Tammy Hawag's book is somewhat different from her earlier novels, but it is certainly interesting and takes the reader to a world that is not often explored: Louisiana's backwoods or Cajun Bayous! Here's my review of Lucky's by Tami Hoag.
Serena Sheridan : A successful psychologist from Charleston returns home in Louisiana
Lucky Dusit : Cajun is mysterious and potentially dangerous to be feared by most
Shelby : Serena's sister, who did not agree with her
Gifford Sheridan : Serena, who owns a large ancestral home, is trying to buy a chemical company
Plot :: When Serena Sheridan returns to her grandparents' home for a break from her psychological practice in Charleston, South Carolina, she faces an unexpected problem. Her grandmother left his home and moved to Louisiana Bayu, where he kept a fishing and hunting cottage.
He seems unable to address the financial problems surrounding his home and business and the possibility of selling him to a large chemical company that wants to build a factory on the property. Of course, her sister would like to sell, so you can get the money to help develop her husband's political dreams.
Serena should venture into Beto and the only person who can get her is a suspicious character named Lucky Dusit. Lucky has a bad reputation and no one seems to know much about him, except that he lives in Baio and is afraid of locals.
Lucky and Serena will soon learn admiration and respect for the other, which develops into an extraordinary love story. It does not seem that luck is a serious criminal, but more than the protector of Pino and the people who live there. Keep the hunters and those who wish to harm the bayou.
Lucky has his own demons, which he must deal with, while trying to help Serena convince her father not to sell the property.
I enjoyed the way Tammy Hawag, describes Beto and you really feel that you are on the pirogue and poling through the bayou. The dialogue of Lucky is Cajun French and makes the book very original and romantic. There is even a glossary in the back that translates French phrases, so you know exactly what it is talking about Lucky!
Lady Lucky is filled with mystery, movement, intrigue and lots of romance. I usually read mystery novels and crime, but I found this refreshing break with an unusual tangled love story. I really enjoyed this book and I think most Tami Hoag fans love this book.
For men, there may be a lot of romance, but I was not personally and I will come back to read this book sometime in the future. Overall, on this page 342, the turner page was very enjoyable reading from the cover to the cover.
