This is a romance-thriller that had just enough of both to keep you wondering into the next chapters to find out what was going to happen next!
Seven children, The Lucky Ones, had been either orphaned or abandoned by their parents and sent into different home-care systems. Until the day when each of their lives would change thanks to a legendary brain surgeon named Dr. Capello. Dr. Capello helped each and every one of these children and then offered his home to them as sanctuary. The house was named The Dragon, which sat along the beach in Oregon.
Allison was the youngest of the seven to live with Dr. Capello after he whisked her away from a foster home. She was living in the home because her mother had died and her aunt was too old to care for her and so she went to live in The Dragon with Dr. Capello and his children.
Then something happens to Allison, sending her to live with aunt who lets Allison know that she will never be returning to the house again. Then, thirteen years later Allison receives a letter in the mail from her foster brother, Dr. Capello’s oldest son, telling her that their ‘father’ is ill and is in his last days.
Although Allison is determined to go back to The Dragon, the ghosts of the past creep back into her mind. This makes the trip even more crucial, she needs to find out what happened all those years ago, she needs to know if someone was really trying to kill her. Digging into these truths uncover a lot more than Allison was hoping for. This tale that will take you up into a dark attic filled with secrets of love and also grief.
I’m not really a romance genre type, but this had just enough of this mixed with mystery that I was eagerly reading to find out what was going to happen next.
