Delighted to share the news of the lastest release by Lucinda E. Clarke..a psychological mystery – When Polly Won The Lottery
About the book
Polly London was found on the steps of a polyclinic in London when she was only a few hours old. She was approaching thirty when she received a text telling her she had won over £150 million in the national lottery.
A whole new world opened up, but would it change her for better or for worse?
How do you react to winning a fortune? Do you keep it a secret or shout from the rooftops?
Polly did both, with alarming consequences. From that moment, her life took two separate paths, but at every step of the way, she was unaware of a shadowy figure that followed her all over the world.
Who was he and what did he want?
This is a book with a difference, with an ending you’ll never expect!
One of the early reviews for the book
Winning a lottery must be everybody’s secret dream, even if, like me, they rarely enter one. I took a peep at Poppy, who was leaping about all over the place yelling about her £150,000,000 – just the way I absolutely wouldn’t if my winnings were more than £10 – and retired to the comparative calmness of Pollyann.
Dougie kept niggling. Where did he fit? He had whole chapters… The end of Pollyann… and I could resist Polly no longer, and Lucinda Clarke is 100% correct when she describes her as a loud, sassy, risk-taker, but she is fun.
So, basically, I read When Polly Won the Lottery twice, intrigued, fascinated, positively captivated, and I still didn’t see the end coming!
If you want “different”, this book is a must-have. It is anyway; I only bought it because I loved Amie’s African adventures, and I spent happy hours playing with it!
