A thrilling roller-coaster ride about a heist gone terribly wrong, with a plucky protagonist who will win readers' 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 run

This was another fun ride adventure, was better than I expected at the beginning and definitely hooked me. Many too perfect line up moments but they were at least for good reasons ( )

Lucky is a story that is about a young woman who was raised as a child to be a con artist. The book goes back and forth between the past and the present, showing Lucky's upbringing by her con artist father and the mess she finds herself in currently as she is on the lamb. Through the story you will follow Lucky through her past to the present as she fights for freedom and a connection to something concrete and real in her life.

One aspect of the book that I did like was, that you find yourself conflicted with rooting for Lucky’s success and knowing that she is also a liar. Marissa Stapley does a good job laying the foundation for debate of nature vs. nurture and how Lucky had life stacked against her from the beginning while she struggles with the turmoil of what she knows and wanting to be a good person.
I have mixed luck with Reese Witherspoon’s book club picks and this one joins the list of ones that just don’t stand out to me. Honestly, I came close to not finishing this one, however, it was short and easy to read so I stuck with it…. Bottom line, although the story was a simple quick one…. I was bored. ( )
