Lola’s Money by Rosanna Rae – Book Review
Have you ever dreamed of striking it rich or hitting the jackpot? Have you imagined how wonderful your life could be if you suddenly became an overnight millionaire?
Be careful what you wish for!
As Lola French discovers in Lola’s Money by Rosanna Rae, money does not necessarily buy happiness, and can actually bring with it a whole lot of heartbreak and headache!
At the very least, it’s a catalyst for change.
As you might imagine, Lola is shocked when she discovers she has won millions of dollars in the Lottery, and begins to imagine all of the ways in which her dreams might begin to become true.
The thing she does not anticipate, however, is the impact of the changes she cannot control, particularly the reactions from people – both those close to her and those who come out of the woodwork – as they discover her new-found status.
From the very start, Lola’s relationships falter. First, Lola and her live-in boyfriend go through an acrimonious break-up, then she turns down a date with a guy from work that she really likes because of the money.
Then there’s the jealous co-workers. Rather than deal with them, Lola decides to leave her job as a Financial Adviser in Edinburgh and to set sail on a Mediterranean cruise with her mother.
Before long, the two women find themselves pursuing romance on the high seas – and find themselves catapulted into a series of life-changing, dramatic and terrifying events that neither of them will ever forget!
If you’ve ever wondered what type of lives big lottery winners lead – if you’ve ever wondered what types of problems people who become rich overnight have – if you enjoy reading books about how money impacts human behavior – then you’ll enjoy Rosanna Rae’s latest novel, Lola’s Money!
I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.
