Ditching the Dream

Book 1, The Dream Series - Dream Series, Book 1

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


With her three kids away at college and her husband more married to his job than to her, Elizabeth Fairchild feels lost and without purpose or passion. Impulsively, she leaves her husband a letter and leaves their home in Napa California and heads to New York City to discover herself.

When Elizabeth's husband, Greg gives her a "hall pass" to 'sow her wild oats.' at first, she's livid! She certainly didn't leave her husband to find another man, but Elizabeth soon finds herself involved with two: Jack Stevens and Kevin Parker.
Jack is older. He has heart-stopping good looks, is wildly successful, and is very much in control of everything around him - especially Elizabeth. Kevin is younger. He is carefree with a heart of gold and loves Elizabeth's moxie.

While Elizabeth's old life still calls to her, she also finds what she needs in New York. But which dream will she choose?

WARNING: This book contains subject material of an adult nature intended for readers over the age of 18. Author's Note: I wrote this book as a dare and intended it to be a standalone. It was written with an "ambiguous" ending. I expected to get raked over the coals for this story, but readers wanted more. They wanted to know more about Jack Stevens, they wanted to know what happened afterward... So, then I wrote a book about Jack Stevens (Not In My Wildest Dreams, Book 2 in the Dream Series). Various characters continued to come to life in my head, and before I knew it, I had a 6 book series, each featuring different characters.
Enjoy Book 1.
Thank you.

Ditching the Dream by Isabelle Peterson

What an amazing story. I have been angry with Elizabeth, but also fell as if I understand her feelings at the same time. Kevin is so kind and understanding, Jack is so brooding and likeable at the same time, and Greg is stuffy but there is so much history. I love how Peterson made this book to where you can FEEL Elizabeth’s confusion yourself. (I’m team Jack, by the way!) I can’t wait to see what happens next!
