A story about following your heart and finding your destiny.
A superstitious fortune cookie collector finds love and adventure in Washington, DC.

MY LUCKY GROOM
Follow your fate... It might just lead to the romance of a lifetime!

Superstitious fortune cookie collector Ventura Hart has embarked on a new adventure in Washington, DC. Armed with a masters degree in writing, she has ambitions of working for a major news publication. But the job market is tight, and after a while Ventura realizes she can't be that picky. When she meets a handsome young bachelor in need of a nanny, she thinks she's found a temporary solution. Little does Ventura know, she's headed down a new path that will lead to more than she's ever hoped for.

Single dad Richard Blake is at his wits' end trying to secure help for his mischievous five-year-old twins. Known as DC's most eligible bachelor, the entrepreneurial magazine editor never imagines he'll fall for the one woman he's sure he can't have. She looks after his kids and has a boyfriend to boot. So his attraction to her is beside the point. But when Ventura becomes enmeshed in his family and Richard finds himself losing his heart, is there a way to secure a happy ending? It could all depend on a little bit of luck, and a whole lot of destiny.

A sweet, traditional PG-rated romantic comedy.
Standard novella-length, approximately 30,000 words.

    ~My review~ By Anarodfranco Once I started reading My Lucky Groo

    ~My review~
    By Anarodfranco
    Once I started reading My Lucky Groom by author Ginny Baird, it was nearly impossible for me to put it down and stop reading.
    This book is a short story in Ginny's Summer Grooms Series.( Book #2)
    Back to my review. Ventura finds herself in Washington, DC. for an opportunity in finding a job in journalism because she has a master's degree in journalism. Leaving from home for the first time and feeling overwhelmed being on her own,Ventura felt a bit scared.
    Being new to Washington and now sitting in a café were she was serviced by a waitress named Mary.
    A clumsy accident in front of her taking place. Ventura hears a mans voice.
    “I’m sorry! Are you all right?”, he asked.
    Ventura nods her head completely taken off guard watching.
    I found this scene a bit funny as I read it, I was laughing out loud as Mary the waitress shooed the man away from Ventura. Mary was being protective of Ventura. Girls have to stick together. Every character had a unique playing role in this story, that came perfectly.
    The character I loved the most was Mary in this story. Mary was like Ventura’s savor taking her in and give her a place to live. I found Mary supporting role in guiding Ventura in any way needed.
    Richard Blake a single father and a handsome bachelor in need of a nanny for his kids. Jason the assistant to Richard Blake.
    Richard was very grateful to have Jason as an assistant and friend.
    Jason would pick up some nanny duties in addition to his demanding job.
    To me Ventura seemed a bit naive to the new world in Washington.
    Her parents broken marriage pushed her on her new journey adventure in a new city, without a job.
    Ventura had a job interview. As she looked at the map she had in her hand she knew she was lost. Ventura was not going to make her interview on time or at all.
    “Need help?” a man’s voice asked.
    “Richard!”
    “So where you headed?”
    “I have an interview on K Street.”
    I found it funny on how Richard slipped in and told her he had an job opening at home.
    Richard explained to Ventura he needed a nanny for his kids.
    Ventura turned him down on his job offer.
    After having no luck with any job at all Ventura swallows her pride and calls Richard for an interview.
    Richard hires Ventura as his new nanny for his five year old twins, Ricky and Elisa.
    Ventura’s adventure starts after that in her new nanny job.
    Soon she learns Richard’s kids are no angels. Since it’s a short story I don’t want to give it away.
    But just let me say that the attraction with Ventura and Richard blooms fully unto a great story.
    It’s not every day that I come across a story that I absolutely can’t stop reading.
    Having twins of my own as I read, I found myself smiling throughout the story and Ventura's adventures.I think Ginny Baird did great in writing out each character in this book.
    While reading this story , I enjoyed on how real the story seemed.
    Ventura’s fate was Richard and the love that blossomed was their fate. I finished reading this book with a smile on my face.
    I recommend this book for any one up for a great love story.
    You'll be happy you did. I was.
