Budding photographer Josie Saint-Martin has spent half her life with her single mother, moving from city to city. When they return to her historical New England hometown years later to run the family bookstore, Josie knows it’s not forever. Her dreams are on the opposite coast, and she has a plan to get there.

What she doesn’t plan for is a run-in with the town bad boy, Lucky Karras. Outsider, rebel…and her former childhood best friend. Lucky makes it clear he wants nothing to do with the newly returned Josie. But everything changes after a disastrous pool party, and a poorly executed act of revenge lands Josie in some big-time trouble—with Lucky unexpectedly taking the blame.

Determined to understand why Lucky was so quick to cover for her, Josie discovers that both of them have changed, and that the good boy she once knew now has a dark sense of humor and a smile that makes her heart race. And maybe, just maybe, he’s not quite the brooding bad boy everyone thinks he is…

3 Reasons You Should Read…

Chasing Lucky by Jenn Bennett

  • We fell in love with Jenn Bennett back when we read The Anatomical Shape of a Heart for homework. Her character writing is unlike anyone else–they’re always relatable and real and we can’t help but love them! Lucky and Josie are our new favorites. ❤️
  • We love the second chance romance and falling for your best friend tropes. Of course falling for Lucky wasn’t hard for us! 😉
  • The setting of this story was just perfect. Small town (with a little bookstore thrown in) kids with big dreams. :le sigh:

Bottom Line:

Chasing Lucky is a quintessential Jenn Bennett gift, filled with relatable characters dealing with realistic issues while falling in love, wrapped up in a beautiful setting with a big (not too perfect) bow on top. We love it and know you will, too.
