Thank you for stopping by. Genealogy comes into play in the second book of our Jeremy Santos and The Outfit series. Casa de los Santos picks up where book one left off. In book 2, our characters are just a little bit older and hopefully a lot wiser. In Casa de los Santos, we come face to face with two vibrant families. They both have complex and interwoven branches in their family trees which leads to some recriminations and many resentments.
The first family we will consider are the Matamoros of Monterrey, Mexico. This is a well-to-do clan that lives in a palatial compound outside of the city. Their power stems from money. Their wealth is the result of business connections and a growing family run law firm. “A massive painting of her great grandparents, Antonio and Graciela Matamoros, and their two children, Nestor and Olivia, hangs high on the wall above the main passageway into the home.”
Our second family goes under the name Greagoir. They have, for the most part, stayed behind in Eire, the emerald isle. A new branch of this clan’s tree, however, has sprouted and is now thriving in the “new world” under the name Greeley. There is an undercurrent of hostility and resentment brewing between this new branch and the main tree. It takes a peacemaker in the family to keep things from boiling over.
We hope that you enjoy this insight into our second novel, Casa de los Santos, and that, after you have read the book series, you will give us a review. We are always interested in hearing your thoughts.
