Did Lucky really win the lottery and if so, where is the ticket hidden?
Who knew for sure if he truly was Pittsburgh's newest millionaire?
Join Fiona and the gang for this winning cozy mystery that's sure to keep you betting on the suspects!
Good Luck to Murder is the fifth in the Fiona Quinn Mystery series. I’ve read the first four books and continue to enjoy this series. In this installment, Lucky Maguire music teacher and Fiona’s pal buys lottery tickets for both of them. Lucky jokingly tells Fiona his is a winner. When Lucky is found dead without the winning ticket the suspects begin to pile up.
When Fiona’s next door neighbor’s sister moves in with her brother she is annoyed because she insists she’s a psychic who prides herself with getting rid of spirits. What unfolds is another hilarious adventure as Fiona and Nathan try to figure out who was responsible. I enjoyed the addition of the psychic, it made for a lot of laughs especially when one spirit gets to close to her.
This series will suck you in and not let you go until the book is finished.
The narrator did an excellent job of bringing this story to life and I hope she narrates future books! She has truly nailed Fiona’s and the gang’s characters. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a fun cozy mystery filled with an eclectic cast of characters.
I’m looking forward to book 6. I can’t wait to join Fiona and Nathan on their next adventure.
Overall Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟
For twenty-six years C.S. McDonald’s life whirled around a song and a dance. Classically trained at Pittsburgh Ballet Theater School, The Pittsburgh Dance Alloy, and many others, she became a professional dancer and choreographer. During that time, she choreographed many musicals and an opera for the Pittsburgh Savoyards. In 2011 she retired from her dance career to write. Under her real name, Cindy McDonald, she writes murder-suspense and romantic suspense novels. In 2014 she added the pen name, C.S. McDonald, to write children’s books for her grandchildren. In 2016 she added the Fiona Quinn Mysteries to that expansion. She decided to write the cozy mystery series that everyone, including teens and tweens, can read and enjoy. Presently, the Fiona Quinn Mysteries includes nine books with a tenth slated for 2021. The books are also available on audio, narrated by Maren Swenson Waxenberg.
Cindy’s newest venture is The Owl’s Nest Mysteries. Once again, she has set her cozy mystery in Pittsburgh and the female protagonist, Alexa Owl, is much different from Fiona Quinn. The Owl’s Nest Mysteries has a little grit, a little time travel, a little romance, and a whole lot of cozy!
Ms. McDonald resides on her Thoroughbred farm known as Fly by Night Stables near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with her husband, Bill, and her poorly behaved Cocker Spaniel, Allister.
