Two divorces have taught Mariela Estevez that she’s better
suited to being a mistress than a wife. Whose heart needs all that “forever
after” trouble? Still, her affair with her married lover, Hector, has become
problematic—especially because he’s also a tenant in her apartment building in
the heart of Miami’s Calle Ocho in Little Havana. But when Hector is found dead
just steps from Mariela’s back door, on the eve of her fortieth birthday, she’s
forced to examine her life—and come up with a plan to save it, fast.
Complicating matters, Hector’s passing sparks the unexpected
return of a gift Mariela rejected years ago and thought she’d never have to
face again: clairvoyance. Suddenly, Mariela’s visions come swiftly and
unbidden, as do revelations about her other tenants. Lost loves, hidden
yearnings, old jealousies—all reside on Calle Ocho. Most of all, Mariela’s
second sight awakens her not just to the truth about Hector’s death and the
secrets in others’ lives—but to the possibilities blooming within her own.
