Let’s welcome the newest Girl of the Year character, Blaire Wilson! Blaire loves taking care of the animals on the Pleasant View Farm Bed & Breakfast (located, in upstate New York) including Dash the goat, Penelope the lamb, and Dandelion the silkie chicken. She also loves to cook all sorts of foods and yummy treats. But her passion turns sour when its discovered she’s lactose intolerant, meaning she is hypersensitive to dairy products.
Luckily, she finds the perfect distraction from her unwanted new diet when Cat, the Farm’s manager, becomes engaged, and Blaire is mistaken for the wedding planner. At first, Blaire is ecstatic to have such an important responsibility, but the hassle of putting a wedding together starts stressing her out and puts a strain on her friendships. Blaire must figure out how to save her relationships with her friends and fix everything before it turns into a recipe for disaster.
