Synopsis of The Wooded Path (Book One in Lake to Coast Series) by Nancy LiPetri
The disappearance of a woman on Lake Norman, North Carolina, shakes a close-knit community, leading friends to question their own paths in life. Laine McClelland’s seemingly perfect world is suddenly filled with dark thoughts, dangerous temptations and surprising confessions. What is normal once you realize life’s short, anyway?

A provocative, often edgy, read about women you feel you know, set on the popular lake that colors the mood with its changing seasons.
Name of character to be interviewed:
Why was this character chosen for this interview?
Because she is a layered main character many readers say they relate to, and some say they judge differently from the beginning of the story to the middle and then the end.
Question 1: Who is your best friend, Laine?
Answer: Hmm, let me think. You mean aside from my husband, Brian? Oh, of course. I have many gal pals, I guess you’d say, like all of them in the bunco group. And I like to go for coffee with my workout friend from the Y. But if I have to admit one very best friend, right now it’s my online confidant, Kat. That might sound funny since we’ve never met in person. But we really bonded. Yes, I can tell her anything, she’s so open-minded. She doesn’t judge me.
Question 2: What do you like to do for a hobby?
Answer: My newest thing I’m trying is SUP, stand-up paddle boarding. It’s a great way to experience the lake without a motor–lets you get up close to the herons and glide right over gar fish. My favorite hobby, though, is still riding Rooster, my gelding.
Question 3: Do you work?
Answer: I’m a freelance copywriter, working from my home writing catalog ads. I get to play with all sorts of products. It’s a great gig because I can make my own hours, take breaks to go work out or meet someone or whatever.
Question 4: And you live where?
Answer: On Lake Norman in central North Carolina. Love it there. We have a boat and a dock at our backyard, my husband our teenage son, Blair, and I. It’s a gorgeous area with lots of trees. I have bird feeders and see so many kinds of amazing birds right there in our yard, including owls and woodpeckers. The deer like to eat the bird seed, too.
Question 5: Anything else you want people to know about you?
Answer: I want them to know my name is pronounced like Lane. Thank my mother for adding an “i” because she didn’t want my name to be exactly like Penny Lane even though she named my older sister Penny AND was a fan of the Beatles song…. I also want people to know I haven’t been feeling like myself lately, been pretty rattled with our friend missing and all that…
