Publication date: May 1st 2014

Sometimes surviving doesn’t feel lucky. Especially when you’re a sole survivor…
At the age of seven, Malerie walked away from a bombing that left hundreds dead—including her mother. When a crazed gunman kills her guardian on her eighteenth birthday, Malerie suspects there may be more to her survival than luck. A mysterious code holds the key to her future, and a reluctant white knight holds the key to her heart.
A loner wearing emotional armor…
Ace is a twenty-year-old entrepreneur focusing on two things in life: financial security and a life without ties. A life that doesn’t risk losing the ones who matter. When Ace is hired to secretly act as a bodyguard for Malerie, he faces an unwanted attraction that threatens to sabotage his heart. Can Ace find the courage to love a girl with a death wish?
Chasing Lucky is the first in a new series by Brinda Berry, Serendipity. I was really looking forward to reading this story and was not at all disappointed.
From the prologue to the epilogue, I was turning the pages to get every bit of Malerie and Ace’s story. Berry makes a great match with Malerie and Ace. She gives us leads that are both dealing with tragic pasts while developing into memorable and empathetic characters. The mystery and suspense are fresh and kept me guessing at what was going to happen next.
I’m looking forward to reading Collin’s story in Tempting Fate.
Brinda Berry lives in the southern US with her family and two spunky cairn terriers. She’s terribly fond of chocolate, coffee, and books that take her away from reality. She doesn’t mind being called a geek or “crazy dog lady”. When she’s not working the day job or writing a novel, she’s guilty of surfing the internet for no good reason.
