Product description...

Dan Pierce and Joan Schneider are both successful, upper-management employees at Starlingers, with adjacent offices and similar work. And both are unaware of the hell awaiting them during the final few days of the year…

It all starts innocently enough for Joan. She is merely fulfilling a dinner obligation when she is interrupted by an alarmingly cryptic text from her boss. Much the same for Dan. He and his wife, Lizzy, are simply attending the annual Andrews holiday luncheon. What could go wrong? Against the somber backdrop of a sudden tragedy, Dan and Joan are forced to face the precariousness of their employment. Is it their own fault that they may now be standing on the precipice of their careers? Partly, certainly. Completely, certainly not. New Leaves In Winter is a story of manipulation and betrayal…of livelihoods threatened and lives changed, for better or worse, by a dark and hidden backstory of competition, greed, and envy among those who own and control. Is there a clear-cut winner here? Or really no winners at all?
