This is a terrific book cover to cover. The young woman portrayed is well written and thought out as she tries to navigate the murky waters of her life when her father dies and leaves her in charge of the family hotel business. It is not where she predicted she would be until much later as she has found her personal footing as a political speech writer for an aspiring mayor. She finds herself drawn to the candidate which presents a whole different number of problems. How she finds a way to survive all the changes is what makes the story great. I particularly loved the tension filled pages describing Nina’s milieu of struggle to make sense of what is happening to her heart and to her life.
