Reviews on Amazon.

This book is a fascinating, informative, Must-read for anyone interested in investing in or just learning about Mexico. The daily trials, frustrating legal machinations, and colorful characters are endemic to rural life in Mexico. Flores manages to create an easy to follow account of a convoluted–but typical– Mexican experience. A delightful account of Mexico’s daily life. Excellent. —Kenneth J. Lillo

Reviews on Goodreads.

This book had me smacking my head going OMG and chuckling along the way. I could relate to certain parts due to living in Mexico but we are more urban than the author and this is where the dynamics change. Hope to see more of the Authors adventures. –Lynne DeSantis

The author tells the struggles she has endured as a property owner and as the treasurer of the homeowner´s association. She is honest and humorous in her stories. She is a strong gringa in a machisimo world to survive the tales. Hats off to the author and her family. I enjoyed reading her stories. — Fiona
