THE LUCKY ONES is the latest Mystery novel from Tiffany Reisz. “The Lucky Ones” are the seven children that were taken in by Dr. Vincent Capello to live with him at his beach house. Allison is the youngest of the bunch and although much time has passed since she has left, an unexpected letter from her stepbrother brings back the memories and mysteries of the past.
There is no doubt that this novel has a mysterious vibe to it. And although I am a love of Mysteries, I wasn’t quite sure how I felt about this novel. But let me first start with that I liked about this book. There’s no doubt that Reisz writes well. I’m especially a fan of the way she is able to create interesting characters. Not only are they intriguing, but their pasts are just as mysterious as the rest of the book. There are a lot of layers to her characters and I love see how each one comes alive through the pages. Another thing I really still love about her writing is the banter. Whether it’s dialogue between the main characters or even secondary characters, Reisz always does a great job of creating a lot of fun between them.
Now for me the problem with this book lie in the fact that I felt like the author couldn’t really decide whether she wanted this book to be a Mystery or a Romance. I know that there are plenty of books that combine the two successfully, but this one had some rough patches. I do think the mystery aspect is interesting, but I don’t always feel like it was carried out well. I would’ve liked to see a better balance but I did enjoy the book and will continue to read Reisz’s stories.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
