Publisher's Summary

Reese's Book Club Pick

New York Times Best Seller

A thrilling roller-coaster ride about a heist gone terribly wrong, with a plucky protagonist who will win listeners’ hearts.

What if you had the winning ticket that would change your life forever, but you couldn’t cash it in?

Lucky Armstrong is a tough, talented grifter who has just pulled off a million-dollar heist with her boyfriend, Cary. She’s ready to start a brand-new life, with a new identity - when things go sideways. Lucky finds herself alone for the first time, navigating the world without the help of either her father or her boyfriend, the two figures from whom she’s learned the art of the scam.

When she discovers that a lottery ticket she bought on a whim is worth millions, her elation is tempered by one big problem: Cashing in the winning ticket means she’ll be arrested for her crimes. She’ll go to prison, with no chance to redeem her fortune. 

As Lucky tries to avoid capture and make a future for herself, she must confront her past by reconciling with her father; finding her mother, who abandoned her when she was just a baby; and coming to terms with the man she thought she loved - whose dark past is catching up with her, too.

This is a novel about truth, personal redemption, and the complexity of being good. It introduces a singularly gifted, multilayered character who must learn what it means to be independent and honest...before her luck runs out.

Story too contrived and predictable

What was so great about this book? Sounded like a bad Danielle Steel novel. Couldn’t stand the narrator’s voice. I found moments in the story that actually made me cringe and I had to fast forward 30 seconds.

Liked the story didn't like the narration

Good story, bad narration. The voice at times sounded robotic and made it difficult to get into the book.

Couldn’t get into it

Just okay- Characters weren’t very well developed; narration was bland; plot was predictable; overall very forgettable

Good story, monotone narration

The story was funny and a quick listen but I found the narrator quite monotone and paused unnecessary in the middle of sentences.

Unfortunately, not great

I was disappointed with this one. I felt the story could have, so many times, just been quickly solved, the main character redeemable, only to continue to make repeatedly stupid decisions for someone intended to be clever. I felt the narrator did her best to try to make the protagonist endearing, but even that didn’t work. I think she probably read it with eyes rolling a few times. I wanted to like this one, but o really struggled to complete it. Sorry!
