I'm buying the next book in the series to see if Dorothy finally puts her foot down when her relatives all have ideas for benefitting themselves by spending HER lottery winnings. She's really on a spree at this point.

Chick Lit this is not this is a story about a real woman! The first book in any series is always a curious read; you know the writer is just beginning to lay the foundations and in Avarice both the writer and Dottie are just beginning to find their feet. Carmichael speaks of her writing starting out as a form of therapy and I get that… Dorothy is full of all the real emotions and insecurities of a woman on the wrong side of forty. The narrative rambles along with a soft Irish lilt and you cannot help but warm to Dottie, the majority of the narrative is written in the first person but Carmichael breaks it up by sharing Dorothy’s personal emails with her friends and I would say that one of the main things that has stood out for me is that if anything Avarice is a celebration of friendship. In terms of readership the finger has to be directed at mature women and yes it is a female read but it’s not chick lit! This is one for those of us who like our female leads to be determined, because Dorothy Lyle is a strong minded woman with opinions, wisdom and real life experience. Every forty something female needs to read this, especially if you are a mother… there are so many cast away comments that you will immediately identify with, it’s really is comforting to know you are not alone. The Miracles and Millions saga is one woman’s adventure when she became rich beyond the dreams of avarice, this is book one and certainly worth dipping into! I am certainly tempted to read on, I need to spend more time getting to know Horace the hairy bear!
