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?

About the Author

DEBORAH COONTS has built her own business, practiced law, flown airplanes, written a humor column for a national magazine, and survived a teenager. So Damn Lucky is her third novel.


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.

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.

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

There are several reasons why I like Deborah Coonts’ character Lucky O’Toole. First off, she has a demanding yet rewarding job at a high profile, high-class hotel/resort in Las Vegas. She also gets to wear designer clothes without worrying about how expensive they are, and she can wear high-heels and not trip or stumble in them (and her feet don’t get sore after five minutes like mine do!). Her tall, handsome, talented boyfriend looks good in both jeans and evening gowns. Her mother is an out-spoken ex-prostitute-now-madam. Her father is also her boss. Her assistant can anticipate her needs, even before Lucky knows what those are. Lastly (and probably the best of all), she gets to drive high-performance sports cars without paying for them. Yes, Lucky seems to have it all. Only in this book, she starts losing some of it.

It’s a fun ride whenever Lucky gets in the Ferrari and this time is no different - and another great adventure as I attempted to solve the mystery right along with her. This third installment in the series has Lucky dealing with magicians, UFOs, an ex-lover, a new lover, an old woman who wants to marry her dog, and an over-sexed couple from Muskogee, not to mention the usual chaotic family and friends. I’m hoping that some of these new characters make future appearances in Lucky books down the line.

It seems to me that the third book in a character series is typically where an author “jumps the shark” and tries to make the character more interesting by having them do outlandish and ridiculous things. Conversely, the character starts to die a slow and painful death, becoming less and less interesting with each book.

Lucky O'Toole is the Head of Customer Relations at the Babylon Casino and Resort. Bad enough that her boyfriend Teddy is off playing rock star by seeking his dreams, but one of the acts at the casino goes south fast. A magician, hoping to replicate one of Houdini's famous acts, finds himself trapped in a box of water and dies. When Lucky goes to the hospital to hear how he died, making sure there is no funny business, she finds out that the magician never showed up. No ambulance claims to have been there, and now a magician is missing.

Lucky's missing Ted badly and she feels like he is picking his dream over her, which puts her in a bad mood. Her mom is newly pregnant and her dad, The Big Boss, wants to tell the world that Lucky is his daughter, much to her chagrin. Then the new chef they hired for the restaurant in the Athena, a casino recently purchased, argues constantly with Lucky about renovations. It doesn't help that the handsome Paxton Dane is still circling her, giving Lucky ideas about infidelity to Ted.

When Lucky's apartment is broken into, she knows she must be getting close to figuring out where the magician has disappeared to. Ted comes home for a visit, but Lucky's emotions are all over the place and she ends up taking her frustrations out on her father. When there is an attempt on her life, she knows she needs to make some life-changing and soul searching decisions, and fast.

SO DAMN LUCKY is the third installment in the LUCKY O'TOOLE series, following WANNA GET LUCKY? and LUCKY STIFF. If there's trouble to be found, it usually winds up on Lucky's doorstep and she meets it head on every time. With twists and turns of not only the mystery, but the love lives of herself and those closest to her, SO DAMN LUCKY is a rip-roaring good time. Magical and thoroughly entertaining, I love this series!
