Loved this one! This book was SO much fun to read! This is a captivating story about an engaging con artist named Lucky (aka Luciana, Alaina and Andi) on the run from law enforcement and learning about herself along the way.
Lucky was raised by her grifter father and spent her childhood bouncing from one con game to another. She always yearned for a “normal” life and almost had one, until things went terribly wrong.
”Blind trust makes the world go ’round, kid,” her father would say. “And when it comes around to you, you grab that brass ring. Take what you can.”
This is a unique story and I could not put it down! The alternating timelines built to a twist that I did not see coming. I absolutely loved this story about redemption and second chances. Highly recommend!

About the Book:
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 runs out.
