Category: Mystery & Thrillers
It hasn’t been a very good day for attorney Samantha Khouri. She’s been passed over for partner at her law firm, she’s coming down with the flu, and she’s just learned that her parents’ business is teetering on the brink of failure.
But when she discovers that her financially desperate boss has stolen their new client’s gigantic winning lottery ticket, she realizes her day is just getting started.
Now, to return the ticket to its rightful owner, Samantha must stay one step ahead of her nothing-to-lose boss and a homicidal mercenary who’s been hired to hunt down the ticket at all costs.
And as her pursuers close in, Samantha can’t help but think about showing up at lottery headquarters, smiling for the camera, and walking away with the richest lottery jackpot in American history.
I’ve enjoyed going even further and reading not only the book descriptions, but some of the reviews, just to get a deeper understanding of what the book is about. Anything that mixes in a little bit of humor is a HUGE PLUS for me. Check this review out:
"The Jackpot" is just a fantastic book. It's a page-turning thriller that is filled with humor and great characters. And these are fully fleshed out characters, who make relatable decisions. They are not always the smartest decisions, but the reasons they made those decisions make sense for the character.
This is not a by-the-numbers thriller. Each plot twist took me by surprise. Every page was more exciting and intriguing then the last. But personally the best aspect of this book is the main character Samantha. Just that the main character of this type of thriller is a woman is something new. But Samantha is a fascinating woman. She's strong-willed, determined, hilarious, and vulnerable. From the second you meet her, you're rooting for her.
I highly recommend this book. Download it today. You will enjoy every second of it.
And so I did! It was still free when I downloaded it just a bit ago ---double check that it is still free for you because that can change at any time.
Now – the rest of the story. First off….what’s up with this?
My CARD is enclosed? from AARP!? I’m guessing I’m “Offically” Over-The-Hill now! What’s even worse is that DH brought it down to the basement just to rub my nose in it! Hmmmmmmmm! How RUDE!
The other thing…FED EX?!? What’s this about? The lightest box is being squished by the heaviest box? >_<
It’s a good thing that I loaded the excess space in the boxes with “PACKING MATERIAL!” I just hope that there were no sticky-fingered transport agents who saw this as an opportunity to increase the variety of their own stashes!
I guess I better get right to unpacking these boxes and take inventory. These pieces of fabric "Packing Material" are the “Scraps” from Quilt Lover’s Hang Out in North Fort Myers Florida from my trip last week…they are about the size of a FQ, and were on sale for 25 cents….time to reaquaint myself with my HAUL!
