Pubblicato in Italia con il titolo Non sai quanto. La storia di una donna che scopre che l’uomo più importante della sua vita non era il fantastico uomo che lei pensava e il suo mondo si ribalta.

Jill Santopolo’s first adult novel, The Light We Lost, left me an emotional wreck (but I loved it), so I was a bit wary when I started reading her new novel. Although at times moving, it was lighter than the first novel and I quite enjoyed it. Nina Gregory had a good life. The daughter of an hotel owner, wealthy, beautiful, smart, she now works as a speechwriter for Rafael O’Connor-Ruiz, the man who might become the next mayor of New York. She has a very close relationship with her father, but the revelation of a secret from the past turns her world upside down and Nina starts to questions everything she believes in.

I liked the character of Nina. She is authentic, relatable, and very engaging. Her life has been straightforward, but things get complicated not only by her father’s revelations, but also by her suddenly complicated love life as she struggles with her love for Tim, her boyfriend, and her feelings for her boss Rafael. Very well-written, beautiful, and captivating, Jill Santopolo is back with another immersive novel.
