About The Lucky Ones

Print Length: 368 pages

Publisher: MIRA (February 13, 2018)

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.

My Review:

The Lucky Ones is the newest work from author Tiffany Reisz and from the synopsis alone, I knew I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book.  Well, I was NOT disappointed.  From start to finish I was glued to each page and riveted until the very end. Just fabulous!

This story follows a now twenty-something Allison as she returns to the only home she ever remembered loving when she was an orphaned child. She only spent a brief time in the home with a foster parent, Dr. Capello, and the other children who lived in the beautiful, almost magical home, but the time she did spend there have left an indelible mark on her life. Her time spent there was too short and ended in quite a tumultuous way, also leaving an indelible mark on her life. Now, as Dr. Capello nears his final days, she decides to return and try to recapture some of the love she felt back then and also to try to put the pieces of her sudden departure together.

This is also a trip not only to revisit the past, but to try to find a new purpose in her life after her six-year relationship ended. Almost as if fate had something to do with the timing, Allison embarks on a trip that will also leave its own indelible mark…

From the very beginning, the mystery surrounding Allison and her past was beyond intriguing. Once we arrive back at that childhood home, pieces of a very strange puzzle start to come into play and the reader is left to piece them together as the story progresses.  Meeting the other children who lived with Allison at the time, all now adults, and picking up on little clues here and there had me convinced there had been something sinister going on in those earlier years of Allison’s life.  Sinister but not necessarily evil. It’s that lingering perception as I read that had me glued to every page and not wanting to put this book down. I wanted to know more about these characters, their backgrounds, what the mystery about all of them was. I kept getting the feeling that the saying “if it seems to good to be true, it usually is” was going to be a theme for this book, and was it ever!

I don’t want to give anything away, so if this review seems vague, I apologize, but this is a journey every reader needs to experience without having any moment spoiled!

If you’re looking for a totally consuming mystery with interesting characters and a story line you won’t forget, this needs to be on your shelf!  Thank you, Ms. Reisz, for a phenomenal read!
