The Miracle Girl

To secure a loving future, she must shed an addicting past.

Newspaper publisher and world traveler JJ Cavendish continually feels pressured to live up to her Miracle Girl nickname. Not many people know she’s living a carefully crafted lie. She may not hide ties to the LGBT community, but she does hide past struggles with addiction.

When the Colorado native is handpicked to take the helm at a dying Denver newspaper, she ends up reconnecting with her long lost love in this contemporary lesbian romance. Only there’s a catch. If JJ fires the most belligerent editor at the paper, she risks losing the love of her life.

Mid-afternoon office romps abound in this romantic comedy while also focusing on what it takes for a newspaper to remain relevant in this age of social media.

Must JJ lose everything in order to gain a life more fully her own?

JJ Cavendish, a newspaper publisher and world traveler, lives a lie as the Miracle Girl. She hides her addiction while being open about her LGBT identity.

When she returns to Denver to save a failing paper, she rekindles her romance with her old flame. But she must fire a hostile editor or lose her lover.

Can JJ balance her career, love, and secrets in this witty lesbian comedy?
