The Lucky One

From the authors website:

When U.S. Marine Logan Thibault finds a photograph of a smiling young woman half-buried in the dirt during his third tour of duty in Iraq, his first instinct is to toss it aside. Instead, he brings it back to the base for someone to claim, but when no one does, he finds himself always carrying the photo in his pocket. Soon Thibault experiences a sudden streak of luck—winning poker games and even surviving deadly combat that kills two of his closest buddies. Only his best friend, Victor, seems to have an explanation for his good fortune: the photograph—his lucky charm.

Back home in Colorado, Thibault can’t seem to get the photo—and the woman in it—out of his mind. Believing that she somehow holds the key to his destiny, he sets out on a journey across the country to find her, never expecting the strong but vulnerable woman he encounters in Hampton, North Carolina—Elizabeth, a divorced mother with a young son—to be the girl he’s been waiting his whole life to meet. Caught off guard by the attraction he feels, Thibault keeps the story of the photo, and his luck, a secret. As he and Elizabeth embark upon a passionate and all-consuming love affair, the secret he is keeping will soon threaten to tear them apart—destroying not only their love, but also their lives.

Filled with tender romance and terrific suspense, The Lucky One is Nicholas Sparks at his best—an unforgettable story about the surprising paths our lives often take and the power of fate to guide us to true and everlasting love.

My review:

Another great love story from Nicholas Sparks. I really fell in love with all the main characters except for the ex-husband. Thibault's story unfolds bit by bit. His past brings him to find the girl he believes to be his lucky charm. A great story of fate and destiny. The book had many twists and kept me guessing until the very end. You can't go wrong with Nicholas Sparks if you are a hopeless romantic!

  1. Congratulations on the Read-a-thon from another fellow 'Thonner and Wisconsinite!!! I had a great time, and while I didn't get quite as much done as I thought I would, I'm looking forward to next year. Don't know about you, but I'm feeling super sleepy today.

    I hope you catch up on sleep and everything else, and maybe I'll see you around the blogosphere!
