New York Times Bestselling Scumble River SeriesA nasty faculty feud leaves one Scumble River teacher belly-up. . . .Her honeymoon may have been less than relaxing, but Skye Boyd née Denison is still high on marital bliss with her new husband, Wally. The fact that their family is about to get bigger is even more…
* * *
Delaney believes life is an adventure, but when she receives a lottery ticket for a birthday she’s not having from a father she hasn’t heard from in eighteen years, not even her horoscope can predict the astonishing outcome.
While Delaney’s lively intelligence makes her a great teacher, she uses her sarcastic wit to avoid intimacy, suppressing her deeply passionate nature.
Spencer is responsible, decisive, and in control, but his world was destroyed when he couldn’t stop his wife’s downward spiral into alcohol, drugs, and depravity. When she died in the arms of her lover during a high-speed automobile accident, Spencer lost all faith in his ability to right the wrongs evident all around him. Renouncing his affluent lifestyle, he moves to a small town in Illinois, determined to save his daughter from a life of too many dollars and not enough sense.
How can a man whose guilt makes him believe he doesn’t deserve love and a woman who doesn’t trust men ever find each other? Before they have a chance to try, Delaney wins the lottery and becomes everything Spencer has rejected. With her newfound wealth, Delaney and Spencer can’t agree on anything...except the chemistry between them.

GOOD GIRL OVERBOARD is a wonderful start to a promising series. I loved it and could not help rooting for Darcy to find love with the handsome captain. ...Mishaps, interesting characters, witty banter, ulterior motives, passion, secrets, a shipboard romance and love intertwine to provide readers with an entrancing story that will leave them feeling good. ...exceeded my already high expectations. ... Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of GOOD GIRL OVERBOARD. I am sure you will enjoy it just as much as I did!
