Count Your Lucky Stars

Avon. (Written in the Stars, Bk. 3). Feb. 2022. 384p. ISBN 9780063000889. pap. $15.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
The third in Bellefleur’s series (after Written in the Stars and Hung the Moon) sees Margot Cooper feeling increasingly like the odd woman out in her circle of coupled-up friends. As her dating life has been disastrous, she decides to focus on her business, the astrology app Oh My Stars; her best-woman duties for her best friend and business partner Brendon’s upcoming wedding; and casual hookups. Margot’s plan is under control until the new wedding planner turns out to be none other than Olivia Grant, the first woman Margot ever loved, her childhood best friend and sweetheart. Olivia is now divorced and looking for a fresh start. She needs to prove to her boss she can carry off this very important wedding, no distractions allowed. But even after ten years, Olivia and Margot are pulled together by the attraction that was only foiled by misunderstanding. If Margot and Olivia can learn from the mistakes of their past and let fate work her magic, perhaps they’ll be able to count their lucky stars together, forever.
VERDICT A warm hug of a queer contemporary romance with sparkling prose, heartfelt dialogue, and delicious dirty talk. Fans of the series will be delighted by the returning characters and the steamy heat between Margot and Olivia, while new readers who liked Tessa Bailey’s It Happened One Summer or Karelia Stetz-Waters’s Satisfaction Guaranteed will find much to love. Highly recommended for all libraries.
