Overview

THE SUNDAY TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER! What if winning means losing everything? 'A gripping story of greed, lies and dark family secrets' Lisa Jewell 'Utterly engrossing and brilliant' Lucy Foley 'Addictive, provocative... brilliantly crafted' TM Logan 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 GBP18 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... Praise for Just My Luck: 'Adele Parks never takes her foot off the gas, every book is tighter, faster, better than the last. Just My Luck is a gripping story of greed, lies and dark family secrets. I read it in a two-day frenzy' Lisa Jewell 'Utterly engrossing and brilliant' Lucy Foley 'A compelling take on one of those what if scenarios that we've all wondered about. Addictive, provocative and thoroughly relatable - a brilliantly crafted reminder to be careful what you wish for' TM Logan 'An absolute joy: gripping, shocking and surprising. A cautionary tale about what one couple's sudden wealth can do to old friendships' Jane Fallon 'Fabulous... her best yet' Daily Mail 'Stupendous! I read this totally compelling modern-day morality tale over a weekend - I couldn't put it down. As ever, Adele Parks does not disappoint - you'll love it' Ruth Jones 'Like a deft magician, this book reveals its twists only at the very end, I was completely astonished' Rosamund Lupton
