Adele Parks Just My Luck

#1 Bestselling author discussing her latest novel.

It's the stuff dreams are made of - a lottery win so bit, it changes everything.

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 - children, marriages, jobs and houses - and laughed off their disappointment when they failed to win anything more than a tenner.

But one Saturday night, the unthinkable happens. There's a rift in the group. someone doesn't tell the truth. And soon after, six numbers come up which change everything forever. Lexi and Jake have a ticket worth £18 million, and their freinds want a share.

Adele Parks was born in Teesside, she is the author of 19 international bestsellers, including Lies, Lies, Lies. She is an ambassador for the National Literacy Trust and just for the Costa Prize. She has lived in Botswana, Italy and London and is now settled in Guildford, Surrey with her husband and cat. Just My Luck is her 20th novel in 20 years.

I thought the event had a really good feel to it - and people couldn't have been friendlier and more welcoming. Good luck with future events.
