Review: The Lucky Heart by Devney Perry

May 22, 2018

Life on his ranch could be their future. If they can overcome their past.

 

Felicity’s life story reads like the script to a bad soap opera. Girl’s high-school boyfriend becomes a drug addict. Girl falls for boyfriend’s best friend. Girl leaves them both behind only to return home years later for murdered ex-boyfriend’s funeral. Now she’s back home in Montana, ready to start fresh. She’s got a long list of amends to make and relationships to rebuild, including one with the man who has owned her heart for sixteen years.

 

Silas doesn’t need much. He’s got a great horse, close friends and the Lucky Heart ranch, but something has always been missing. He’s not an idiot. He knows the missing piece is Felicity. And now that she’s returned to Prescott, he’s got a second chance to win her heart. This time, the only thing standing in his way is history. Drudging up the past is going to be about as painful as playing tug of war with barbed wire. But if they can heal old wounds, he’ll get the girl he should have had all along.

*** 3 Star Review ***

 

I have read the first two books in this series and The Birthday List. I really enjoyed all three of them. This one is the least favorite of mine. It wasn't as good as the other books of Devney's that I have read.

 

There was good and bad in this story for me. I think I will start with the bad, which really isn't bad. I felt like nothing of importance happened until the end of the book. It moved slowly, all the while, I was waiting for any form of excitement or action to happen. 

 

The sexual tension and angst... It all fell flat for me. I knew exactly what Devney was trying to create, but it just didn't quite reach her target. Maybe that was because I couldn't feel any form of connection between Silas and Felicity. It just wasn't there for me.

 

Now the good. I really enjoyed the relationships Felicity was able to form and reconcile in this book. Those connections felt more real and organic. Then there is Silas's relationships with his friends and family. They were completely on mark.

 

Overall, this book may not have been my favorite, but it is still a good book. It just didn't wow me like Devney's other books have so far.
