My Year of Living Dangerously
by Danelle Hall

Overview


Mandy Ryan’s To Do List:   Divorce lying, cheating rat bastard husband Roger. Live for a year in a yurt. Write a book about it.

Mandy takes a sabbatical from her position as wife, mother and government documents librarian and goes in search of the real Mandy Ryan. She has a contract to deliver a book length manuscript on living the primitive life for a year in a yurt when she has never written a book, never gone camping, and never lived more than six blocks from a Starbucks.

For optimistic Mandy, not a problem. Except for that plane with no lights. And Hannah’s murderous nephew, Henry.

Mandy would love to become the competent and organized adult she’s always wanted to be. But she keeps forgetting her bottled water and finding moccasin prints around her yurt . . . And then, there’s Sheriff Tom . . .
