Featuring Your Next Weekend Read!
I’ve been exploring the Kindle Unlimited offers on Amazon, and I’ve not been disappointed! This has become an affordable way for me to feed my voracious book reading habit. For book reviewers like me, this is an excellent way to read books. It’s also a great way for authors to up their readership and still get compensated for the read. If you have your book available through Kindle Unlimited… thank you! Now, let me introduce you to a novel I absolutely loved! ❤
From the Author
Piper Seidel has one thing going for her—a red carnation given to her by Tommy Burnett in the tenth grade. It might have dried over the years, but it’s still her good luck charm. Losing it sets her life in a downward spiral, forcing her to return to her hometown where she comes face to face with her high school crush. The years have been kind to Tommy, who looks better than ever. Unfortunately, Piper is at her worst, continually embarrassing herself whenever he’s around. The only plus? Her long-time friend, Jack Rhodes, still lives in town. Since she last saw him, his legs have grown longer, his biceps thicker, and his shoulders broader. He was always the brother she never had, but now she can’t help noticing him in an unsisterly way. Jack is every bit as caring as he’s ever been—until her bad luck drives him away, maybe forever. Piper needs a new good luck charm, and fast, before she loses her final chance at happiness.Amazon.com
“No Such Luck,” introduces us to Piper Seidel, a reporter for a local newspaper. Piper is arrogant and thinks everything in the world revolves around her. She’s inpatient and ignores people, signifying she’s more important than they are. She also thinks nothing of verbally attacking her coworkers. In fact, she gets fired because she can’t get along with anybody. And this isn’t the first time she’s been fired! To make matters worse, she hasn’t talked to her best friend in two years, even though he calls regularly.
Now, without a job, Piper goes home early for the holidays to visit family and friends. She reconnects with her old high school boyfriend, Tommy Burnett, and her best friend, Jack Rhodes. Piper learns that when she slows down and listens, the answers to her life issues are right in front of her.
At first, I found Piper a hard character to like. But as you read along, the story develops into a light romance. As Piper changes, she pulls the reader into her new world. Troilo’s characters are well rounded and believable. Piper’s transformation mimics the changes I’ve seen in some of my friends when they realized they needed to grow up.
This is a lovely holiday read. I enjoyed Piper’s journey. Sometimes we all have to go back to our past before we can move forward.
