(actual edition listened from Playaway digital audio)

A trying father-daughter story. Father, Hugues, left by wife for a rock star. He gets custody of their daughter, Heloise. He owns and manages a prestigious hotel and Heloise grows up in that life. No surprise she wants to follow in her father's footsteps ..even though it wasn't what Hugues would have wanted for her. Overall the story was about growth for the both of them as individuals.

Character wise, with the exception of Hugues' delay in telling Heloise about Natalie, Hugues seems to be too perfect! He had all the answers regarding hotel and life. And Heloise, well, she was down right a spoiled brat when it came to finding out her father's personal affairs. These qualities I found to be a flaw so it made for a stirring (not the touching kind) read for me.

By the way, Fred Stella did a wonderful job narrating this book. :)
