Like most co-workers do when a collection is taken up for a baby shower, wedding, promotion or perhaps a birthday, Cassia Carr kicks in her obligatory five dollars and then goes back to what she was doing. But one collection Cassia donates to is different -- and she doesn't realize it. She's not contributing to just any cause; she's contributing to the lottery. And she and her colleagues win. Her portion of the windfall comes to just over $20 million. Not a bad day's work, you think?

Problem is Cassia is a P.K. (preacher's kid) who speaks in scripture verses and doesn't believe in gambling. She is horrified to think that she has $20 million in ill-gotten gains -- so she decides to give it away. The problem is, it's more difficult than one would think to give large amounts of lottery gains away.

But wait! One man (in a trio of would-be suitors) is more than willing to relieve Cassia of those disgusting greenbacks. Adam, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, has recently returned from a ravaged land and that fact, and Cassia, is preventing him from getting on with his life. He's interested in Cassia but doesn't want her to know that he's also interested in her money and the story of her money.

Adam has fallen away from his faith and just might find his way back if he opens his heart and listens to it and God.

For fans of the Whitney Chronicles there is a couple of interesting cameo appearances in Million Dollar Dilemma.

I so enjoy Judy Baer's 'chick-lit' Christian fiction. It's a fun romp through life that provides each of us with thought-provoking situations. I giggled my way through The Whitney Chronicles. In this book I started laughing on page 24 and didn't ever quit.

Armchair Interviews says: Million Dollar Dilemma is a million-dollar treasure you must read! And give a wonderful gift to a friend.
