Our story, How the Cookie Crumbles is included in The Mysterious Women Bundle curated by Kristine Kathryn Rusch! The story is in the Love Among the Thorns anthology and there is lots of great company in that bundle. Read through the page and you’ll be introduced to some outstanding charities you can choose to support with your purchase. We’re a bit late with the announcement – we’ve been kinda crazy lately for obvious reasons – but you still have more than a week to take advantage of this great deal.
When Lisa joins her roommate for Fall Break at her family lodge in the woods, she expects fall colors, promised cookies, and time to read by the fire. She definitely doesn’t expect her roommate’s handsome older brother Jason giving her a tour of the lake.
Jason loves his family, loves the outdoors, and loves when he can combine the two into one outstanding weekend. Throw in a pretty girl he isn’t related to and it might just be a perfect weekend.
But she’d rather drink hot chocolate in the ski lodge than join him on the slopes. And he’d rather chase interesting opportunities than plan the path to his career. Her perfect man works hard and achieves his goals. And his perfect woman plays as hard as she laughs. How can two people so obviously wrong for each other turn out to be perfectly right?
