About the Book

Growing up in Spain, Puri always felt a deep connection to chocolate, a passion she believed was passed down from her father. It wasn't until his passing, however, that she uncovered another legacy left to her—a cocoa plantation in the Ecuadorian town of Vinces, affectionately known as “París Chiquito.” With aspirations of embracing this newfound inheritance and the prospect of starting afresh after the ruins of World War I, Puri and her husband, Cristóbal, embark on a journey across the Atlantic. Yet, it quickly becomes evident that not everyone is pleased with Puri's entitlement to the estate.

Tragedy strikes when a hired assassin, aiming for Puri, mistakenly takes Cristóbal's life instead. In a desperate attempt to protect herself, Puri adopts her late husband's identity, navigating the complexities of her father's heritage in disguise. Embraced by the freedom from societal expectations, she nonetheless faces numerous obstacles at the estate, including unexpected family ties, clandestine relationships, and the shadowy aspects of her father's past. Complicating matters is her burgeoning affection for a mysterious figure, even as she seeks to uncover the foe threatening her envisioned future.

Ideal for aficionados of Julia Alvarez and Silvia Moreno-Garcia, this captivating narrative whisks readers away to the vibrant environs of 1920s Ecuador, masterfully weaving together elements of familial intrigue, suspenseful adventure, and the authentic chronicles of the locale renowned as the cradle of cacao.
