WANNA GET LUCKY – Deborah Coonts

Excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed this bawdy, funny, tale of a Las Vegas hotel and casino’s six foot trouble-shooting customer relations gal.

Wanna get LuckyShe answers to The Big Boss, whom she is in awe of. A girl falls out of the Hotel’s VIP helicopter to her death. It knocks Lucky’s world sideways when she discovers that The Big Boss was sitting beside her when she fell. Did she fall, or was she tossed out? The pilot and the other passenger go missing. Lucky takes it on herself to fend off the press, the police and the perps as she juggles the drugged customers, the various weird conventions of wife-swappers and Adult film industry among others, all the while getting to the bottom of the mystery.

Her mother, whom Lucky loves and is in awe of, who runs a high-class brothel in a town nearby, provides a clue or two and lots of advice… There are loads of interesting characters, including Vegas’ famous female impersonator, and the hunk on the security team; both of whom stir Lucky’s libido.

While tongue in cheek and very funny, I did not find it slap-stick. It was non-stop action by way of happenings and trouble for the resourceful Lucky to deal with, rather than violence, per se.

Lucky O’Toole has a new fan. Bravo, Deborah Coonts. An Instafreebie selection – thank you.
