Reviews for Finding Lucas:

“Because this book is so tightly written with characters that are dynamic, ‘real’ and essential throughout the storyline and because the climax of the novel delivers many peaks and valleys as it unravels, it is easy to imagine this novel adapted for film.” – Julie Valerie

“Anyone looking for a fabulous, fun chick lit will enjoy this one. It’s well written, fun and quirky. Definitely pick this one up today!” -Lydia Laceby, Novel Escapes, and author of Redesigning Rose

“Finding Lucas is Samantha’s debut novel (and what a debut this is!). I loved every page of the book. All characters are extremely well created and developed. By the end of the book, I had an exact picture in my head of what these characters could look like.” – Heidi at Cosmochicklitan

“It is chick lit at its finest and it has it all- lovable characters, romantic tension, a main character that you want to see happy, and a satisfying conclusion.” –The Book Chick
