Review: Getting Lucky by D.C.Brod
Paperback: 336 pages
Publisher: Tyrus Books (December 18, 2011)
Product Dimensions: 8.5 x 5.8 x 1 inches
Publication Date: December 18, 2011
When a young reporter is killed in a hit and run accident, freelance writer Robyn Guthrie agrees to finish one of the stories the reporter had been writing for the local newspaper. But nothing is as simple as it seems when she finds out about shady land deals, an old high school nemesis, and Robyn's aging mother.
Getting Lucky is the sequel to Getting Sassy. I have not read Getting Sassy and you do not have to read it to enjoy Getting Lucky. There is plenty of action in this novel centered on a freelance writer,Robyn Guthrie, who is trying to solve a colleague's death. The plot centers around a "green" housing development.
Robyn is a realistic main character. She is in her forties whose main challenge is life is her aging mother who is living in an assisted living facility. She is facing a future without her beau as she has decided it is too late to contemplate having children.
There are lots of interesting characters and plenty of action. I'm looking forward to reading more Robyn Guthrie adventures.
