Being an entrepreneur was all she really wanted, but even Onnilissa’s mother felt a woman needed a job and to let the dreams of owning a business. To her surprise, the father she had never met left her with the majority stock to his company, which she realized she could cash in to acquire the money to start her business. In order to acquire permission to sell, she must fly to Detroit and come to the funeral.
“Please do something I want to do,” her married best friend who lived vicariously through her before she boarded the flight to Motown.
Onnilissa noticed the dark handsome stranger from the time she got on the plane until the time she was trying to find a ride to get to her hotel.
“There are no rides,” he said standing next to his private car. “Not for several hours. I live here and I fly in late at night all the time. Would you like a ride?”
The offer was innocent and genuine. She hadn’t had that in a long time and by the time they arrived at her hotel, she was inviting him up. It was one night, with a stranger, right?
He was gone when she woke up, but she had to rush to the funeral to really care, although all she could think about was the wonderful night she had with the stranger and how she hoped she could find him and have another night.
At the funeral, she finally met her half brother and half sister, their kids and even their mother. She unfortunately found out as well her father had left them nothing and loved her more than he loved his other children, who he had disregarded most of their lives.
Needing to get out of there, Impatiently, she asked about signing the papers for her money.
The lawyer tells her that all conditions will be met, but there was one more person who wanted to meet her who was running late.
To her surprise, the tall dark stranger arrived in the room and she found herself still entranced by him, until she found out… this was her uncle.
Her desperate need to get away preceded her need to sign the documents for the money. She swore to never come to Detroit again.
And that’s where her life starts to change.
Author’s Note: 3/4/2019
Over 50K words. I’ve finally finished Daddy’s Girl.
This was the first book in a long time that I wrote that didn’t include a live reading like the last books I’ve been doing for the past six years.
It was different from being a solitary writer again, but I needed to do this in order to get my life together. My writing life and my personal life.
Yet, I’m holding on to this story for a publisher or until May when I will pitch this at the May event I’m going to sit down with an agent.
If it’s not picked up then, I will publish it myself.
For now, this is the official post on this book.
