EVEN A BLIND DOG FINDS A BONE

LUCKY CATCH

For Lucky O'Toole, she finds killers.

As the Chief Problem Solver for the Babylon, Las Vegas's most over-the-top destination, murder is a bit outside of her normal.

But, armed with a wicked wit and an even more wicked right-cross, Lucky takes it all in stride.

But tonight taxes even Lucky's formidable skills.

Lucky's former lover, Teddie, shows up, hat in hand.

A gaggle of egomaniacal chefs appear for a televised cook-off.

And Lucky's current lover, Jean-Charles stops answering his phone.

Since trouble comes in threes, Lucky is sure this is the extent of tonight's trouble.

As usual, she's a tad optimistic.

A prized Alba truffle disappears from Jean-Charles's restaurant.

A young chef is murdered in Jean-Charles's food truck.

Jean-Charles still isn't answering his phone.

And when Lucky's path crosses the killer's will her goose be cooked?

You want to know... I know you do.

AN INTERVIEW WITH DEBORAH COONTS

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 to make people laugh, hopefully out loud. When Lucky started talking to me, she had a strong dose of sass in her.

YOUR LUCKY BOOKS ARE 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. So it became a female detective romantic mystery series. A bit of a mash up, but it works.
