This second book about the charitable thrift store in a little town named Paradise Valley entails danger, mystery, friendship and just plain hilarity at times.
A gold doubloon, found outside the new thrift store, leads Cynthia Taylor-Ramirez and her best friend Maria Teresa on a quest, seeking out a certain beaded bracelet for reasons unknown. It takes them south of the border, down Mexico way, with villainous cartel leaders dogging their tracks.
At times the situation comes to life or death, but our intrepid twosome continues their journey, knowing that the bracelet is important but not a clue as to why.
I hope your travels with Cyndi and Maria Teresa will be fun, interesting and adventurous. I have inserted some history along with the tale, so that, even though this is entirely fiction, the historical facts are real.
