I'm a sucker for a love story. I'm not into the steamy Harlequin novels but I like your basic love story. I always pick up any new Nicholas Sparks novel. Although I do wait for it to come out in softcover.
The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks is a very easy book to read. The story just flows and you'll have a hard time putting it down. I often read in the bath tub and find that I've been reading so long, the bath water went cold.
The Lucky One is a story about a U.S. Marine Logan Thibault who finds a picture of a woman that brings him luck and keeps him safe during the war. Once he returns home, certain circumstances come about and he feels he must find the woman in the picture. Logan sets off on foot with his trusty dog across the county.
As the story progresses, Logan meets the woman in the picture in North Carolina. Her name is Elizabeth and she has a young son named Ben. In fact, Logan ends up working for her Nana at her dog training facility. I don't want to give away any more than this. You'll have to read the book to find out the rest.
The book is written from numerous perspectives and it makes for an interesting read. I love getting into the heads of each of the characters.
If you are a fan of Nicholas Sparks, you won't be dissapointed with this book. In fact, you may not be able to put it down. Have fun reading.
