For eighteen year old Gia Winters, having a movie star for a father, a former Playboy bunny as a mother, a Hollywood mansion, and a closet stocked with Chanel is simply another day in the life.
But her world is turned upside down when her father mysteriously hires a group of bodyguards to trail the family 24/7 and threatening phone calls from a “Dr. D” start buzzing daily.
When Gia scores the coveted role of Miss Golden Globe, she is forced to strike a deal with her bodyguard, Jack, who is almost as arrogant as he is attractive. Juggling Gia’s romantic failures, fashion faux pas, and celebrity obsessions, the duo investigate a series of clues with the help of a police cadet, who has a special set of skills and an even better set of dimples.
But with the Golden Globes just around the corner, danger levels rise higher than her stilettos as Gia learns that the biggest secrets might be the ones buried in her own home.
In a place where the hills have eyes, high school nemeses, bad hair days, raging parties, and stolen kisses, there can only be trouble for a girl who was just starting to consider herself lucky.
“Lucky Me” by Saba Kapur is a fun light-hearted read. This story is about Gia, who just happens to live a very lucky lifestyle. Gia is very funny. Kapur definitely gave Gia some great witty banter lines. The hardest part for me was that even though Gia was a fun character to read, all the other characters were very flat. There wasn’t really anyone interesting in the book besides Gia.
I was really hoping for a novel that kept me entertained from beginning to end and “Lucky Me” just did not do it for me. Instead I found myself bored and feeling like the book was dragging on with its many pages. I think Kapur has a lot of potential, so I am looking forward to her next novel.
