In GETTING LUCKY, Marilyn Pappano continues her series of small town life centered in Bethlehem, New York. In this installment, Ben Foster has come to town in the hopes of finding and possibly meeting the daughter he has never met. Twelve years ago, Ben had a brief relationship with a young woman whose future seemed to be going nowhere. Not that Ben had any future that looked any brighter. There were no hard feelings between them, but Ben did not want to stick around once he knew Berry was pregnant. He was only 19 years old, and had no clue what he wanted out of life. He left Berry to raise their daughter on their own.

Lynda Barone was a multi-millionaire lawyer that made her career her life. There were no friends except for Melina, and no boyfriends for a good many years. Her mother was constantly nagging her to meeting Mr. Right, but all Lynda thought she wanted was to be left alone.

The day the two meet changes their lives forever.

Marilyn Pappano paints a pretty picture of life in a small town, while at the same time tells an interesting story of love, romance, and doing the right thing. The only complaint I had with this book was that I didn't know it was one of a series of books. You have to get the next book in order to find out how things turn out with Ben and his newly found daughter, Alanna. But, since this book was enjoyable enough, I wouldn't mind reading the sequel or looking up the previous books in the series.

A man with nothing left to lose.

Rebel. Hell-raiser. Seducer in blue jeans. Ben Foster has been called many things - except father. His twelve-year-old daughter Alanna has never seen him, and he's starting to think that coming to Bethlehem to meet her could be the second biggest mistake of his life. And when he takes a job fixing up businesswoman Lynda Barone's new house, he may be on the brink of making a third: falling in love with a woman as wrong for him as he is for her . . . except when he takes her in his arms.

Lynda couldn't remember he last time she had a date. Eighteen-hour workdays and frequent business trips had really taken a toll on her personal life. She'd been so busy carving out a successful career that she almost didn't notice how lonely she'd become. That is, until Ben Foster strode into her life. Suddenly the sexy Southern handyman was invading her home, her senses, stirring dangerous fantasies of a love Lynda had convinced herself she could live without. Lucky for them, neither is the marrying kind . . . or are they? Stranger things have happened in a place where the most unlikely lovers can suddenly get lucky. Even if luck has nothing to do with it.
