Development Pitch

"The premise of this story is pretty unique!" Goodreads Reviewer "Witty, charming, entertaining and well-written." Goodreads Reviewer "The story hits all the expected stops, doesn’t disappoint and has two people finding themselves and maybe each other." Goodreads Reviewer Would you travel the world with a perfect stranger? Fasten your seat belts for an emotional journey filled with humor and adventure. Bachelor & newscaster Pete McCarney buys two plane tickets for a trip around the world with his girlfriend, but they split up shortly before the trip, and he can't get a refund. In a gutsy last minute move, Pete goes on social media asking for women with his girlfriend's exact name to join him on the trip. Twenty-one women apply, and the ensuing interview process is both awkward and hilarious. When he finally chooses a feisty, headstrong, recently-divorced lawyer, he has no idea what to expect from their world-wide adventures - and neither does Allie James. She has pretty much sworn off men since her divorce. Will either of them get the vacation they were so desperately hoping for? Read The Ticket, and travel with Pete and Allie around the world today. What readers are saying: “Laugh out loud funny.” “The most enjoyable book I’ve read in a long time.” “I did not put it down once I started it.” “What a fun book, filled with love, pain, devotion and a whole lot of other emotions.” “Her characters are very real, and could be your friends and family.”
