After U.S. Marine Logan Thibault finds a photograph of a smiling young woman buried in the dirt during his tour of duty in , he experiences a sudden streak of luck--winning poker games and even surviving deadly combat. Only his best friend, Victor, seems to have an explanation for his good fortune: the photograph--his lucky charm.

Back home in , Thibault can't seem to get the woman in the photograph out of his mind and he sets out on a journey across the country to find her. But Thibault is caught off guard by the strong attraction he feels for the woman he encounters in - Elizabeth, a divorced mother -- and he keeps the story of the photo, and his luck, a secret. As he and Elizabeth embark upon a passionate love affair, his secret soon threatens to tear them apart--destroying not only their love, but also their lives.

Filled with tender romance and terrific suspense, THE LUCKY ONE is an unforgettable story about the surprising paths our lives often take and the power of fate to guide us to true and everlasting love.

    I love Spark's books. He shows amazing depth to his characters that pulls you in. His talent in writing a love story is amazing. I have read many of his books and each time I get totally wrapped up in his story. I read this book in a couple of days, stealing as much time as I could until I hit the height of the literal storm and the tumult of the characters. I couldn't put it down. Especially the end. Thank you for your wonderful talent in developing a marvelous story.

    This book was absolutely fantastic! Though Zac Efron is a definite cutie, the book was better than book. Although, the book was better than the movie... until the very ending. The movie's ending was better than the book's, but I love them both so much! Thank you Nicholas Sparks for being such and AMAZING author!
  • Another True Sparks Novel

    By Luzikl15
    This novel has everything you would expect from a Nicholas Sparks novel. It's another tragic love story with pretty predictable outcomes. But we all know that going into one of these novels, and we read them anyway. We like the simple love story. We like the couple that overcomes adversity. This wasn't my favorite Sparks novel, but I enjoyed the military backstory of it all and who couldn't fall in love with Logan's dog?
