It’s the stuff dreams are made of – a lottery win so big, it changes everything.

For fifteen years, Lexi and Jake have played the same six numbers with their friends, the Pearsons and the Heathcotes. Over dinner parties, fish & chip suppers and summer barbecues, they’ve discussed the important stuff – the kids, marriages, jobs and houses – and they’ve laughed off their disappointment when they failed to win anything more than a tenner.

But then, one Saturday night, the unthinkable happens. There’s a rift in the group. Someone doesn’t tell the truth. And soon after, six numbers come up which change everything forever.

Lexi and Jake have a ticket worth £18 million. And their friends are determined to claim a share of it.
 
Sunday Times Number One bestseller Adele Parks returns with a riveting look at the dark side of wealth in this gripping take on friendship, money and betrayal, and good luck gone bad…

Review

I have thoroughly enjoyed Adele Park’s latest books, I invited Her In and Lies Lies Lies so could not wait to read Just My Luck. Luckily it did not disappoint!

The story is exciting and I found it to be a great read.

 A family’s dream comes true as they win £17.8 million on the Lottery. Lexi came home to a very excited husband as he declares their win from her ticket. Caught up he tells his teenage children Emily and Logan. The spending begins with Jake and the children buying new clothes, an expensive car and holidays. The usual things you expect lottery winners to buy.

 Unfortunately at the press conference their friends Carla and Patrick and Jennifer and Fred burst in to declare they want part of their syndicate.

Another part of the story includes Toma who lost his wife and young child due to a negligent landlord and as Lexi is working for Citizens Advice she becomes involved in his tragedy.

 The story soon becomes a nightmare for Lexi Greenwood with twists and turns that keep you turning the pages. This story reminds you of the way money can bring out the worst in people.

 A great read.
