Year Published: 2020
Genre: Crime, Mystery
Home: A refuge. An escape. Where the heart is.
After a high-body count trip through Europe, Lucky O’Toole, the Chief Problem Solver for the Babylon, Las Vegas’s most over the top Strip casino, is home and searching for peace, quiet and a quick fix for a broken heart.
She should know better.
Her father is failing in his fight to regain his health after taking a bullet to the chest.
Her mother, Mona, is increasingly desperate to be “useful” which usually results in her being anything but.
Her love life is in shambles.
The DEA is after her, but not giving a hint as to why.
The NBA is in town for their All-Star break extravaganza highlighting the new rookies.
Somebody got cute and put a Bugatti on top of her hotel.
And a dead guy turns up in delivery bay seven with his skull bashed in.
Not exactly the soft reentry Lucky had hoped for. But she can handle it.
Until her father, after checking himself out of the hospital, summons Lucky for a “family” meeting. A secret from his past puts the future of the Babylon and the family in jeopardy.
And he expects Lucky to fix it.
Worse, a financier who played cat-and-mouse with Lucky around the globe, striving to leave her holding the bag, could hold the key to her saving it all.
Can she trust him?
Does she have a choice?
About the Author:
Deborah Coonts swears she was switched at birth. Coming from a family of homebodies, Deborah is the odd woman out, happiest with a passport, a high-limit credit card, her computer, and changing scenery outside her window. Goaded by an insatiable curiosity, she flies airplanes, rides motorcycles, travels the world, and pretends to be more of a badass than she probably is. Deborah is the author of the Lucky O'Toole Vegas Adventure series, a romantic mystery romp through Sin City. Wanna Get Lucky?, the first in the series, was a New York Times Notable Crime Novel and a double RITA™ Award Finalist. She has also penned a few standalone novels; After Me, a medical thriller, Deep Water, a romantic suspense, and Crushed, a contemporary romance set in Napa. Although rarely there, Deborah calls Houston home.

My Take on the Book:
Of the books I’ve read in this series, I’ve enjoyed Lucky as a character, and though I’m sad that this series is ending, I also understand that it needs to come to an end. This was an enjoyable read for me and I’m glad that Lucky came to a happy medium in her life. I gave this book a four star rating and got an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I’ve enjoyed this author’s books so far, and am looking forward to what books come out in the future.
