LUCKY FOR YOU

LUCKY FOR YOU                                  JAYNE DENKER

It’s where everyone remembers your name—and your mistakes. But the quaint Catskills town of Marsden has a way of inspiring the unlikeliest reunions, flipping the script on the best laid plans, and opening even the most stubborn hearts… 
 
Jordan Leigh’s always had a reputation for being bad news. So she figured it was only a matter of time before she got into serious trouble. But serving house arrest in her hometown of Marsden is truly cruel and unusual punishment. Plus she's under police officer Will Nash's up-close-and-all-too-personal supervision…which could make things worse—or more fun.
 
To make amends, Jordan throws herself into making nice with her neighbors, taking in stray animals, and helping teenage girls get back on track. But what she really wants is to get on the right track with Will. To do that, she’ll have to show him she's grown up. And if that means making him break his own rules and face down his own fears, she's up for the challenge …

HUBBY'S REVIEW:
This is a story of a women coming back to a town that everyone knows everything you have done since childhood and like to throw though mishaps back into your face every chance they get. Jordan Leigh, is back also because they don’t take kindly to people riding horses through casino’s, and riding a horse that does not belong to you, but that was all she remembered from that night. Now she is on probation and must do hours of community service. Also she has to check in with the local police. When Will Nash comes into work he is normally the first person there in the morning, but this morning he notices that the chiefs door is open and is surprised that she is in so early. He is more surprised to find Jordan sitting in the chief’s chair and then she goes into her ramble on how someone left the outside door unlocked. She also calls him by a different name starting with “W” every time she sees him just to bug him. Once the chief arrives Jordan is upset that she put Will in charge of supervising her because he took advantage of a beanie animal trade in kindergarten. Will likes Jordan, and though she likes him she has many issues that need to be worked out. She is the only person who can do this. Will wants to help and tries to smooth things over between her and the community but when she up and leaves this does not bode well for any chance. Then she gets a job working with at risk teen girls something she can relate to and she is good at when after an incident she takes off again this time for months, and again with no call, text, or anything to Will who pissed, hurt, angry, frustrated, and worried about her. When he finally has gotten over he thinks four months have gone by. Look who comes back into town Jordan. This time she is different, but she knows she has made a mess of things with Will, she loves him and she must come up with ways to show him that and that she won’t take off again. This an outstanding story with funny moments and very emotional moments at times. You get to see the struggle of what people go through when everyone thinks they always are doing badly. You also get caught up in the struggle between them as a wood be couple. A very good book.  Author copy provided for fair & honest review.  I give this 5 stars.
