Description

After four months of unemployment, former book editor Clara Montgomery is still stuck sleeping on her little brother's ugly couch in Queens. Determined to keep her minuscule savings account intact, she takes a job clearing out abandoned storage units, but is in no way prepared for stumbling upon dead snakes or trying to identify exactly where the perpetual stench of beets is emanating from.When Clara comes across a unit that was once owned by an escort service, she finds the brothel "résumé" of a younger Caspian Tiddleswich...an astonishingly famous British actor. Her best friend thinks she should sell the gossip to a tabloid to fund her way off the couch from hell, but Clara instead manages to track down Caspian's contact info, intending to reassure him that her lips are sealed.Unfortunately, Caspian misinterprets Clara's attempt at altruism and shows up on her doorstep, accusing her of blackmail. When the paparazzi capture a photo of them together, Caspian's PR team sees an opportunity to promote his latest film--and if Clara wants to atone for her "crimes," she'll have to play along. Pretending to be Caspian's girlfriend seems like it will be a tolerable, if somewhat daunting, penance...until their fake romance becomes something more than either of them expected.

Review quote

"Chock-full of hysterical one-liners and strings of profanity, the novel will make readers want to slap the protagonist upside the head with a glitter brush in order for her to come to her senses. A delicious summer treat with just enough sass, sex, and edible glitter." -Library Journal"Undoubtedly memorable, hilariously quirky and surprisingly relatable... Get lucky by making this one-of-a-kind novel part of your summer reading list!" -RT Book Reviews, Top Pick!"Lighthearted and entertaining, Summer Heacock's debut, The Awkward Path to Getting Lucky, is full of voice and a cast of characters that are side-splitting funny. Between the shenanigans and drool-worthy cupcake descriptions is a modern day exploration of one woman's quest for happily ever after. -- Karma Brown, bestselling author of Come Away with Me and The Choices We Make"The Awkward Path to Getting Lucky is the Cupcake Wars meets The Bloggess. Readers who love hilarious, bawdy humor with a heaping dose of swoon will adore Summer Heacock's special debut!" -Amy E. Reichert, author of The Coincidence of Coconut Cake and The Simplicity of Cider"Reading The Awkward Path To Getting Lucky is like hanging out with your smartest, funniest, most thoughtful and all-round favorite girlfriend. If you're the kind of intelligent, complicated woman who Leans In at work but watches The Bachelor at home, who does yoga Saturday morning and drinks margaritas Saturday night, who can stand on her own but still wants to be swept off her feet, then this is the comfort read for you." -Gemma Burgess, author of the Brooklyn Girls series
