Over four million Adele Parks books sold worldwide including Lies, Lies, Lies and I Invited Her In

"Utterly engrossing and brilliant" (Lucy Foley, New York Times best-selling author of The Guest List)

It was supposed to be the lottery win they’d always dreamed of...

For 15 years, Lexi and Jake have played the same six numbers with their friends. Over drinks, dinner parties, and summer barbecues, the three couples have discussed the important stuff - kids, marriages, careers - and they’ve laughed off their disappointment when they failed to win anything.

But then, the unthinkable happens. There’s a rift in the group. Someone is caught in a lie. And soon after, six numbers come up that change everything forever.

Lexi and Jake have a ticket worth millions. And their friends are determined to claim a share.

Number one Sunday Times best-selling author Adele Parks returns with a riveting look at the dark side of wealth in this gripping tale of friendship, money, betrayal, and good luck gone bad.

Couldn’t stop listening

A great psychological thriller. Lots of twists and turns. My only complaint is I couldn’t stop listening!

Great book!

This is not as straightforward as you think going in. It’s a real rollercoaster ride, with an ending you won’t see coming.

A pleasant change

I enjoyed this book as I have never read a book where the lottery was won and how it affected everyone. We all dream about what we would do if we won the lottery but the reality is different (at least it is in this book).
I pretty much figured out the mystery part but there was a twist or 2 thrown in that kept it interesting.
I have never read a book by Adele Parks and will definitely try another title. I enjoyed the narrators as well.

Oh.... my.... whoa!

Wow. Lol! Right until the last minutes there are shockers and twists.
The narration which is stilted is somehow appropriate. We are told the story from Lexie, the wife of one of the couples and her teenage daughter. It’s read in a dark, factual way that feels like a documentary. But... somehow it all pulls together for quite a tale. Somehow I feel there were a few life lessons along the way also without being preachy.
Enjoyed this after a long dry spell of duds.

Good but frustrating

I did enjoy the book,it was well written and easy to follow. It was hard for me to love it because I just couldn't not stand the self riotous main character lady. She drove me crazy!

Slow but Original 🐢👧👦👩💃👨💰

Greatest Strength: Originality
Greatest Annoyance: “Privilege” Overkill, like 90% of new releases
Narrators: Took a few chapters to adjust, but they were pretty good.

No Spoilers: but Jake tho 🤮

Overall opinion: Other than the over-saturated “people with money are evil and greedy” premise, the plot was interesting and unique. However, at one point I just knew it was over and there were still 4 hours left. The book gears up, slows down, gears up, slows down and so-on throughout. If it were a little less dry and a little more entertaining I would have enjoyed that attribute, because I love a good long book. But “okay” can only hold my attention for so long.

Side note:

First, I have to ask, what’s up with this constant “privilege” theme? What about the theme of hero-worshipping immigrants and other cultures yet disdain for your own country and culture? Why can’t we have one without the other? I suppose this is an international initiative that has trickled into sports, entertainment, education, and basically everywhere else.

In this book, every place Lexi goes from restaurants to stores to parties are filled with nothing but terrible people. Even in her memories of waiting tables, she remembers only privileged perverted men and picky women. I waited tables, have owned businesses, and have worked for large corporations. I cannot completely relate to this sentiment that most authors are now soaking their pages with. I know that the very top 2% of the world might live and act like this, but I’m just so bored of generalizing the entire middle and upper classes of society this way. They are likely the reason that more than once, when I offer food to the homeless, they are well fed enough to be choosy and even turn it away. They keep people employed. They take positions and challenges no one else can or wants to take. They volunteer and fundraise for the causes you believe in. Let’s be careful not to demonize an entire race or class of people, since that’s the very thing we’ve been fighting against.
