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.

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.
My review: 
I enjoyed reading this book and getting to know the town of Destiny California. Rory Chasen is a well developed character who is trying to get past that her fiance was killed right after walking under a ladder. She takes a job at a pet shop after her dog Pluckie saves the store owner from death.When a book store owner is killed and Martha is lead suspect , Rory wants to do evething that she can to find out who the killer is before they strike again.   The story is a good one and you will like it from the start. You will love the story and the characters will stay with you until the end.
