Winner winner chicken dinner, and that's how the love story of Sarah and Gavin begins.
Sarah needs the money to buy out her brother's half of the house. He's moved on, but she likes the comfort of living where she was raised. Sarah has been working extra shifts at Keane's pub, and at the rate she is working, she'd easily have the money and full ownership of the house in six months.
Within a day, her life falls apart. Her brother wants to sell the house, and she finds out that her boyfriend is spending his free time with another woman. Could it get any worse? Sarah buys a lottery ticket on the off chance she'll win the shortfall and be able to buy the house free and clear.
Gavin has been eating at Sarah's table every day for years. He knows she's dating someone, so he knows better than to make his feelings known. He finds his chance to get even closer to her when she finds out she won the lottery and faints in the local store. It has to be a sign that things between them are about to change when he catches her to break the fall. Sarah needs someone to help her with her newfound wealth. Who better than Gavin? He's a business attorney.
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.
About the Author
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.
This is Merri taking over the biography section...When I write my romance novels, the characters are the people that 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 of people behind them. We support each other through the hardships and celebrate the victories.
The best part...similar to the characters in my stories, at the end of a long day or a rough week we have stories to share for the years to come.
