I'm thrilled to be the first stop on the book tour for author 
Linda O. Johnston!
Linda's newest book releases today! 
Book 2 in the Superstition Mystery series.

Rory Chasen, now the manager of the Lucky Dog Boutique in Destiny, California, is delighted when her best friend Gemma arrives a day early for her visit. Gemma’s just broken up with her boyfriend in Los Angeles, so Rory is especially eager to cheer her up. But before they get a chance to talk, two of the town’s most eligible bachelors sidle in. Their amorous advances—and an unexpected job offer—seem to take Gemma’s mind off her ex . . . until he arrives in Destiny.
As Gemma tries to sort out what to do, one of her suitors is murdered, leaving Rory to wonder if a black cat has crossed Gemma’s path. Is Rory’s friend guilty of murder—or is she just having a run of bad luck?

Luck has nothing to do with author Linda O. Johnston’s Superstition series being as popular as it is. It’s pure talent on the author’s part that gets the credit. KNOCK ON WOOD, the second installment in this wonderful series is just as delightful as book one, UNDER A LADDER.

It was fun to be back in Destiny, CA where superstitions are taken very seriously. After all, the whole town revolves around them. It’s so clear that Ms. Johnston did her research while writing this book. She mentions superstitions, and good and bad luck items that I have never heard of.

KNOCK ON WOOD is a well written mystery with a great plot that was more than it seemed. Every time I was sure I knew the answers to who and why, something would happen causing me to doubt myself. Ms. Johnston did a remarkable job keeping the answers just out of reach until she was ready for the reveal.   

I for one am knocking on wood that a third book in this series will be sliding down the rainbow to us sooner than later!

Get your copy of KNOCK ON WOOD now. But be careful not to step on any cracks along the way!


Linda O. Johnston's first published fiction appeared in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine and won the Robert L. Fish Memorial Award for Best First Mystery Short Story of the year. Since then, Linda, a former lawyer who is now a full-time writer, has published more short stories, novellas, and 39 romance and mystery novels, including the Pet Rescue Mystery Series, a spinoff from her Kendra Ballantyne, Pet-Sitter mysteries for Berkley Prime Crime.
