Book Description:
Enjoy Taos as it celebrates its sacred and secular festivals. It s murder. Ole!The warm portrait of New Mexico s Hispanic community recalls Rudolfo Anaya s Bless Me Ultima (0 446 60025 3) or John Nichol s Milagro Beanfield War (0 345 41016 5).The Taos Festival mysteries continue with Las Fiestas! Christina Garcia y Grant s lovely old hacienda, converted from her grandmother s gracious abode to a B&B so that lawyer Christy can pursue a writing career, is bursting with guests. Not all of them are welcome. Meanwhile, the Friday night La Fiestacita summons la gente, the people. Though they have come to party, the presence of La Do a Sebastiana, Death, is a reminder that life is only worth living if Death is close at hand. It s the edge, the risk, that gives color. La Do a Sebastiana does summon someone to her death cart before the night is over, only the partygoers don t know it. Newcomer Evelyn Bottoms, a suave Englishman, is unaware that his gallery El Museo has been burglarized and Bobby Mascarenas killed. Missing is Cindy, Bobby s co employee and the date of lawyer Ignacio Baca, who spends La Fiestacita looking vainly for her. The next morning reveals the grim story.Christy, moved by Iggy s grief and willing to help her new friend, Dr. Bottoms, queries her primo, Police Chief Garcia, and learns that her cousin has little to go on. Aided by her more or less permanent boarder (and suitor) Mac McCloud, a retired surgeon, and her old friend La Do a Abogado, New Mexico s first woman lawyer, Christy queries the local arts community and learns that someone is stealing priceless art from local churches. Is there a link between the robberies and the murder? And there seem to be a lot of newcomers to town...
