The Start of Chapter One


Kara, one of the co-owners of Larch Rise Resort, stood on the highest balcony, taking in the stunning mountain views. She heard the chatter of voices and the tinkling of laughter coming from below. Her gaze shifted and she noticed the recreation area. Her twin sister, Sara, and a group from the Morgan-Drake Corporation exited a building below dressed in tennis attire. Having completed their last brainstorming session for the day, they headed to the courts for their scheduled game. Later they would go for a swim to cool off. She could almost set her clock by their daily routine.

The refreshing summer breeze gently brushed against the surrounding trees, causing the evergreens to display their deep greens. The golden larch occasionally revealed glimpses of the bright yellows that would come fully in autumn. Kara sighed, her thoughts switching to the upcoming visit of the rest of their family. Conflicting emotions swirled within her as she anticipated their arrival—a mixture of dread and excitement. Maybe Sara wouldn’t hate her too much.
