While her Aunt Annie can't remember where to do the scattering, Meg struggles to keep her brother and sister from killing each other while helping jar Annie's memory, and find a missing poet. Barely holding onto her sanity, Meg meets Daniel. A local horse breeder - too handsome, too sexy, but just the right kind of helpful.
