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.

Not Lucky for me

At first this book seemed interesting , then the more I read it got boring .I’m tired of stupid woman making awful decisions .I have a hard time thinking a woman wrote this book and made the female characters weak and stupid . She should of done better research and she would of known grifters are smart with great instincts , maybe this is a YA book . Don’t waste your credit it’s boring predictable and there is no one to root for . A little sympathy to Lucky but to little to late .

Really?

Since I do not have a hard copy of the book to go by, did the narrator actually pronounce Tucson as "two sayin" or is there another city in Arizona with that name?

Unlikeable Characters

Never warmed to the main character. Couldn’t stand the thought of any of these terrible people winning huge amounts of money. Don’t understand how anyone feels sympathy for the ones that got away with causing people misery

Fun read

I really enjoyed this book. The narration wasn’t great. She sounds like a robot but the story was fun and entertaining

love this book!!

This is a book about a likable con artist on artist. Not my normal pic but I am so glad that I read it. The ending was very surprising but good.

Quick read…

I loved that it was a quick read. I was able to finish by the time my break was over. It kept me on my toes, thinking I knew what was going to happen and I was surprised every time!

Great build but too fast to end!

This book was a great build. It told the story well and kept you interested from start to finish. The finish wrapped up too fast for me.

great story

very entertaining, but the narrators voice was so robotic, it was off putting. I really enjoyed Luckys story and trials and tribulations. I just couldn't get past the tik tok voice that the narrative actor has, and her pronunciation of words and dialects she tried were awful.
