"A smart, sexy, delicious novel."-- People

"Santopolo is a true master of matters of the heart." --Taylor Jenkins Reid

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Light We Lost comes a tender and moving new novel about a woman at a crossroads after the death of her father, and caught between the love of two men.

Nina has always known who she's supposed to be. But is that who she truly is?

Nina Gregory has always been a good daughter. Raised by her father, owner of New York City's glamorous Gregory Hotels, Nina was taught that family, reputation, and legacy are what matter most. And Tim--her devoted boyfriend and best friend since childhood--feels the same. But when Nina's father dies, he leaves behind a secret that shocks Nina to her core.

As her world falls apart, Nina begins to see the men in her life--her father, her boyfriend, and unexpectedly, her boss, Rafael--in a new light. Soon Nina finds herself caught between the world she loves, and a passion that could upend everything.

More Than Words is a heartbreaking and romantic novel about grief, loss, love, and self-discovery, and how we choose which life we are meant to live.

Booklist Review: "Nina Gregory has always lived her life within the lines, afraid to sully the name brought to prominence by her hotelier grandfather and father. Generally content to follow the path laid out for her by the father she adores, her role as a speechwriter for an unconventional New York City mayoral candidate is the one anomaly of her well-manicured life. Nina knows she is expected to take over her father's hotel business, so he humors her foray into politics. But then her father passes away from cancer, devastating her more than words can say. While grappling with grief, Nina uncovers the secrets her father left behind, devastating her even more. She wonders if she ever even really knew her father. And if she is her father's daughter, does she then even really know herself? The latest from best-selling author Santopolo (The Light We Lost, 2017) is a bittersweet and reflective novel of grief, loss, and coming into one's own. Fans of leisurely paced and character-driven novels will appreciate the time she spends developing Nina's voice and ensuring that it's heard.--LynnDee Wathen Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Santopolo follows 2017's The Light We Lost with a heartfelt story about life, love, and taking chances in the aftermath of loss. Thirty-something hotel heiress Nina Gregory loves her job as speechwriter for New York mayoral candidate Rafael O'Connor-Ruiz, and she loves her boyfriend and lifelong best friend, Tim Calder. But she adores her father, Joseph, and as cancer weakens the once-vibrant man, Nina treasures the time they have left. When Joseph finally succumbs to his illness, the devastated Nina must pick up the pieces and take the reins of the Gregory Corporation. Nina soon discovers that her father, who revered the Gregory legacy and lived life in the spotlight, was hiding secrets about his company and her mother, who died when Nina was a child. A potent-and mutual-attraction to Rafael complicates things further. Nina's self-discovery is bolstered by the strong women in her life, and her struggle to accept her larger than life father as a flawed man will resonate with readers. This is a charming and sexy crowd-pleaser. (Feb.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
