Publisher Description

A debut novel about luck and love, and winning a sweepstakes, with a cast of characters who will charm readers from the very first page

The HomeSweetHome Network has just announced this year's lucky winner of a brand-new, fully loaded dream home: Janine Brown of Cedar Falls, Iowa.

For Janine "Janey" Brown, hearing her name called on the TV has the hallmarks of one of her aunt Midge's harebrained plans designed to bring Janey into a world outside the one she once shared with her fiancé. Janey, however, is reluctant to give up the safety and sanctity she finds in her tiny kitchen, submerging her anxiety and grief in the pursuit of the perfect pot-au-feu.

Meanwhile, across town, Janine "Nean" Brown just knows that this house is her destiny. Good fortune took its sweet time showing up in her life, but better late than never. And now that it's here, the house promises an escape from the latest in her revolving door of crappy jobs and drunk boyfriends. This house will turn her into someone the world sees, instead of the bedraggled girl who others look past without a thought.

Both Janine Browns head for Christmas Cove, Maine, to claim the prize they both rightfully think is theirs. When their lives and personalities intersect, however, they discover that more than just a million-dollar dream home awaits them at the water's edge. These three women (oh yes, Aunt Midge comes along for the ride!) arrive at their newfound mansion only to uncover what exactly it means to truly be "home."

Filled with wit and charm, The Good Luck Girls of Shipwreck Lane is Kelly Harms's enchanting and heartfelt debut--a testament to the many, many ways love finds us, the power of a home-cooked meal, and just what it means to be lucky.

Totally unlike any other book I’ve read

Unlike any other, but in a good way. The storyline was inventive. The characters were just that, characters, especially Aunt Midge! Oh how fun it would be if we could all have an Aunt Midge in our lives.
In the beginning, I had some trouble getting engaged with this book. It was a problem with me, not the book. After a short time, I realized that almost in spite of myself, I was involved & invested in this book & its “family”. I think you will be, too.

Good luck will spill over into your life when you pick up this book. There's always someone who life is more wrecked than your own. Salvaging it and moving on, is the secret to hidden treasure as this wacky, witty, novel proves.
