Blog Tour - The Last Days of Lilah Goodluck


TITLE: The Last Days of Lilah Goodluck
AUTHOR: Kylie Scott
PUBLISHER: Graydon House
PUBLISHING DATE: February 6, 2024
PAGES: 304   

FROM GOODREADS: “Be quiet and listen: He is cheating on you. The name of your soulmate is Alistair George Arthur Lennox. You will be passed over for the promotion. The winning numbers are 5-8-12-24-39-43. And I’m very sorry to tell you this, but you will die next Sunday.” 
When Lilah Goodluck saves the life of Good Witch Willow as they’re crossing a busy L.A. street, the last thing she expects is five unwanted predictions as a reward. Who gives someone the winning lotto numbers then tells them they’ve only got a week to live? And who believes in that nonsense anyway?
But when the first three predictions come true within twenty-four hours, Lilah’s disbelief turns to mild panic. She’s further horrified when she nearly runs a car off the road that belongs to Alistair Lennox, who just happens to be the illegitimate son of the British king. 
While Alistair is intrigued by her preposterous story, Lilah is adamant about resisting the heat between her and the playboy prince. If she denies he’s her soulmate, then the last prediction can’t come true, right? As the days count down, they become maybe friends…and then maybe more. But between the relentless paparazzi and some disapproving royals, finding time for love isn’t easy, especially when her days may be numbered

MY THOUGHTS: Every once in a while, I pick up a book on a whim and end up wanting to gush about it to everyone and demand everyone read it as soon as possible.  The Last Days of Lilah Goodluck is one of those books.

Lilah is coming back from best friend's birthday party when she sees one the guests, Good Witch Willow, in the path of a moving car.  Lilah jumps into action and saves the "witch" who them shares with Lilah 5 predictions as repayment for her heroic actions.  Lilah is skeptical but when the predictions start coming true one by one, she wonders if Willow really has "the sight."  The only problem is, if the predictions are true, Lilah may have just met her soulmate which is great news, except their days are numbered.

I loved Lilah.  She is a breath of fresh air and her outlook on life, even when faced with possibly horrible news, rarely entered defeatism.  I enjoyed seeing Lilah grapple with the predictions as they each start coming true, and I REALLY enjoyed it when Alistair enters the picture.  

Alistair is the illegitimate son of British royalty.  His father has never really acknowledged him, and his childhood has left him with all kinds of trust issues.  He is a playboy and only meets Lilah when she almost careens into his Aston Martin.  Little by little they are drawn together, even if Alistair thinks the predictions are nothing but luck at best. Alistair comes across as a jerk many times throughout the book, but it's been AGES since I've encountered such a lovable jerk.  I wouldn't say this is actually a grumpy sunshine book, but it's close enough that it worked for me.  I adored both main characters and couldn't devour this book fast enough.

If you are looking for a wonderful read with some depth as well as a lot of fun and characters you can root for, look no further.  I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone.
