Madcap Masquerade: A Novel
Santa Fe Fiesta in its early years was one, large, neighborhood party. As one resident recalled, “half the fun was milling around, running into people you knew … and you were dressed up: you know once you’re in a costume you’re in a different frame of mind.” Madcap Masquerade—a light, comic romance—takes place in the 1920s during Santa Fe’s non-stop party, where 20-year-old Amanda Williams transforms a slip of the scissors into the perfect opportunity to discover her core self … along with more insights than she ever bargained for.
