Book One in The Maple Leaf Series:

Lily Hinsdale spends her California days designing extravagant hotels for Utopia Resorts. Her nights are filled with the glitz and glamour of upscale parties. Until her grandmother dies and leaves Lily property in wretched Vermont. The woods mean only one thing to Lily-nightmares. When Utopia wants the land for development, Lily is forced to travel to a place she'd rather forget.

Rick Stannard makes maple syrup and builds barns in the peace and quiet of picturesque Vermont. Noisy New York City nearly killed him a few years back, and now he lives a calm, simple life with his coyote, Poe, and his beloved book collection. It's the only way he's guaranteed to wake up each morning.

When Lily marches her expensive boots onto Rick's land and proposes turning it into a mega resort, the serenity of the woods is shattered. Lily always closes a deal. Rick never intends to sell. They'll need to compromise, or someone else will do it for them. Someone who is not afraid of the woods or the city.

Or spilling a little blood.

Christine DePetrillo tried not being a writer. She attempted to ignore the voices in her head, but they would not stop. The only way she could achieve peace and quiet was to write the stories the voices demanded. Today, she writes tales meant to make you laugh, maybe make you sweat, and definitely make you believe in the power of love.

She lives in Rhode Island and occasionally Vermont with her husband, two cats, and a big, black German Shepherd who fiercely defends her against all evils.

I understand we're supposed to not like Lily in the beginning, but the author pushed it to far. Page 31 and I quit. Lily is childish, self-important, weak, and completely unrealstic. Nobody could make it as far as she supposedly did in business and treat people like the way she treated Rick. Thanks for the free book but no thanks.
