A Very Moodici Engagement

You might recall that, a while ago, Holly seemed a bit lonely:

Her mother wants her to get married.  Her father wants her to get married.  And then she painted this:

Okay, we get the idea, Holly.  Let’s find you someone.  I opened up her friends panel and just went down the list till we found someone eligible.  Prestige isn’t all that matters, no matter what Vita and Nick might want for their dynasty.  In any case, prestige isn’t really what you get from a peasant farming town like Riverview.  There are some nice farms here.  Why don’t you visit one?

Maximus McDermott is one of Holly’s best friends.  Having split up from his terrible girlfriend at our suggestion recently, he’s single.  He’s the first son of one of the premier farming families in Riverview.  Why not him?  (A plus is that he has a Latin word for a name!  That would fit in with our Italian theme!  Yes, we are petty!)

His mom Ginny seems to like her so far:

The key lime pie that Holly brought with her blends right in with the decor:

So much green.  Just not of the sort that Nick and Vita like so much.

“But I could live with this.”

You sure, Holly?  Sure the wallpaper isn’t a bit too much like something out of the Shining?

Take a closer look, Holly.  Really scrutinize this before you rush in:

And make sure Max is aware of and prepared for the politics in this family:

And don’t fall for every little bit of flattery:

And check out his reputation in town:

Town gossipers: “Look at that piece of trailer trash that just arrived!  The nerve!”

Holly: “He’s not trash!  Delete that trash talk!  I’ve made up my mind.”

Okay, here goes.  Holly rests her knee on the red cobblestone of the front courtyard.
