The latest title from Adele Parks presents 3 married couples living outside of London. For years they pooled their money and played the lottery each week. When they have a falling out, 2 of the couples decide they won’t participate in the ‘common’ practice of entering the lottery. The remaining couple continues to enter and one week later they win BIG: $17+ million dollars. The tension and friction this inevitably creates is Parks at her best. She weaves the connections and histories together like a master at her loom. Rewinding to the events before the winning ticket, we learn that the friends had long-term grievances and secrets that will determine their future decisions and outcome. Entertaining! This title is available in the audio edition on Hoopla through on our library home page.
