Book Description

In the fourth and final book of the Molly DeWitt Romantic Mystery Series, Molly and handsome, homicide detective Michael O’Hara are determined to discover what has happened to Michael’s favorite uncle, Miguel, who has gone missing on the eve of the Cuban revolution.

Hot Schemes is an intriguing murder mystery, but also includes the constantly evolving romance between Molly and Michael, who have always had an undeniable chemistry. Through intriguing descriptions of the lives of Cuban exiles, readers here also get a glimpse into the Cuban-American community heritage and the problems they face. All are woven together to form an engaging tale with all the right ingredients of murder, romance, and mystery.

Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

With an eye for detail that captures the essence of Cuban Miami, Woods's (Hot Money) latest offers an engaging combination of mystery, romance, travelogue and politics. In their quest to solve the mystery of his Uncle Miguel's disappearance, police detective Michael O'Hara and his girlfriend, Molly DeWitt, are drawn deep into the underground world of Cuban exiles. Now in their fourth mystery, Michael and Molly are not only trying to find out what's happened to the missing uncle, but also what's happening with their relationship. Even Molly seems to suspect the plot, which invoves Cuban Terrorist organizations, is overambitious, saying that it's like "something out of a political thriller." But bad political thrillers (unlike good mysteries) rely on coincidence and luck rather than sharp detecting skills for the denouementand unfortunately that is the case here. That said, the chemistry between Michael and Molly is provocative enough ("the man had amazing reserves of stamina and the touch of a sinner") to make one wish that there was more time spent on their relationship. The novel's real strength is Woods's presentation of Cuban life in Miami, a thought-provoking glimpse into the life of Cuban exiles, their problems and the ever-present longing for a life that no longer exists.

3.0 out of 5 stars Marti' s review June 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Book 4 of this series, and my least favorite. The book concentrated its effort in the history of Cuban Americans living in Miami, and the disappearance of Michael's uncle Miguel. Some intrigue, some mystery and just the mention of romance. I feel the relationship between Molly and Michael was left unfinished with many unanswered questions. I was disappointed by the ending of this series.

Although this was a good read, it was not as good as the previous 3 books in this series. I still like the Molly and Michael connection.

Just basic. Did not keep up my interest. Left her son a lot with the neighbor. Romance with detective goes nowhere.

If you like Miami, you will enjoy this book. It is a good light mystery and easy read. The characters are good and seem real. Its fun to read the main character to see how she gets involved on purpose. Good to read if you want to curl up with a good read that is light.

She's also especially partial to small towns wherever they may be. In Amazing Gracie, as in her later Trinity Harbor series, Woods creates a fictional version of the town where she spends summers on the shores of the Potomac River. "This town just lends itself to fascinating characters and a charming locale," she says.

A member of Novelists Inc., Sisters in Crime and Romance Writers of America, Sherryl divides her time between her childhood summer home overlooking the Potomac River in Colonial Beach, Virginia, and her oceanfront home with its lighthouse view, in Key Biscayne, Florida. "Wherever I am, if there's no water in sight, I get a little antsy," she says.
