It's everyone's dream to win Lotto and we all say that it would not change anything. Lucy thought that too, but having $70 million brings with it a lot of worries. Lucy has just met Max who runs a summer camp for children, she has a job she loves as a reporter for the local paper, she has a best friend Kris and lives a simple life, visiting her grandmother in the nursing home.
She is estranged from her mother, but when her mother reappears, she is in turmoil. Kathleen has obviously done some rese

"Lotto Lucy" is the third book in the James Bay novels. I've reviewed the first two books and while one was okay for me (Fatty Patty) and one I really liked (Home Fires) but out of the three novels, I think that I liked "Lotto Lucy" the best. While this book is also a romance like the previous two books, it has a lot more than just a good romantic story going for it.

I have now read all 3 books in this series and I have to say it is one of the best series of books I have had the chance to review. This book is very well written and will have to hooked from the very beginning. I am sure I will be reading this book again in the near future and if there are any other books in this series I will be reading them. I highly recommend this book (and this book series).

I loved FATTY PATTY and HOME FIRES and couldn't wait to read the third book in the series. LOTTO LUCY did not disappoint. Lucy's "voice" in the story grabbed me right from the beginning and I sympathized with her on issues like her absent mother, deteriorating grandmother and painful childhood. I wanted her to find some happiness after all that anguish.

What I really love most about the James Bay novels, though, is the "community" shown in each book. There is such an interesting cast of supportin

I loved this book. The way the author gives the characters in her books both the good and the bad of being human really fascinates me. The internal dialogues they have sound so much like the back and forth I do in my own head. They know the right thing to do but are they going to be willing to do it, because as we all know the right thing is so often the harder thing to do. I can hardly wait for the next book!

Love of or Lack of Money Can Change You

Lucy Carter, Lila Carter, Winnie Carter, Max Graham and the many other characters in this story are proof that having or not having money does change you. To her credit, Lucy Carter eventually realized her error and made amends in her. Life.
