Editorial Reviews

Review

"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 on So Damn Lucky
 
"Lucky's the kind of gal who will make any heart beat faster."
--Kirkus Reviews on So Damn Lucky
 
“Las Vegas is the perfect setting for this witty tale of misdirection and larger-than-life characters. Fans of J. A . Konrath’s Jack Daniels series will love this.”
—Library Journal, starred review on Lucky Stiff

“Coonts covers Sin City territory with a dash of CSI and Janet Evanovich in her second glitzy, lighthearted novel.”
—Publishers Weekly on Lucky Stiff

“Deliciously raunchy, with humorous takes on sexual proclivities, Vegas glitz and love, though Agatha Christie is probably spinning in her grave.”
—Kirkus Reviews on Wanna Get Lucky?

“This is chick-lit gone wild and sexy, lightly wrapped in mystery and tied up with a brilliantly flashing neon bow.... Wanna Get Lucky? hits the proverbial jackpot.”
—Booklist

“Funny, fast-paced, exuberant and brilliantly realized.”
—Susan Wiggs, New York Times bestselling author, on Wanna Get Lucky?

So Damn Lucky by Deborah Coonts is the third installment in the Lucky O'Toole series. I have read and reviewed both Wanna Get Lucky? and Lucky Stiff, and I've been having a fun time with these characters. I love the Vegas setting and all the background information on the city, and I also love reading a good mystery. In this book, Lucky is dealing with a group of magicians that may be intent on murder, her mother drops a bombshell, and her live-in lover is off touring the world with a gorgeous pop star. Lucky is trying to hold down the fort at The Babylon and keep a handle on her personal life. The interest of two other men isn't helping matters either - former co-worker Paxton Dane is still waiting for his chance, and now the French chef is also trying to wine and dine Lucky. Always the one to fix the problems, Lucky wonders if she will be able to fix her own...

I enjoyed this Lucky book, but I don't think it was my favorite of the three. That still belongs to Lucky Stiff, but I did like the story. The books are all thick but fast-paced and outrageous. I love a good chick lit mystery novel, and that would be how I classify these books from Coonts. I was a little disappointed to see who Lucky ended up with at the end of the novel. No spoilers, but after reading the previous two books about her, I really didn't see coming who she had chosen. The supporting cast are all back and being their usual selves, and I think they really add a lot of depth to the plot. I hope there is a fourth Lucky book so I can see her end up with the man who I think she belongs with! I definitely recommend this series.

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

This is a entertaining book. I really like the personality of Lucky. I found Deborah's first 2 Lucky books in my wife's borrowed Kindle. I was bored and started reading them because being from Vegas and Deborah introducing herself to my wife in the store and giving her a signed copy of the first one I decided to give her a try. I really like her style of writing. I feel I can picture it as if I was watching a movie. I reccomend all the Lucky O'Toole books.

Format: Hardcover
The opening line of Deborah Coonts' new book, the third in the Lucky O'Toole series [following "Wanna Get Lucky?" and "Lucky Stiff,] is eye-catching, to wit: "Some things in life are best savored alone - - sex is not one of them." And that sets the tone of the novel, bringing back the six foot tall Head of Customer Relations at a Las Vegas Strip hotel, i.e., the chief problem solver, hired by Albert Rothstein, owner of several of the biggest hotels in the town, usually just referred to as The Big Boss. As the book opens, it is October 24th, and things are gearing up for one of the biggest events of the year in Vegas: the Houdini Séance, held on Halloween, the anniversary of the great magician's death, attended by most of the tourists who have invaded the town, as well as many prominent magicians

All manner of quirky characters are introduced, probably none more deserving of that description than Lucky's mother, Mona, owner of Mona's Place, "the self-styled `Best Whorehouse in Nevada.'" The family dynamics are unusual, to say the least, but never less than interesting. Her friends include Federika "Flash" Gordon, "Las Vegas' most tenacious investigative reporter," and young LVPD detective Romeo [his name, not a soubriquet]. Much of the early part of the book deals with Lucky's problem dealing with the fact that her recent love, Vegas' reigning female impersonator, now a budding rock star, has gone off to Europe to follow his dream, leaving her with "hormonally driven leaps of lust" sparked, literally, by the touch of any one of several male acquaintances and colleagues.

Deborah Coonts's book is hysterically funny, strange, light-hearted and a mystery in so many ways! Deborah is a nut-case, she's so funny! I had a great adventure reading "Lucky." Here's the thing about Coonts; she's a wonderful mix of a good writer, a satirist and a student of people. She's also a comedian.

"So Damn Lucky" is the best trip you'll ever take to Las Vegas! If you've never been there, you only have to pick up this book to experience it. I laughed myself off the chair in the first chapter visualizing the exact characters she portrays that I'd seen there myself! This is a side-buster of a book, and a great mystery, too. Viva Las Vegas, absolutely captured and delivered in the hands of "Lucky" and Deborah Coonts...Elvis is definitely still alive there, so are aliens and missing persons!

If you're looking for a book to make you laugh and read like a bandit, and that will keep you wide-eyed with the joy of finding out about crazies and cons, this is the one for you. I found it a refreshing oasis from the books I've been reading lately. It's not always good to have a steady stream of the serious and fantasy world...once in a while it's so nice to have a sorbet between courses. "So Damn Lucky" is the raspberry sorbet of a book that will have your literary palate tingling!!

You just have to read this book. Take a trip to Las Vegas...

More About the Author

My mother tells me I was born a long time ago, but I'm not so sure--my mother can't be trusted. I do know that I was raised in Texas on barbeque, Mexican food and beer. I currently live in Las Vegas where family and friends tell me I can't get into too much trouble. Silly people. I have owned my own business, been a tax lawyer and a flight instructor, and have survived a teenager. And now, I make stuff up for a living.

Each day I sit in the front window at my favorite Panera and play with my imaginary friends. My SO is a psychologist and he tells me that many of his colleagues would consider me an annuity. I can live with that. Thankfully, he can too.

I write a mystery series set in Las Vegas--funny, sexy and romantic. I've been told they are comedic thrillers--sounds like an oxymoron to me, but you get the drift. The first in the series, WANNA GET LUCKY?, came out May 2010. The second, LUCKY STIFF, will be available February 15th, 2011. With the third, SO DAMN LUCKY, to follow.
