Wanna Get Lucky? by Deborah Coonts

I listened to the unabridged Audible version of Wanna Get Lucky? by Deborah Coonts and narrated by Renée Raudman. Listening time for Wanna Get Lucky? by Deborah Coonts is 11 hours, 19 minutes.

Wanna Get Lucky? by Deborah Coonts is the first novel in the Lucky O'Toole series. Lucky O'Toole is a woman, who lives in Sin City, and works at a casino where she pretty much handles any crisis large or small... And she's great at her job!! Lucky is fun, sassy, snarky, confident, and and can handle every situation relating to the business of running a casino. She also knows where to find the skeletons and all the ins and outs of living and working in Las Vegas as only a true veteran can. 

I enjoyed listening to Wanna Get Lucky? by Deborah Coonts very much. I love the character of Lucky O'Toole... As if you probably couldn't tell by now! The characters and scenarios that Lucky comes across during her typical day are wildly entertaining in this mystery novel and kept me engaged throughout this novel. 

I also liked that Lucky O'Toole is also flawed... She has an interesting mother, but I won't give away the details about it here and now. 

Lucky's love life and social life outside of work aren't much to talk about either as she is a workoholic, but that changes in the novel with a small side story of love and romance for Lucky... I enjoyed reading about Lucky's budding romance throughout the novel. The other supporting characters were fun too. 

Additionally, I enjoyed reading how Lucky solved the murder mystery too. Overall, I'd highly recommend reading Wanna Get Lucky? by Deborah Coonts.

The following is the plot summary for Wanna Get Lucky? by Deborah Coonts from Amazon:
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 wise ass 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?
A woman falls from a tour helicopter to the horror of the 8:30 Pirate show crowd.Was it suicide? An accident? Could she have been pushed? 
Lucky's day began with the invasion of the Adult Video Awards and Trade show convention. It got more hectic when the spouse-swapping annual event checked in. 
And if adding a body to the mix wasn't enough, Lucky's got a new suitor. Her best friend, Teddie, a female impersonator who is pressing to take their relationship to the next level. Can she really date a man who looks better in a dress? 
What happened to the woman over the pirate show? Will her sleuthing skills catch the killer and save her job?
I am giving Wanna Get Lucky? by Deborah Coonts a rating of 4 stars out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!!
