Wanna Get Lucky

Wanna Get Lucky

Deborah Coonts

5 out of 5

I really enjoyed this new series by Deborah Coontz.

Lucky O'Toole is Head of Customer Relations at the Babylon, a new luxury resort on the Strip in Las Vegas. On a daily basis she sees her share of the misfits and the bizarre but since her mother is one of the top madams in Las Vegas, you really have to hit the weird scale hard to even begin to fluster Ms O'Toole.

So when a woman falls to her death from a sightseeing helicopter into the middle of a Pirate show, Lucky doesn't see it as just another unlucky victim. She knows this woman and there most assuredly is more to this story. Add in Lucky's new love interest Teddy, the premiere female impersonator in Las Vegas, and you have quite an interest cast of characters. Though some parts of the story are predictable, the never ending shenanigans that Lucky must deal with on a daily basis are what kept this book interesting to me.

The adage, "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" really does apply in this book.

I look forward to the next in the series, and I certainly hope that Ms Coonts can keep the pace and tomfoolery alive and kicking throughout this series.
