Four Of A Kind - Shannon Clayton (2014)


Shannon Clayton offers up a cute and entertaining story about a woman who is so focused on recognising the signs of good luck in her life, she nearly misses out on capturing it when it's right in front of her. After a publicity event she is managing goes horribly wrong, her boyfriend breaks up with her and her apartment is damaged in a fire all in the same night, Deborah Hayes decides she needs to focus her energies on ensuring she doesn't miss any more signs of trouble on the horizon. She goes over the top in her obsession to attract good luck from decorating her apartment with feng shui principles, getting her palm read, having her chakras balanced and going for a tarot reading. What makes this story so entertaining is that despite all of the signs that may be obvious to most everyone around her, Deborah has a hard time seeing what's in front of her and is just one false step from complete disaster through most of this book. In addition to trying to decide which of the four men currently in her life is 'the one', Deborah also has to figure out who is sabotaging her at work. With the help of her best friend, Val, Deborah embarks on a journey of self-awareness to help her find the happiness she seeks. Though I found myself getting a little annoyed at Deborah's inability to make a decision or choose a path, I liked the character and was able to relate to her very easily. The story moves at a good pace and the author does a great job of throwing in some surprises that I didn't see coming. I recommend this book for its interesting and different plot line and think it would make a great addition to your list to read this summer. (SH)
