About the Book:

The road to love is paved with assets and liabilities.

Certified Public Accountant Antonia Castellón is a family-oriented, results-driven, number cruncher. Her mission is clear: find a good husband who will please her traditional Cuban family.

Disappointed by mainstream dating opportunities that never pan out, she designs her own nine-week dating program, Audited Financial DatingTM (AFD), proclaiming herself its founder, president, and first client.

AFD’s premise is simple-hold yourself accountable until you find the man of your dreams. But having been burned in a steamy love affair with an international bachelor she can’t have a future with, Antonia has another hard and fast rule for AFD: all men must be deeply rooted in her hometown of Miami, Florida.

That is, until her family is struck with tragedy, and the one man Antonia least expects is there to pick up the pieces.

Now, Antonia finds herself at the end of her program with a tough choice to make, and three different men tugging at her heart.

Can any of these men be the love of Antonia’s life, or just more debits on her romance balance sheet? Whoever she chooses, will she find herself auditing her final decision?

Set in Miami, Florida, in the 2010s, Antonia’s AFD chronicles will quickly take you down an emotionally complex, funny, and poignant path of love, loss, friendship, multifaceted family dynamics, and the bonds which unite us all.
