Pretty Woman by Fern Michaels

When Rosie Gardener married Kent Bliss, she had turned her back on her best friend,
Vickie Winters, who told her she was making a big mistake. Now, 3 years later, Rosie had her eyes opened to what Kent was really like. When he didn't show up for their anniversary dinner, she'd had enough, and kicked him out.

Shortly thereafter, she reads in the paper that Vickie is back in Savannah, and makes arrangements to speak to her. They pick up their business right where Vickie had left off, when she'd left town.

Rosie decides to go to work on her weight, which has ballooned during her marriage. Her housekeeper hires Jack Silver as a personal trainer for Rosie, and soon her weight is dropping. And her attraction for Silver is giving her a reason to keep going. He convinces her to train for a race that will happen in the fall, and she decides to gife it a go, and also decides it is time to file for divorce.

Someone, breaks into her home, not once, but at least twice, searching for the Lottery ticket that they think she has, which is worth Millions. Then her purse is searched, and a gun is taken from Jack's car, while they are canoeing at the river. She knows it is Kent, who suspects she has won the lottery, and wants his half, or maybe the whole thing.

This book is quite interesting,and builds to a surprise ending, at least to me.
