Overview

Her marriage is over. Her newspaper career went belly up. And it won’t be long before her two teenage sons are off to college…and then what? Sometimes it seems like the only thing Ginger Garrison can count on is her beloved Bichon Frisé and the loyal women in her dog-walking group. But her luck is about to take a wild turn. . .

A diplomatic snafu has sidelined the globe-trotting nature photographer Lucio “Lucky” Montevez, a man known as much for his wild personal life as his wildlife images. Now stuck in the States and forced to shoot pet portraits for a living, his prospects look downright tame…until Ginger enters his world (along with her boys, her spoiled pooch, and her egomaniacal ex-husband). Lucky’s always been a love-her-and-leave-her kind of guy, but something about the spirited, sensual Ginger makes him want to stick around. But will Lucky’s playboy past end up costing him the only woman he’s ever really loved?

    typical twist-not as good as the first book in the series

    I was looking so forward to this release from Susan Donovan. I loved the first book in the series. I have reread several times. The book read like a formula to basic math equation. I knew when the twist and turns were going to happen. I knew exactly who would be the villian. Not sure if I will read the 3rd book in series. If you are looking for books from Susan D. to read I have listed them below

    A delightful story. Funny and sexy

    Susan Donovan writes a delightfully funny and sexy story in The Night She Got Lucky.

    Ginger Garrison world seems to be falling apart. Her job at the newspaper maybe be ending, her ex husband is acting about the same age as her sixteen year old twin boys. She is convinced her best years are behind her. Ginger feels love has passed her by. But her chance meeting with photographer Lucio "Lucky" Montevez has her thinking a change is in the air.

    Lucky Montevez is stuck in the USA until his reputation and career can be saved. As a favor to a friend he agrees to photograph his wedding. He is captivated there by one of the bridesmaids. Her love for her family and friends touches a place in Lucky that he didn't think existed.

    Ginger and Lucky start a sensual relationship that is deeper then either of them have experienced. But Lucky's past comes back to haunt him and puts their new found love on shaky ground. Will they be able to overcome this setback?

    The Night She Got Lucky is sensational. Its a wonderful novel about second chances and being willing to put yourself out there for love. The book is full of humor and deep feelings of love and friendship. This book is a gem, I enjoyed getting to know these two delightful characters. I am eager to get my hands on the next book in this series.

    a fun lighthearted contemporary wacky romance

    The elderly matchmaking widow Mrs. Needleman insists she is a psychic and informs Ginger Garrison that she will soon get lucky as the man of her dreams awaits her. Ginger gently scoffs at the forecasting as she had one selfish mate and so is not interested in another; that is until she meets nature photographer Lucio "Lucky" Montevez; as the tea leaves said she would get Lucky.

    Lucio is uninterested in any woman at the moment. Instead he remains singularly focused on regaining his shattered career as a globetrotting photographer of the world's wild. When he fails to get his career back on track due to bureaucratic ineptitude, Lucio turns to painting portraits of owners with their pets because he needs to eat. This leads him back to Ginger, her twin teen sons, her pet walking crew, her selfish former husband and the frightening Mrs. Needleman.

    The aptly titled The Night She Got Lucky is a fun lighthearted contemporary wacky romance starring two individuals who share in common an attraction and a disclaimer re no permanent relationships; though their reasons differ. Fans will enjoy the amusing plot as the wildlife photographer finds picture taking in a cement jungle with ferocious owners and their pets scarier than field work. Susan Donovan provides a warm dog walker's tale (see Ain't Too Proud to Beg and take a Chance One me) with a wonderful story line that once again feels like a throwback to the 1930s madcap comedies.
