Product description

Review

“An electric story about an unconventional heroine who is on the run from her past with a winning lottery ticket that could change her future forever. But here’s the catch . . . she can’t cash it in! I loved all the twists and turns of this adventure, not knowing where Lucky was going to end up next.”
— 
REESE WITHERSPOON

“A wild and deeply satisfying rollercoaster ride through the world of a con artist with a heart of gold. Propulsive and affecting, 
Lucky is the most fun I’ve had reading a book in quite a while.”
— 
TAYLOR JENKINS REID, New York Times bestselling author of Malibu Rising and Daisy Jones & the Six  

“Stapley’s gorgeous writing cuts to the bone, and her grifter heroine, both vulnerable and fierce, is driven by a genius premise. With equally compelling alternate timelines, Stapley takes readers on a gripping, heart-wrenching journey of resilience, hope, and redemption. A stunning read!”
— 
SAMANTHA M. BAILEY, #1 bestselling author of Woman on the Edge

“A fun page-turner.”
— 
Toronto Star

“Meet Lucky Armstrong, an unconventional heroine who is on the run from her past with a winning lottery ticket that could change her future. A story of survival, redemption, and forgiveness,
Lucky explores the power of second chances. A riveting caper full of heart, I loved this book!”
— 
KARMA BROWN, bestselling author of Recipe for a Perfect Wife

“Who can you trust when everything you’ve ever known is a lie? That’s the fundamental question in Stapley’s fourth book, a Bonnie-and-Clyde meets
Gone Girl tale of family and the search for stability.”
— 
Booklist

“A criminal with a winning lottery ticket scrambles to elude arrest in this thrilling adventure. . . . Stapley raises the stakes through Lucky’s increasingly desperate moves while adding depth via flashbacks to Lucky’s childhood, which was full of scams and disappointments, and through Lucky’s gradual reckoning with the truth. This page-turner packs in more than its share of heart.”
— 
Publishers Weekly

“A grifter on the run who wins the lottery is only the opening gambit of this high-fueled twisty tale through the life of Lucky, daughter of a con artist who seemed doomed to make her father’s mistakes. Will the money save her and provide her with redemption or lead her down darker paths? You’ll want to put this on your to-read list immediately.”
— 
CATHERINE McKENZIE, USA Today bestselling author of I’ll Never Tell

“With an original premise, a gutsy-yet-vulnerable heroine, dodgy villains, and bad choices galore, Marissa Stapley's highly entertaining
Lucky is sure to wow readers. Fast-paced, skillfully crafted, and beautifully written, this book had me stay up late and get up early to find out what would happen to that winning lottery ticket. I loved it!”
— 
HANNAH MARY McKINNON, bestselling author of Sister Dear

“This fun romp, with deeper themes of identity, family ties, and the meaning of truth in a life built on lies, kept me greedily turning pages late into the night. Perfect for book clubs—or anyone looking for their next unputdownable read.”
— 
COLLEEN OAKLEY, USA Today bestselling author of You Were There Too

“Stapley’s novels are always filled with strong, intriguing women and
Lucky is no exception. Lucky Armstrong is the flawed, fascinating character at the heart of this gripping novel, and as we follow the twists and turns of her adventures, we’re not sure where she’s going to take us—but it’s a hell of a fun ride.”
— 
ELIZABETH RENZETTI, bestselling author of Based on a True Story and Shrewed

“Stapley has created a complicated woman just as magnetic and compelling for her readers as she is for the people she fleeces—and luckily, readers will only get richer by being swept away with her story of curious fortunes.”
— 
KERRY CLARE, author of Waiting for a Star to Fall

“An honestly moving and propulsive book about the art of the con, 
Lucky has the pathos of Paper Moon and the bite of The Grifters shot through with real heart and humour. Even though she’s one charming criminal, you’ll root for Luciana ‘Lucky’ Armstrong—a vibrant, sexy, full-blooded character—to get what she (really) deserves in life, which is for her luck to never run out.”
— 
LISA GABRIELE, bestselling author of The Winters

“[A] rollicking road-trip novel . . . With Lucky’s traumatic childhood with her conman father revealed in flashbacks, it’s no wonder the TV rights were sold to Disney with Stapley tapped to write the pilot. . . . This book club pick will no [doubt] lead to lively debates on duplicity, truth, luck, nature vs. nurture in child-rearing, and how to spot a con from a mile away.”
— 
Zoomer

“A page-turning novel . . . Stapley brings up interesting questions about punishment, redemption, and forgiveness, as the story unfolds in a delicious manner.
Lucky is a ride with a badass friend who just happens to be that much smarter and sneakier than anyone else around.”
— 
Quill & Quire

“A compelling and thrilling road-trip novel about a talented grifter whose past comes back to haunt her.”
—
