    Best book I have read in a long time.

    This novel is definitely for adults only, but is a very engaging story, with some elements of truth regarding people and relationships; though maybe a bit idealistic at the end, but hey, isn't that what people want? This story should definitely be made into a movie!

    Good Book

    Whitney Gaskell is one of my favorite writers of all times. Her books are gripping from the first page and laugh-out-loud hilarious. Every story has great characters, heartwarming plots, and hilarious dialoge. You'll fall in love with the characters from the beginning and want to read every book she has ever written.

    Only gave it a 4 out of 5, was my least favorite of all her books so far....but still a cute book and a good read

    One of the best books I've read!

    Have you ever had such a bad day that you wish that you could run away? Or, have you ever wished that you could win the lottery and be set for life? If you have, then this book is for you. Lucy Parker is having the worst day of her life. She gets fired from her job, her car breaks down and she finds out that her live-in boyfriend, Elliott, is cheating on her. Feeling down, she visits her friend Maisie to clear her head. While at Maisie's, they get on the subject of lottery tickets and the probability of winning. Later in the day, Lucy stops in a gas station and decides on a whim to buy two tickets. The next morning, when she gets out the morning paper to read it , she discovers that she has the winning lottery ticket of 87 million dollars. Deciding to keep her winnings a secret for now, she goes to pick up her money at the lottery office and doesn't tell anyone where she's going. In the next few days, Lucy's life becomes a media circus, when a too nosey reporter finds out about her winning the money right after getting fired from her job. Dying to escape, Lucy gets a call from her college roommate, Hayden, to get away with her and go to Palm Beach, where Hayden's parents own a house. There, after changing her appearance to throw off the press, she meets some interesting guys and has a blast with Hayden. But sooner, rather than later, Lucy figures out that money doesn't solve all of her problems and makes it hard to figure out who she can trust.<BR/><BR/>Good Luck is a highly engrossing and entertaining book. Lucy is a love able character, who is down on her luck and you can't wait to see her get away from all the bad press. I find Ms. Gaskell's writing flawless and never boring. This is the first book that I've picked up by her, and I can't wait to see what else she has in store for future books. You can visit her website to find out more.

    Samanthas begining chap 1

    Sam heard groans,grunts,yelling,screaming,gasping, she felt hands hold her own. Then nothing...hands hitting her...someone proding at her. She heard her self panting and groaning like a b.tch. but she couldnt control her self. She felt a d.ck slide into her c.nt. she screamed and struggled unable to escape. It seemed like a unescapeable night mare. Her whole body hurt like living death. she finally at last mercifully fell unconsios. * * *
    Sam yawned and stretched her arms her whole body ached. " maybe tessas home. I probaly caught a cold." She opened her eyes but she wasnt at home. She was in a random hotel room. Her clothing was scattered aroud the room. Her skin blistered red and she was naked. She groaned trying to clear her foggy mind. She sat up and the covers were on the floor. Her wallet had been searched and emptyed. Her goden neckalce was gone. So was her whole purse and bag but her phone was there. She looked around and there was a video on youtube. She played the video. The scream was black the fadded in. Sam gasped and dropped her phone. The video showed her layin in getting her vir.gin.ity tooken. She continued and the was talking " look at this little **** ****** ******** was **** **** drunk and know this **** is getting **** like a *******" then it showed her haveing a or.gas.m. sam colapsed on te bed and started crying a storm. She hitt the pillows and threw them around te room. She screamed he hate and noticed a tatoo on he for arm tat said " little bi.tch took a beatling" tht was te last straw. She got dressed and snuck out. She looked around and couldnt find er masarati. She stormed down the roan her blode hair swirling behind her. She goto ti the local bar and spoted her black masarati. She got insde and hit the gas. He sped down the road and straight to the police. She kicked open the doors yelled at the attendences for a search on her tattoo she complned that she just got r.ped and was out in youtube...the cheif a girl was understanding an took her under her wing..... to be continued.

    Lucy makes the tale intriguing

    In Florida Andrews Prep Principal Dr. Johnson fires her because lazy student Matt Forrester accused her of sexual harassment misconduct. Angry at the false charges that her boss accepts without investigating, Lucy Parker explodes. She has taught literature there for a decade and was teacher of the year two years ago. Her only crime was failing a student who deserved the poor grade. A revelation occurs that Matt¿s wealthy parents threatened legal action against the school if Lucy is not fired.<BR/><BR/>Lucy needs to escape her troubles as she knows the accusation will follow her to any school she applies for employment even as her dilapidated Volvo dies. However, she buys a lottery ticket only to come home to see her husband Elliot in bed with a blonde. The media exposes the Forrester charge so a depressed Lucy, after winning $87 million in the Florida lottery, decides to escape so she heads to Palm Beach where her college buddy Hayden lives. He allows her to stay and gives her a makeover that everyone says makes her gorgeous and glamorous; everyone except Mal, who insists her previous wholesome look, was prettier.<BR/><BR/>Talk about a negative streak even with the lottery win (more than Melvin and the Bluenotes¿ Bad Luck or Short in Pure Luck), Lucy assumes she is bottomed out each time until the next fall from grace occurs. The money enables her to have some flexibility but even she wonders whether she it will change her along the lines of Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? The school incident has already done that as she is cynical instead of idealistic. Lucy makes the tale intriguing.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner
