Book Review for THE LUCKY ONES by Tiffany Reisz
THE LUCKY ONES by Tiffany Reisz
☕ ☕ ☕ ☕
My Highly Caffeinated Thought: A darkly intense family saga packed with suspense and secrets.
THE LUCKY ONES manages to be both seductive and horrifying at the same time. As the pages flipped by, I fell further down into the rabbit hole with Allison as she begins to regain memories that she thought were lost forever.
Above all else, this book tells the tale of a family and their love as well as loyalty to each other. The bond between the siblings and their father seem to be unbreakable. However things get really interesting when secrets from the past and begin to make their way to the surface.
The way Reisz masterfully interlaced the emotions of the characters with the history of this family made this book. Her ability to capture heart, fear, and pain propels the narrative just as much as the unraveling of the secrets kept so closely guarded by the patriarch of this family. THE LUCKY ONES is a wonderfully dark story that show how the best intentions can go horribly wrong.
Reviewer Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the publisher and TLC Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
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.
A vivid and suspenseful tale of family, grief, love—and the dark secrets that bind everything together—Tiffany Reisz’s latest is enthralling to the final page.
