Meet Emily Snow, a gentle, kind-hearted young woman with a chic, bohemian flair. Emily's always played by the rules, made good decisions, and done the right thing. But her quiet and rather uneventful life takes a dramatic turn when her mother dies--the only family she had, leaving her devastated and grief-stricken. Ready to bury her sorrow, and with coaxing from her best friend and city-slicker, Samantha, Emily decides to make a fresh start, moving from her hometown of Atlanta, to the hustle of Washington, D.C. There, she fights to build a new life and tame a secret demon that s been gnawing at her for years. As Emily struggles with the dilemma of doing what's right, versus doing what she wants, she's befriended by a neighbor with mysterious powers who helps her as she confronts her longing for the one thing she s always desired....her best friend's father!

Samantha Baldwin is a true daddy's girl, and the ultimate rebel, not necessarily with a cause! Wild, bold, and unabashedly free, she does what she wants without a second thought. From her poor choices in bad men, to her questionable parenting skills, to her tumultuous and strained relationship with her mother, Samantha has always run from truth and into trouble. But when the only man she's ever loved walks back into her life, and her relationship with her mother comes to an explosive head, she thinks things can t get any rockier--until her best friend betrays her in a way she'd never imagined. Now, Samantha must tap into an inner-strength she never knew she had, and hold together a family she realizes is worth fighting for.

Poignant, smart, and brutally honest, Playing the Hand You re Dealt, takes readers on a riveting ride into the lives of friends with secrets and families with agendas.
