Book Description

…he was most likely going to be dead in a year. Talk about long odds. Two of the longest shot racehorses come in and he is a winner on both. On the same day. He should be looking for random clouds in the sky and avoiding them so he didn’t get struck by lightning today as well. The chance of that happening was immensely better than what had already occurred.

It is said that our worst days are measured by our best. What if it was the same day? Winner! Winner! is the story of a man who is diagnosed with cancer and wins the lottery on the same day. What would you do?

5.0 out of 5 stars Cars, Food, Romance, and a great story February 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Winner! Winner! It is a great book for everyone: exotic cars, good looking people, and great food with just enough romance without going overboard. A wonderful summer read and/or discussion book. Perfect for a book club to talk about many points addressed in Winner! Winner! such as health care, love, charity, chance, taking a chance, setting as a character, and value of money.
The author takes us on an interesting, and at times uncomfortable, trip in a friendly and inviting way. There are a few clunky bits but easily forgiven with wonderful descriptions of fabulous food and the joy of giving. I look forward to his second novel because if this is the quality of the first--the rest should be just as much of an emotional and thought provoking journey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart warming story written in a first class way. February 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love this book! It was a page turner that I didn't want to put down. This story was very well written and you could not help but fall in love with the characters. I especially love how the writer highlights and brings awareness to many charties and organizations that always need help. After reading this book, I felt like going out and doing a litte good in the world. The story was a quick read and kept my attention. I would recommend this book to anyone, so many people i'm sure could relate to the story one way or another. First class story written in a first class way!

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I absolutely could not put this book down. Super easy reading but such an incredible story. The characters are so easy to love and identify with (well, there is one you will hate but that is the point of her). I can't remember the last time a book pulled me in like this one. Love it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Winner! Winner! Is a winner! December 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As someone with a compassionate heart, I've often wondered what kind of philanthropic things I might do with a lottery win. Well, the author gave me some great ideas while putting an interesting spin on the subject. I can't tell you how many times I had to stop reading to wipe away tears of joy. It's an easy read that will give you more than your "moneysworth" of smiles.

5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't put it down- fun read January 16, 2013
By OMAZING
Format:Paperback
Comedy, drama, romance...I finished this book too fast despite its 500+ pages. The characters were endearing and the plot moved along with twists and turns. I felt like I knew the characters personally and didn't want it to end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read February 5, 2013
By Tom C
Format:Paperback
Winner! Winner! is a great read. I am an avid reader and I give the author's first novel five stars. The storyline is new (something I cannot say for many established authors) and is based on circumstances that could happen to anyone, albeit a long shot. The reader can picture themselves dealing with the pressure of doing the right thing regarding their new found wealth, while dealing with the inevitable outcome
of their medical condition. Keep writing Scott!

5.0 out of 5 stars Winner! Winner! February 5, 2013
By Jane S.
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Love this book. Even though you can guess the outcome the journey that Scott took Ron on was captivating and kept you wanting to know more. The end was sad and wonderful. Sad that he will never get to see his twins grow up but wonderful that he left this earth gracefully and in the arms of his family. Well done Scott! Looking forward to reading more from you.
