Midwest Book Review
"State of the Union is another stellar entry in Kitty Felde's outstanding Fina Mendoza Mystery series. State of the Union has it all -- a protagonist you will cheer for, warmth and humor, and a good mystery story underpinning it all. Readers will get an inside look at how their government works -- Felde handles this beautifully, weaving her expertise in seamlessly -- and so much more.
Jan Burke, author of the Irene Kelly Mysteries
A touching story of a girl in search of her place in the world following the loss of her mother. Like a lovely rainbow cake, the story is richly layered with mystery, friendship, and family conflict, and stars a colorful cast of characters. State of the Union is a heartwarming read, a gem of a book.
Ginger Park, author of "The Hundred Choices Department Store" and "The Royal Bee"
Felde, executive producer of the podcasts Book Club for Kids and The Fina Mendoza Mysteries, combines her knowledge of the behind-the-scenes workings of Congress and Capitol Hill's historic locales with suspense, humor, and a young, first-person Latina protagonist who is alive with realistic curiosity, empathy, and determination. Woven into the plot, with a light but meaningful touch, are political differences, immigration issues, Fina's eventful approach to inquiry and research, and a strong, loving family still adjusting to loss and change. A lively, diverse mystery with enjoyable, informative plotting and a relatable young female protagonist.

Will our independent young heroine, Fina Mendoza, be able to solve this mystery and take us along for the very enjoyable ride, loaded with some history, politics, a new canine client and a lot of warmth, family and fun? I certainly think she can take on anything and we can all happily share her and her youthful adventures!
