" --Patricia Engel, author of It's Not Love, It's Just ParisTwo divorces have taught Mariela Estevez that she's better suited to being a mistress than a wife. Whose heart needs all that "forever after" trouble? Still, her affair with her married lover, Hector, has become problematic--especially because he's also a tenant in her apartment building in the heart of Miami's Calle Ocho in Little Havana. But when Hector is found dead just steps from Mariela's back door, on the eve of her fortieth birthday, she's forced to examine her life--and come up with a plan to save it, fast. . . Complicating matters, Hector's passing sparks the unexpected return of a gift Mariela rejected years ago and thought she'd never have to face again: clairvoyance. Suddenly, Mariela's visions come swiftly and unbidden, as do revelations about her other tenants. Lost loves, hidden yearnings, old jealousies--all reside on Calle Ocho. Most of all, Mariela's second sight awakens her not just to the truth about Hector's death and the secrets in others' lives--but to the possibilities blooming within her own. With warmth, wit, and insight, award-winning author Anjanette Delgado explores one woman's flawed but heartfelt attempt to live and love well, transporting readers to the center of contemporary Little Havana and a community of uniquely human, unforgettable characters. "The Clairvoyant of Calle Ocho reminds me of why I started reading in the first place--to be enchanted, to be carried away from my world and dropped into a world more vivid and incandescent. Anjanette Delgado loves her characters, even the miscreants, and makes us love them too. " --John Dufresne, author of No Regrets, Coyote

The Heartbreak Pill

by Anjanette Delgado

Is it really necessary to suffer for love? What if an easy-to-swallow pill could turn love off and on? You wouldn't desire what isn't good for you. You wouldn't cry for what cannot be. You'd just live. You'd be happy. Erika Luna is a thirty-something scientist living and working in Miami. When her husband of seven years -- the very successful, very smart, very good-looking founding partner of one of Miami's top public relations firms -- falls in lust with another woman, their marriage spirals toward divorce and Erika's practical nature leads her down a strange path. What is a scientist to do when slapped with a pain so deep it interferes with her breathing? Develop a cure, of course. Erika moves into a new apartment and turns it into her own personal laboratory. She frantically begins mixing potions and uses herself as a guinea pig as she desperately tries to create a pill that will rid the world of heartbreak forever. As she navigates the murky waters of the recently divorced, Erika also struggles to find her own sense of self and the answer to whether love, and its pain, is worth the risk.

Pildora del mal amor (Heartbreak Pill; Spanish edition)

by Anjanette Delgado

¿Es realmente necesario sufrir por amor? Imagina tu vida si tuvieras en algún lugar de tu cuerpo una píldora, palanca o botoncito que controlara tu corazón. Ya no sufrirías por Jacinto, Carlos o Gumersindo. Tendrías tu versión personal de "santo que no me quiere con no rezarle tengo" y cuando al hombre al que amas con toda tu alma te dijera "hasta aquí", podrías reaccionar como la mujer adulta, inteligente y moderna que eres. Erika Luna vive en Miami. Es doctora en química, atractiva e inteligente: la imagen misma de la mujer moderna. Pero cuando tras siete años de matrimonio, su súper-atractivo, súper inteligente y súper exitoso esposo Martín se enamora de otra mujer, su matrimonio se destruye de la noche a la mañana y amenaza destruirla con él. ¿Qué hace una científica de vocación cuando el dolor del mal amor amenaza con convertirla en una lunática descontrolada y pone en riesgo su carrera, su cordura y su fe en la vida? Inventar una cura, por supuesto. Para ello, Erika arriesgará hasta su vida para convertirse en su propio conejillo de Indias. Su misión: librar para siempre al mundo del mal amor...y componer su propio corazón. En el proceso, tendrá que luchar contra la mujer que fue para convertirse en la mujer que siempre quiso ser.
