Hasta la Vista, Lola! Virtual Book Tour February 2010~Review

Hasta la Vista, Lola! by Misa Ramirez (click on cover to order at Amazon)



About the Book:
What’s a girl to do when she finds out she’s been killed? Pinch herself to make sure she’s not a ghost, for starters. When Dolores Cruz comes home to her parents’ house to find every relative she has mourning her death, all hell breaks loose. With the help of on-again/off-again love Jack Callaghan, and juggling a new case thrown at her by muy misterioso boss Manny Camacho, it’s up to fledgling detective Lola to find out who’s behind the identity theft and suddenly wants her dead.

My thoughts:

I had a really hard time getting into this book. I'm not sure if it is where I came in on the second book in the series or if it was all the Spanish being spoken { without translation} in the book. I know very few spanish words and even that wasn't enough to get me through the book. I feel as though I missed a lot of things by not understanding what was going on, and felt completely lost while trying to figure out what so and so just said. I think that if I could understand spanish a little better then this would be a wonderful book, but as it is, I can't understand it so the book holds no appeal for me.

    What a bummer that the Spanish words interfered with your ability to enjoy the book. To me (who doesn't speak very much Spanish either :)), the dollops of Spanish added an authenticity and sassiness to the character without being too overwhelming or detracting from story.

    This was such a FANTASTIC read...I loved this book. Lola is one of those characters that becomes a good friend. Can't wait until a third book comes out so I can visit with Lola again. I'm not into translating languages while I'm reading commercial fiction, but the sprinkles of spanish throughout were easy to follow and really made the flavor of Lola stand out.
