A romantic suspense comedy set in Silicon Valley, San Antonio, Texas and
Nuevo Laredo, Mexico– a young Latina elementary school teacher, Dina
Salazar, is asked by her Mexican-born grandmother to rescue her cousins from
a dangerous Mexican drug cartel. After all, her stern grandmother tells her,
she is the “smart one” in the family.The mission involves
convincing the DEA that her cousin and her cousin’s child will be killed by
the new leader of this dangerous drug cartel if they are not rescued.
Another obstacle: Dina must contact her cousin and arrange a clandestine
pick-up site in a Mexican-Texas border town. To do so, she has to recruit
help from her hated ex-fiance, her quirky brother-in-law and a Hispanic DEA
agent. Being an amateur sleuth is no picnic, but what’s a girl to do
when “la familia” calls?
