I am considering a handful of titles for my in-progress fiction novel. Your input is valued! Please vote or suggest your own title!
The story is about an Orange County (Southern California) based family. Beginning the day after the mother’s funeral, the first scene occurs the family’s car dealership in Capistrano Beach. The father, Mike Hayden, has spent his life trying to make up for his own father’s mistakes, pouring his heart and countless hours into building the family business–without much success. For years, he looked forward to his oldest child, Liam, joining him. At age 25, Liam has made it abundantly clear he wants nothing to do with the dealership. Liam would rather go to culinary school and plan lavish parties, leaving Mike heart-broken. His young daughter Treva, on the other hand, is doing everything she can just to get a foot in the door. Mike knows his business hasn’t amounted to much, and tries to thwart her interest and involvement, but Treva has never taken ’no’ for an answer. She knows she can turn the business around, but more importantly, she wants to finally earn her father’s attention and admiration.
