Unlucky is my second visit to the weird world inhabited by Dr. Matilda Schmidt, a demigod, a sexy hitman, and various mythical creatures. Unlucky picks up right where Unlovable left off…literally. At the end of Unlovable, Dr. Schmidt finds a valentine with a message…pay up or die. Unlucky begins with her looking at the valentine.
Accused of stealing gold from an infamous Irish street gang, Paranormal Psychologist Matilda Schmidt will die in exactly five days if she doesn’t cough it up—guilty or not. With minutes ticking away and her office overrun by a leprechaun who’s loopier than he is lucky, Matilda makes a deal with a demigod—give him one night in her bed and he’ll help her locate the missing gold.
But when Matilda’s recent one-night stand shows up with inside information about the heist she’s being framed for, she finds herself caught between a hit man and a demigod both offering to protect her—if they don’t kill each other first.
If Matilda’s luck doesn’t change soon, death might be the only thing waiting for her at the end of the rainbow.
These stories are short, less than 100 pages usually, and could easily be read back to back without losing momentum. They’re fun, quick reads that I have recommended several times. The wit and humor are great, the characters get “lucky” more than once, and that darn secretary…well, you’ll just have to read it to find out about her favorite closet.
I finished Unlucky and am already looking forward to Unhoppy, book 3, because I’m hopping to see if the good doctor pays up on her deal with Crixus!
