Sometimes to find your life's true path, you have to stray outside the lines . . .

Scarlet Santana is never happier than when creating fabulous fashions for women of all shapes and sizes. Now, after years of hard work, she finally has the chance to live her dream and study under the hottest designer in New York. To raise money for her move, Scarlet opens an after-hours sewing school in a local record shop, teaching a type-A working mom whose rigid parenting style is causing her family to unravel and an enigmatic seamstress with a mysterious past.

But as stitches give way to secrets and classmates become friends, the women realize an important truth: There is no single pattern for a good life. Happiness is always a custom fit.

Baker & Taylor
When she is offered a position with Johnny "Scissors" Tijeras, a hot young designer in New York, Scarlet opens an after-hours freeform-sewing school, attracting a surprising mix of students, including a woman office manager with marriage problems and an elderly woman with a secret past.

What a wonderful read! This light-hearted yet inspirational story will certainly brighten your day. I loved Scarlet's personality, Rosa's compassion, Mary Theresa's determination and Marco's heart. I just wished Scarlet's website actually existed so I could see her beautiful handicrafts as well as receive her daily words of wisdom.
