Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Cobo's sweet debut novel is the story of two women-a mother and daughter-and the love affairs that irrevocably changed their lives. Gabriella, 21, is a piano prodigy raised by her wealthy grandmother in Colombia and her movie producer father in Los Angeles. Her mother, Helena, was a renowned photographer who died when Gabriella was four. When she attends a party in the Hollywood Hills, Gabriella meets Angel, the man of her dreams. There's one catch: he's a mobster. As Gabriella tries to reconcile her conflicted feelings toward Angel, she discovers her mother's diary. Soon she is drawn into Helena's secret life, one that involved a passionate love affair. Betrayed and confused, Gabriela tries to find her mother's lover. But when her own romance begins to spiral out of control, Gabriella must come to terms with the fact that she's very much her mother's daughter. Cobo's well-drawn characters help bolster the story when Gabriella's tragic romance occasionally slides into melodrama. The smooth prose and authentic Colombian settings provide a unique spin to familiar territory. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
