I am happy to be taking part in the Harlequin Trade Publishing Winter Blog Tour for Mysteries and Thrillers, featuring JUST MY LUCK by Adele Parks. I loved this book so much! The story centers on three families of best friends and what happens when one of them wins the lottery. A huge issue is that they normally – for years – have shared a ticket weekly. This time they supposedly didn’t. However what I loved about this book was that it showed how complicated money can be. People often think that all their problems will be solved if they are rich; this book shows that it can be quite the opposite. I loved the main character so much. One of my favorite parts was when they won and everyone made a list of what they would buy first. In among the expensive cars, designer clothes, and high end travel, was her item: a new couch. 🙂
Here’s the overview:
Adele Parks has brought her #1 Sunday Times sensation, JUST MY LUCK (MIRA Trade Paperback; April 6, 2021; $17.99) to the US!
Be careful what you wish for…
After spending happy hours, parenting classes and barbeques together for the last 15 years, Lexi and Jake Greenwood have celebrated and shared almost everything with the Pearsons and the Heathcotes, including their lottery numbers. Then one night, the unthinkable happens. Someone has been telling lies – lies dark enough to burn bridges and tear the tight group of friends apart. When the Greenwoods win a stunning $23 million in the lottery with their group’s numbers shortly after their dramatic falling out, the Heathcotes and Pearsons believe they’re entitled to part of the prize… and the three couples will do anything to claim what is theirs.
Reader beware: the last chapter will change everything.
A compulsively readable portrait of the fragility of friendship, the corrosiveness of sudden wealth, and the dark side of good luck, Adele Parks’ latest domestic thriller will make you think twice about trying your hand at the lottery.
This would be a GREAT choice for book clubs. What would you do with millions of dollars? And what do you think about that ending….?
