“Evanovich…with a dash of CSI.” – Publishers Weekly (review of Lucky Stiff)
Death by future mother-in-law.
It’s a thing.
Lucky O’Toole is sure of it. What she isn’t sure of is how to deal with it. In Paris, far away from her Vegas home, Lucky is out of her element and out of ideas.
Especially when a fortune of rare wine is stolen from her fiancé’s family in a daring heist using the tunnels under Paris.
When an unsavory man from Lucky’s past shows up to implicate her in the crime, Lucky is left to debate the merits of a firing squad over a guillotine or…
She could find the wine and clear her name.
Easy…until people start showing up dead and everyone seems to want Lucky’s head on a pike.
Especially the lead police detective investigating the murder and the theft who happens to also be the torch-carrying flame of her betrothed.
Sensing an opening, Teddie, Lucky’s former lover, in Paris to open a musical review in Montmartre, gives her a shoulder to cry on.
A wise woman, Lucky runs, risking life and liver to find the wine and catch the killer before he kills again.
Then, and only then, will she be free to make a choice about her future.
A light, funny, romantic mystery providing a Paris escape appropriate for anyone looking for a good laugh. Get your copy today!

Lucky stay in Vegas
I love the series but I feel it looses something when Lucky leaves Vegas!
Love these novels! Whether surrounded by VEGAS or out and about in Paris, Lucky keeps me entertained! Keep’m coming!
Series Has Gone Downhill
I’ve enjoyed these quick reads and I love Lucky but this series has taken a turn I just can’t forgive anymore- the writing quality has gone downhill. Every sentence is a cliche or an exaggeration and it often feels as though there is no editor or fact checker.
No, I don’t expect the books to be R-E-A-L-I-T-Y and they are “throw-away reads” but they can still be decent and well written! It’s hard not to want to throw a book at the wall when you write completely fabricated things about real places- for example, the Bellagio fountains are 8 feet deep and it’s impossible for someone to chase a villain through them!
Please, please get a better editor!
