Jill Santopolo’s last novel, THE LIGHT WE LOST broke records in sales. Somehow I missed it. So I was determined to get a review copy of MORE THAN WORDS asap.
Nina Gregory is heir to the Gregory Hotels. Her dad and grandad worked hard to make their family name rise to the top. Nina was young when her mom died in a tragic car accident. So it was her and her dad together..
When Nina’s father dies her world changes drastically. She realizes her dad had always shielded her from all things bad. But, now, she’s running this company and discovering things that do not add up…
Nina has long known she’d be expected to run the family business. In fact, she has been schooled to do just that. However, she never thought it would happen so soon. She’s been enjoying working in politics and writing speeches for a smart young Latino man named Rafael. He’s running for mayor of New York City. It’s a big deal and even more so if he wins. As she feels herself becoming closer to Rafael her relationship with her long-time friend Tim begins to change.
Mina is finding out that she is not the person she used to be. All bets are off. We have a front row seat to Mina’s discovery of herself. It’s a whirlwind story filled with mystery and romance.
I think you’ll love reading about Nina and her quest for herself.
My review copy arrived via the generous people at Putnam, a division of Penguin Random House. Thanks a bunch. I loved it.
