Is it Luck Or is it DestinyRory Chasen never thought superstitions were real until her beloved fiance is killed after walking under a ladder To find closure and the truth about superstitions Rory takes her dog Pluckie to a town called Destiny where supers. I have never really thought of myself as being superstitious but as I read this book I realized all the superstitions I really participate in during my days I always pick up pennies try not to step on cracks or walk under ladders I wish upon stars cross my fingers and What an interesting idea for a cozy mystery series Destiny California a town that was founded on a superstition Gold at the end of a Rainbow and continues to prosper on the theme The stores are all appropriately named such as the Lucky Dog Boutiue the Shamrock Steakhouse Wish Upon A Star Children’s Shop and The other great thing is that this is a pet centered town Pets are allowed in pretty much any store and even in restaurants and cafes at least on the patiosWhen Rory Chasen’s fiancée is killed shortly after walking under a ladder Rory decides find out about superstitions After reading a book about superstitions she decides to pay a visit to Destiny California where the author lives and owns a bookstore She doesn't really believe in these type of things but she can’t help wonder if there’s something to it and if superstition could possibly be the cause of her fiancee’s death She uickly learns that life in Destiny is much different than her life in LA and she enjoys itShortly after arriving in Destiny Rory and her dog Pluckie stumble upon an older woman who appears to have had a heart attack or something and they call 911 As it turns out Martha owns the Lucky Dog Boutiue and needs someone to run it during her illness As one of the superstitions that Martha believes in is that Pluckie being black and white is lucky and that Rory actually was the assistant manager of a large Pet store in LA she is able to convince Rory to help her out as long as she stays in Destiny This sets the stage for this interesting mystery Of course there is a murder and Martha surprisingly is a suspect Rory decides to help convince the police and others that Martha could not possibly be guilty There are a lot of superstitions explained in the book and many of them are fun if not new ones to me There is a love interest in the story the Sherriff but I like how they are slowly becoming friends especially due to the fact that Rory's fiancee died not that long ago The characters in the town are interesting and all share various beliefs about superstitions Because this is the first book in the series we meet many of the townspeople but do not get to know them in depth I am sure we will meet them again in further books and develop a friendship with them Rory is a strong character and it shows when she jumps right in to handle running the store the two employees and Martha’s nephew who wants the store for himself Nothing scared off Rory not even the pet napping of her dear PluckieThe story is fast paced and a relatively uick read I like the author’s skill at storytelling I’m looking forward to reading in this series I would recommend this book to cozy mystery lovers pet lovers and those interested in superstitions
