From the author of Bliss comes a heartwarming tale of friendship, romance, self-discovery... and llama drama.
When a close encounter with an eighty-foot spruce steals Merry Manning's dreams of Olympic gold, the former ski champ finds herself falling into a career she never expected the life of a travel writer. Picturing glamorous trips to exotic places, Merry is speechless when her boss assigns her to the blog, "Don't Do What I Did," and sends her to a middle-of-nowhere llama ranch with instructions to "fall on her fanny" as often as possible.
Soon she's eyeball-deep in alpacas, llamas, goats, and all the mess that comes with them. But when the Last Chance Llama Ranch and a certain gruff cowboy start to grow on her, Merry finds that each life might actually be just what she's been missing.
You know what they say: when life gives you llamas....

About the Author
A scion of Manhattan's Upper East Side, Hilary Fields wrote her first romance novel at sixteen, and continued to write women's fiction even as she studied classics and philosophy at St. John's College, a tiny liberal arts college in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In the spirit of cognitive dissonance, she still divides her time between Manhattan and the Land of Enchantment, and enjoys cooking, crocheting, and her obligatory feline companions.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
What a warm hearted, fun book. I found myself laughing out loud and with a tear in my eye while reading this. Hilary Fields deals with real life situations with humor and dignity. I can't wait for her next book.
This second novel by Hilary Fields, following her first success with the delightful "Bliss," is a marvelous second outing and accomplishment: bright, vibrant, heartfelt, charming, deeply compassionate with respect to each of its unique, flawed and nuanced characters, and very, very funny. She has a highly original voice, tripping with equal ease through complex character development and apropos and clever pop cultural references. Merry's journey through loneliness, self-doubt, disappointment, self-discovery and reinvention, and ultimately to love, is moving and sensitively charted. She is a talent to watch.
Fun and also inspiring.
Thoroughly enjoyable read
