Review: Unlucky Charms by Linda O Johnston. Midnight Ink.

unlucky-charmsThe author has introduced us to the superstition tourist town of Destiny, California. Myth has it that Destiny was founded in the Gold Rush era when lucky seekers found gold there at the end of a rainbow.

You can believe that or not, but it’s a fact that Destiny has a thriving tourist business and the businesses there work together to preserve the superstitious flavor. Our heroine, Rory, manages the Lucky Dog Boutique and has just brought forth a new collection of personally designed doggy good luck toys.

But when a resident is found dead with one of Rory’s lucky rabbit toys, Rory instantly becomes the principal suspect. Rory knows she had better do something fast to turn luck around for herself, other businesses, and the town.

Rory manages a particularly awkward situation: being the principal suspect in a murder while being the main squeeze for Destiny’s police chief. Suspects are plentiful, and Rory has her work cut out for her.

My thanks to author, publisher, and NetGalley for making an advance copy of this book available for me to read and review.  I enjoyed the mystery–and learned a lot about superstitions.
