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.

My Review

What I like most of the cozy mystery romances is that they typically are set in small towns. Every time I enjoy to discover many small cozy and particular locations. The city of this book is Destiny, a small California town closely linked to superstitions. They are taking classes for tourists to fight bad luck. Even for the shops are chosen names that drive away bad luck, like Rory Chasen's shop, Lucky Dog Boutique, specializing in the sale of lucky items for pets. She has just created a line of lucky items for dogs. But there is someone in town who steals them and replace them with items that bring bad luck. After the culprit has confessed is found dead with a Rory's objects. She is the prime suspect, and with her boyfriend and  detective Justin must investigate to clear her name.
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.
Recommended for those who love cozy mystery, animals and superstition
