This is the third book in the Rae Hatting series, and it's just as good as the first two.
Rae and Luke are now partners, and they’re assigned to a case where a serial killer is leaving bodies positioned like Tarot cards. Their investigations take them to New Orleans where a national convention for psychics and mediums has been scheduled. Along the way, they meet some interesting characters, like Sabine's grandmother, Evangeline. As they follow the clues, it dawns on them they might be dealing with someone in law enforcement. And they could be the next target.
Rae and Luke’s characters evolve more in this book, as their mutual attraction sets them at odds against each other. Not a lot of tension, but enough to make it tantalizing. I really enjoyed the bathroom scene.
The story traveled along at a good pace, it was well-written and the characters were well-developed. Between the grisly deaths, and surprise revelations, the book kept me entertained.
What I didn’t like: the switching of first POV from Rae and Luke. Most authors who use that method, do it at each chapter. Osborne does it during the same chapter, which can be confusing . Because of that, I couldn’t get quite as involved in the story as I wanted.
If you love a good thriller or serial killer tale, then you need to read this story. I’m looking forward to following Rae and Luke in their adventure. I give my 4 feathers.

The Rae Hatting mysteries are a growing, thriving story-in-progress, and I love this latest one most of all. I enjoyed Crushed Gardenias and The Fairest of Them, but Misfortune is where this writer finds her pace and Rae Hatting becomes (to me, anyway) a living, breathing person. Some of the scenes in the book (ahem … the bathroom scene!) are laugh-out-loud funny while still developing the characters and relationships, and other scenes (one murder I won't spoil) are particularly gruesome, gristly and just … eww! Like seriously, this person is way past the point of needing some psychiatric help! (Um … I mean the killer, not necessarily the author!) The book is fun and funny in parts, gory in other parts, and – most importantly of all – entertaining in all the parts. Kudos!

HASH(0xa71c3a98) out of 5 stars Entertaining read elements of a good story. 20 January 2016
By AJ - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Misfortune has a unique style that allows you, the reader , to understand how each character views the same situation. I felt that the characters where realistic, and though slow at times, the pace picked up. The author did not get bogged down with to many police procedural details and focused more on the development of characters--which for me is a plus. I have not read the first book in this series, and I did not feel lost. Entertaining read, recommend.

HASH(0xa71be714) out of 5 stars Another epic page turner! 16 April 2016
By Twisted Book Curmudgeon - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
***** 5 Cranky Stars *****

Yet again, this author does not disappoint. Obsorne’s way with words and wonderful plot make this another page turner.

I love the characters have real problems and are intelligent enough to master them.

In this story, Rae is again faced with a serial killer, who ritualistically places the victims in poses based on tarot card. As an aside, where does the author come up with these psychopathic killer’s themes? They are awesome.

Rae has to be my favorite character in a mystery story. She is cool and strong, and her compassion is endless. I welcomed the return of Luke in this work and also, seeing Rae with Grace, her adopted daughter, was wonderful to see.

Rae and Luke work well together. The romantic tension and funny moments lighten the mood in what is, at times, a gruesome crime drama.

Every page is a new discovery and as Obsorne uses first person point of view, the reader gets more of an insight into these well-rounded characters.

The descriptions of Washington and New Orleans are accurate. The psychic fair was a great way to keep me on the edge of my kindle. I think the emotions and reactions are believable. I was laughing, crying, and cheering for them.

I look forward to the next book in the series and can’t wait to catch up with Rae some more. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

I will continue to read and recommend Heather Osborne’s books to everyone. Long may she write!

HASH(0xa7c9fcb4) out of 5 stars I want more Rae Hatting 1 May 2016
By David Williams - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
The almost immediate back and forth between Rae Hatting and another character in Misfortune is a very nice counterpoint to the suspense and wondering when the next twist will come in this very well written book. As always Heather Osborne has outdone herself in this detective novel. The detail is astonishing and i find myself wound into the book again just like the other two i have read from the Rae Hatting series. I don't want to put the book (or in this case, my tablet) down and stop reading. From the moment i started reading i was sucked back into the story and life of Rae Hatting and i'm loving every minute.

There as so many twists and turns in this novel that it's crazy hard to keep up sometimes. Little details that i find myself wanting to remember but can't, and then reminded of later on and then remember and have an 'aha' moment. I love the way Heather Osborne writes the Rae Hatting novels, it keeps the reader in suspense and wondering what is coming next, this novel doesn't disappoint. I loved every moment all the way up to the end. The only thing bad i have to say about this novel is the same thing i had to say about the others. It was way too short for me, i was left wanting more and more. I cannot wait till the next novel in the Rae Hatting series is released at the end of this year. Till then i'll be yearning for more of Heather Osborne's detective novels. Thank you so much for writing such wonderful books Heather.

HASH(0xa7e39804) out of 5 stars I knew right from the blurb that I would enjoy this story and I was right 25 November 2015
By UIBB - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I was given an ARC of this book for an honest review. This is the second full-length book in the series. I knew right from the blurb that I would enjoy this story and I was right.
Luke and Rae are on the case. This time, a serial killer is using the Major Arcana of the Tarot deck. This leads them to New Orleans during Mardi Gras for a psychic convention.
The book started off a little slow for me, ​but I was caught up in the story about 1/3 of the way in. I couldn’t wait to learn more about the case and to find out who the serial killer is.
If you love mysteries with just a hint of romance, New Orleans, Mardi Gras, psychics, cemeteries, and serial killers then definitely check out this book. With that being said, remember that this is part of a series… I recommend the entire series!

HASH(0xa71c3b94) out of 5 stars Fantastic book! Loved it! 11 December 2015
By Anna Bax - Published on
Misfortune! What a fantastic book. Well edited, too. There was never a dull moment. It's packed full with loads of crime scenes and investigations that keep you intrigued and guessing. Also, there are a few laugh-out-loud moments that I loved and they helped lighten the mood of the book a bit. So, I'm one happy reader.

The rush of Melanie and Luke's relationship (from The Fairest of Them) was sort of explained, and now I'm feeling the slow-burn of a promising relationship between Luke and Rae. So, as a romance book-lover, this has me very happy!

I can't wait to see what's in store for Luke and Rae's next adventure!

*Please note that I did win an Advanced Reading Copy of this book, but it didn't alter my opinion of this book in any way.
