With a Little Luck By Caprice Crane + Giveaway

Berry Lambert is a late night DJ who is as superstitious as they come. She has rules upon rules of does and do nots when it comes to her life. And anyone who is superstitious knows bad things happen in threes, so when guy one and two are disastrous she is ready for guy number three to be a failure. Against her better judgment she falls for guy number three anyway. When out of the blue she meets a guy who seems absolutely ‘right’ for her, heck he even sports a tattoo of a four leaf clover! Berry finds herself not sure what to believe anymore and realizes maybe it’s time for a change. Will she take a chance on love or hold out on luck?

With a Little Luck starts off with the first few chapters letting you get to know how deeply superstitious Berry is and for me I started getting bored. I just wasn’t sure I was going to keep reading, but Crane is a very witty writer and was keeping me just enough entertained. I am so glad I did keep reading because once the story took off I was hooked! I really fell for Berry and all her little quarks and was routing for her the whole time. It seemed she was so aware of all her superstitions, but never really trusted her gut. Here is a sweet character who you can’t help but want to win at life.

This is a definite recommend! If you are looking for a great story with laugh out loud moments here you go! This was my first time reading Caprice Crane and I know I will book looking for her other books!

  1. Sounds like a wonderful book! I have a thing about 666....I don't isssue any inventory from work with those #s....I also don't walk under ladders and get squishimish if a black cat crosses in from of my path!

  2. I follow you on facebook and I have an email subscription as well.

  3. I would love to win this book.

  4. I'd love a shot at this one. Thanks!

    I'm not really superstitious, except in a joking manner. We'll "knock on wood", but not because we really believe it does any good. I'm friendly with a lot of Jehovah's Witnesses, who don't believe in "crossing your fingers" due to its pagan ties. So I sometimes will jokingly say I'm "crossing my pagan fingers and toes".

  5. I would love to win a copy of this book. It sounds like a great read. When I was little my very Italian grandmother would rush us into the house if a flock of black birds flew over us cursing at them in Italian. Not sure why, but I still to this day do not like birds.

  6. I don't think black cats are bad luck but I do think the number 66#
    Also think 7 is a lucky number.

  7. I don't like the 6$$ either.

  8. I will not walk under a ladder - not that I run across that very often but I just would not be able to do that.

    Thanks for the chance!

  9. I have always considered 4 Leaf Clovers to be good luck. I guess that's why they are so hard to find!

    This sounds like a great book! Thanks for the chance!
