This was such a good book – so good that I read it in just a few days. It had a storyline that could be overdone in the literary world but was handled with such character and talent that it felt extremely unique. It really made me think – what would I do? The unravelling of lies and secrets throughout the book was also brilliant.
Adele Parks is an amazing writer and I truly look forward to each publication that she releases. This was no exception!
About the book…
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.
Genre: Domestic Thriller
Publication: Out Now!
