With Christmas a few days away, Lucky O’Toole, Vice President of Customer Relations for the Babylon, Las Vegas’s premier Strip casino resort, is in a festive mood. The upcoming wedding of her assistant to the Beautiful Jeremy Whitlock and her own engagement to her delish French Chef, Jean-Charles Bouclet have Lucky in full holiday cheer.
And even bigger celebrations are afoot. The national media is focused on the grand opening of Jean-Charles’s restaurant atop Lucky’s very own slice-of-heaven hotel. The opening gets a boost when Holt Box, a retired country-western singing legend lends a hand in the kitchen, adding mega-watt celebrity buzz.
Lucky’s life is humming.
The only sour note is her former lover, Teddie.
Teddie claims Lucky’s father, the Big Boss, has put an end to his return to the Las Vegas stage by handing that stage to Holt Box. Box is returning from retirement, a comeback of epic magnitude that will give the Babylon–and Lucky’s career–an incredible boost.
Taken by surprise, Lucky takes the high road. Or rather, she does what she always does when life overwhelms…she ignores it.
Until she finds Teddie and her father, bloodied and angry, standing over the lifeless body of Holt Box, a dagger in Teddie’s fist.
The media sharks are circling. A Macau heavy-hitter in town, flying under the radar but making his presence felt. An old nemesis of Lucky’s is out of prison and salivating for revenge. Lucky’s mother is ramping up her political campaign while juggling her new twins, who still don’t have names. And Christmas is racing toward a crescendo.
Time is short as Lucky must discover whether Teddie is a killer.
And why she still cares.
“If you haven’t read the Lucky O’Toole series, start now!” – Allison Brennan, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Lucy Kincaid series
“The Lucky O’Toole series just keeps getting better. In Lucky Break, our heroine deals with the opening of her new Las Vegas hotel, the death of a mega-star country singer, one former lover out to get her and another accused of murder, the shooting of her father and of course, Mona, her mother. Weddings, engagements, and Lucky’s trademark humor add the perfect touch of spice to this wonderful mystery. Highly recommended for fans of romantic, light-hearted mysteries.” – Stephen Campbell, author of Gone Tomorrow
