Release Day Review: The Lucky Ones by Tiffany Reisz


  • Publisher: MIRA/Harlequin 
  • Publication Date: February 13, 2018

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.

Too many secrets in this house. So many they were starting to feel like...Lies.
The blurb of The Lucky Ones was one that really piqued my interest. I had no idea what to expect, but I was ready for a mysterious ride. I loved how the secrets were revealed piece by piece. The author did such an incredible job in keeping the reader in suspense and guessing throughout the book. I had theories as to what happened to Allison but was proven wrong each time. I love it when a story is unpredictable and when an author can get me to sit on the edge of my seat. I was so hooked to the story that I read the last 40% of the book in one sitting (I was done at 4AM). There was no way I could put the book down to get some sleep. 
She'd known nothing but love here, nothing but kindness. But someone must have left a door open a crack and evil had snuck in when no one was looking.
The 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 all had a very shocking past. It sometimes was very difficult for me to contain my tears while I was reading this book. This book was suspenseful, mysterious, sweet, emotional, heartbreaking, and very dark at times. Each and every character was very unique and had a very intriguing past. I was on a very long emotional rollercoaster, and I didn't want to get off it. I do wish there was an epilogue because I am really curious to see how everyone is doing. I also want to mention that the cover is beautiful and fits the story perfectly. I am looking forward to what Tiffany Reisz has in story for us next.
