Hasta Mañana Reviews

Hasta Mañana is a fast-moving and exciting thriller novel with great characters and a story where the line between the bad guys and good guys is crossed as often as the U.S. border. Wilkerson accurately portrayed my experience of working as a Border Patrol Agent while keeping me entertained the whole way with each chapter drawing me to the next, leading to an unexpected conclusion.”

Hasta Mañana is a true page turner. I connected very quickly with the central character of the story and was rooting for her throughout this highly suspenseful thriller.

The backdrop of the story is set on the U.S. /Mexico border and accurately depicts the complexities of the relevant issues relating to the border today. I highly recommend this book and congratulate Ms. Wilkerson on her outstanding work!”

“Miriam, a teenage mother, now 34 years old…
A son turning eighteen who only knows her as an older sister and…
The son’s drug overdose before she can tell him the truth…
All sets the stage for Miriam’s wild ride that launches when she joins the Border Patrol to uncover the source of the smuggled drugs.  From there her ride spins into well more than she bargained for when she learns the realities of border life and who to trust while dealing with her own mother on her deathbed.  By the end Miriam is propelled not only to the shocking conclusion, but one that puts her very life on the line.
An unparalleled adventure based in fact, not fantasy.  Why hasn’t Hollywood come knocking yet?”

“When I began reading Hasta Mañana, I could not put the book down. The story is profound and highlights the current drug and immigration issues at the border in a way that doesn’t choose a political side, but instead, allows the reader to be sensitive to the very difficult dilemmas. This book could easily be turned into a box office hit in the category of Thriller/Suspense.”
