Calculated Risk

By Zoe M. McCarthy


Whoever said opposites attract was right, of course…but no one ever said what they attract.

Jilted by the latest of her father’s choices of “real men,” Cisney Baldwin rashly accepts an invitation to spend Thanksgiving weekend with a sympathetic colleague and his family. Nick LeCrone is a man too much her opposite to interest her and too mild-mannered to make her overbearing father’s “list.” Now, Cisney fears Nick wants to take advantage of her vulnerable state over the holiday. Boy, is she wrong.

Nick wants little to do with Cisney. She drives him crazy with all her sticky notes and quirks. He extended an invitation because he felt sorry for her. Now he’s stuck, and to make matters worse, his family thinks she’s his perfect match. He’ll do what he can to keep his distance, but there’s just one problem—he’s starting to believe Cisney’s magnetism is stronger than he can resist.

Book Takeaway:

Mere humans, even those with good intentions, cannot play the roles of God’s co-leaders in others’ lives. Calculated Risk shows how a woman struggling under the influence of her overbearing father can respectfully free herself by redirecting her focus to God and His promises.

Why the author wrote this book:

Both my husband and I are retired actuaries, who evaluated the financial risks for our insurance companies. I wanted to write a story of a different kind of risk, the probability of romance between extreme opposites. Having worked with expressive, social marketing reps and analytical, private actuaries, I had my extreme opposites.
