Bulletproof Soul is the debut novel by Up and Coming Author Michelle Buckley, it is a story that all mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, nieces, best friends etc etc should read.  Lacy Foxx is a reporter at the Metro Tribune and while her career may be successful, her personal life is in shambles.  She’s broken up with her fiancé Sebastian, lost their babies, and nearly lost her mind but despite everything, Lacy is determined to move on with her life until the day she meets Wynnton Trust at the local Youth Center after doing a feature on him for the paper.  Even though, things between them get off to a rocky start, they give in to their attraction until Lacy’s baggage once again catches up with her and she pulls away from him. 


Eventually, they begin their relationship and Lacy once again learns the old-age lesson, if it’s too good to be true, it usually is.  After Wynn is in a life or death situation, a BIG skeleton comes falling out of his closet and causes Lacy to question whether Wynn is truly the man she thought he was.   She winds up making a mistake that could cost her their relationship.  They break up to make up until an unexpected event shakes Lacy to the core and once again, she has to decide to either give up or start over.


Bulletproof Soul is a remarkable story about one woman's journey to recapture her spirit, and learn from her mistakes.  Lacy is the kind of character that you will root for as no matter how many times life knocks her down, she gets right back up.  This book is a must-read! It will make you laugh, cry, just sit and shake your head and cheer as Lacy finds her "Bulletproof Soul".  I give this book 5 stars! It was chosen as BOTM for  July for our reading group
