Phoebe Halliwell may well be ready to turn over a new leaf as a single girl, but her newly redemonised husband, Cole, isn't ready to let her go. Aware of a supernatural plot against the Charmed Ones, Cole keeps watch over Phoebe, and intercedes at the moment of the battle, only to accidentally create a rip in time. Cole disappears, dragging the sisters with him, only to emerge in Hollywood during World War II...

Luck be a Lady sets up an interesting series of events that sees each of the sisters taking on very different roles in a bid to blend in with their new surroundings. Paige poses as a young starlet - well what better career to go for when trapped in Hollywood? Piper is drawn to search out a younger, and still human Leo. Meanwhile a demon henchman is working his black magic on Paige, which could spell disaster for the Charmed Ones.

Possibly the first problem about being stuck in a different era is that currency issues become a problem. How can these accidental travellers afford to get by in 1940s America? Cole has the solution - kinda bad, kinda illegal, but they are in dire need of money.

Also, ordering simple things like Mochaccino are right off the menu, as the girls soon find out. Ordering a coffee in the 1940s is not as complex as it is today. And they certainly don't serve decaf.

A worthwhile addition to the Charmed series, and it has a rather touching conclusion. Fans won't be disappointed.
