family first. So itís not so much stealing as reclaiming. Still dangerous, though: Cuba isnít ready to give up his birthright.
Frank finds Cuba to be more of an adventure than he expected, but other than almost being killed once or twice, itís not all bad. He falls in love with a woman and with Cuba . . . but does he get the recipe?! *biting nails*
