The Lucky One- Nicholas Sparks

As i finished The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks I was overcome with sadness yet happiness at the same time. When I was first told that we had to pick a book, I was positive that i wanted to read a Nicholas Sparks book because i am always impressed by his writings. While Logan Thibault is serving his time in Iraq, he finds a picture in the sand of a girl, myseriously signed "E" on the back. He keeps the picture in his pocket and continues on in his duty he is shocked by a sudden streak of good luck. He wins poker games and even excapes deadly combat. His friend decides that the picture is his good luck charm.

Back at home in Colorado, he desides to make a journey to find the girl in the picture, with nothing but his trusty german shepard. He has no idea where he is going, what he will do if he finds her and ultimatley no clue why he is even going in the first place. On his destiny he encounters a cop named Clayton. Clayton, who isnt exactley the most trustworthy cop, was taking pictures of girls tanning when he ran into Thibault and dropped his camera. Clayton dosen't like Thibault from the start and tries to figure out why anyone would randomly be hitch hiking in the middle of no where. Little does Clayton know that Thibault is looking for his ex-wife, the girl in the picture, and his lucky charm. Beth (Elizabeth) who was once married to Clayton is a single mother of a boy named Ben. Thibault keeps the picture a secret from Beth, and the reason why he traveled all the way to North Carolina. As the two begin to fall in love, they uncover some secrets that threaten to tear apart their love and their lives.

Every chapter is from a different persons point of view, which makes it interesting and spices things up every once and awhile. Although the story starts kind of slow, as you continue on you will have a hard time putting it down until your finished, you just have to make it through some dreary war flashbacks every once and awhile which i didnt enjoy. But overall i enjoyed the book, characters and storyline!
