Can $87 million buy happiness? Lucy Parker is about to find out!

Lucy's life is a mess. She has a cheating boyfriend, a derailed career, and is in the middle of a media circus. But when she wins the lottery, Lucy begins to think her luck has finally changed.

In Palm Beach, the tropical paradise of millionaires, Lucy acquires a new hair color, a new social set, and enough anonymity to put her notoriety behind her. And soon, she's being courted by two men who don't know a thing about her.

Strangely enough, all that money and all her new stuff doesn't make Lucy happy. This isn't the life she'd envisioned for herself. Now she realizes that she would give up every penny to have her old life back. And just as she's ready to cash it all in, fate has one last surprise in store for Lucy - one that will show her exactly what she's worth.

(Ironically, I read Good Luck by Whitney Gaskell when the Mega Millions lottery was at $1.6 billion.) It was, hands down, the worst day of Lucy Parker’s life. Because of a student making false allegations, she lost her job; her car died in the middle of the street as she was going home; and then, when she reached the safety of her home, she found her boyfriend with another woman. Worst. Day. Ever. Until the next morning when she finds out that she has the sole winning lottery ticket and has won almost $35 million. Yay! Or maybe not. Because as soon as the word gets out, she has a whole new set of problems. Good Luck is a story about how things beyond your control can change your life in a moment. It’s how one person goes about figuring out exactly who she is, who her friends are, and how her life must evolve to adapt to those changes. And no, I did not rush out and buy a lottery ticket. Because, ultimately, Good Luck was about figuring out what things in life make you truly happy. Fortunately for me, reading library books doesn’t require a winning lottery ticket.
