'Holly Caulfield has won the Irish National Lottery and sets in motion a plan to save the village of Abbeyglen. But who would have thought that giving money away could be so difficult?
With a resident’s association that’s clamouring for more and more money, an old lady who’s decided that a dream cruise is in her grasp and a couple who may not want that dream wedding after all, Holly’s finding it hard to keep it together!
With a new love interest and an ex-husband hot on her heels, it’s up to Holly to figure out what can truly make her happy.'
So I have to say this is one of the longest books I have read in a while, it has 63 Chapters and an epilogue but I must say do not let this put you off. This book is really good. I will admit I did find it hard at first to get into the book, for some reason I just couldn't get gripped. Though as the chapters went on I soon found myself gripped in Holly's story. This book/ story is easy to read and you soon find yourself going from chapter 1 to chapter 4 in one sitting. The chapters are (I believe) on the small side but this just means that you soon find yourself flying through the book.
Holly as a character has a very generous nature and is very selfless. Reading about her journey from winning the lottery to working out how to spend the money was thought provoking making me wonder what would I do? The journey has its pitfalls, but it also has some very funny moments that will have you laughing.
Let me tell you a little bit about the Author B R Maycock (Berni to all of us). When she isn't dreaming isn't dreaming up leads for romantic comedies you can find her ingesting books for her blog, in particular chick lit, romantic comedies and thrillers. You can also find her playing footie or watching Marvel, DC or Star Wars movies and cartoons. Berni lives in Co. Westmeath, Ireland with her brilliantly out there husband Keith and their four epic little men. Her debut 'It started with a Snub' and Christmas romantic comedy 'Snowday' are available now on Amazon. Berni has one goal and that's simply to make readers smile and/ or laugh.
Overall I enjoyed this book immensely to the point that I felt a little bit lost after finishing it. Once I was gripped with this book I was in love with everything and the rest of the book flew by way too soon. However I cheered up when I got to the end and found out that this book is actually the first one in a series! The second book is out in May and I can't wait to read it. Check out Pushing Her Luck and get your copy here. Now I have a question for you guys, what would you do if you won the lottery?
Until Next Time
