The Windfall App - A Fun Summer Mystery

Winning the lottery would be an amazing good thing, right?   For Marina all of her problems seem like they will be solved when she wins the mega jackpot in the new popular lotto, she never could have predicted how completely it will change her life.

I was given a copy of The Windfall App by Teresa Richards in exchange for a honest review.

The Book
Marina Berghman is a classical piano prodigy with parents who’ve had her life mapped out since she was in diapers. But their plan leaves no room for her secret love of alternative rock, or Sean, the edgy guitarist who recently moved to town. 

When Marina buys a lottery ticket on her eighteenth birthday via the new Windfall app, she expects it to be nothing more than a rite of passage. But she wins—the grand prize of five thousand dollars a day, for life. Suddenly given the means to break free from a life she never felt in control of, she’s quick to cut her family ties and turn her back on everything she knows.

But her lottery win was no lucky break. Her prize comes with strings attached, and Marina soon finds herself at the center of someone else’s life or death game. When she discovers evidence linking her dad to the intrigue, she turns to Sean for help. But he’s harboring secrets of his own.

Now Marina must sort out who to trust and who’s pulling the strings, before her prize turns into a noose.

My Review
  I really enjoyed this book.  If it was a movie, it feels like one where a lot of suspenseful music would be playing in the background.   Things appeared good, but you as the reader just feel this sense of foreboding that the main character seems to not fully realize.  It was fun trying to guess and piece together what was going to really happen along the way, and I was not able to figure it all out!   I love the unique background of the main character and the way the author described the book's setting in San Francisco, it made me really want to visit the city and I felt like I was getting a VIP guided tour of the great spots to hit while reading.
  This is a perfect summer read that will keep you turning the pages wondering how it is all going to turn out.  This is also a clean book free from graphic language or imagery.
