Havana Heat

Havana Heat is one of the Lupe Solano mysteries by Carolina Garcia-Aguilera.

from the back of the book:

Feisty, fiery Cuban-American p.i. Lupe Solana knows her way in and out of every tight corner of her tropical Miami home. But now things are about to get hotter for Lupe than they have ever gotten before.

A fabled art masterpiece allegedly left behind in Castro's Cuba has Lupe Solana intrigued — and contemplating an undercover excursion into the deadly heart of out-of-bounds Havana. But when the murder of a shady business contact is followed closely by another criminally assisted death, Lupe is suddenly searching for connections between the two local homicides and her covert art-rescue mission. Because it's beginning to look more and more as if Lupe's own life depends upon her making them...

The book held my attention and I found it interesting throughout, but I didn't feel the need to hear details of every meal she ate. The meals are described with much more thoroughness than I care about. It is annoying, and I find it intrudes in the story much more than it adds color to the story. This is yet another series where I like the first book well enough but not enough to read more.
