Review of THE LAST NOTE by Zaina Alfaro
(A Miami Music Mystery)

Yes, all three combine in this novel: the City of Miami, Music, and Mystery (and Murder!) A perky and fast-paced mystery with a likable and easily empathized with heroine, THE LAST NOTE draws from the author's own personal experiences in Miami and in music to create a winning heroine who will draw attention from other characters and from readers. Meanwhile, readers glean a lot about the Miami Cuban-American experiences, about Latinas,

Miami, FL. Vy Blanco was screaming for someone to help her.
She suffered from claustrophobia.
The elderly woman let her rest on her couch.
Happy Corporate America Building. 29 floors & Vy (Cuban American, BS; English) would be in her office. She worked as a legal law aid.
Steel Horse Bar. Vy (Cuban American, lead singer), Carlos (Cuban-American, lead guitarist), Adrianna (drummer, computer guru), & Rob (Canadian, bass player) were blasting the place with their music.

Cassandra ran out of the off

Vy is a singer in a band that regularly sings at the Steel Horse Bar.  Suddenly she finds herself in the middle of a murder scene and her sister zips to her side.   The inseparable sisters start dating the police officers in charge of the case and get tangled up in trying to solve it.  Someone isn't quite who they seem, though, and Vy starts being threatened.  What will it take for the killer to finally leave her alone (and discovered!)?

Overall, I didn't hate this book, but I didn't love it eith

"The Last Note" struck a chord with me! From the opening moments of this engaging read, I was hooked until the last page was turned. Zaida Alfaro demonstrated a real writer's flair and a storyteller's wit. She knows how to pull you in and keep you turning the pages. With a setting like Miami, she could have easily immersed us with atmosphere and description - but she wisely avoids this. Her descriptions are poignant enough to paint an effective mental picture without taking your focus away from ...more

I received this book for free from Great Escape Tours in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Today's feature, The Last Note, is set in Miami with a Cuban twenty something aspiring singer songwriter. How fucking cool is that? Don't worry though all the usual ametuer sluething, humor with an eccentric cast comes through organically and cohesively. There's drinking, swearing, and innuendo but it's all above board.

My novel’s, The Last Note's main backdrop, the amazing city of Miami, Florida, is beloved and well-known to me. I was born and raised in Miami, and like the novel’s main character Vy, I am a singer/songwriter, as well as the lead singer to a self-proclaimed cover band. All things relating to music or literature are my passion. I keep a journal, and I am constantly writing poems, stories, and any t ...more
