Forever Yours Post featuring author Laurie Winter

Winner Takes All by Laurie Winter

Storm Thompson wants to be anywhere but Liberty Ridge.
Especially since his hometown also contains his childhood nemesis,
Colleen Gardner. With a young daughter and mentally ill mother to care
for, he struggles to simply make ends meet. Every day, his goal of
owning an organic farm slips further out of reach.

Psychiatrist Colleen Gardner has her sights set on
starting a retreat to help veterans suffering from PTSD. She's done
well but her small town fundraisers just aren't enough.

"The Great American Scavenger Hunt" TV show offers a
million-dollar prize, and Colleen and Storm are selected as
competitors. Both resolve to do whatever is needed to win, even using
the other to get ahead. Storm and Colleen compete to fund their
dreams, but their already tattered relationship becomes more strained.
Only one will win the money. But will love prove the ultimate prize?

Great American Scavenger Hunt

Day 1
Storm stood 
on the stairs of the US Capitol Building, and the weight of his travel 
pack dug into his shoulders. Before sunrise, all the contestants were 
bussed seven miles over from their hotel in Arlington. A few other 
contestants started conversations, and his minimal replies made clear 
he wasn’t here to make friends. Colleen ignored him, which was good. 
Her mere presence provided enough distraction.

He had a 
good view of her down at the other end of the line. How could she 
stand upright underneath the weight of her pack? The thing looked as 
heavy as her. He’d bought his at the secondhand shop in Liberty Ridge. 
Colleen probably shopped at a high-end outdoor store that carried the 
latest gizmos and gadgets. Her pack and its contents might cost the 
equivalent of a small country’s GDP.

When he’d 
seen her yesterday at lunch, he almost didn’t recognize her. Her short 
hair looked amazingly sexy. This morning, she wore a tousled look, 
like she’d just rolled out of bed, which she likely had being that the 
clock just struck seven-thirty am.

The host of 
the show, Burt Blackstone, walked before the assembled group. He stood 
medium height, with a trim build, and a head of closely cropped, 
salt-and-pepper hair. Today, Burt wore khaki shorts and an orange 
button-up top. “I want to wish every one of you good luck. We’ll start 
filming shortly. I’ll go over the rules once more, mostly for the 
audience’s sake. Then, I’ll give the signal, and you’ll be off.”

A low 
murmur drifted over the group.

shifted the weight of his travel pack and mentally walked through his 
plan. He held a red envelope, which was identical to the ones given to 
the other contestants. Let’s rock and roll.

"The journey they take physically and emotionally is one
that sucked me and wouldn't let go until the book was done. Thank you
for writing such a wonderful book!" Goodreads review
