Release Date: April 25, 2015
Just as a huge financial scandal ejects Olivia Wheeler from her high-flying Manhattan job and high-society engagement, a silver Mercedes pulls up at lonely single-mother Rosie Dixon’s house with a cheque for one million pounds from the Premium Bonds. Two very different strokes of luck. And yet both women have more in common than they realize. While Olivia struggles with the humiliations of surviving in London broke and homeless, shy unassuming Rosie discovers that unexpected wealth arrives with its own mega-load of problems.
Can a career-obsessed workaholic find a passion for something earthier and warmer than cold hard cash? And can Rosie sift through envy and greed to discover true friends, true family and even true love?
Two strangers who've never met. Yet neither realises how each is affecting the other’s destiny or the places their paths touch and fates entwine.
But will they surmount the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune?
That is the million dollar question.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is about two women who seemingly have nothing in common. Olivia, a successful business woman, loses everything while Rosie, a struggling single mother wins a million pounds. The story is about both of their struggles and as I read I just kept wondering how and where their lives were going to intersect. There were tantalizing bits here and there, but no, not yet. Kept me glued to the book. I enjoyed both of their stories. Both had ups and downs and even found a bit of romance. I loved it.
