The Lucky One... Nicholas Sparks

Book 39... The main character, Thibault, a marine. finds a photo in Iraq. It becomes his lucky charm. He survives more ambush, combats than most, to the point that some of his fellow marines believe that if they stick close to him, they'll die and he'll survive.

Then he gets an honourable discharge, goes home, meets up with his old marine buddy from Iraq. His buddy dies while a boat sliced into theirs on a fishing trip. He survives yet again. With some prompting from this same buddy, he sets out to find the lady in the photo, with his dog, Zeus.

He finds her in a small town, falls in love with her and fits right into her life. Suspense and thrill appear when the ex-husband tries to put a wedge.

It's a typical Nicholas Sparks book in the sense that it tugs at your heart strings....
