Everyone Has a Hidden Talent

As the Chief Problem Solver for the Babylon, Las Vegas’s most over-the-top destination, solving the occasional murder is in Lucky’s job description.

A rapier wit, her weapon of choice.


Tonight, someone turned a young woman, a Jimmy Choo embedded in her carotid, into a hood ornament for the latest Ferrari in the Babylon’s dealership.

And one of the big-name players in a huge poker tournament ends up dead.

Are the two deaths related?

Lucky starts making connections putting her in the crosshairs of a killer.

Her former lover, Teddie, comes back from his rock tour to deliver a bombshell.

Then life deals another major complication to her personal life…and it’s not going to be pretty.

Can Lucky handle the fallout and catch a killer?

A light, funny, romantic mystery providing a Vegas escape appropriate for anyone looking for a good laugh. Get your copy today!

    Meh. Will/she won't she is starting to take away from the whole mystery plot.
  • Rating: 2 out of 5 stars
    I was disappointed. I was expecting some romance (with all of the men in Lucky's life, you'd think she'd be snogging like crazy!) but there was very little romance at all!
    They mystery of who killed pretty woman in the Ferarri was good. I don't think I would continue on with this series or read the older titles though.

    Lucky O'Toole continues to grow on me, and I think it's unfair to always compare her to Stephanie Plum. Lucky, progeny of a Vegas big wig, has worked her way up in the hospitality business in casinos, no less, a place where repeat customers, conventions and "whales", all vie for her attention. She's tough and she's smart and it's not her fault dead bodies keep appearing at the Babylon hotel. Her easy friendship with the police helps ease what others might construe as nosiness into official business. Like the Plum books, there are some great secondary characters, Vegas being on of the best. (less)

    Lucky Bastard by Deborah CoontsWanted to read this book because of the locale: Las Vegas strip.Lucky has a lot going on in her personal life (others in the family) and her business life-she runs a strip mall on the strip.She is called when a dead body is found and wishes she had not answered the call.Fascinating, love to learn about new things: red contact lenses! Love how they solve why things happened and the props used.The book cover really fits the book content. Seems just when they get a handle on one aspect of the murder, there are 10 other questions and theygo clue to clue to find the answers. There are a lot of characters in the book but they do not swarm down all at once to overcome you. It's easy to keep them straight.I loved hearing of the Spring Mountains as my visit to LV we walked around the area there.This series sounds like it could go on forever because there are a lot of things that come up at casion/restuarant/hotels in LV.I received this book from JKCommunications in exchange for my honest opinion.
