Ever since seventeen-year-old Ann Bennett was diagnosed with a life-threatening heart condition two years ago, her family has been pulling apart. Ann and her two younger siblings fight constantly, as do their parents. When the doctors announce that Ann's only hope of survival is a heart transplant by the end of the summer, the Bennetts decide to wait for news of a donor at a family vacation home on the Oregon coast, near Haystack Rock. But rather than healing their differences, the time away only widens the rifts between them. That is, until they learn about The Winner's Game, a game their great grandparents invented to save their marriage decades ago. It doesn't work immediately, it takes some time to figure out the right way to play, but little by little things start to change. It seems everything might be okay, until the day tragedy strikes, and they are confronted with what it really means to love--and to be a family.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Milne's sweet, simple tale will remind readers of the importance of family and faithfulness. This novel pulls at the heart strings, yet never ventures too far into sappy territory. The characters are relatable and real, and the Oregon coast setting is spectacular."--RT Book Reviews, starred reviews
Inspirational and heartwarming, Milne's newest work weaves his familiar feel-good tone into an enjoyable story about friendship, love, and family that is sure to please fans and newcomers alike.--Booklist on The One Good Thing
"Milne's latest is a touching story about a legacy of love. Although the plot is a simple one, it will resonate with readers looking to reach outside themselves and spread kindness to others."--RT Book Reviews on The One Good Thing
"The One Good Thing by Kevin Alan Milne is everything that a novel should be. It is uplifting, inspiring and entertaining. The story draws readers in from page one and holds them captive to the end."--Desert News on The One Good Thing
"The magic of Kevin Milne's books is that they make you stop wishing the world was a better place and inspire you to actually get up and go make it one. The One Good Thing is exactly that kind of book."--Jason Wright, New York Times bestselling author of The Wednesday Letters on The One Good Thing
"Stirring and dramatic, Milne's work echoes that of Nicholas Sparks in its focus on love, commitment, faith, and the ultimate heartbreak of being human." --Booklist on The Final Note
"This one's a keeper."--Omaha World-Herald on The Paper Bag Christmas
"This is a small book in size but the message it sends is so big-this book points out the true meaning of Christmas."--American Chronicle on The Paper Bag Christmas
"...the story is ultimately heartwarming, and readers will be cheering for Sophie the whole time. This short book might not contain long-lasting happiness for us all, but it's certainly a good place to start."--San Francisco Book Review on Sweet Misfortune
