Luck of the Draw

A.R. Casella, Denise Grover Swank


List Price: 7.99*
* Individual store prices may vary.


Life’s not a fairytale for women like me, divorced and creeping up on middle age…until a hot younger man finds my lost shoes.

Crashing weddings is so not my thing. I’d much rather stay home and watch HGTV . . . and ignore the fact that my life is messier than those fixer-upper houses. Because my jerk ex left, and the only thing keeping a roof over my sons’ heads is my crappy telemarketing job.

But then I get a challenge from the Bad Luck Club, the group I joined to turn my luck around: Do something that breaks the rules. One ill-advised confession to my best friend later, I’m strapping on a pair of heels and crashing the wedding of two of the owners of Buchanan Brewery.

The last thing I expect is to meet someone, let alone the sexy younger bartender who calls me out and finds my lost shoes, something straight out of Cinderella. And the very last thing I expect is to fall for him.

It feels like I’m in a dream come true, a fairy tale, but the crap part about dreams is that they have to end.

Or do they?

Praise For Luck of the Draw

Goodreads reviews:
“I absolutely loved this book. It's a quick read that will draw you back into this amazing world.” --Mona Brown

“I love coming back to Asheville for a visit. This is one of my favorite series. You can read each of these books as a stand alone, but they are so much better together.” --Amy Johnson

“Giggles are of course part of this book along with some fast paced romance. Perfect addition to the series.” --MommaPage

“This series has all the heart and charm readers have come to expect from the Asheville Brewery Series. Dee and Dylan have a chance encounter that is a cross between a fairytale and a rom-com movie. …This funny, sweet novella has just a touch of steaminess and is an easy and heartwarming read.” --Sheremy27

DENISE GROVER SWANK was born in Kansas City, Missouri and lived in the area until she was nineteen. Then she became a nomad, living in five cities, four states and ten houses over the course of ten years before she moved back to her roots. She speaks English and a smattering of Spanish and Chinese, which she learned through an intensive Nick Jr. immersion period. Her hobbies include witty Facebook comments (in her own mind) and dancing in her kitchen with her children. (Quite badly if you believe her offspring.) Hidden talents include the gift of justification and the ability to drink massive amounts of caffeine and still fall asleep within two minutes. Her lack of the sense of smell allows her to perform many unspeakable tasks. She has six children and hasn't lost her sanity. Or so she leads you to believe.
