About the Book
At age thirty-eight, instead of socializing with Baltimore’s A-list, Lenora Stone photographs them for Baltimore Scene, a glossy magazine filled with beautiful people who, unlike Lenora, never have to worry about car trouble and overdue bills. Lately even things with her boyfriend Gerald haven’t been right. They’ve been together for three years but he can’t seem to ask the one question she’s been waiting to hear.

Then just when she thinks things can’t get worse, Lenora wins the jackpot in the Maryland lottery. In a heartbeat, all her dreams become possible. She quits her job and indulges her every desire—starting with a shiny, silver BMW and a million-dollar mansion. Gerald is finally ready to put a ring on her finger, and the city’s most exclusive women’s group is dying for her to join.

Yet as her life starts to come together, the things Lenora holds dear begin to fall apart. Has her world really changed for the better, or does fortune come with a heavy price?

Book Review
Lenora Stone is a 38 year old photographer who really loves her job, it’s her bitchy boss Dawna that is the negative. She has been sent out to a shoot a pictorial on the handsome and sexy Raymond Shearer and his crew for the magazine she works for. She arrives late and is unable to photograph her assignment. Sharks fly in more ways than one, but has to put up with Dawna’s nasty temper, even though it’s partially her fault that she was late.

Lenora’s life is a mess. She has ton’s of bills and a boyfriend Gerald, who won’t put a ring on it. By chance she picks up a lottery ticket and wins.

Finally she’s able to get rid of her debt and get her dream car, one better than her friends’ Alise’s. The Girlfriend s social club that she and her other friend Monica have been trying to get into for years suddenly want her, but still not Monica. Alise who has always been well of, gets kind of funky and distant. Gerald has finally “popped” the question but she is confused as to why now, is it the money? Sexy Ray has become her secret love, a man that she never thought she could have, But Ray has secrets of his own.

We’ve all heard the saying that money changes people, but in this story I was thinking the money changed the others not so much Lenora. I think she was able to do something’s she’s always wanted to do and “do” the man she found extremely appealing instead of the “same ole same”ole with distant Gerald. She was trying to get some of her wants, after struggling so hard for only her bare needs for so long. But then the tables turned

Great read, lots of provoking thoughts 5 stars.
