With the name Robyn Fortune, shouldn't luck be a sure thing? Instead, black clouds love me. All I did was show up at a family bar mitzvah and cue lightning . . . this huge storm blew in.

I found this book to be an exhausting emotional roller coaster. I felt like it was a little heavy in places and at least once I said "oh enough already!" Not the best book I've read lately, but I enjoyed it.

It's chick lit. definitely. Not my favorite, but it was entertaining and an easy read. I like how everything turned out in the end. Kind of unexpected at times which was also a good thing.

"2.5 out of 5 stars. What can I say I was hoping for more .... I like Robyn on the aspect that YES she is a really strong character in her beliefs and what she'll do for others. However .... sometimes the storyline dragged a bit. =0P Too bad."

What I loved about this book most was how spiritual it was, how it tied pieces of magic and religion and energies together, about how welcoming fate and faith in someone's life can accomplish something close to happiness

I liked the heroine's self-deprecating voice, but the non-stop bad news, confusion over which guy was her fate, and her two-faced friends made for some slow going. The funny side characters helped lighten the load and the Jewish heroine was a fresh perspective.
