Good Enough by Pamela Gossiaux

Meet Amy Summers, a big-hearted heroine whose simple life gets turned upside down when she finds a winning lottery ticket worth millions...but should she cash it? This laugh-out loud romance will keep you turning pages until the end!

Amy Summers has it all: the world's best job, an awesome boyfriend, and a happily-ever-after in sight. Then, in one very bad day that involves burnt toast and a police arrest, she loses everything – except for a winning lottery ticket her ex left behind.

Afraid to cash it, she decides to give up men and become a Bohemian novelist. She takes her laptop to Starbucks and literally bumps into caffeine-free, easy-going Josh Gray, a life coach and very handsome man. (Not that she's noticing.) When he offers to help Amy get back on her feet, she decides to hire him.

Her heart is telling her that he's the man for her, but Josh is big on honesty and Amy has a huge secret that could push him away if he ever finds out.

Romantic comedy, with twists and turns, some intelligent depths, and a deft hand with coincidence, Pamela Gossiaux’s Good Enough is a good read, with enough good humor to satisfy and please. The protagonist almost has it all, almost loses it all, then, in one brief encounter, gains back everything and more. Being a good person, of good intent, she agonizes over whether or not she can take advantage of this. Then she takes advantage. Then she offers advantages to everyone else. Truly, she is a good and more than good enough person. But there’s still that secret lie. Aiding Amy in her rise to the top is handsome life coach Josh, who also seems more than good enough. Their dialog offers wise advice for all readers aspiring to better their lives. But there’s that intervening factor for protagonist Amy; she’s falling in love. And then there’s the lie. Can good people stay good enough for each other when relationships are built on partial truths? Can those who’ve made mistakes still help others make something of themselves? The resolution is moderately predictable, thoroughly enjoyable, and satisfyingly entertaining. Amy and those she helps prove good enough in spite of it all, and the book is a truly good read—romantic comedy combined with a life-coach’s wisdom! Disclosure: I was given a copy by a publicist and I offer my honest review.

Good Enough by Pamela Gossiaux Book starts out with a writer, Amy heading to work: gets in an accident but other driver was texting, she lost her job, her boyfriend and the engagement ring in his pocket. Nothing goes right but with the last snide remark of him she picks up the lottery ticket that his pregnant girl has dropped. Things just get worse, arrest for trying to get her clothes back... The lottery ticket is the winner, problem is her ex boyfriend might think he owns it so she hides it from everyone... She has a dream of running a magazine with help of a life coach. She gets a building, printing presses and has money to hire others to write a column. And just when you think she's got it all covered she realizes her assistance is the pregnant girlfriend of her ex, except now she has the disabled baby. Her brother has secrets about Josh, her life coach also. Things just don't go much had turned upside down despite all the good she's done. She has the power to make it all happen...if only others will forgive her. Loved this story for the romance, hard work, play time in NYC and just unexpected things. So many twists and turns and NOT predictable by a long shot. Other works by the author are highlighted at the end. Would enjoy reading more of this authors works. Received a copy from the author and this is my honest review.

Has Amy got what it really takes to be good enough? The main character in this very entertaining romantic comedy is Amy Summers a girl who has everything she could wish for, amazing boyfriend, fantastic job. Well, this is how it appeared until the fateful morning when missing her work alarm is just the beginning of a truly horrendous day! So what would you do if your world fell apart? Well, Amy has the perfect solution to help her forget, one which is universally popular, however, like thousands before her she quickly discovers this particular quick fix is not the answer. Looking for inspiration she takes her laptop to Starbucks and fortuitously meets the handsome Josh Gray, a life coach, he, she decides is just the person to turn her life around. Full of excitement and enthusiasm Amy resolves to fulfil a lifelong dream, and with encouragement and coaching from Josh they forge ahead, planning and fulfilling her dream. Amy is smitten with Josh, and he admires her sweet generous nature, everything is looking rosy, but will it go further? To everyone who knows her, Amy is an angel in disguise, happy to help those less fortunate, motivated, and successful. What others do not realise is that Amy is hiding a secret one she is too scared to reveal. Being deceitful is tying her knots, what will Josh, her parents, and others think of her if she reveals the truth, will they forgive her, or judge? Will she be good enough? This story is such a fun read, it is impossible once you have opened it not to be thoroughly captivated by Amy’s escapades. However all the characters are important and very different, this is not your ordinary romance, underneath the surface the plot really develops leading the reader on the incredible journey which is Amy’s life.
