Newspaper reporter Lilly Hood didn't ask for ADD that's plagued her since childhood. Never mind she can't remember where she puts things, but when she forgets dates with her handsome boyfriend, Hunter Woods, well, that's inexcusable.
Though Hunter has known Lilly from the time she was a scrawny kid scurrying up trees and gallivanting through Alabama forests, will he understand when she doesn't keep her promises? Or will he suspect Lilly's falling for her tall, dark, and handsome co-worker?
Fellow reporter Wolf Skinner has designs on Lilly and would like to take Hunter's place as Lilly's boyfriend. But his reasons are less than honorable. When Lilly gets lost in the forest and must climb a tree to escape a ferocious bear, which of these gentlemen will be her hero?
Red and the Wolf is a modern day retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. Sometimes red heads attract more than Wolves.

A sweet tale! "Red And The Wolf" is a modern-day rendition of the classic children's fairytale, Little Red Riding Hood, Red is a newspaper reporter who suffers from ADD, and can't keep her life under control while her coworker, Wolf Skinner, seeks her companionship in order to advance his social status. Hunter Woods is Red's childhood friend who's looking for more than just her friendship. The settings are very well described, making it a picturesque story, but character development was a bit shallow. I've read the author's Bellewood Series books which are rich in detail and told with depth of character. This novella is a cute rendition of a children's fairytale, but a bit simplified compared to June Foster's other works. I would recommend this to teen readers as a great transitional book from children's books into young adult novels. There are some unexpected events that pick up the plot, and this is a sweet afternoon or evening read with a cup of your favorite beverage. The spiritual message is a bonus to this tale.
