Just Lucky is the first book in the Friends and Enemies series by Fred Waiss. When Ron Russel lost the use of his left arm in an accident, he was ready to live with his disability but he wasn’t ready to let it rule his life. He did pretty much everything he could as normally he could. It took some time, but he got back on his feet and even found romance in college. When that didn’t work out, he let her go. However, that all changed when he met Audrey. She was everything he wanted and he fell head over heels in love with her. But fate had another plan for them. Audrey was killed most horribly and there wasn’t much he could do about it. When he realized that the police were not doing enough to catch her killer, he decided he would look for justice on his own. However, soon he realized that his Audrey was not the only one who was killed. Was there any way Ron could find out what happened to Audrey?
Just Lucky was surprisingly good and filled with an exceptionally well-crafted plot. The story was incredibly paced, the characters were well developed and the overall feel of the story was unbelievably good. This should be a movie! Ron was brilliantly handled by Fred Waiss and he breathed life into this character. The mystery behind Audrey’s murder and the impact it had on Ron’s life was very well depicted. Reading it was a whole experience for me. I could easily imagine what was happening and hear what Ron was saying. He was one of those characters that leave an impact on the minds of readers. This is perhaps the best novel I have read this year!
