Review: My Lucky Days by S.D. Hendrickson



He was an up-and-coming country singer.
She was the last girl you'd ever see in a bar.
But one night, under those neon lights,
Lucky and Katie found each other.

Beginnings are always exciting.
Always fun. Always hopeful.

Katie was in her last year of college.
Lucky was still playing local stages.
She fell for his voice. She fell for his words.
They fell in love.
It was beautiful.

But time changed their world.
She was alone. He was on the road.
Life happened.
And that love was torn apart.

Endings are always painful.
Always heart wrenching.
But not always final.

One day, Lucky came back to Katie.
And this is their story.


Review
4.5 out of 5 stars


Okay, okay, I admit it.  I am a sucker for sweet, genuine love stories that involve musicians.  I don't care if it is a rocker like Kellan Kyle or a country music singer like Lucky in this book, I fall so hard for them!  My Lucky Days is especially heartwarming for me because every chapter has a song reference at the top and being the huge country music fan that I am, it was such a wonderful touch.  The book has it's own playlist for every chapter.

The heroine of the book, Katie, is such a wonderful character.  I adored her personality and the way she is fiercely independent.  She is selfless to a fault.  As a college senior she is level-headed and smart.  Even though she came from a family with money, the one thing she never had was a home.  One evening she has a chance encounter with an up and coming country music singer and her life is forever changed.

Meet Landon "Lucky" Evans.  Lucky is one of the best characters I have read in a long time.  He is sweet, attentive and can make a girl swoon with a single text message.  I adore his back story and the fact that he loves with every fiber of his being.  Of course the guitar playing and singing don't hurt his case either!

I already knew that S.D. Hendrickson is an amazing author.  I fell in love with her writing style and story telling ability when I opened The Mason List, so I had extremely high hopes for My Lucky Days.  I was floored by my love for My Lucky Days.  All of the characters had such wonderful personalities and I felt a true connection to them and their story.  You will laugh and cry in this story.  While it is somewhat predictable, it is so well written that I did not mind that at all.  Well done, S.D.!
