I had the pleasure of reading What the Luck? before it was officially published.

Off the top, this was a First reads win.

An easy read, funny, fun, humorous. I enjoyed the book, especially since there were nice short chapters which allowed picking it it up and putting it down as needed during busy days. Enough of a (implausible) plot to keep the story going, good blending of the various threads to the climax. Kept a smile on my face for a weekend.
