Seeking a fresh start in life, Penny Keller leaves McDonnell Air Force Base and takes a job as a police dispatcher with the Cochise County Sheriff’s Department in Arizona. After a bitter divorce and the loss of her young son, Penny believes that romance is the last thing on her mind.

As a result, she is confused when she finds herself torn between two men, Peter Lawson, the outspoken Chief Criminal Deputy whose harsh comments sometimes stun her, and Deputy Valdez Hawke, a man who carries his own dark memories. As Penny struggles to make a choice of the heart, she must also deal with violent criminals who will do anything to keep their shady secrets in the dark. If her luck holds out, she may find the love of a lifetime.

Unfortunately, there was only one thing I actually enjoyed about Penny’s Luck and that was the scenery description when Hawke and Penny went out on their outings. The narration surrounding the backdrop was well detailed and beautifully described. It allowed me to experience the same appreciation for nature that Hawke and Penny experienced.

As for the rest of the novel, it was extremely difficult for me to get into the story. The writing was unexciting and predictable, and the characters lacked enthusiasm and chemistry. Many times, information was given about particular characters, and it appeared to have no relevance in the story. Then there were other characters in the narrative who added nothing to the story line but moments of distraction. As a result, the story flowed far from smoothly, and I felt lucky when it was over.
