"Can you imagine pulling out of a lottery syndicate the week before your numbers come up?" ~ 5%
Imagine winning the lottery! Not just a regular 3- or 4-digit hit but millions! None of the syndicate could imagine their weekly $5 contribution to a lottery ticket would be a winner. Lexi, Jake and friends played the same numbers for 15 years. The frimily (friends that are like family) played and carried on life as usual with dinner parties, summer barbecues and playdates with children.
Who is lying? It is hard to determine which story is the truth once the lottery league starts to investigate claims to the winning ticket. Someone either made a life-changing mistake or is a shark. To Lexi and Jake's recollection, their friends pulled out the week before saying it was a waste of money since they never hit big. But now that their numbers fell in the jackpot, they claim such a conversation never took place.
"It had all the elements to titillate the morbidly curious, the wickedly gossipy: a lottery win, an extravagant lifestyle, illicit sex and shocking violence." ~ 97%
Well said. The quote above best summarizes Just My Luck. This is a story of luck, trust and the dark side of wealth. It quickly gripped me and never let go until the very last page. I am a sucker for a good twist. Just My Luck had twist after good twist after good ass twist! Adele Parks put on her thinking cap for this one. I highly recommend it for drama readers and lottery players.
Happy Early Pub Day, Adele Parks! Just My Luck will be available Tuesday, April 6.
