Author Event - "Too Lucky To Live: A Somebody's Bound to Wind Up Dead Mystery"
Book by Annie Hogsett

Cleveland divorce-survivor Allie Harper needs a nice, smart, hot guy and enough money to get her car fixed. The hot guy arrives first in a crosswalk, clutching a bag of groceries while a blonde in a Hummer is learning hard on her horn, sending the man's groceries and white cane flying. How has this woman missed the fact that the man is blind? Allie jumps to his rescue and the money is in the bag- literally. Thomas Bennington III, the handsome stranger, has bought a MondoMegaJackpot ticket. Allie and Tom grasp two things: one, they're hot for each other, and two, the ticket is a hot target, and now so are they. Books will be available for sale and signing at the event.
