If you like romance, please raise your hand. I mean, who doesn’t, right? Now, a show of hands for highly likable main characters? Of course. A crazy plot line that keeps you on your toes? Yes. Fireworks in (and out of) the bedroom. Double yes. If you enjoy all those things, then you should probably read Lucky in Love by Kristen Brockmeyer.
Want to know more about what I thought?
I generally don’t start a new book until I finish the one I’m currently reading, but when I read the first line of the summary for Lucky in Love: Lucky McFarlane… isn’t. Well, let’s just say the book I was reading was immediately relegated to my virtual nightstand. Because with names like Lucky McFarlane and Chance Atkins there’s bound to be some trouble, am I right?
I like trouble.
And, oh, was there trouble… lots of it. Lucky in Love was a fun read from the get go. If I wasn’t laughing at her, I was smiling at the whacky situations she finds herself in. Except when I was biting my nails. Yes, except then. Did I mention there is also an element of surprise! intrigue! danger! alongside all the mayhem? Now, granted, there are some twists and turns that *might* not be likely to unfold in real life the way they do in the book, but that’s not the point. Lucky’s undeniable charm is the point, and the unfinished business with her ex boyfriend is the hook.
Hilarious and thoroughly entertaining, the writing flowed well and I finished the book in just a couple of days. I could have easily kept reading straight through to the end after starting it, but, you know, kids… husbands… those stupid little things called dishes.
What I’m trying to say is if quirky romances are your jam, I highly recommend Kristen Brockmeyer’s Lucky in Love.
