Book Review: Unlucky Charms by Linda O. Johnston

Updated on March 9, 2022

Honestly, I can say that I was finally glad when I came to the third and last installment of the series.

I know, I should have just stopped after the first failure, but, I've always thought that maybe in time, a series can improve itself, but, while the plots could have been better, this last installment is a little better.

Rory and Gemma have decided that they're going to stay in Destiny, California and have decided that they're going to move out of the Rainbow B&B (just as a side note, it's never mentioned as to if they had ever gone back to Los Angeles to clean up their affairs down there) and both have become success stories in town.

They both have new and exciting romances and Rory has designed dog toys for the Lucky Dog Boutique. She still plans on buying the shop from it's current owner (which became frustrating in the first two novels since she keeps referring to the shop as hers) and has been thinking of ways to save up the money.

But while the girls are trying to figure out their next move, a series of break-ins have been going on throughout the town and even the Lucky Dog isn't safe.

When real estate agent Flora Curtival is murdered, Rory becomes the prime suspect since she was found with one of the rabbit toys that she designed.

By this time, I was already thinking negative thoughts about the book and I really couldn't wait until it was over so that I could pack it up and sent it off to one of my friends.

I'm not saying that the series is extremely horrible, but, the essence of the superstitions should have been explored a little further. The people of Destiny live to a different beat (and that creepy weekly town "greeting" thing) and I think that would have been a perfect angle for the story.

Maybe I thought the series wasn't that great since these out of town girls receive offers of employment and romance less than an hour since arriving. It's unbelievable and I kept wanting to know why they didn't go back to Los Angeles.

If the series does resume, maybe these points should be looked at, but otherwise, it's safe to say that reading the series may be superstitious to some.
