Part of our reasoning to do this is to bring more attention to the Indie authors we love to read. With so many books out there now it's hard to figure out what is a good, well-written book...or not. Keep in mind, these are our opinions, things we like to read. The Nookettes of the Virtual writing colony of Nara's Nook have come up with this blog hop to share our favorites.
Today's offering is WANNA GET LUCKY? by Deborah Coonts. Here's the blurb:
A young woman plunges from a Las Vegas sightseeing helicopter, landing in the Pirate Lagoon in front of the Treasure Island Hotel in the middle of the 8:30 Pirate Show. Almost everyone writes her off as another Vegas victim. But, Lucky O'Toole, head of customer relations at the Babylon mega casino, smells a rat, though she's got a lot on her plate: the adult film industry's annual awards banquet, a spouse-swapping convention, sex-toy purveyors preying on the pocket-protector crowd attending ElectroniCon... Still Lucky can't resist turning over a few stones.
When a former flame is one of the snakes she uncovers, Lucky is certain the woman's death was no Sin City suicide. To top it all off, Lucky's best friend, Teddie--Las Vegas's finest female impersonator--presses to take their relationship to the next level. Leave it to Lucky to attract a man who looks better in a dress than she does.
Lucky must manage the Babylon's outrageous festivities, solve the crime, and struggle to keep her life and libido from spinning out of control.
First I met this author, and Deborah made me laugh so hard, I had to buy her book back when it was hard cover only (and I never buy hard covers). And then I laughed my way through the entire tale. Not only is this a great murder mystery, but it's laugh-out-loud funny, smart snarky dialog, and a cast of characters I've actually seen when I lived in Las Vegas. Deborah brings it all together, and even better, Lucky has a whole slew of tales to read after this one. I highly recommend the whole series.
Right now, this tale is free everywhere except All Romance.
