Overview

In 1929, the Bright Young Things escape Manhattan's heat for the lush lawns and sparkling bays of White Cove, looking for leisure, love, and luck.

New York City's latest It Girl, Cordelia Grey, is flying high with celebrity pilot Max Darby. But Max is a private person with a reputation to uphold—and a secret to hide. A public romance with a bootlegger's daughter could cost him more than just his good name. . . .

Aspiring triple threat Letty Larkspur has finally gotten her big break, but will her talent—and special bond with the married silver-screen star Valentine O'Dell—make her a target in the cutthroat world of Hollywood? Perhaps the ingenue knows how to play the leading lady after all.

Newly married to her longtime sweetheart, socialite Astrid Donal finds herself spending more time with one of her husband's henchmen than with him. With so many secrets between man and wife, is the honeymoon already coming to an end?

As summer reaches its hottest peak, these sun-kissed girls will find out if their luck can last . . . or if dark surprises are on the horizon.

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Luxe comes the riveting conclusion to the one summer these Bright Young Things will never forget.

The Lucky Ones concludes the stories of three amazing coming of age young ladies. Although the epilogue could have been a little better, it was a good read regardless. Godbersen is a great author that whisks her readers into the world of 1920's glitz and glamour. If you haven't, read her other books from the Luxe series

I love these series and I hope Anna G. will be writing another. I am a little behind, I have less than 50 pages left. I was reading it in the dr. office yesterday and was totally transported to the Mansion and the shoot out at the birthday party. The dr. walked in and I had a hard time coming back to reality!! I had to stop reading to pack a suitcase. Going to Minnesota so hope to find time to finish this one and start another. Yeah, I could read at home but then there are appointments and phone ringing...like right now!!!

I was a massive fan of Godbersen's previous Luxe series. The first two books in this series were pretty good as far as books go. I'm a personal fan of this time period so it made me even more excited to read it. However the "ending" to this series left me very disappointed. Not to spoil anything that happened but two of the girls story lines ended very differently than I was expecting or even wanting. This has been one of very few books in my life were I regretted reading it in the first place and felt like the author was wasting my time.

This was a good ending to this dramatic story. The first 2 books were amazing. This book was good but didn't hold up to the others. Something was missing. I did love it though. Letty ended up being as she should, Astrid ended up totally different than I would have pictured. And Cordelia was always the fearless,strong girl she always is. I give this book 4 stars!!! :)

I'm sure this book will be up to her standard.  I was reading on other information the Barnes & Noble website that this is not the final book in the series.  It mentioned where she lived  and that she was working on a sequel to "The Lucky Ones".   The ending was more open because of this situation.

I enjoyed the first two books in the series and was eagerly anticipating the third. Sad to say that while the beginning and the middle of the book ring true to the authors style and continuing story of the three heroines, the ending leaves the reader in a rather disappointing state. The reader is left with mere scraps of what was, up until then, a very interesting storyline.
