Happy Publication Day When We Left Cuba!!!

Happy Publication Day When We Left Cuba!!!

I am SO SO SO excited to announce that the absolutely stunning follow up to Chanel Cleeton’s Next Year in Havana is OFFICIALLY HERE! When We Left Cuba let’s us revisit the Perez sisters, this time following Beatriz as she navigates the new world she finds herself in, after fleeing Cuba with her family.

I will be sharing my full review on April 12th, right here as part of the official blog tour, but let me just say - all of my hopes for this book were 100% met and exceeded with this book. Beatriz was my very favorite part of the first book, and I am all the more in love with her now. I cannot wait for all of you to join me on this adventure of love, life and intrigue. Prepare to fall completely in love yourself.
