About the books 

 

“13 with Alfred”  Thrilled with anticipation Valerie gets ready to face the most  important moment of her life. It is the day in which she will  reveal the discovery of the millennium to investors of the  company where she has been working at since last summer,  and of course this is not an exaggeration.   Nevertheless, the elements of nature seem to be against  Valerie’s plans and several misfortunes turn that morning into  a true hell. First of all, the way to the airport with a  pessimistic taxi driver drives Valerie almost crazy with his  prediction that the end of the world is near. Second, a  powerful typhoon arrives in Illinois and sets the entire  population into a state of emergency and panic. And finally,  the majority of the flights scheduled for that morning are  cancelled.  After hours of uncertainty, the airport informs passengers  that Valerie’s flight will be the last to take off on that day of  chaos and confusion. What she first understands as a stroke  of luck turns hours later into a dreadful nightmare since  Valerie never reaches her wished destination. Instead she has  to spend a week with the most bizarre people that she has  ever met in a dangerous village in Mexico.   Acts of betrayal, conspiracies, friendships, romance,  adventures and even a murder will take place during those  frantic seven days. Will Valerie be able to survive? And the  most important question of all: Will she finally get what she is  looking for?  “The Saga Progreso”  “13 with Alfred” is the first novel in a series of three titled  “The Saga Progreso.” The series mixes several literature  genres: thriller, chick lit, contemporary women’s fiction and  romantic comedy. Although readers do not necessarily need  to read all three novels to understand the whole story, those  who read the first and the second novels of the series will get  to know some of the characters that play a role in the third  one. “The Saga Progreso” is about the pursuit of happiness. It also  makes readers think about some of the important issues in  our lives - always, however, from a humorous, zeitgeisty,  naughty and, above all, touching standpoint.
