The Ship Has Sunk by Michelle Graves The Misadventures of Maggie Moore Publication Date: December 23, 2014 Genres: Contemporary, Humorous, Romance
I wanted three things out of life: to be successful, to make use of my journalism degree, and to write for the Life and Style section of a big name paper. Unfortunately, things never work out quite the way I plan. Some place between life's little twists and turns and a botched assignment, I found myself standing on the edge of the Puget Sound. If I don't nail this assignment, I'm out of a job and practically homeless thanks to my mom's edict. The challenges of an unwelcome travel companion aside, life could be far worse. I mean, who doesn't love Dragon Boat racing?
The hilarious short story of Maggie Moore (the klutz) and an exceedingly rude stranger that may have a larger spot in her life as time goes on?
First off, I LOVED Maggie. While I am horribly klutzy myself, she takes it to a whole other level! The best part was when she chewed on a pen and ink exploded all over her face.
Maggie has recently graduated college with a strange combination of journalism and interior design. She wants to write for the life and style section, but there is only one spot vacant at the newspaper when she interviews. She lies her ass off to get it - resulting in more hilarious moments!
The rude, but HOT, stranger she meets - John - should play a larger part in the stories going forward (I am guessing). When Maggie finds out something about his past, my heart practically stopped! John is a sad tortured soul that I must have more of IMMEDIATELY!
I hope I did not give too much away, as it is a short story. I LOVED it! Bring on the second story!!!
