The Lucky One is a story of a man who’s lucky charm in war, turns out to be the love of his life. The book is full of love and passion, but it’s not all romance. There are moments of suspense and worry, and all I can say is that I loved it.
Logan Thibault is on duty in Iraq, where after going for a run he finds a picture of a woman buried in the dirt. He realizes someone must be missing it, but after a week of no one claming it, he decides to keep it. After this decision, he goes on a “lucky streak”, staying alive in deadly combat, winning poker games. He didn’t have an explanation for any of it, but his best friend Victor did- the picture was his lucky charm, it was good fortune. Victor believed she was his destiny, and that Logan needed to thank her for keeping him alive.
When Logan returned home to Colorado, he didn’t believe what Victor had said, but for some reason he couldn’t get the woman in the photograph out of his head. And with that, he decides to journey across the country to find her. When he finds the woman in the photo, Elizabeth, he is blown away by the attraction he feels towards her and decides to keep the reason his there a secret. Elizabeth and Logan fall in love, and face many trials in doing so, but the one thing that tears them apart is when the truth finally comes out about the photo.
