Blog Tour Stop with Review - Just My Luck by Adele Parks

Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for Just My Luck by the incredible Adele Parks! I'm so excited to share my thoughts on this book with you!

What They Say:

What if winning means losing everything?

‘A gripping story of greed, lies and dark family secrets’ Lisa Jewell, No.1 bestselling author
‘Addictive, provocative and thoroughly relatable – a brilliantly crafted reminder to be careful what you wish for’ TM Logan, bestselling author

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…

What I Say:

Well! This book was not at all what I expected! I know that Adele's books have taken on a darker twist recently, so I didn't expect sunshine and rainbows but this was DARK!

I think it's safe to say we all dream of winning the lottery jackpot, but few of us think about the downside of becoming multimillionaires overnight. Who can you trust? Do you know who your true friends are? How much would it change your relationships?

Lexi and Jake, along with their children Emily and Logan are an ordinary family, with an ordinary life. They have a small circle of friends they've known for years. But can they really be trusted? Do they really, truly know them?

When Jake and Lexi win £18 million, their lives instantly change. Jake and the kids are happy to spend and splurge. Lexi wants to do some good with the money. But their friends may not be so happy for them. The family need to really evaluate who they trust because not everyone is happy to see the money shared out in the same way. Who is truly happy for them? When things take a sinister twist, is it at the hands of a stranger or should they be looking closer to home?

This book is a huge rollercoaster of emotion! The characters are strong and well written, the dialogue is so gripping and the twists are shocking. The story flows so quickly and compellingly that I couldn't put the book down. I read it in one sitting, which is rare for me! Adele Parks is one of my all-time favourite authors and her books never let me down.

I had no idea what was really going on and I'm still reeling! Bloody brilliant! 9.5/10

Why I'm Shaving My Head for Lancashire Women

Hi there! I know it's been ages since I've done a personal blog post.      Things have been... weird. I know the whole world has struggled getting used to this new normal and the new measures we have to follow. So many people have lost so much to COVID and my heart breaks for them. And while the virus itself hasn't changed my life very much, this time of lockdowns and self-isolating has been really hard for me too.      When it all first started to change, Steve was taken into hospital with a bunch of different symptoms. COVID wasn't really a thing then, so he wasn't tested for it, but looking back, we're pretty sure that's what it was. While he was in hospital in March, an inspector from the RSPCA came to check on the welfare of our dogs as they'd had a report that Sky, our GSD, was too skinny. She is petite, a slim girl who didn't have a good start in life but is spoilt rotten now, along with our other 2, Bella and Minnie. They had no concerns and
