Murder Takes a Holiday

For Lucky O’Toole, living with murder is, well…murder.

As the Chief Problem Solver for the Babylon, Las Vegas’s most over-the-top destination, mischief is in her job description, but murder? Not so much…until recently…


Facing a murder indictment, Lucky’s first love, Teddie, has flown to Macau on the heels of the real killer.

A powerful figure in the Macanese underworld has Lucky’s father and his empire over a barrel.

Lucky’s own hotel is days away from opening.

And her engagement is very new.

So, there’s only one thing for Lucky to do…

Take a trip to Macau.

She has five days to catch a killer, save Teddie, and rescue her empire from financial ruin.

Piece of cake for someone with Lucky’s superpowers…


A light, funny, romantic mystery providing a Vegas escape appropriate for anyone looking for a good laugh. Get your copy today!


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.


“Lucky’s story is funny, fast-paced, exuberant and brilliantly realized.” - Susan Wiggs, #1 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.” - Brenda Novak, New York Times & USA Today bestselling author

"More fun than a winning streak in Vegas. Lucky O’Toole is a character with brains, beauty, and a wry sense of humor. Readers will want to meet her again—and soon." - Diane Mott Davidson, New York Times bestselling author

"Deborah Coonts...entrusts the sleuthing to a brainy beauty who sees the lighter side of human folly." - New York Times Book Review

"Las Vegas is the perfect setting for this witty tale of misdirection and larger-than-life characters. Fans of J. A. Konrath's Jack Daniels series will love this." - Library Journal, starred review

“A whirlwind of a kooky crime novel, and readers will enjoy every minute of it. Coonts provides the perfect solution for readers waiting for the next Stephanie Plum book.” - Booklist

Great series!!. Really enjoying the series. Just the right tone with smart dialogue, romance (not too explicit - thank you!), and action. Novella 4 helped me with at least one question mark - a character who popped in without an introduction.

Lucky the hard way. Didn’t think I would like @ first. But more into it couldn’t put it down. Always a twist & turn to keep U reading! Well done-Yogi

Love Lucky. So happy to read the latest in Lucky's chaotic life. This installment is as good (if not better) as we've come to expect. Love the whole series.

Lucky the Hard Way. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Lucky O'Toole and all the other characters in this series. Each book has gotten more intriguing and enjoyable but this one hit all the buttons and held me in its grip! Thanks for the wild ride; can't wait to do it all again with next one!

Lucky the hard way. The hard way was the part that I couldn't put it down. Loved loved, loved it. Keep them coming.

Lucky The Hard Way. Another great book in the Lucky series. Thanks
