Synopsis: CHAMPAGNE GODSs by Emily Dendinger
Holly has made the greatest archeological discovery of the 21st century—an oracle of the god Apollo that shows you the person you’re meant to spend your life with. However, when Holly decides that there’s more to life than archeology, her colleague Will takes it upon himself to change her mind. Set among the marble halls of the British Museum on the night of a New Years Eve gala, chaos ensues as love turns everything topsy turvy. A throwback to the screwball comedies of the 1940s, CHAMPAGNE GODS is a romantic romp about fate, farce and fidelity.
