GET LUCKY, A Novel
by Katherine Center - available in bookstores now
Sarah Harper is sick of her job in advertising in New York even though she is a rising star. With no one special in her life, she sabotages her own employment and heads home for Houston for Thanksgiving. Once there, out of the blue she decides to become a surrogate for her childless sister, Mackie, and her husband, Clive.
Quickly bored with sitting around waiting for the twins to be born, she becomes involved in a local preservation group trying to save a beautiful old library building.
GET LUCKY is definitely not great literature. But throw into the mix Sarah's old high school boyfriend, her professor father's fiance, a sequin wearing Elvis fan appropriately named Dixie, and you have the perfect quick and easy chick lit for summer reading.
