Three years ago, Lucky Boyle found solace as an eccentric yoga instructor after a unexpected cross-continent move and divorce to land in New York as a single mom in the international bestseller Lucky Everyday. Now, Lucky is challenged once again by a twist of fate in Bapsy Jain’s newest novel A Star Called Lucky.

A Star Called Lucky returns the reader to the exotic world of the indomitable, spirited Lucky Boyle, whose life falls into a tailspin from the moment she is accosted by a duo of unsavory strangers on the New York subway. The encounter marks the beginning of a day of surprises as the sudden appearance of a powerful bureaucrat and a fleeting encounter with a mysterious Buddhist monk forces her into the secret and dangerous world of corrupt politics.

Reluctantly, she takes on a bizarre assignment to track a renowned but elusive Tibetan doctor, and begins another voyage across continents. Events unravel at whirlwind pace as Lucky struggles to unravel the web tying her to a dangerous secret. Her safety rests in the uncertain hands of a computer savant and in her ability to trust her own intuition as she examines the delicate balance between love and life in this exciting sequel.

Written in a concise, engaging style, A STAR CALLED LUCKY is the pulse-pounding sequel to Jain's LUCKY EVERYDAY. Lucky is a strong, funny, and nuanced lead protagonist, and her reflections on the world and people around her are fascinating.
A STAR CALLED LUCKY is an unusually thoughtful and relatable work in a genre not known for intelligent, textured female protagonists.
