Get Lucky is the touching third novel for author Katherine Center (Everyone Is Beautiful, The Bright Side of Disaster) that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Sarah Carter is a former advertising executive who recently got canned due to a inappropriate, albeit funny email being accidentally forwarded to her entire companies staff.  So, with her tail between her legs she heads home to Texas where she hopes to find a new career and a new start.

Sarah’s sister and her husband have been trying to have children for a few years with no success and on the drive back to her home she tells Sarah she has decided to give up and possibly consider adopting.  Sarah asks if there are any other options and learns about being a surrogate.  After talking it over with her sister she decides she will be her sisters! They work out a deal where she will have free room and board in their guest bedroom and the extra time as the babies grow she can use to figure out what she wants to do after giving birth.

Now as we all know pregnancy is not easy and being that your technically not carrying your own children,  but those that belong to someone else makes it even more complicated. Couple that with raging hormones and an ex now working for her brother-in-laws company you have yourself a pretty tasty literary meal.

Katherine once again has created an engaging novel that shines a light on the process of surrogacy and showcases the unbreakable bonds of family and just how much we would put ourselves through for them.  I suggest picking up this book as you will thoroughly enjoy it.
