“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—


A light, funny, romantic mystery providing a Vegas escape appropriate for anyone looking for a good laugh. 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
