Twelve friends. Ten-year reunion. One $50,000,000 lottery ticket.
Jackie Dunn knows her hometown is in trouble. If the hospital closes, she'll lose her job, and her side business as a caterer won't pay the bills. But when her old crush returns as the town's new doctor, she thinks she and the town might have a real future.
Dr. Doug Little only came home to pay off one last debt from medical school. When he and his former classmates win a fifty-million-dollar lottery jackpot, Doug sees it as his ticket to freedom. He tries to convince Jackie to come with him, but she refuses to give up on their hometown. Doug must make a hard decision when he realizes leaving means losing the real prize he found in Hopewell.
Loved the story. Loved the characters. Loved that you used the word “toque” that I grew up with instead of stocking cap. Loved that you pay attention to proper grammar and choose not to use street language in telling your story. Thank you very much.
