The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks

I haven't been the most ardent Nicholas Sparks fan. Don't get me wrong, I think he writes touching and romantic stories, but I've always felt the pace was too slow. Maybe I'm getting more patient because I loved, The Lucky One. It's a really touching story with fabulous characters. If you haven't read it, I would recommend it. 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. What I liked: A fabulous romance, mostly clean (they do have premarital relations but the author doesn't describe it), great plot. What I didn't like: There were still parts that were a bit slow for me, where I was thinking, "I know how to make homemade ice cream, get back to the story." Audience: Adult
