Penguin Luck - Book Review


Penguin Luck is Kay Mupetsonís first book and in some ways you can tell this. The story is about Doreen Lowe and her struggle to please her family but have her own life. She comes from a family of Holocaust survivors and is haunted by 3 ghosts of deceased child relatives who did not survive . After reading the back of the book, that is what intrigued me to start reading the story as I love books with a hint of paranormal. While the ghosts are sprinkled throughout the story, they werenít as much as I expected them to be.

Doreen works in a small Mahattan New York law firm and is engaged into one of the richest families in the pearl business. The life laying before her seems perfect, stable, and she will never go without anything material. But she just isnít happy which is what she seeks. She attends a meeting with some investment bankers and falls in love at first sight with Ty Rockwell. Her story begins to spin out of control. Within a few weeks, Doreen walks away from her life and everything is turned upside down but an impulsive decision. Her family and her ghosts are highly upset with the idea of her marrying out of her faith and going against their wishes. Doreen and all of the characters are really awesome characters. Mupetson is definitely a good at writing her characters!

The overall story was good. There are times that Kay jumps into the future with little to no transition point. This caught me off guard a few times. Her story is shorter than it should be in my opinion. This story could have been longer and better if she spend some more time telling her story. It was a quick, easy read. I was totally disappointed but it seemed like some of the story was missing pieces during certain scenes. Near the end of the book, there is one tragedy after another that really hooked me and made me want to finish the book.
