The Lucky One

I am in love with this book. It was such an amazing book! I was a bit skeptical at first because I had never read any of his books, just seen his movies and I wasn’t that big of a fan of them. Within the first two chapters I couldn’t put it down. I actually finished it yesterday morning but this is the first time I’ve been able to sign on. 
The book takes place in a small town called Hampton, and the story is centered around a man named Logan Thibault. He was away in the military and he found a picture in the sand in the desert, after posting it up on the bulletin board for a month he took it back and gave himself the job of finding the woman in the picture. 
He held onto the picture the rest of the time in the military and a lot of people seemed to think it was his good luck charm. Once he returned to the states he set off on a journey to find this woman, all he knew about her was that her first initial was E and she lived in the Carolinas. 
After not knowingly running into "E"'s ex husband who turns out to be sheriff of the county he is in, he starts showing her picture around bars and pool halls to try to find her. Unfortunately it being such a small town, one of them men he showed her picture too happened to be best friends with the sheriff, who immediately went to Thibault and told him to get out of town. After a new job, some dog training and shag dancing lessons, the sheriff starts to realize getting Thibault out of town won’t be an easy task. 
This is a great weekend read, I say weekend because if you start it during the week you won’t be able to put it down, therefore missing work and school and getting fired. Nobody wants that. So in conclusion I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone.
