Lucky Charm by Carly Phillips
ARC for honest review with no compensation
Lucky Charm is the 1st book in the Lucky series and what a great way to start it with the “curse” over all the Corwin men! ! !
This book is about Derek Corwin and his second chance at love with the girl he left behind because of the curse, Gabrielle. The curse on the male Corwin’s is "Any Corwin male who falls in love will be destined to lose his love and his fortune”, so he decided to find another girl in college that he could maybe just lust after and marry her that way the curse would not affect him but he ended up divorced and lost most of his fortune.
When Gabby, who is a well know author returns back to town to show them that the curse is not real but the mayor is keeping it alive because it was her family that put the curse on the Corwin men. While Derek believes in the curse, Gabby works hard at showing him that it’s just circumstances that make it look like the curse….will she be able to convince Derek that the curse is not real and for them to have their second chance at love and a HEA or will he disregard all she does?????
Lots of sub plots go along with making this a good read, can’t wait for the next book….Lucky Streak! !
I really enjoyed this story. Great read!
Great start to a series. How lucky I was to read it!
This is the first book in a three book series. ( This is a re-release of a series so you will notice it is listed in a different order now.). This series is all about the Corwin Curse and is based in Massachusetts. Back when the Salem Witch Trails were going on a Perkins witch cursed a Corwin man. The curse follows all males in the line. Of corse you have to read the book to find out the ins and outs of the curse but believe me the older Corwin males believe it. And HOW!
This book is Derek Corwin and his high school sweetheart Gabrielle, a writer who de-bunks paranormal activities...one activity at a time. Now she is in town writing a book on the Corwin curse...something she knows something about first hand. It broke her and Derek up. He believed. Did she?
This book is both funny and also for me has some sad parts. It is a great start to this series, which I highly recommend. Great romance.
