Hope has loved Jake for years. However, an 18-year gap in their ages prevented any hope for romance. Now Hope is 21 and she's back home after graduating from college. Excited to see Jake once again and proclaim her love, she receives the shock of a lifetime when she learns the man of her dreams is getting married in two weeks!

Hope's twin, Faith, feels for her sister and decides to help. Her resolve becomes even greater when she realizes Jake's engagement to Amanda is not one based on love. When Jake's brother, Rabb, beings making goo-goo eyes at Faith, maybe she can conspire to get more than one fledgling affair off the ground!

Ms. Johnston pens a wonderfully multi-layered, creative tale with expertly executed plot lines. (Dec., 384 pp., $7.50)
