She has lived in a high rise next to the Holland Tunnel ever since she was elected to the Hudson County Board of Chosen Freeholders. Her sudden and unexpected election--to a seat vacated by the untimely death of her predecessor in a sleazy motel--made her the first woman to be elected legislator at the county level.

But now, all Otilia wants is to click her heels together and disappear from the mess shes in. Faced with the threat of serving hard time for her part in an illicit love affair, Otilia finds herself charged with four counts of aiding and abetting extortion and three counts of mail fraud. How could delivering an envelope full of money for her lover--a psychiatrist providing millions of dollars worth of services to county facilities--to the county executive be considered bribery?

Cuban-American writer Beatriz Rivera serves up another offbeat love story full of oddball characters in absurd situations: Dr. Chico Chanca, a clog-wearing, tea-drinking psychiatrist who is obsessed with yoga, financial success, and cheap-motel sex- his gorgeous wife Laura, a passionate animal rights advocate and brilliant veterinarian who has a predilection for expensive designer clothing, organic food, and breast implants- and Amber Delrio, the owner of Sacred Greens Farm and a yoga school who has taken an eternal vow of chastity. Loosely based on the machinations of New Jersey politicians, the off-the-wall antics of Riveras eccentric characters are sure to entertain and amuse.
