Count Your Lucky Stars is the third novel in the Written in the Stars series. I have really enjoyed reading these books and have become attached to the characters. And if I’m honest Margot has become my favorite character. I couldn’t wait for her to get her happily ever after! So much so that I admittedly kept putting off reading this one. I recently finally bit the bullet and I’m so glad I did. No disappointment here!
Margot has made it loud and clear that she does not do relationships. Casual hook ups are her specialty and no feelings are hurt. Unfortunately, her friends have all found their happily ever after’s and she is starting to feel all alone or like she is in the way. She tries to keep herself busy helping plan the dream wedding for her friends Brendon and Annie. Suddenly, a blast from the past – her childhood friend and first love Olivia – and Margot’s whole world is flipped upside down.
It has been ten years but neither Olivia or Margot have forgotten each other. The first time cross path is so good! You could just tell there is alot of unresolved history between them. There were so many sparks and that was just from the initial conversation and eye contact. Then they find themselves living under the same roof and that is really when their chemistry shows.
Even with the chemistry between them both Margot and Olivia have their reservations. they each gave their hearts to their bond before and wound up broke hearted. Plus, there are still misunderstandings between them which affect their ability to commit. Alexandria Bellefleur does such a good job writing these characters. The way their dynamic is written is both spicy and heartfelt and I love every minute of it.
The dynamic between all the friends is also so well written. Even though there are two other books in the series, you can easily understand these friendships. I loved how thy welcomed Olivia into the group and never made her feel like she was just the wedding planner. And they were one hundred percent behind Margot – supporting her and also not afraid to call her out. Everyone is so accepting of each others queerness and are a hilarious group of friends.
Count Your Lucky Stars continues the bright path which Alexandria Bellefleur has created with her other romantic comedies. The characters are real with flaws and sincere emotions and very easy to get attached to. Especially Margot – I just loved her evolution as a person. I was very happy as a reader with the way everything was put together. I look forward to seeing what this author comes up with next.
