The Lucky One: By Nicholas Sparks

U.S. Marine, Logan Thibault finds a picture while on his third tour of duty in Iraq. The picture is of a smiling woman, and somehow this picture seems to bring him luck. He carries the picture with him everywhere, and believes that it is his destiny to find this woman. Once he arrives back home in Colorado, he sets out on a journey across the country to find the woman in the picture. He ends up in Hampton, North Carolina where he finally meets the girl in the picture. Elizabeth is a single mother who finds Logan completely intriguing. He keeps his good luck charm a secret, and ends up falling in love with Elizabeth. She has many questions about him, and is always sure that he's hiding something. Despite her gut feeling that he's hiding something, she falls in love with him too. Thibault feels at home in Hampton, and is afraid that if Elizabeth were to find out the truth of why he came, it would destroy their love forever. But this secret proves to be much more dangerous than he could have ever imagined.
The Lucky One is not only centered around romance, but also adds a twist that even I didn't see coming. He reveals pieces of the story in such a way that keeps you guessing until the last page. 
I absolutely adore this book. Once again, Nicholas Sparks wrote a novel that completely surprised me. I recommend it to everyone, even if you're not really into the whole romance thing. There is so much more to it than that (I don't want to give too much away). It's an easy read, but so good. 
Although, I might just be saying that because I got it signed by Nicholas Sparks himself. Just kidding!
