Description

"Evanovich...with a dash of CSI." - Publishers Weekly (review of Lucky Stiff)

Everyone Has a Hidden Talent

For Lucky O'Toole it's murder...solving it.

Tonight she feels like committing it.

Her live-in lover, Teddie, has rock-starred out and taken his show on the road.

Her mother is a pregnant hormonal weapon of mass destruction.

But, as the Chief Problem Solver for the Babylon, Las Vegas's most over-the-top destination, murder isn't in her job description.

SO DAMN LUCKY

Renowned magician, Dimitri Fortunoff apparently dies while trying to pull a Houdini.

Then his body actually disappears.

Lucky is less than amused. She has enough problems already.

Paxton Dane, a handsome Texan long on charisma, short on history, is pressing for an opening.

And the new French chef is equal parts charm and venom, seasoned with a dash of irresistible.

But Lucky can't shake the question: did Fortunoff really die or is this some elaborate hoax?

With his connections to the UFO convention in town, outlandish theories abound.

Love, laughter, and a few evil spirits from the Great Beyond or the Great Void--

Join the fun today!

AN INTERVIEW WITH DEBORAH COONTS

Why did you decide to write humor?

I'm not sure I decided to add snark to the Lucky, books, specifically to Lucky's own voice, it just happened that way. When I was a kid, my mouth always got me into trouble. Finally, I've found a way to harness the sarcasm for the Forces of Good--or at least in a way not to anger my grandmother. And when Lucky started talking to me, she had a strong dose of sass in her.

The Lucky O'Toole Vegas Adventure series is hard to categorize. Is that by design?

When I set out to write Wanna Get Lucky?, I knew I wanted to write a romp through Las Vegas. I had the characters and the setting but no real understanding of narrative drive. So, I threw a young woman out of a tour helicopter into the middle of the Pirate Show and let the story unfold. A bit of murder to keep the plot moving, some wisecracking and Vegas mischief to make you laugh, and some romance to keep it interesting. A bit of a mash up, but it works.

PRAISE FOR So Damn Lucky

"Lucky's latest lark brims with the over-the-top ridiculousness that I love about Vegas. Fans of the series will fall in love all over again, and new readers will look forward to her next escapade." - Publishers Weekly

"Lucky's the kind of gal who will make any heart beat faster." - Kirkus Reviews

"A whirlwind of a kooky crime novel, and readers will enjoy every minute of it. Coonts provides the perfect solution for readers waiting for the next Stephanie Plum book." - Booklist

"So Damn Lucky is wacky and witty, chaotic and compelling, and the title aptly describes how you'll feel after you've read the book." - USA Today

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 05, 2011 – In the first chapter of Coonts s engaging Lucky O Toole adventure (after 2011 s Lucky Stiff), magician Dimitri Fortunoff dies on stage while re-enacting a famous Houdini escape. Lucky, as head of customer relations at Las Vegas s posh Babylon Hotel, must do damage control, but even for this six-foot, multitalented beauty it isn t easy. Lucky suspects Dimitri was the Masked Houdini, who enraged many Vegas magicians by claiming he would reveal all of Houdini s closely held secrets. Could one of them have killed him? The investigation takes a bizarre turn when Dimitri s body vanishes and Lucky receives a death threat, delivered by a stuffed rabbit. Meanwhile, the continual shenanigans at the hotel keep Lucky hopping. Whether tactfully dissuading a senior citizen from marrying her dog or discreetly extricating an amorous couple from their complex sex toys, Lucky proves first-rate at her job. Fans of lighter mysteries will have fun.

Customer Reviews

Lucky series

The first book was free thru IBooks. Fun writing style, personable characters, good story line, great sense of humor. No graphic love scenes,minimal swearing, but you sure get the idea. The writer keeps it classy and entertaining. Her books are stand alone or can follow each other. As an avid reader, I'm glad I bought books 2,3 and 4, and about to grab another. Enjoy.

Fun

I love her characters and their lives! No other mysteries can say --my mom runs a -----house and my boyfriend used to be a drag queen! I've gotten real tired of one lady swarming over two men. She is truly in love--and has the same doubts as the rest of us! Wonderful--refreshing!

Lucky is so exciting!

I have read 3 of the books in the series. I am already addicted!
