Cigar Barons: Blood Isn't Thicker Than Water - It's War by Isabella is a family drama with a little bit of suspense and romance to go with it. The story follows the ever exclusive Huerta family. Their story began when the patriarch of the family, Alejandro Huerta, came to Nicaragua and started his cigar business. Fast forward to the present where the new generation of the Huerta family is now taking the business to new heights. While Sofia Huerta is working hard to make sure the family legacy lives on, her brother RJ is busy merry-making and womanizing. When their father died, RJ expected that he would be the heir to the family’s fortune, but his father left everything to Sofia. Surprised and out of his mind, RJ believes that he has been wronged. Now there is a tussle between the siblings, no one is giving up and no one is ready to let go. What can they do now? With such a family dynamic, can their business survive this?
This was a fast-paced, action-packed family drama that had me on the edge of my seat. I lived for the family dynamic, how the sibling war started and how Sofia was just trying to do the best for the family. I loved to hate RJ. He was despicable, needy and greedy, but he was very well written. He knew what he wanted and he knew how he was going to get it. He was not shy to exert force to get what he wanted. Sofia’s growth was tremendous, she was fighting for her rights and what was right without backing down. This is one of the best novels I have read so far this year! Brilliant!
