A perfect pairing with a glass of chardonnay and an Adirondack chair. 

Teenage Ellen McCauley wants to escape her demons, namely a step-mother named Helen the Horrible and a reputation as the school klutz. A fall down the stairs, in front of the entire varsity football team…while wearing pink polka-a-dot underwear, earns her the nickname “Klutz-Ellen”. So when outdoor-loving Ellen finds a job as a nature counselor in the Adirondack Mountains, it spells escape. 

But hopes for an idyllic Adirondack summer are shattered when she meets Vicente Rienz, the camp lifeguard, known to friends as Vic. Born to an American mother, but Spanish by birthright of his Mexican father, he is all male, in denim and leather, aloof, arrogant, and very competent at…everything. Ellen hates him on sight until the sparks between them ignite into a passion not to be denied. 

A summer under the stars leads to unforeseen consequences and separation. What began as a teenage romance smolders and erupts into an all-consuming passion when Vic and Ellen reunite years later. Seeking answers to their past, they return to the Adirondacks in a quest that turns dangerous haunted by an old mountain curse for a dramatic conclusion. 

Adirondack Audacity spans the years and travels across the country serving up the titillating flavors of life: romance, mystery, outdoor adventure, and hilarious hijinks. Laugh, cry, and a little bit sexy. Finally the “beach” listen comes to the mountains. So grab a glass of wine, curl up in an Adirondack chair…and indulge! Did someone say…"thirty shades of Balsam"?
