About Talisman Turner
Talisman Turner has just been dumped.
It’s not her. It’s not the guy. It’s the Red Sox.
Tali’s ex-boyfriend believes that sacrificing their relationship will reverse the curse plaguing his beloved baseball team.
Tali’s determined to reverse a curse too–the one haunting her sorry love life. And she’s betting on the psychological theories she studied in college to do it.
But will she succeed?
Fans of Sophie Kinsella and Susan Elizabeth Phillips will enjoy reading The Triumphs and Travails of Talisman Turner, a romantic comedy for women who need a chuckle after a long day of work (or shopping)!
