When Sarah suddenly loses her job at the same time Mackie and Clive have decided to stop fertility treatments, things just fall into place when Sarah offers to carry their baby as a surrogate. While getting back on her feet professionally, Sarah lives with Clive and Mackie, putting the sisters in the same city and same house for the first time in over 10 years. As a sister who moved across the country and lived with my sis and BIL for a time, I could see this one coming from the start! Mackie and Sarah's relationship begins to change as Mackie fusses about what Sarah eats, how much exercise she gets, and how she spends her days. Sarah begins avoiding her sister, sleeping late, skipping family meals, and finally escapes the house by taking a job with the Historical Society, helping them with their efforts to save a local library. Both sisters notice the change, but don't talk about it, and after giving birth, Sarah continues to avoid Mackie, until they are brought together is some very funny circumstances on the roof of the historical library and are able to talk about their changed relationship and roles.
Get Lucky is a touchingly funny, sometimes poignant story of these two sisters who are each others' best friend by distance, learning to rework their relationship and individual lives when they are suddenly living together.
