Now, feeling grounded in her new life as a yoga instructor and single mom in New York, Lucky unknowingly enters the dangerous world of corrupt politics. She is forced to take another journey across continents, a trip that puts her faith in humanity in question. Through a series of puzzling encounters with a mysterious individuals including a Buddhist monk, a computer savant, and an elusive Tibetan doctor, Lucky must untangle the web of lies, before the authorities begin to suspect her.
A Star Called Lucky, returns to the exotic world of the spirited, indomitable Lucky, which left readers petitioning the author Bapsy Jain for this sequel.
In this amiable sequel to 2009’s Lucky Everyday, Lucky Boyce—accountant and intuitive sleuth—is yanked from her work for the New York State Department of Corrections (where she teaches yoga to inmates) by powerful and ambitious Clevis Coleman, director of the U.S. Global Wellness Council. With her background knowledge of Mumbai and her expertise with the powerful computer searching tool Bloodhound, Coleman thinks she’s ideally suited to find Lobsang Telok, a London-trained Tibetan doctor who possesses a magic mushroom that can purportedly cure almost anything. Lobsang is believed to be hiding in one of Mumbai’s most notorious slums. Coleman’s means and motives are far from altruistic, and Lucky needs help from some unlikely sources, including teenage neighbor Collette Skyles, PETA activist Usko Tahti, and her Indian friends. Jain’s characters do a lot of musing about life, death, and morality as Lucky decides to do what she must to warn Lobsang in this simplistic novel. (BookLife)
