"Fair Cuba sits enthroned in an ocean of light"--these were the lyrics to a popular song about the the island's enchantment taught in grade schools before Castro's time. (Yes, just like Puerto Rico, there's an ocean between us..) I don't remember reading a mystery that struck me with such a strong sense of place as does this novel about mostly impoverished Havana set in 2003. It makes me root for better relations with the US and Cuba--neither side has anything to lose and Cubans have much to gain. Yarmila, author of the blog "Yarmi Cooks Cuban" is found dead by her California journalist boyfriend. Matt has just come to Havana to propose despite having only visited her once before. The police, the Cuban secret service, and a Santeria diviner for hire all investigate The blog posts complete with recipes and her followers comments are a bittersweet highlight. You can do a lot with canned milk.
