Review: A Little Luck, A Lot of Fate by Linn B Halton

A Little Luck, A Lot of FateWhen destiny calls, you need to pick up …

On the surface, Kristi Danielson has it all. She’s lifestyle coach to the rich and famous, has a bestselling book to her name and is described by her fans as “the veritable Queen of how to lead a fulfilling life”.

But the harsh truth is that Kristi has never practiced what she preaches. Her home life is a mess, her relationship with artist boyfriend, Tom, not much better – and now she has to redeem herself before all is lost.

At her wit’s end, Kristi is driven to seek out the help of Patrick Blakeslee, a tarot card reader and psychic medium, in an attempt to make sense of the mounting panic she’s feeling.

But Patrick’s visits have an unexpected effect on Kristi, leaving her with more questions than answers – and a life-changing decision to make.

Shona's review 5 of 5 stars

I love Haltons writing, she has a way of showing you the heart of people, they aren't just characters on a page, they are real people, as real as you and me. And real people mean real issues and real emotions that you just cant help getting caught up in. At the heart of this book is Kristi, trying to make sense of her life and figure out where it's heading. She has some tough decisions to make and its understandable why she is having problems.

I loved Kristi and Eve. Even though both ladies had some pretty serious stuff to be dealing with, they each took the time to help each other, and in doing so became great friends.
Patrick was fantastic, so kind and caring. And ultimately completely unselfish.
Tom was not my most favourite person. For a lot of the book I felt he put additional pressure on Kristi, at a time when she needed those around her to be a shoulder for her to lean on he was there almost insisting she be his support. But in many ways Tom was so much like Kristi, not sure where life was heading, and relying on the only person he felt truly understood him.

This is a fantastic read, it's heartwarming and emotional, and ultimately will leave you with a warm glow when you have finished reading.
