Heady's Neck, a new book by Carl Raines, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Carlo has lived quite the successful life. As a pharmaceutical rep, he seems to be living the perfect life with his nice house, nice car, and ever-growing career. But in his soul, Carlo is disillusioned and disgusted. After formally submitting his resignation, Carlo sells all he has from his past life and takes a job as the lead caretaker for a mountain resort for the wealthy, The Meadows.

Life at The Meadows is exactly what Carlo hopes it would be-full of hard work, meeting new people, becoming one with nature, and maybe even finding love along the way.

Heady's Neck is a novel about love-passionate, romantic love; love of self; love of friendship and family; and finding love within.
