Lost Under A Ladder
by Linda O. Johnston

A precious pup, great characters, and a delightful cozy setting
~Mochas, Mysteries and Meows

Lost Under a Ladder is an engaging light mystery….
~The Bookwyrm’s Hoard

I really enjoyed this mystery and I liked getting to know Rory and her dog, Pluckie…The mystery was well-written and engaging and I’m looking forward to spending more time with the residents of Destiny in future books. I love Ms. Johnston’s books and Lost Under A Ladder is a great start to what will be a very charming series.

This is a cozy mystery. With lots of drama, good suspense, some action, and lots of superstitions. I was kept guessing back and forth to different suspects.

The town is fun and whimsical and the characters endearing, definitely a small town and all that goes with that. Definitely a new series to watch.

You will love the story …
~Shelley’s Book Case

This is just the type of book I like to read. It was one I started and couldn’t put down. I could not wait to find out what was going to happen next!
~Kaisy Daisy’s Corner

Nearly everyone in town was a potential suspect. Attention swung one way and then another, with no one guessing correctly up until the very end. A delightful read and a most comfortable cozy.

I like the author’s flair for storytelling. Her dialogue is smooth and her characters are well developed.
~Socrates Book Reviews

I loved this story and can’t wait to see what is next for Justin, Rory, Martha and of course PLUCKIE!

Is it luck or is it . . . Destiny?

Are superstitions real? Rory Chasen doesn’t think so–until her beloved fiance walks under a ladder and is killed by a car five minutes later. Needing closure, Rory takes her dog Pluckie to a town called Destiny, where superstitions are a way of life.

Rory’s visit to Destiny takes an unexpected turn when Pluckie saves the life of Martha, the owner of the Lucky Dog Boutique. To show her gratitude, Martha offers Rory a job at the pet store. But when Martha becomes the prime suspect in the murder of the local bookshop owner, Rory refuses to believe that she would do it. Rory is convinced the real killer still roams Destiny’s streets, and she must uncover the truth before Martha is hauled off to jail.
