Sometimes rotten luck is better than no luck at all.
Jinxed from birth with mystifying bad luck, Murphy Drummer hasn't ventured beyond his backyard since he was a little boy. To remedy his loneliness, he became the master of a thousand hobbies. His unique, hobby-honed education, combined with an awe-inspiring jinx-recognition ability makes Murphy as amazing as his crazy luck.
When events demand that Murphy go in search of a new sanctuary, his relentless whammy plows a path of mayhem and miracles that leads Murphy to Joy Daley--a happy-go-lucky optimist who never forgot to thank her lucky stars. The comical, topsy-turvy effects from the collision of Lady Luck and Murphy's jinx mischievously upends the lives of everyone in their orbit.
At first, Murphy's victims question who he is--at last they'll be questioning who they aren't. A whimsical romantic comedy of wood-tapping proportions.
