Maddie Chilton, the reigning queen of Miami's hottest PR firm, has been dethroned. Now she's roughing it at a fishing camp on a lake in the middle of rural Maine.

I found this book totally delightful. Maddie has lost her job at Miami's hottest PR firm. Her co-workers thought it would be great to send her on a trip to get away.

Very out of place, Maddie's adventures are comical, and after a few days realizes that maybe this place has more to offer than she originally thought. The host of characters are likable, not so likable, and she ends up finding the catch of ...more

Great little read about fishing in northwestern Maine. I have been fishing with the author, so enjoyed reading her tale and imagining who her characters were based upon.
