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 eldest son, warning her that their father is ill and in his final days. Allison knows 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 learns the terrible secret at the heart of the family she once loved but never really knew.
Tiffany Reisz is the romantic author of The Saint who won a RITA Award 2015 in the category of Erotic Romance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Really enjoyed this quick read and would recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A quick read Although every plot twist and secret can be guessed as characters are introduced, it was still an enjoyable read. Some of the early dialogue was that glib, juvenile garbage that no one would ever say in real life. I’m glad I read it but I wouldn’t read it again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Atmospheric, eerie, and darkly romantic! The Lucky Ones is a menacing thrill ride that takes you on a journey into the life of the lonely, determined Allison as she unravels all the secrets from her past and confronts all the ghosts that still haunt her. The prose is tight and edgy. The characters are scarred, secretive, and troubled. And the plot is an intense, suspenseful tale filled with familial drama, chemistry, mental illness, abuse, deception, adultery, forbidden love, and murder. Overall, The Lucky Ones is a unique, sinister romance that explores the ethical and moral fine line between right and wrong. And even though it isn’t my favourite book from Reisz and may not be everyone’s cup of tea there is no denying she has an incredible imagination and can spin a gritty tale that intrigues, surprises, and shocks like no other.

Editorial Reviews

"Part mystery, part Gothic suspense...an atmospheric and provocative tale of love, lies, and the secrets a family keeps. THE LUCKY ONES is masterfully crafted with a rich setting and complex characters, an immensely satisfying read that kept me flipping the pages and guessing until the end. I highly recommend." - Kerry Lonsdale, WSJ Bestselling Author"Tiffany Reisz reinvents gothic suspense for the present with this unforgettable story about a family with secrets more dangerous than dragons."
