A Monetary Affair (by BettyHT)

Summary:  Juliette will be off her game in this story due to her condition, and yet things will work out far better than she wants them to work out.  You’ll have to read it to understand that.  It’s a much more light-hearted story than the previous two, and only the weather is the villain, and well, lady luck plays a role too.
