    A uniquely one of a kind experience.

    The Lucky Ones by Tiffany Reisz was a uniquely one of a kind experience. I relished the writing style, and variety of genres that were woven together to create this seamless and profoundly written mystery. Allison receives a letter from her former foster brother, thirteen years after leaving their home on the Oregon Coast. Learning her foster dad, Dr Capello, a man of strength, virtuosity and unconditional love is on his death bed, she decides to return to her childhood home to say goodbye. Upon arriving to the coastal house, that was Allison’s home for years, she finds her past has begun to haunt her. Removed from the home after a fall and a bout of amnesia, she chose to move on and avoid thinking about that period of her life, until now. Back in the house, she begins to dig into the unanswered question of who may have wanted to bring her harm when she was just a child. Is she safe after all these years or could the person who wanted her gone still be out to get her? Allison rekindles her relationship with her foster siblings, as well as spends time with Dr Capello. As more questions arise, she begins to investigate unusual circumstances from many years past and what comes to light could change everything she thought she knew. She struggles with discovering who she can trust. It seems there may be some who prefer the secrets from their past remain buried, and they will stop at nothing to succeed. This book encompassed such an array of genres. There was plenty of mystery, suspense, and romance. Parts were so creepy I had a chill down my spine. Others were unexpected and shocking. One thing this book is not, is predictable. With all the different aspects mixed together, by the end I was left pondering my thoughts and feelings based on the unforeseen turn of events. It pushed deep down, was thought provoking, and intriguing. While I tore through this book in one day, I would say this was not a thrilling page turner. This book goes to a much deeper level. It is a stimulating mystery that will keep compelling you forward, in a desire to unravel the astonishing secrets of before. 4.5 stars for The Lucky Ones

    4.5 stars - Suspenseful and full of twists!

    "Too many secrets in this house. So many they were starting to feel like...Lies." The blurb of The Lucky Ones was one that really piqued my interest. I had no idea what to expect, but I was ready for a mysterious ride. I loved how the secrets were revealed piece by piece. The author did such an incredible job in keeping the reader in suspense and guessing throughout the book. I had theories as to what happened to Allison but was proven wrong each time. I love it when a story is unpredictable and when an author can get me to sit on the edge of my seat. I was so hooked to the story that I read the last 40% of the book in one sitting (I was done at 4AM). There was no way I could put the book down to get some sleep. "She'd known nothing but love here, nothing but kindness. But someone must have left a door open a crack and evil had snuck in when no one was looking." The 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 all had a very shocking past. It sometimes was very difficult for me to contain my tears while I was reading this book. This book was suspenseful, mysterious, sweet, emotional, heartbreaking, and very dark at times. Each and every character was very unique and had a very intriguing past. I was on a very long emotional rollercoaster, and I didn't want to get off it. I do wish there was an epilogue because I am really curious to see how everyone is doing. I also want to mention that the cover is beautiful and fits the story perfectly. I am looking forward to what Tiffany Reisz has in story for us next.

    Atmospheric, eerie, and darkly romantic!

    The Lucky Ones is a menacing thrill ride that takes you on a journey into the life of the lonely, determined Allison as she unravels all the secrets from her past and confronts all the ghosts that still haunt her. The prose is tight and edgy. The characters are scarred, secretive, and troubled. And the plot is an intense, suspenseful tale filled with familial drama, chemistry, mental illness, abuse, deception, adultery, forbidden love, and murder. Overall, The Lucky Ones is a unique, sinister romance that explores the ethical and moral fine line between right and wrong. And even though it isn’t my favourite book from Reisz and may not be everyone’s cup of tea there is no denying she has an incredible imagination and can spin a gritty tale that intrigues, surprises, and shocks like no other.
