I'm a huge fan of cozy mysteries but wow this was just a complete miss for me I'm still not sure if it was meant to be making fun of the genre or it really was just a really bad story Rory a manager in a mega petstore comes to the town of Destiny to find out whether the superstition about bad luck from walking under ladders is true Her boyfriend had walked under one and died shortly after Yes that is the premise These type of mysteries are known for not having the deepest plots in literature but really Whether or not you get bad luck from walking under a ladder is the premise The town of Destiny makes it's living off being the superstition capital of the world The tourist trade in people interested in superstitions is how all the town makes it's money Every business in town centers around one superstition or another and it you are sick of the word superstition by now you'll be pulling your hair out by the end of the book because it's used in almost every other sentence When Rory gets there she takes her dog Pluckie the word Pluckie is another word that will have driven you out of your gourd by the end of the bookto a pet store which is full of not surprisingly superstition based pet items I bet you didn't know those existed I sure didn't but I do now But I digress Rory and Pluckie find the owner of the store on the floor in the back room in some type of health emergency so they call an ambulance to get her to the hospital From this point on having done what any normal human would do Rory and Pluckie are announced to be the luckiest things that ever walked the earth So now the owner of this pet store is in the hospital and asks Rory an person she doesn't know from Adam to manage her store for her while she's incapacitated The next day there's a murder Rory and Pluckie discover it she does everything the police tell her not to spends a lot of time mad at people when they've done nothing wrong and discovers that pets are welcome everywhere in Destiny even restaurants Nothing about the plot makes sense to me Why would you ask someone you've known 12 hours to take over your business your sole livelihood Why does everyone allow this absolute stranger to come into their town and act so arrogantly to them Why does the public school system of Destiny teach superstition in their curriculum These are the bigger mysteries to me than who killed whom I seriously considered throwing my Kindle across the room several times and I love my Kindle This story did not reuire suspension of disbelief It reuired taking your brain out and leaving it on the tableI received this book through Netgalley in return for an honest review

Lost Under a Ladder Superstition Mystery #1Titious beliefs are a way of lifeRory's visit to Destiny takes an unexpected turn when Pluckie saves Martha the owner of the Lucky Dog Boutiue While Martha recovers Rory reluctantly agrees to manage the pet shop for her But when Martha becomes the prime s. to you by OBS Reviewer DanieleLost Under a Ladder begins with Rory Chasen seeking answers and closure after her fiancé dies shortly after he walks under a ladder Are superstitions for real She plans to take a few days off from her job as an assistant manager of a chain pet store to go to the small town of Destiny a place engrossed in superstitions Every store restaurant inn and street name have superstitious monikers; all of the residents are superstitious even if for some only for appearances sake On her way to see the bookstore owner touted as a superstition expert her dog Pluckie tugs her into the local pet shop and there she finds the proprietor ill in the back room Pluckie is instantly deemed a hero and good luck charm and Martha the shop owner is so grateful that she begs Rory to step in as manager of her shop while she recovers This is a pretty farfetched scenario no Maybeor it could just be attributed to the power of luck Rory agrees to stay indefinitely after the bookstore owner is found murdered and Martha is proclaimed the prime suspect Rory seeks to clear Martha’s name and she is still on the fence about the validity of superstitions She is befriended by the local chief of police Justin and they work together and separately to solve the crimeLost Under a Ladder is the first book in a new series and it is a light breezy uick read cut in the standard cozy mystery mold It is somewhat predictable but provides a nice foundation for uirky characters and unusual causes of death all related to superstitions for future installments The characters are stereotypically drawn but are not unlikeable and have the potential to grow into something much meatier There is potential fun to be had hereI do appreciate the inclusion of Pluckie as central to the plot without giving her supernatural powers or the ability to talk etc She was just a sweet smart dog There did seem to be unnecessary reference to a lot of trips outside to do her business though I do wish the author had incorporated explanations and maybe a bit of history of the superstitions I would have found that interesting and I am sure that not all readers are familiar with all of the superstitions mentioned in the book Also Justin seemed way too tolerant of Rory baiting the killer I also feel like Rory did not find the answers she was seeking and thus it felt somewhat dangling But these are minor complaints SPOILER ALERT I am usually good at guessing whodunit long before the conclusion of the book but not here I think that is because I flat out dismissed him as far too obvious a choice and his motive too banalI enjoyed Lost Under a Ladder and look forward to future installments in the series I recommend this to dog lovers and those interested in all things superstitiousOBS would like to thank the publisher for supplying a free copy of this title in exchange for an honest review Brought to you by OBS Reviewer Andrahttpopenbooksocietycomarticlelo
