Growing up, Lilí María Fernandez was affectionately known as the family "wild child." The life of the party, she loved to dance, especially salsa, merengue, and bachata, and often sang beside her father during rehearsals for his trío group. But tragedy and loss have drawn out Lilí's caretaking side, compelling her to become a victim's advocate. These days, the special rhythms of the past seem like a distant memory. Until she meets Diego
Reyes . . .
A police officer with the Chicago PD, Diego also has a talent for playing classical Spanish guitar. And Lilí soon finds herself inspired by his passion--for the music, for her, and for their shared love of familia and community. Can Diego reignite Lilí's fun-loving spirit, persuade her to balance work and pleasure--and embrace her wild side once more?
|This is the last book about the three sisters. In this one, Lili the youngest is working at helping women at a women’s abuse center and is also a victim’s advocate. The book opens with her arguing with a police officer that she called to the scene and that she needs to get inside. He, of course, is not letting her in. this would be the theme for most of the book. Diego Reyes a Chicago police officer finally lets her in when his partner asks for her and that is when he finds out what she does. That first meeting does not go well between them and when the next time they meet at the youth center he is surprised that she is there. Thinking that she is some high society women just coming down to the city to make herself feel good? He finds out later that is not the case. She also argues with Diego just because she likes him but he thinks he knows everything. When that begin to take the kids on a few trips from the center they find out that they have some things in common and music is one of them. She even takes him to her house and he meets her sisters and their husbands. After that it starts to go downhill when he won’t talk about himself and when his sister shows up she asks for Lil’s help, not his. It is here that he lets his anger take a hold of him and tells her things that he later regrets but he cannot apologize because she won’t talk to him. She misses him but she knows she must move on.
