Lost Years. 5th in the Lilly Series is now Availble
This is the 5th book I have read in this series now. The author has so much heart, thought and talent that goes into her series you can’t help but be drawn into it.
This book takes you back to when Diego Junior was a teenager which explains some details from the story that came out before The Lost Years. “Memoirs of a Mobster”.
We all think of mobsters, gangsters and drug dealers as unscrupulous, evil people, and most of them are. But with Judy’s Lilly Series they are more than just mobsters and gangsters. They are people who love and hurt, who have children just like anyone else. Some are not given a choice to be who they are, some are born into it. Some try to run from it and get new starts, but where ever they go trouble finds them.
Lilly did her best to try and take Junior away from all that. To have a normal life, but with the name Monitiago being known as the biggest crime lords in the United States and Mexico that is not an easy task.
Junior has shot and killed people, including a couple of his uncles. Junior now feels there may be something wrong with him. He has no regret for what he does, until he falls in love for the very first time and of course with someone else girlfriend, which leads to a whole lot of trouble.
The Uncles have done a good job with grooming him, and teaching him how to protect himself. But not only that, they taught him to respect women as well. Like no sex. And that family and friendship are also very important. Junior gets into trouble; he gets grounded, just like any normal teenager. The only difference between him and other teenagers is he knows how to shoot and will kill you if he has to.
Judy Serrano has so much going on in the stories, she tells parts that terrify you, parts that bring a smile to your face and parts that brings tears to your eyes. She reminds me of the author Danielle Steel who brings out the same emotions in her stories. But don’t take my word for it. Go out and buy the book and if you haven’t read any of the Lilly series buy them all. You won’t be disappointed. I would love to see this series turn into a movie or a TV mini-series one day.
I can’t wait to see what she has coming out next. Judy Serrano is awe-inspiring, outstanding story teller.
