When Fate Meets Luck




Sophie Winston blogs 
for the Domestic Diva Mysteries 
by Krista Davis 

Have you ever noticed how life sometimes throws you a curve and a solution at the same time? I was planning to take a break. After all, I had been working nonstop for four weeks. But then my ex-husband, who is cuter than he really ought to be, asked if I would ghostwrite a cookbook!

Now let's be honest. I have never done that and I know nothing about it. I told him so and pretty much blew him off. But wouldn't you just know, when I went home and took a shower, tiles fell off the wall! My bathrooms have been in dire need of a renovation for years. They were usable but not pretty. I have to admit, though, that I've been eyeing pretty bathrooms and dreaming about them for years. Who ever thought green and black tiles would be a good color combination anyway?

Tilly Stratford, whom you might remember as the daughter in the TV show American Girl is offering to pay a pretty penny for a ghostwriter to finish her cookbook. Enough pretty pennies to pay for a nice chunk of bathroom renovation cost. Maybe I should reconsider. How bad could it be? 

What do you think?
