The Last Days of Lilah Goodluck

Kylie Scott. Graydon House, $18.99 trade paper (304p) ISBN 978-1-5258-0480-9

Bestseller Scott (End of Story) delivers a sprightly speculative romance. After the aptly named heroine saves Good Witch Willow from being struck with a car, the psychic witch makes several predictions about Lilah’s life: she’ll find out her boyfriend is cheating on her, she’ll be passed over for a promotion at the library where she works, her soulmate will turn out to be a famous almost-royal Brit named Alistair George Arthur Lennox, she’ll win the lottery, and she will die next Sunday. After discounting the predictions as nonsense, Lilah is spooked when one by one, each prophecy becomes true—including meeting her supposed soulmate. Afraid she has only one week left to live, Lilah’s inspired to take time off from her job and pack in as much adventure as she can—with Alistair by her side. What follows is a vibrant and endearing story, helmed by a witty budding couple and bolstered by delightful supporting characters, especially Alistair’s eccentric mother, Lady Helena. This zippy, imaginative outing about seizing all that life and love have to offer inspires. Agent: Amy Tannenbaum, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (Feb.)
