Dueling titles

I feel like Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet was such a big seller that using such a similar title is confusing.  I'm sure the powers-that-be said one is YA the other Adult, so it doesn't matter. Still it's like calling a book Gone with the Windmills.

Plus HOTEL has a lot of Adult to YA crossover appeal and is on HS reading lists.
It's one thing if two books called Life After Life come out at the same time, but clearly there was ample time between the two books for them to know and the publisher still went ahead.
