"Betting Jessica is a book that is a fun and light read. Wilsted certainly has a gift with the development of her characters - particularly for a new author - and she demonstrates the same skill in the settings of her story. The feel of the writing reminded me of Sophie Kinsela - and had much of the same humorous situations, in a very real way." - The Book Worm's Library
"Deanne Wilsted's newest book, Betting Jessica, is a fun, fast read, full of love and laughs. After a night of drinking, Jessica finds herself in a bet with a guy she doesn't particularly like named Erik. The bet: Can she get a date with a certain celebrity? It's a nearly impossible task, but Jessica takes it on, not realizing the motive behind Erik's bet. I'm betting Wilsted's got a hit on her hands with Betting Jessica." - Penny Warner, Author of HOW TO PARTY WITH A KILLER VAMPIRE.
From the Author
Ever have one of those days where the only option is a crazy night out with your friends? I certainly have... and in Betting Jessica I let my imagination ask the question, 'what if'? What if... a guy you thought hated you actually didn't? What if.... your ego (and too many drinks) pushed you into making an insane bet? What if.... there was nothing to lose by not going for it?
This was the first novel I had written and my husband will tell you I laughed my way through practically every sentance. And, it made me ask the question, what if..... I wrote more novels? Years later, thanks to Betting Jessica, the answer is not just this book, but two more being prepared for sale and many more being creatively worked on.
Thanks for allowing me to share my story, Betting Jessica, with you. I hope you love reading it as much as I loved writing it.
