The Fortune Cookie
Thirty-three-year-old technical writer Laurence Hart is a modern-day Scrooge when it comes to the holiday season—and the rest of the year too. He doesn’t like most people, they don’t like him, and he’s happy to keep it that way. Over lunch with his best friend, he receives a fortune cookie promising him true love. The next day, forced to work on a holiday charity committee or lose his job, he meets Nick, a jolly ginger giant who loves all things Christmas. Together they face numerous obstacles to put together a holiday fair to raise money for children in foster care in only four days. While Laurence has to mend his curmudgeonly ways to make the event a success, Nick’s holiday magic might mend Laurence’s heart.

Charley Kenner thought he had it all; a good home, an obedient wife, a loving mistress, and a job that had allowed him and his two best friends to embezzle almost $2 million. One Friday afternoon he bought tickets to Mexico for himself, his mistress and his friends; in just four days they would be relaxing on the sands of some beach, sipping cheap drinks and living life without a care in the world. There was, however, one thing he hadn’t counted on … his wife. Jessica Kenner once believed the best day of her life was the day she married Charley. Now she knew it was the day she killed him. Fast paced, fun, and wickedly deviant – Sorry Charley is a force to be reckoned with! Purchase on Amazon
