My rating: 3 of 5 stars
When destiny calls, you need to pick up …
On the surface, Kristi Danielson has it all. She’s lifestyle coach to the rich and famous, has a bestselling book to her name and is described by her fans as “the veritable Queen of how to lead a fulfilling life”.
But the harsh truth is that Kristi has never practiced what she preaches. Her home life is a mess, her relationship with artist boyfriend, Tom, not much better – and now she has to redeem herself before all is lost.
At her wit’s end, Kristi is driven to seek out the help of Patrick Blakeslee, a tarot card reader and psychic medium, in an attempt to make sense of the mounting panic she’s feeling.
But Patrick’s visits have an unexpected effect on Kristi, leaving her with more questions than answers – and a life-changing decision to make.
Recently, I have found myself enjoying a good lighthearted romance novel.
So, when the chance to review, “A Little Luck, A Lot of Fate” arose, I pounced at the opportunity.
Here are my thoughts.
Firstly, for the storyline, I found this novel to be unique; it was certainly not your typical romance. I felt that the use of metaphysical plotlines was intriguing, despite the fact that I don’t believe in physic mediums. Also, I found the underlying plot highly relatable; how many times have I given advice to someone that I have a hard time following myself?
Where I felt that the novel lost stars was with the characters; I had a difficult time liking any of them except Patrick.
Kristi could be a bit selfish. Tom was a parasitic leech, who held on to Kristi because she was “safe.” Finally, we have Jamie, who was extremely aggravating with her need to keep Kristi in the spotlight.
Overall, despite the fact that I wasn’t completely in love with this novel,
I did enjoy the read; it was light and didn’t require too much effort to finish. I would rate ” A Little Luck, A lot of Fate” a 3 – 3.5. So, I would likely recommend this story to other fans of the chick lit genre.
Thank you to Linn B. Halton and to Brook Cottage Books for the opportunity to read this novel.
