    I wanted to try this author after her last novel was highlighted by Reese Witherspoon. It's solidly in women's fiction bordering on romance. Nina works in politics but is destined to take over the family business, a lucrative hospitality corporation in NYC. As her father approaches ...

    I had a difficult time drumming up the slightest bit of sympathy for this novel's main character, Nina Gregory. Must be terrible having two men in love with you. My heart bleeds. Personal envy aside, the real story didn't begin until nearly halfway through the book. It was at that po...

    I was the biggest fan of Santopolo?s The Light We Lost, it was a story which had me thinking about it for days after and Santopolo?s world building was majestically done. So, when I first heard about More than Words, I dived right in, going into books with the least amount of impre...

    I gave More than Words by Jill Santopolo 3 Stars but it?s really more a 2.5 star book. Here?s the problem with More than Words: no conflict. All books have to lead to a conflict then resolution. Without the conflict, all you have is a narrative that isn?t very interesting. That?...

    After loving The Light We Lost, maybe I held this book to too high an expectation but it was just a solid meh from me. Not that it wasn't enjoyable, but it wasn't believable, the characters weren't likeable, and above everything there wasn't anything pivotal that happened that made me ...
