What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?
Thirty-year-old Emily Compton already knows the answer to that question. In fact, she has for years. The only problem is that she’s never been able to actually bring herself to act on the dreams she keeps bottled up inside. Cautious, logical, and intimidated by the risk of the unknown, the medical journal editor has always taken the safe route – until now, when she breaks open a fortune cookie and a burst of inspiration comes from the most unlikely source. How much faith should she put in her fortune? For the first time, she’s determined to push aside her inhibitions and find out. Changing her entire life based on a little slip of paper nestled inside a cookie might seem absolutely ridiculous … but is it?
With a Little Bit of Luck is a story of persistence in the face of obstacles, determination in the face of uncertainty, and, most importantly, faith in the face of failure. For Emily, impulsive isn’t what she does. It’s not who she is – or at least, it’s not who she thought she was. But when she quits her job to pursue a career as a published author, everything she’s always believed in is turned upside down in the best possible way. Imbued with a sense of freedom she hasn’t felt in ages and thrilled by her rekindled relationship with the ex-boyfriend whom she’s falling for all over again, Emily’s on top of the world. That is, until serendipity throws her a few curve balls she never quite expected. Increasing financial troubles, an ongoing rift with her parents, and the sudden reappearance of the man who’s been her most prevalent ‘what if’ for a decade all lead her back to one question: could following her fortune have been the biggest failure of all?
