Book Description

Lucky O’Toole—Head of Customer Relations at The Babylon, premier mega-resort on the Vegas Strip—thinks it’s just another night in Las Vegas. But then a magician pulls a disappearing act, right under Lucky’s nose. Is it a stunt? Or something worse?

While Lucky chases leads, someone is trying to put her off the scent. As if this wasn’t enough to ruin her day, Lucky’s relationship with The Big Boss is coming to a head—past hurts can no longer be denied. Of course, she is already on shaky emotional ground: Teddie, her live-in, has been touring with a young and lovely pop star. Paxton Dane, former coworker and would-be suitor, is still circling, hoping to find a chink in the armor of Lucky’s resolve. And then, there’s this French chef, who is proving to be too hot to handle….

Las Vegas expert Deborah Coonts thrills again with this third installment in her dazzling series focused on casino “fixer” Lucky O’Toole.

My Review
So Damn Lucky is the third installment in the Lucky O'Toole series written by Deborah Coonts.  It is a highly entertaining and well written series.  The author who lives in Las Vegas knows the city well and once again has portrayed it perfectly.  This outing centers around magicians, science fiction and the lore of Area 51.  As always, Lucky's world is filled with interesting characters.

This novel is filled with life changes for our main character Lucky and all are very promising.  The little girl who grew up without a father now has a complete family.  And new responsibilities to go along with these changes.  And her love life goes up and down and finishes with new promises of happiness. Although I am routing for a Lucky-Dane partnership...why is she blind to what is right in front of her!?!

With each book in the series, the characters become more defined and closer to your heart.  This is a fun series that lets you feel like you are spending the weekend in Vegas but without the hangover and bursting waistline!  I highly recommend this entire series and I loved the latest, So Damn Lucky!
