We meet twenty five year old Allison Lamarque just as her six year relationship with Cooper McQueen, as his mistress is coming to an end. The last six years of her life has been spent at his beck and call. Cooper was completely honest with Allison and told her about an unplanned and unexpected pregnancy, he would soon have a new baby in his life.
"Lovers lied to protect the loved one. No love to protect meant no need for lies."
Allison receives a letter in the mail from her foster brother, Roland. The only man that she ever considered her father, Dr. Capello is dying. She has not heard from or seen anyone from her childhood in thirteen long years. She lived with Dr. Capello, his adopted son Roland, Deacon and adopted daughter Thora for four years. They lived on the beach beside the ocean on the coast of Oregon, in a house called The Dragon House. Allison would have been adopted as well by Dr. Capello, that was the plan, but something mysterious with an air of evil happened to her at the Dragon House. Something that was never discussed, or explained in detail to Allison. She was taken away to live with her only living relative, an elderly aunt, in a retirement home.
"The companions of our childhood always possess a certain power over our minds which hardly any later friend can obtain."
Allison returns to Oregon, to see her childhood family and home once again. She owes it to Dr. Capello, her foster siblings but most importantly, herself. She has always had burning questions about that part of her life. She deserves to know what really happened to her in that house. She had a real family and felt loved there, but the strangest part to me, is that she has no memory of that fateful day when she was ripped away from all that was comforting and familiar to her.
"She was woven so easily and so quickly back into the fabric of life at The Dragon that she hadn't noticed it happening. No one remarked on it. No one treated her like a houseguest. perhaps the cord had never been broken between her and them. Perhaps all it took was one quick tug, one little stitch to weave her back into the fold."
I have read and loved all of this authors books. This one is shrouded in mystery, there is evil lurking around the corners, and it kept me guessing right up til the end about how it all was going to turn out. That is one of the many reasons I love her books. They are by no means predictable, it certainly is not the same old plot that we read numerous times in different books. Tiffany Reisz is in a genre all on her own, and she is untouchable. She is not afraid to branch out, and I just know that she has many more surprises yet to come.
The character development blew me away, and while there were parts of the story that kind of bordered on creepy, it never crossed over completely. This review was originally posted on (un)Conventional Bookviews
*I received a free copy of The Lucky Ones from Harlequin MIRA via Netgalley. This has in no way influenced my voluntary review, which is honest and unbiased*
The Lucky Ones gave me goosebumps. Both the good kind and the even better kind... Reisz' writing keeps getting better and better, and this incredibly well-written, character-driven story left me with all the feels.
Review - (un)Conventional Bookviews
The Lucky Ones starts with a low for Allison, as McQueen leaves her after several years of having her as his secret lover. However, on the same day, she also receives a letter. From someone she used to call her brother. Thirteen years ago. In that letter, she learns that her almost-adoptive father is fatally ill. And she decides to go back to the dragon - the house where she was happy for the first time after her mother's death.
There is so much that is unresolved in The Lucky Ones! There are three of the children who lived in the house when Allison was there. These three were adopted by the good doctor. As soon as Allison arrives, she is inundated with memories. Some she had completely repressed. Others had been part of helping her move forward in her life. However, not all the memories she have are good.
Between the doctor and the three remaining orphans, everything is fine on the surface. But as soon as Allison starts to look a little beneath that surface, there is some ugliness. Secrets. Hidden agendas. And some taboo relationships. The Lucky Ones managed to mix family secrets, redemption, romance, mystery and a bit of suspense into a deliciously gothic package.
