Muerte Con Carne by Shane McKenzie

If you have never read a book by this author you have no clue what you are missing. This book will have you from the first word. I read it in one sitting. I couldn’t put it down.

The story starts with a bang then goes to a man and woman making plans to do something they shouldn’t. It’s dangerous and illegal. They have taken all the necessary items they will need for their journey. The woman has mood swings that stem from her childhood and being an orphan. She is Hispanic and wants to blow the cover on how illegal immigrants that are crossing the border are treated. She is on a mission and nothing will stop her. The man with her is in love with her and refuses to let her do this alone. They make the drive and check into a motel to relax before they put their plans into action. While checking in she gets a room and makes him get his own room. This doesn’t make him happy. He accepts it as one of her mood swings. He decides to leave and walk across the small town to the bar. Needless to say he winds up super drunk and doesn’t remember how he got back to his room. The next morning the woman goes into town looking for something to eat. She can smell something that smells heavenly. Her stomach is growling. She walks up to the taco truck and orders for them both as a peace-offering. They tell her that it is the best tasting tacos she will ever eat. She returns to the hotel and eats her food and tries to rouse her friend but he is passed out so she leaves his food in front of the door. A little while later he emerges and eats his food. They resume their plans and drive into the desert to find the place they will plan to go over the border and get caught. They locate the perfect place and get into a huge fight. Driving back to the hotel is not fun and they go to their own rooms. He leaves and goes back to the bar and she decides to go do this on her own.

Now I won’t tell you much more but I will say she runs into trouble. By trouble I mean a world of crap. The hits just keep coming in this book. I never saw the ending coming. I was totally shocked. To be honest I didn’t want the book to end. Hopefully there will be another one…..hint hint! I highly recommend this book! It is amazing and will be one you will recommend to others as well. This book is awesome!!
