Laney (リア, Lia) is an eligible marriage candidate in Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns.

She is one of the villagers living in Bluebell Village. She helps her father Howard at his cafe. She loves her father and claims that he's the best cook around. She loves to bake, specifically cakes and other sweets for her father's store. She's incredibly cheerful and friendly if you stop by and say hello to her. She is good friends with Georgia and Cam.

For marriage, you will need to befriend her father Howard as well as Cam, so stop by the Cafe often! Laney is very easy to find, as she is often helping her father at the Cafe.

On a Thursday between 11am and 4pm speak to Laney. This time, she offers to give you a slice of her homemade cheesecake. She wants to sell it at the cafe, but wants somebody to try it first. 

  • Thanks, I will! (+3000FP)

Laney will ask what you think. The cheesecake is delicious! Laney is slightly embarrassed, but thanks you. Although she loves to bake, she admits that seeing others get so happy eating her food is really what she loves most. She will let you know if she has anything else for you to taste test!

  • Option 1 - At first, but not now. (+3000FP)

Laney will feel a little bit relieved. She eventually wants to sell baked goods to people in different cities, but isn't sure that she could ever bring herself to leave Bluebell. She thanks you for helping her feel better.

  • Option 2 - Yeah. Terribly sad. (-2000FP)

This will make Laney upset. She thinks that it would also be difficult if she ever had to move too.

Laney offered to help her dad at the cafe on her day off and Howard is wondering where she is. Laney was out for a walk and forgot all about it. You offer to help Laney and the two of you go back to the cafe.

Back at the cafe, Howard comments on the fact that you were spending time with Laney! She explains that you've volunteered to help her work at the cafe today. Howard agrees to let you help. After working, Howard thanks you for your help and Laney thanks you too! She asks you how you're feeling.

She once again thanks you for your help. Howard suggests that you should leave your farm to come and work at the cafe full time as Laney's husband!

  • Option 2 - I'm too tired to move (-3000FP)

She is surprised that you find this work difficult after all the farming work that you do. She still thanks you for your help though, however.
