Praise

Praise for Death of a Telenovela Star

“Well-drawn, amusing characters lift this witty novella from Dovalpage starring former Havana, Cuba, police detective Marlene Martínez . . . just enough red herrings to keep readers on their toes. Fans of lighter mysteries will have fun.” 
—Publishers Weekly

Praise for Teresa Dovalpage


“Dovalpage wields her considerable authorial skill in this intricately plotted tale of jealousy, revenge, and the dark side of love.”
—Isabella Maldonado, award–winning author of the Veranda Cruz mysteries

A fast-paced, richly layered tour de force. The twists, turns, and santería rituals that abound in this complex noir will please crime readers and armchair travelers alike. Bravo, Teresa Dovalpage! Encore!”
—Lucha Corpi, author of the Gloria Damasco mysteries

“Amusing, observant . . . [A] devastating depiction of prejudice in 1980s Cuba.”
The Miami Herald

“Dovalpage’s first crime novel is a well-cooked stew of culture and cuisine . . . [A] stunningly unexpected conclusion.”
The Taos News 

“A rich and perceptive portrayal of daily life in Cuba.”
Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel

“[A] dazzling culinary mystery . . . Those expecting a traditional food cozy will be happily surprised.” 
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
