A new book by a new author in our library is “Just my Luck” by Adele Parks. For 15 years Lexi and Jake have played the same 6 numbers with their friends. Over drinks, dinner parties, and summer barbecues the couples have discussed the important stuff and laughed off their disappointments when they fail to win anything. Then there’s a rift in the group and the other two couples drop out. Lexi and Jake continue to play the same numbers. One day they find themselves with a ticket worth millions – and the other couples are determined to claim a share.
