Vida Blue by Susie Perez Fernandez is the story of a young woman named Ariadne Cordero, who goes by Ari, as she deals with abrupt and unexpected changes in her life following the departure of her partner, Santos. Ari is the ideal woman: young, beautiful, intelligent, and wealthy. As she collects the pieces of her life and makes a transatlantic move, a series of introductions and men filter into her life in what, by all accounts, feel like happy accidents. As a renewed sense of affection and longing blossoms, Ari questions her feelings and motives. It isn't until she is catapulted into the dark machinations of danger that lurk behind every smile and around every corner that Ari is forced to confront a life - her own life - in danger and a heart that yearns to live and love once more.
Vida Blue by Susie Perez Fernandez will sweep readers across the globe with a narrative and plot that cross borders nearly as much as the story itself steers the heart rate up. This is an action romance, something we don't come across as often as we'd like, and the scheming that is drawn out by the author is spectacular. The characters are engaging (particularly Ari and her friends), and in a rich twist that starts at the book's beginning, the reader is hooked with questions, the answers to which are only slowly revealed. It's rare to find a story where every page is packed with suspense, but the pacing is even-handed and smooth. In less skilled hands Vida Blue might have felt rushed, but Susie Perez Fernandez has written a book that provides a perfect blend of energy, action, and...of course...romance.
