Review: Get Lucky by Katherine Center

When Sarah gets fired from her job, she retreats to her home in Texas for the Thanksgiving weekend. While she's there, her sister Mackie tells her that she's going to stop trying to have a baby since she's had several miscarriages. Sarah's quite bummed about this and that's when she gets the idea...since she's just recently lost her job maybe she should carry the baby for Mackie!

Mackie agrees and the girls quickly make plans which include Sarah moving in with Mackie and her husband. The perfect arrangement right? Well maybe not. There are going to be all kinds of hormones, jealousies, and feelings for both of them.

I really enjoyed Get Lucky. It's such a relief sometimes to read a book that is brimming over with heart and has all these gorgeous little truths woven into regular narrative while also just making me laugh. Does the book use certain conventions familiar to readers of chick lit? Yes. But I find them comforting and I find the book no less emotionally honest for choosing to use humor to explore the complex and beautiful relationship of sisters.
