With Paula Prendes Martinez & Yon Gonzalez Luna
Every room has its secrets: “I hate only two things more than unpunctuality: mistakes and lies.” Are these the last words heard by Cristina, the head chamber-maid at the Grand Hotel, before her disappearance? What makes these words so explosive is the fact that they were spoken by Señora Alarcón, the owner of the luxurious Grand Hotel. Determined to learn the truth about Cristina’s mysterious disappearance, her bold but irresistibly charming brother Julio infiltrates the hotel in the guise of a footman and begins a life-threatening investigation. It will take him clear across the social strata, uncover shocking truths, and open some doors that were meant to be shut forever. Most of all, Julio’s quest will lead him into the arms of Alicia Alarcón, the owner’s ravishingly beautiful eldest daughter, an independent-minded young woman who is forced to marry the ambitious, calculating hotel manager for the sake of the family business.
