The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks
Logan Thiboult has never really seen himself as lucky, just a regular guy. After college, he followed his father's footsteps and joined the Marines serving three tours in Iraq where he watched many of his fellow Marines die during the call of duty.
While in Iraq, he comes across a picture of a beautiful girl and two guys while running. His friend called that picture a "lucky charm" and encourages him to seek out this girl if nothign else to thank her for being his lucky charm.
After a cross-country trek (on foot!) with his beloved dog Zeus, Logan finds her.
Beth is a single mom living with her grandmother who is recovering from a stroke. Together they run the family's kennel and dog training business when a man begins to help out and eventually becomes so much more...much to her ex-husband's dismay.
They all deserve to be happy, but will Beth understand why he came? Will her ex-husband leave them alone?
What I Thought:
Sparks is simply a wonderful author! I have enjoyed all of his books, this one is no exception.
This book seemed to be written with a movie in mind, because I think it would be a great one! Rumors are out on the internets about such a thing, but I couldn't fine a reliable source to say for sure.
While this isn't my favorite of Sparks' works, it is definitely a worthy read!
