“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

#1 New York Times bestselling author of Just Breathe “Deborah Coonts hits it out of the park with her debut novel, Wanna Get Lucky? Peppered with delightfully witty characters and only-in-Vegas hijinks, it`s definitely on my This Year`s Best Read list.” --Stephen J. Cannell
New York Times bestselling author of the Shane Scully novels “Paintsa dead-on portrait of Las Vegas that is somehow dark, outrageous, and hilarious at the same time. Lucky O`Toole is wise, witty, and
brimming with cheery cynicism. Wanna Get Lucky? goes down faster than an ice-cold Bombay martini-very dry, of course, and with a twist.” --Douglas Preston, New York Times bestselling author of Blasphemy
Top Customer Reviews
I loved Lucky O'Toole's character. She is full of brawn, brains and had a great sense of humour. She's far from perfect though and I loved seeing her character grow through the story. And it wasn't just her character I enjoyed. From Lucky's female impersonator love interest, Teddy, to her madam mother, each character is unique and unconventional, but I didn't expect anything less with the Vegas setting.
This story moves along rapidly and the intrigue of the murder mystery as well as Lucky's personal life and history kept me flipping pages. Wanna Get Lucky has all the glitz, glamour and gambling of Las Vegas, along with all the oddities and unconventional scenarios one would expect. They are all worked into the novel impeccably and nothing seemed out of place or unusual, even though Lucky does run into some highly unusual situations in her position as head of customer relations for the megacasino she works at.
I can't wait to sink my teeth into the sequel, Lucky Stiff (Lucky O'Toole) and see what else Deborah Coonts has in store for us!
