I have read Adele Parks before and find her novels compelling and this is no different.
For fifteen years a syndicate of friends have played the same numbers on the lottery until one weekend when there is a fallout. Lexi, married to Jake has been responsible for buying the ticket and she continues to buy it. The very next weekend the numbers come up and Lexi and Jake appear to be close to £18 million winners as a couple.
This is the beginning of the dispute where the other two couples involved in the syndicate claim that they are entitled to their share and the accusations begin. This is not the only disagreement and difficulty and as the book continues there are plots, subplots and underlying lies and deceit.
‘Just My Luck’ is cleverly plotted with characters I liked, felt empathy with and those I did not like and felt they deserved nothing from the winnings.
Many thanks to NetGalley, HQ Mystery and Thrillers and Adele Parks for my ARC of ‘Just My Luck’ in return for my honest review.
Great read and recommended.
