Sarah Thompson bought a lottery ticket...and won. She didn't expect to win. But now that she has, she makes plans to pay off her bills and do some nice things for her friends and family. When men show up with marriage proposals, Sarah finds herself out of a job and at odds with her friends.
Gavin Bloom ate lunch at Keane's pub every day to see Sarah. He finds his chance to get even closer to her when she faints in the local store, and he's there to break her fall.
Through the highs and lows of instant wealth, Sarah sees there is more to Gavin than his quirky appreciation of pub food. He's determined to find a way for her to see they belong together. She fears the changes in his feelings for her have to do with the glamour of money.
In this sweet romance, unlikely friendships are formed, and hearts are tested. Some will learn too late to hold onto those you love. If Sarah doesn't pay attention, she might be one of them.
Twenty years ago, Merri Maywether went on a date with a very sweet man from Montana. Three weeks later, they were engaged and they have lived happily ever after.
If you are looking for a feel-good, happily ever after, small-town experience, I have a story for you. When I write my romance novels, the characters are inspired by the people I see on a day to day basis. Up here in what I like to call the far, far north, people work hard, live fiercely, and love knowing that they have a community behind them. When I'm not writing, I'm testing out an adventure that will end up in a book or trying a character's favorite recipe.
