Scarlett Fever (Scarlett, #2)

Pages: 352
My rating: B+
Ever since Mrs. Amberson, the former-aspiring-actress-turned-agent, entered Scarlett Martin’s life, nothing has been the same.
She’s still in charge of the Empire Suite in her family’s hotel, but she’s now also Mrs. Amberson’s assistant, running around town for her star client, Chelsea – a Broadway star Scarlett’s age with a knack for making her feel insignificant.
Scarlett’s also trying to juggle sophomore year classes, her lab partner who is being just a little TOO nice, and getting over the boy who broke her heart.
In the midst of all this, her parents drop a bombshell that threatens to change her New York life forever…
I really enjoyed Suite Scarlett for so many reasons, but I didn’t feel as much love for the sequal, Scarlett Fever. The characters are once again great, and there are some interesting character additions that had me laughing. The relationship between Scarlett and her older brother, Spencer, which I loved in the first novel was lacking in this book. I felt like the plot wasn’t nearly as engaging as the first novel. I hate to keep comparing the two, but I’m not really sure how not to.
Overall, this is still a really fun, quick read. If you’re wanting more of Scarlett and her adventures at the Hopewell, you’ll definitely be rewarded.
