The festive 1920s in Santa Fe are the setting for this comic romance. After a slip with the scissors has refashioned her bob, the novel's twenty-year-old heroine, Amanda Williams, embraces the mistake, deciding to check into La Fonda to attend the next day's Fiesta disguised as a boy. Soon she is entangled in a net of mistaken identities.
