Are You Lucky?

by Linda O. Johnston

unlucky-charmsAre you lucky?  I’m not always sure that I am, but one lucky thing for me is that my third Superstition Mystery, UNLUCKY CHARMS, is now available.  It’s an October 2016 release from Midnight Ink.

My Superstition Mysteries feature Rory Chasen, a pet lover who managed a pet store in Los Angeles… till she came to Destiny, California.  Destiny is all about superstitions, and Rory headed there when her fiancé died after walking under a ladder.  No, the ladder didn’t fall on him, but he was hit by a car soon afterward.  Did the two interconnect?  Did he die thanks to the effect of the superstition?  Rory wants to know, but she still isn’t sure.

Even so, is she lucky?  Maybe, since she’s wound up in Destiny managing the Lucky Dog Boutique.  And she’s there with her dog Pluckie, a spaniel-terrier mix who’s black and white, which makes Pluckie a lucky dog.  On the other hand, Rory’s the murder suspect in UNLUCKY CHARMS.

In the first two books, she had to solve the murders because friends were the suspects, but now it’s even more critical for her to get the necessary answers.  And does she?

Well, it’s a cozy mystery, so I’d imagine you can guess.  But how she gets there isn’t always easy.

Meantime, Halloween is approaching, which itself is filled with superstitions.  For all of you at Writerspace reading this, my fingers are crossed that you have a great, lucky month–and that you enjoy UNLUCKY CHARMS!

Where Everyone Knows Your Name: Writing small-town stories.

I have nothing against big cities. My youngest lives in Seattle, two blocks from the Space Needle. I fall more in love with the city each time I visit, but when it comes to where to set my stories, small-town wins every time. Although I admit, sitting near the water’s edge at Lake Union and… Read More
