"Evanovich...with a dash of CSI." - Publishers Weekly
Everyone Has a Hidden Talent
For Lucky O'Toole it's murder...solving it.
Surviving in Sin City takes cunning, a pair of five-inch heel, and a wiseass attitude. Lucky has mastered them all and has a pair of legs she uses to kick butt and turn heads.
As the Chief Problem Solver for the Babylon, Las Vegas's most over-the-top destination, mischief is in her job description.
She's good at her job.
She's less good at life. But who has time for a life when there's a killer on the lose?
Someone fed Numbers Neidermeyer to the tiger shark in the tank at Mandalay Bay resort.
Lucky's friend, the Beautiful Jeremy Whitlock, is suspect Numero Uno.
Miss P, Jeremy's squeeze and Lucky's partner in crime, is in a tailspin.
A tractor-trailer full of honeybees jackknifes on the Strip in front of the Babylon, spilling its load.
The district attorney--apparently the odd man out in a threesome--is hiding in the buff in a laundry room.
And Lucky's mother decides to auction a young woman's virginity.
Can Lucky get Jeremy out of the hot seat, handle the new hot French chef and her mother...and restore order in her life?

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.

My mother tells me I was born a very long time ago, but I'm not so sure—my mother can't be trusted. These things I do know: I was raised in Texas on barbeque, Mexican food and beer. I currently reside in Las Vegas, where my friends assure me I cannot get into too much trouble. Silly people. I am the author of WANNA GET LUCKY? (A NY Times Notable Crime Novel for 2010 and double RITA™ Finalist), LUCKY STIFF, SO DAMN LUCKY (a national bestseller), LUCKY BASTARD and four digital novellas, LUCKY IN LOVE, LUCKY BANG and LUCKY NOW AND THEN, Parts One and Two. The fifth novel in the series, LUCKY CATCH, is coming in July. I can usually be found at the bar, but also at www.deborahcoonts.com.Review:
Praise for Wanna Get Lucky:
“Deliciously raunchy, with humorous takes on sexual proclivities, Vegas glitz and love, though Agatha Christie is probably spinning in her grave.”--Kirkus Reviews
“Complete with designer duds, porn conventions, partner-swapping parties, and clever repartee, this is chick-lit gone wild and sexy, lightly wrapped in mystery and tied up with a brilliantly flashing neon bow. As the first in a series, Wanna Get Lucky? hits the proverbial jackpot.” --Booklist
“Wanna Get Lucky? is a winner on every level. Deborah Coonts has crafted a first-class murder mystery coupled with a touching and unexpected love story. Against a flawlessly-rendered Las Vegas backdrop, Lucky’s story is funny, fast-paced, exuberant and brilliantly realized.”--Susan Wiggs, New York Times bestselling author
“Get ready to win big--with a novel that will keep you glued to the pages all the way to the end. Wanna Get Lucky? is as entertaining as the city in which it's set.”
--Brenda Novak, New York Times bestselling author of Trust me, Stop Me, and Watch Me
