Description

Toma stares at me with unadulterated admiration. It’s the best look one human being can give another. He looks at me with respect, approval, gratitude and eagerness. I loved the drama where the friends were involved as well, also when the children played their part as well into the whole situation. It is crazy to see how easily children can be manipulated by words and wealth too, in their own little worlds. That said the storyline about Toma Albu got me from start to end. And, while the tie-up between the two threads is fairly predictable, I found this the most satisfying part of the novel. I was interested in him, his life and the developing relationship between him and Lexi and should have enjoyed more. Oooh this sounds like such a juicy book! I love the idea of each character holding onto a secret about another member of the group – it must be so exciting having them slowly be revealed x

The moral of this story, if there is one, surely must, be “Don’t play the lottery; if you win it will destroy your life.” How We Met: Adele Parks & Jane Fallon". The Independent. 10 January 2016. Archived from the original on 9 September 2021 . Retrieved 23 November 2021.While there are many reasons I didn’t care for him, I cannot get over how ridiculous he was with spending the money. I literally had massive anxiety as I was trying to calculate how much money the family could potentially have left after his impulse spending. From when the lottery was won, it felt like a rollercoaster of events spiralling out of control, without giving any spoilers away, Jake's sprees left me breathless and agitated !! Thank goodness I had a glass of bourbon in hand, and a buddy to read this book with! Kaceey - I wouldn’t haven’t gotten through this one without you! The tone is a bit all over the place, as the first 60-70% reads like a semi-light gossip drama with poignant scenes sprinkled in. After that, suspense emerges as things take a sinister turn and secrets come to light. I was pleasantly surprised by this direction, and appreciated the twists. I figured some of them out on my own, and others startled me. Most of the characters aren’t very likable with the possible exception of Lexi, but... 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.

How do you manage it? … Caring so much for people you don’t even know? In my experience, it’s cruel enough caring for those you do. The relationship between Lexi and Jake will begin to change, as they both will change during this period. This book is a perfect summary of what money may actually do to people and relationships, and how it may help them or destroy them completely. Parks, Adele (27 September 2019). "My son is off to uni and I'm excited, not bereft... So why am I made to feel like a bad mother?". The Telegraph. Archived from the original on 27 September 2019. After a bit of a rift the lottery syndicate dissolves, Lexi and Jake still go with it and astoundingly win 17.8 million pounds the week after with the same six numbers!! ADELE PARKS does a wonderful job with the characters here in showing us how winning a big lottery can affect some people in how they behave, choices that they make and the lengths they will go to secure that win. I definitely got a little annoyed with one of the characters in how they uncontrollably spent the money and didn’t take anything else into consideration. Lexie was by far the more sensible and stable character here.

Need Help?

And thus begins not only the unraveling of years long friendships, but secrets, deceits, lies and hidden agendas which had been hidden for many years. As the group breaks apart, their children who have been friends since birth must decide whose side they are taking. And some of them decide to take their jealousy a bit too far.

He is being crass. I am not sure what the elegant response to winning nearly eighteen million pounds is, but I doubt it is demanding the money like a highway robber. Meantime Lexi, a virtuous ( sometimes painfully so ) CAB advisor feels guilty having so much whilst Jake is throwing caution, himself and money to the wind and spending as much as he can, their 2 kids are equally loving it and helping him spend For fifteen 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.
