"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Noah, the hero is suffering from migraines after he’s hit with a ball in the head. He’s a big shot baseball player who visits the small town where Tabitha, his ex-girlfriend/lover of sorts grew up. He ends up meeting her sister, Maggie, a café owner and baker. She loves her small town life and everything about it. She isn’t too thrilled to meet Noah, who seems to be in love with her flighty sister. You soon find out that’s not the case (thank you for not taking that silly trope and running with it into the ground.).
Noah decides to remain in Sand Point for a while. He ends up buying a fixer upper of a house close by. He also tries to get on Maggie’s good side, not because he wants to get in touch with the elusive Tabitha, but because he really likes Maggie. She, in turn, also likes Noah and they start to have a little romance. It’s more of a slow courtship between the two. Maggie’s best friend Cal isn’t happy about Noah. Could Cal have feelings for Maggie? Or maybe he’s hiding another secret involving Tabitha who suddenly shows up out of the blue.
Getting Lucky is a feel good romance. Noah and Maggie are wonderful characters. The romance here is very believable. Noah and Maggie’s attraction, and steps to act on it was enjoyable to read. Beth is becoming one of my favorite contemporary romance authors who can complete with any of the big time traditionally published authors writing the same type of settings and couples.
If you’re looking for a fresh new author, try Beth Bolden and The Lucky Charm and Getting Lucky.
I fell in love with Noah Fox in The Lucky Charm and I was super excited to find out he would be having his own book. I needed to know how he was doing after what happened in book one. At first glance Noah was a pretty boy womanizer but in reality he is so much more. I really enjoyed getting to peel back the layers of him in this book and getting to really know him. Sweet, sexy, baseball player. What more could you ask for?
Maggie May is such a great loving character. You can't help but love her. She is down to earth and normal. She is the type of character you instantly connect with. She owns and runs a café in the small town of Sand Point. She grew up there and loves everything about the town. I did too. I loved how warm and inviting everyone was and just the small town feel you get.
This is the story of Noah and Maggie. You haven't met Maggie before but you have met someone she knows. You really do need to read book one to understand what I mean by that. I don't want to give away any spoilers. I hate the person they mutually know but love how it brought them together.
Overall, this was a great book. I enjoyed how much better this book flowed compared to The Lucky Charm. This book wasn't nearly as long yet you got everything out of it that you could want. There is a little drama that happens but overall it is a sweet, fun read. You also get a glimpse in to how Jack and Izzy are doing after their book ended. I love catching up with them.
I hope Beth continues this series because I really enjoy it. I would love if she gave Noah and Maggie another book, I want more of their story. I am not ready to say goodbye to them yet.
If I condense this wonderful writing to one important characteristic it is quality. It is far more of a book and narrative than its peers than at least 90% of the other romance found. Simply put just look at the page count and know there isn't any filler in the story.
If your looking for good writing and story you have found it here.
