We are thrilled to share this new release from Tiffany Reisz – The Lucky Ones! As a huge fan of hers, I was so excited to read this book and Ms. Reisz did not disappoint! Twists and turns and love, this book has it all! I hope you’ll check out my review!
They called themselves “the lucky ones.” They were seven children either orphaned or abandoned by their parents and chosen by legendary philanthropist and brain surgeon Dr. Vincent Capello to live in The Dragon, his almost magical beach house on the Oregon Coast. Allison was the youngest of the lucky ones living an idyllic life with her newfound family…until the night she almost died, and was then whisked away from the house and her adopted family forever.
Now, thirteen years later, Allison receives a letter from Roland, Dr. Capello’s oldest son, warning her that their father is ill and in his final days. Allison determines she must go home again and confront the ghosts of her past. She’s determined to find out what really happened that fateful night–was it an accident or, as she’s always suspected, did one of her beloved family members try to kill her?
But digging into the past can reveal horrific truths, and when Allison pieces together the story of her life, she’ll learns the terrible secret at the heart of the family she once loved but never really knew.
A vivid and suspenseful tale of family, grief, love—and the dark secrets that bind everything together—Tiffany Reisz’s latest is enthralling to the final page.
Tiffany Reisz is one of those authors that for me, just creates magic with her worlds. I always feel as if I’m transported into the world that these characters are in, no matter what the story line and I feel the same way about The Lucky Ones. This book was different, it was mysterious and sometimes disturbing and at other times romantic. There is a weirdness to this story that yes made me uncomfortable at times, but wow does it make a great journey! Tiffany Reisz does a fantastic job of showing how different a romance/love story can be!
Allison spent some of her childhood living in foster care in a house on the coast that looked like a dragon. She had foster siblings that she loved and Dr. Capello, her foster father, took care of kids who didn’t seem to have anyone else. But then a mysterious accident that almost kills Allison has her living with an older aunt, never hearing from her foster father or siblings again. That is until, years later, she receives a letter from her ‘brother’ informing her that their father is dying. She reluctantly returns to Oregon and the dragon house, not only to say goodbye to Dr. Capello but also to try to figure out what happened to her all those years ago.
Oh, I loved this story. It didn’t always make sense to me and sometimes it shocked me but WOW what a journey. There are twists and turns and holy crap moments for sure. It’s not a traditional romance but there is a love story here, one with so many layers. As Allison, Roland and the other ‘siblings’ learn the truth about themselves and their foster father it will reveal more than they may have ever wanted to know. This is one of those stories that will stay with me and I will definitely read again, there is just that much to it! Thank you Tiffany Reisz for another book that makes me think, makes me love and tests my comfort level!
