Lessons for Broke Georgia

You need more than money to pay off your debts. You need…lessons? Money problems are the norm for Georgia Alfonso. She’s hit a new low after her unfaithful fiancé racked up her credit cards, dumped her, and left the country. With the help of Charlie, a successful (and sexy!) investor, Georgia explores wacky, unconventional ways to make extra money to pay off the debt. As she becomes more financially savvy and gains the confidence to date again, she unexpectedly finds herself caught in the middle of a money feud between the Bakers—a dangerous family—and her mother, who’s taken off without a word. Her real problems start with a threat. Then her cat disappears. While still trying to keep up with her debt payments, Georgia’s search for her mother sends her down a trail of shocking secrets surrounding her broken family’s past. As she gets closer to the truth behind her mother’s relationship to the Bakers, they become increasingly hostile. Charlie’s getting skittish at all this drama, and Georgia fears her family problems will ruin her shot at true love. Can Georgia find her mother soon—before the Bakers follow through with their promises to harm her and her loved ones…and ruin her whole life? Lessons for Broke Georgia is a hilarious, raunchy tale that boldly confronts the uncomfortable topic of personal debt and explores how our issues on love, family, and self-worth can determine whether we financially thrive—or flounder.

Making Lemonade

“A woman gets a chance to start over in this romantic novel… centering on wish fulfillment.” –KIRKUS REVIEWS

On her 50th birthday, Missouri Rothman did not get the Tahiti vacation she dreamed of or the surprise birthday party she expected. Instead, a university student totaled her car, her boss – after 16 years of loyal and excellent service – gave her a letter of termination, and her professor husband of 32 years asked for a divorce so he could marry his post-doc student with the 18-inch waist and perky boobs. Half a century old, jobless, and with only a high school diploma, Missouri must take the lemons that life has thrown her and make the best lemonade ever – even if it means traveling to Italy alone to do it.
