They called themselves “the lucky ones”
They were seven children either orphaned or abandoned by their parents and chosen by legendary philanthropist and brain surgeon Dr. Vincent Capello to live in The Dragon, his almost magical beach house on the Oregon Coast. Allison was the youngest of the lucky ones living an idyllic life with her newfound family…until the night she almost died, and was then whisked away from the house and her adopted family forever.
Now, thirteen years later, Allison receives a letter from Roland, Dr. Capello’s oldest son, warning her that their father is ill and in his final days. Allison determines she must go home again and confront the ghosts of her past. She’s determined to find out what really happened that fateful night — was it an accident or, as she’s always suspected, did one of her beloved family members try to kill her?
But digging into the past can reveal horrific truths, and when Allison pieces together the story of her life, she’ll learns the terrible secret at the heart of the family she once loved but never really knew.
I love Tiffany Reisz – she’s an auto-read for me, because her storytelling and writing never disappoint. She doesn’t write traditional romances, and honestly I wouldn’t even categorize The Lucky Ones as a romance, but I love her books despite, or even because of, that. This latest book of hers is set along the coast of Oregon – you almost feel as if you’re transported to the Gothic mansion and can feel the breeze of the Pacific. The Lucky Ones honestly gave me the chills as I was reading – it’s mysterious, suspenseful, Gothic… TR constantly kept me on the edge of my seat. I highly recommend this book if you love the author or anything related to mystery!
Too many secrets in this house.
So many they were starting to feel like…
Thirteen years ago, Allison was living the perfect life with her adopted family, the Capellos. Dr. Vincent Capello was a renowned brain surgeon with a habit of fostering and adopting troubled children and giving them a life they never thought they’d have – becoming “the lucky ones.” But one mysterious night, Allison was shoved down the stairs and nearly died. She was taken away to live with her aunt, never to contact her beloved family for thirteen years. Now, she gets a letter in the mail from her foster brother, Roland, telling her that Dr. Capello is on his deathbed. She returns to the home she had the happiest days of her life in – and the darkest. Will she discover what truly happened the day she nearly died… or was murdered?
This was the kind of suspenseful novel where I literally had no idea where the author would take me next. It’s a wild, chilling, mind-blowing read – I couldn’t put it down! I won’t tell much more of the story because this is one you have to experience for yourself. Just know that Tiffany will take you on a thrilling, wild, mysterious adventure along the Oregon coast.
