Exclusive Edition containing an extra scene called Watch Your Step
It's the stuff dreams are made of - a lottery win so big, 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 - the kids, marriages, jobs and houses - and they've laughed off their disappointment when they failed to win anything more than a tenner.
But then, 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 friends are determined to claim a share of it.

'A modern day tale of (dis)loyalty and toxic friendships as a dream come true turns into a nightmare. Utterly gripping and fiendishly twisty. You'll never do the lottery again' - Veronica Henry
'Just My Luck turns the phrase "be careful what you wish for" into a brilliantly compelling yet cautionary tale with greed and betrayal at its darkened heart. The glitter of wealth, aspiration, broken trust, and eye-watering backstabbing, as well as raising thought-provoking moral questions, this book has it all. I loved it!' - Amanda Jennings
