Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This four-week PW bestseller portrays the conflicts and quandries of a single mother who wins $60 million in the lottery. Aug.
Library Journal
Claire Goddard, a single mother barely making ends meet, wins $60 million in the lottery. Money changes people, of course, and Claire is no exception. She and her daughter, Emma, buy an estate, designer clothing, two luxury cars, and a cruise with the first installment. During the cruise, the Goddards meet the Eigers. Quentin Eiger runs a multimillion-dollar cosmetics firm. Brix, his son, works for him. Claire and Emma find themselves attracted by the lifestyle of the rich and famous until the seams begin to show. Claire must realign her values in order to pull Emma back from the brink of disaster. Margaret Whitton gives an extremely polished reading. Her ability to distinguish voices by age and sex is laudable, making for easy listening and comprehension. There are some narrative gaps, but the crux of the story is clear. For all public libraries and most general collections.-Jodi L. Israel, Westwood, Mass.
Ilene Cooper
Judith Michael, the husband-and-wife writing team that has won its own pot of gold in the best-seller sweepstakes, examines what happens when someone wins big. Here it's 35-year-old Claire Goddard, a package designer bland in both looks and attitude, who sees her ship come in. What a difference a winning lottery ticket makes, especially if its worth 60-million dollars! Since this is a shop-and-sex novel, Claire, the single mother of 17-year-old Emma, doesn't just buy a bowling alley and put the rest of the dough in savings bonds. First, she "spends": house, cars, clothes, and much-needed makeover. Then she takes Emma and her newly acquired major domo on an Alaskan cruise. Uh-oh: troubled waters. Claire and Emma meet a bad-boy father-son duo, Quentin and Brix Eiger (With names like that, you'd expect them to be good?), who are soon on the make for the mother-daughter combo. Brix has more success with Emma than Quentin has with Claire, but Brix turns out to be a nut case as well as rich and handsome, and he almost does Emma in so she won't spill the beans about a company secret. Maybe because of the fairy-tale premise, this seems even more lightweight than some of the Michael team's other efforts. Despite a headache-inducing amount of moralizing about What Money Really Means, there's not much to hang your hat on here: the plot's predictable, and the characters are made of paper. Claire, in particular, is a relatively colorless heroine, even after her makeover. Still, Judith Michael is on a winning streak, so there's no reason to think this won't generate the same demand as its predecessors.
