Synopses & Reviews
Scarlet spends most of her time worrying about other people. Some are her friends, others are practically strangers, and then there are the ones no else even notices. Trying to fix their lives comes naturally to her. And pushing her own needs to the side is part of the deal. So when her older sister comes home unexpectedly married and pregnant, Scarlet has a new person to worry about. But all of her good intentions are shattered when the unthinkable happens: she falls for her sisterand#8217;s husband. For the first time in a long time, Scarletand#8217;s not fixing a problem, sheand#8217;s at the center of one. And ignoring her feelings doesnand#8217;t seem to be an option...
Scarlett Hughes is overly involved in the lives of everyone around her and exceptionally interested in the habits of her neighbors: a young goth girl, a forgetful mailman, and an older couple who gets excited by email spam. But Scarlett is thrust solidly into her own life when her sister, Juliet, returns home from school—pregnant and surprisingly married to a sweet, handsome man whom she seems to have no interest in, but who is hopelessly in love with her. Forced to take a look inward for the first time, Scarlett discovers the necessity of dreams, as well as the necessity of facing reality and speaking the truth.
