Once Loganís tour of duty ends, he returns to his home in Colorado.† His mind refuses to let go of the mysterious lady in the picture.† He decides to track her down and ends up in Hampton, North Carolina.† In Hampton, he accepts a dog trainerís job, working for an elderly lady named Nana and her granddaughter, Elizabeth.† He keeps it a secret that Elizabeth is the one that he has been searching for since he left Iraq.

Logan doesnít reveal his true motive for coming to Hampton.† He is going to take the opportunity to get to know Elizabeth better to see if his feelings exist in real life.† Could destiny have played a hand in bringing this couple together?† Will their love be strong enough to keep them together?

WOW!† I feel very fortunate to have been able to experience Nicholas Sparksís newest offering, The Lucky One.† The book has it all with its high action drama, emotional interaction, and a sense of mystery, all contained in this riveting audio.† This definitely is one of the best books that Sparks has penned yet.† Very highly recommended.
