by Linda O. Johnston
Linda O. Johnston’s Superstition Mystery series will keep you on your toes. The characters are likable and written with emotion and depth. The mysteries are engaging and the author tosses in a few red herrings to help disguise the true suspect(s).
~Sapphyria’s Book Reviews
I love this book and the adventures found in Destiny to see whose wronged and by whom and how the luck whether good or bad play into it.
Unlucky Charms is ideal for dog lovers, for mystery fans, and for anyone who loves a quirky small-town setting. The mystery is well-done (both of them!) and kept me guessing all the way to the end.
~Reading is my SuperPower
This was an excellent story from beginning to end, with a fascinating mystery that had me stumped.
~ Lisa Ks Book Reviews
The mystery itself is nicely complex with lots of suspects, interesting motives, and red herrings to spice things up.
~Cozy Up With Kathy
Destiny is a quaint, almost fairy-tale like town where superstitions are real and good luck charms are a necessity. I might not like to live there, but it is fun to visit for a while!
~The Book’s the Thing
I found this book to be charming (small pun intended),…I thought that Ms. Johnston had created the perfect murder and crimes, for this town.
It ‘s a well-written romance, highly addictive, a mystery well developed that it is difficult to solve before the end. There is also a fair dose of romance and the characters are funny and believable.
The author gives us a fast-paced mystery that readers can easily follow along and try to solve.

Unlucky Charms (A Superstition Mystery)
3rd in Series
Midnight Ink (October 8, 2016)
Paperback: 288 pages
E-Book ASIN: B01APSYQ5G
Rory Chasen, manager of the Lucky Dog Boutique in Destiny, California, hopes her new line of good-luck doggy toys will be a hit, especially the stuffed rabbits with extra-large feet. The timing of the line’s debut proves ill-fated, though, as several local shops―including Rory’s―are ransacked and vandalized with spilled salt and other unlucky charms.
The most likely culprit is disgruntled real estate agent Flora Curtival, whose issues with the town give her a motive. But when Flora is murdered and one of Rory’s toy rabbits is found with the body, Rory needs all the luck she can get while trying to determine just who killed the superstitious vandal.
