Ask Kennedi Mason and she’ll say she and her husband, Blake, have a good marriage. That’s why she can’t wait to tell Blake the fabulous news—that something he’s always wanted has finally happened. But when Blake arrives home that evening, he has an announcement of his own, one that shocks Kennedi into silence.

A poignant and witty story of hope and perception, expectation and illusion, One in a Million beautifully shows us that sometimes what we think we have and what we think we want aren’t real at all.

    " This book was really good. It is a novella so it was only about 150 pages BUT all 150 of them were wonderful.She has a flowing writing style that makes the story very easy to read. She managed to insert a surprising amount of character development into this novella. It has a little bit of romance, but it's more about friendship and family. It is packed with fun drama from beginning to end and I definitely recommend it. It's a nice easy read that you won't regret. I am definitely reading other books written by this author. "

    " This is a book for anyone who has ever married or dated a lying, cheating no good man and you see him again when you are sitting on top of the world. This the chance for every woman who has that moment to say, "How You Like Me Now" to that lying cheating man when Mr. Wonderful comes into your life and make everything ALRIGHT. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ibyl | 1/27/2014

    " This was a quick drama filled novelette. Read I enjoyed it! I give it a 3.5 rating. The ending was surprising and seemed a little far fetched to me. The book got me to thinking about what I would do in this situation. It was so true to how people change and act towards you when money is involved. Money and family and friends do not mix. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jarell | 1/16/2014

    " This is an amazing book. I really loved the characters. You couldn't put the book down because it kept getting better and better. She really was a survivor. I give this book a 5/5. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martine | 1/12/2014

    " This was a nice quick read!! If you didn't believe in praying really hard for God to work out a situation, this book would make u consider giving it a try. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Loujean | 1/11/2014

    " I read this book in one day. I couldn't put it down. It's an easy book to read. I totally enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pearl | 1/11/2014

    " This wasn't one of her best, however it is a good read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jeanette | 12/25/2013

    " While the story description sounds interesting, the execution is awful. Despite my OC tendencies about finishing books I've started, I believe it would actually be more painful to keep reading than to stop, so I have. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Latrel | 12/11/2013

    " Not a great read but a quick read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kara | 11/29/2013

    " Quickest. Read. Ever. Predictable and bleh. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Clare | 11/6/2013

    " Okay, so it's a feel good story, but I found the characters too one-sided for my taste. The good guys were really good and the bad guys were loathsome. A little more dimension to the characters would have made a more enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Audrey | 9/19/2013

    " Lesson learned from reading this book.....If somebody tells you "I have something to tell you" and you have something to tell them to.....Always let them go first! LOL "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chrystal | 10/5/2012

    " I wish the author would have continued the story a little further, but maybe there will be a part two? Overall, it was a good book and thoroughly enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joy | 8/15/2012

    " This is a fantastic "What would you do if you won the lottery, but your husband is leaving you before you tell him" book! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Laura | 4/1/2012

    " The writing was a little bit painful and there was no point to the story. Some characters were introduced for no reason at all -- we met their family and got their backstory, and then never saw them again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kas | 2/10/2012

    " A QUICK READ. I LIKED IT ALOT!!! "

    " Terrible, terrible writing. I can't understand how this book got on any bestseller list. I seriously could have written something better than this in high school. And I am NO writer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cammy Diep | 2/2/2011

    " I like this author very much. Love the story line. I also like that most of her book is fast-paced, and you can always expect a lot of drama in her book which keep you stay tuned to the story. I don't like drama in real life...I just like to read it in book. In summary it was a good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mishychel | 12/11/2010

    " It's the million dollar question; what would you do if you won the lottery? Before you can tell your husband the good news, he tells you he's leaving you. What would you do? I enjoyed reading this book!!! "
