All New! Agave Blues

Mix together a little family, drama, ghosts, and tequila, and you get a hell of a cocktail!

Sometimes la sangre atrae “the blood calls you back” and when Maya gets the call to go back to her agave roots in order to claim the body of her long-missing father, her world changes forever.
