LAUNCH EVENT/BOOKS & BOOKS PRESS: Carolina Garcia-Aguilera, the author of ten
novels, is a unique figure in the literary world. A licensed private
investigator for the past twenty-five years, she has won prestigious awards for
her books in the popular Lupe Solano mystery series. Magnolia (Books &
Books Press, $16.95) Garcia-Aguilera’s new novel is a clever, witty and
engaging story where two great American pastimes – sex and sports – come
together. The reader will follow the story of Magnolia Larson, a beautiful,
twenty-two year old woman from a conservative, Catholic Minneapolis family, as
she transforms herself into a kind of “sports geisha,” a high-priced hooker for
elite athletes. An irresistible page-turner, Magnolia is a sensual smorgasbord of racy encounters, playful
fantasy and everything in between.
On a sultry August afternoon, twenty-two-year-old Magnolia Larson finds herself sitting on a barstool at the Miami Sports Bar, nursing a rum and Coke and having to decide whether to remain in Miami or return home to Minneapolis.
