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.

REVIEW: The Lucky Ones is a story that will stay with me for a long time. Reisz has yet again proven to be on top of her game. In a style that is unique to Reisz, The Lucky Ones pushes the limits of right and wrong, love & hate, humanity and ethics, where secrets are kept for the sake of happiness.
With a hint of suspense & romance Reisz entice us to dive into the world of Dr. Capperllo and his children. Roland, Deacon, Thora & Allison. As the story develops we learn a great deal about these characters and their past and who they have become. But it isn’t until secrets and memories surfaces that we come to learn a lot more about their past and who they were.
In a mixture of sex and suspense The Lucky Ones explores the lives of a very interesting group of characters and their story. Each of these characters holds a secret, and each is part of bigger secret. As the secrets of a family slowly unravels the deception, lies & heart break slowly take the front row. But it is as these characters start learning again about who they are that they realize secrets & lies may not be all they have. High emotions and hard decisions make for a great story that test & explores the limits of right and wrong.
The Lucky Ones is another great story by Tiffany Reisz, a story that will stay with the reader long after the story ends. I highly recommend it.
