Lady Luck Runs Out
A Pet Psychic Mystery, Book # 2
Fall tourist season in St. Pete has kicked into high gear for Darwin Winters, pet psychic, but that doesn’t stop her from getting tangled up in a new murder investigation.
Rose Faraday, a gypsy fortune teller, has succumbed to a rattlesnake bite in her own condo. After a run-in with the victim’s traumatized cat, Darwin knows it was no freak accident. Can she find a way to prove it? Or will the killer get lucky and get away with murder? (Goodreads)
The characters are well rounded and well developed. Darwin is a hardworking, honest, caring person and she does not like to see anyone or any animal suffer. I enjoyed spending time with her and her friends Frankie and Sylvia. And it was nice to meet Darwin’s sister, Mallory, and get to know her better. We also got to know a little more about Darwin’s family history and learn a little more about her psychic ability and her “gifted” family. And it was good to see her detective boyfriend, Will, trying to keep an open mind about her psychic abilities.
The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy entertaining read. She is very talented in her descriptive writing and I could really picture the community and her pet boutique in my mind. She is also very talented creating suspense with the written word. The mystery was well plotted and there were enough twists and turns and red herrings thrown in to make this a difficult mystery to solve.
I highly recommend this book, and series, to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. With great characters, a psychic protagonist, humor and a well plotted mystery, this book has it all. I cannot wait to read the next one in the series.
