Smart Vs. Pretty
Publisher: Avon A | Pages: 304 | 2000-02-01 | ISBN 0380805421 | PDF | 1 MB
Out-of-work urban professional Francesca Greenfield has always known that she was the "smart" sister. Amanda was the soft and lovely one who, from the beginning, had always garnered most of the attention -- and all the dates. Now they've been thrown together in a last-ditch effort to save the family coffeehouse business before it goes permanently down the drain.
In the chaotic misdt of mad promotional schemes and piranhalike next-door competitors, the sisters Greenfield are going to have to put aside their hard-faught sibling rivalry -- and quick! -- for the family good.
What happens when a single woman in her early thirties gets stuck living and working with her sister again along with all the insecurities of sibling rivalry?
"From where I stood now, fifteen years out of high school, I knew that smart was more valuable than pretty.For one thing, pretty is available to anyone who has the time, energy, money, and will. And even without exercise or makeup, I considered myself to be serviceably attractive. I elicit a grunt from workmen. Baggers at the supermarket, however, called me ma'am."
