Yet another winner by Liza O’Connor. I’m used to it by now that she starts off her many series with a bang and hooks the reader, and this book fits right in. “A Fortune to Die For” is Book 1 in the new White Oak Mafia Series, and it’s as promising as can be.

I love the heroine most, which is something that always happens with her books. With many romance novels, I find myself focusing on the hero, though I side with the heroine. With O’Connor’s books, I inevitably ‘fall for’ the heroine because s

I really enjoyed A Fortune to Die For (White Oak-Mafia book 1) as well as Unexpected Love and Dance or Die. With all the suspense and mystery, this book had me questioning everything the entire way through.
An excellent edge-of-your-seat read!

Liza O'Connor is one of my favorite writers, but after reading so many of her books I started getting tired of the similarities :
Similarities with a long road to love:
The protagonist is a financial genius.
Over qualified for whichever job she applies to.
The FBI is involved.
Inseparable with her laptop/notebook takes notes creates to-do listes for everything and incredible presentations ....
Impresses whoever meets her.
Hardworking and stubborn protagonist.
Resides in New Jersey.

Megan Clarke is doing well for herself until she wins the Mega Times Lottery and inherits the curse that comes along with it. She constantly is receiving threats on her life and enough that the FBI decides that she should start over with a new name and identity. Megan heads to Iowa with an interest in purchasing land from Helen Campbell.

Detective Steve Williams is on the case protecting Megan and soon finds that she is involved with all the wrong people and that her life is really in danger. Whe

I loved the story.
It was full of unexpected twists, funny moments, and relatable characters.
Yet, it’s not what I loved the most about it. It was the honesty of the story itself and the characters. Meg is quirky and sweet, someone who learned the hard way how having it all sometimes means losing everything else. I loved the way she gets rid of the ‘curse’. It was so unexpected! Steve, Helen, and Tess able to take her away from the dark place she was in, and taught her to trust again.

You would think that winning the lottery would solve any person's problems, but it only causes more problems for Megan Clarke. Now people are trying to kill her and she's not sure who she can trust.

First you think that money would make you happy but it doesn't. Ms. O'Connor's stories always feature a happy ending though, so I wasn't worried...although I was pretty nervous for Megan many times. And Megan is entirely very likable, no one would wish death on such a nice person who sets out to find

What a unique story! I typically read more paranormal and sci-fi titles, but this one caught my eye as a contemporary drama I might be into. I'm really glad I gave it a chance. Meg is complex, yet likeable. Her rocky road after winning the lottery is both plausible and a smooth fit for the position she's in regarding the white oak forest. I won't post any spoilers, but I must say the characters rang true and the plot kept me reading, and thinking, and coming back for more.
