    1. Whoa. I filled out the review space on the last first-read book I won a while back, and right away on the same day, I win my next one. I think filling that empty review space is KEY.I'm not sure what this book is, now that I read its description. I went on an entering frenzy earlier and probably wasn't choosy enough.-------Mistake. Please take this book back and recharge my first-read status. I wasn't the right reader for this book that the author must've worked very hard on. It takes great dete [...]

    2. Interested in more of my reviews? Visit my blog!Lucky O’Toole is back in book 2 to handle more problems as the head of Customer Relations at the Babylon in Las Vegas. The action starts from page one with Lucky attempting to handle an overturned semi-truck that has not only blocked the entrance to the Babylon but has managed to dump its cargo: a load of bees. The following day, the body of Numbers Neidermeyer, an infamous bookie, is found floating in a shark tank and Lucky’s friend Jeremy Whi [...]

    3. Bummer!Maybe my expectations were too high because I had enjoyed the first book so much or maybe this book just fell short. Either way, I had a hard time pushing through to finish the book.What I loved about WANNA GET LUCKY? (the first book in the series):1. Lucky O'Toole was in charge of customer relations at a big LV hotel, and she had great adventures solving customer problems.2. Lucky wasn't involved in an annoying love-triangle. She actually picked a guy.3. Lucky's boyfriend was a cross-dr [...]

    4. Lucky O’Toole is back. Who knew that all it took was a truck load of honeybees to shut down Vegas. A truck driver lost control of his truck and yep you guessed it…tons of honey bees come flying out. Remember this is Vegas, so when the police receive the phone call about the accident, they do not bat an eye lash and dispatch someone to come clean up the mess. Because this is Vegas, it isn’t complete without a good murder. When Mrs. Neidermeyer is found as shark food, Lucky is on the case. L [...]

    5. You always wonder if the 2nd book in a series can hold up to close inspection. Well I have to say out loud. Lucky Stiff is funnier and more entertaining then the first. I'm looking forward to some fall down to the floor laughing entertainment in book 3.

    6. I couldn’t actually finish this book. Whilst the first in the Lucky O’Toole series was mildly entertaining, and the backdrop of LV is always pleasant, this was tedious and wildly unbelievable. Where do I start? Lucky’s so busy she works 18-hour days yet she doesn’t seem to do anything other than investigate serious crimes and però on all things male including her friend/PAs partner. And the fact that she’s helping not only a PI but Detective ‘Romeo’ investigate a homicide, vein cu [...]

    7. Series does have a vague Stephanie Plum feel to it, but I found it really hard to connect with the characters most of the time. That in turn made it really hard to over look the 'isn't it SO convenient that 'that' happened just so that 'that' can happen a bit later!' I thought about continuing the series, because there is the potential of it being better than it is, but quite frankly, it's about $3-4 too much for each book for what this authors offering. I'd be fine paying $1.99, probably $2.99. [...]

    8. Murder and extra sappy/horny. Teddie is in the beginning of becoming a music superstar and Lucky is already morning the eventual break up as soon as he sets foot on the plane and only stops to try to clear a friend's name of murder, save a virgin from her nutty mother, and to have a bit of sex then immediately goes back to moping and lusting after every guy she sees. I was hoping for humor, but there were maybe 20 good lines in the entire book. If you like romance great, if you want Vegas entert [...]

    9. Taking place in Las Vegas this murder mystery takes you into the world of running a casino from the customer relations end. It starts with a tractor trailer full of bee tipping over, then to a body in pieces found in the shark tank. It continues with love, surprises and twists and confirming that you can't always believe what you hear/read. It is a light read, a step above a cozy mystery and leaves you with wanting more.

    10. I love Lucky but I didn’t enjoy this one quite as much as the first. My favorite parts are when she is dealing with crazy guests in the hotel, and in this one she spent more time trying to solve a murder. I was also kind of disappointed that her boyfriend is no longer doing his female impersonator act. I liked that about him. I’ll definitely read more Lucky, though.

    11. it was an okay story overall. I was tired of reading "the beautiful Jeremy." And the insecurity over one day was extreme was the later jealous outburst and retaliation scene. I have officially given up on the. characters and the series as a whole. Oh well.

    12. Another fun, fast read about Lucky O'Toole. Although it stated to get repetitive by the end, it moved along at a good pace and had enough going on to keep me interested until the very end. Can't wait to read the next one!

    19. Quick enjoyable read. Liked the characters and plot, but there was almost too much going on in this book to keep track of everything.

    20. I hate beesWhy do I hate bees, because I am allergic to their stings and so is someone in the story. Excellent read and beautiful story telling from the author.

    21. I was very eager to dive into this second installment of this amazing series. The first book, Wanna Get Lucky?, introduced me to so many wonderful characters that I just couldn't wait find out what was going to happen with them next. This is a good time to point out that, as this is a sequel, there may be some unintentional spoilers in this review. So if you haven't read the first book in the series yet, you may want to do that first. Ok, enough with the disclaimers, on to the review!We're reint [...]

    22. I reviewed the first novel in this series, Wanna Get Lucky?, four days ago. I reported that I really liked the book. While this holds true as I continue the series with Lucky Stiff, I did find that I enjoyed the first book a little more than I did the second.In the beginning of Lucky Stiff, Lucky has found herself in another sticky situation. A truck full of honeybees heading to an entomologist conference have spilled out in front of her casino. (Side note: Think this is too over the top? It's h [...]

    23. This review was originally posted on my blog, Ramblings of a Daydreamer. You can find it, and many more reviews at the blog.Just like the first book in the Lucky O’Toole series, Wanna Get Lucky?, Lucky Stiff is a highly entertaining, action-packed read.There’s no wasting time here - we get thrown right into the middle of the action from the very first page. We’re reintroduced to Lucky as she’s left to deal with a ton of honeybees on the loose on the Vegas Strip. As if that isn’t enough [...]

    24. I really hate that it took me so long to read this book. I got it at the end of November, sent free from the Publicity Manager, and I tried several times to read it before Christmas, but I was just too busy. I gave up trying to read past page 50 until the new year. But, because I had gotten a Kindle from my brother for Christmas (Thank you Joshie! :) I had several other books I was reading. I finally picked this up on the 19 to start reading it again and I had no clue what was going on, so I jus [...]

    28. Originally Reviewed at Novel EscapesLucky Stiff is a who-done-it complete with 4-inch-heels and a girl who complains about wearing them and kicks them off as soon as possible. What’s not to love? The sequel to Wanna Get Lucky, this novel picks up where we left off with Lucky O’Toole. Everything is running smoothly in Lucky’s life until another murder takes place with ties to a friend and the hotel she’s head of customer relations for. We are treated to more outrageous antics, politics, s [...]

To complicate matters, the truck was carrying a load of bees for the upcoming entomologist convention. A million honeybees have escaped and are now buzzing a [...]

    30. When listening to the audio version, you have to separate the storyline from the narrator. Bless Renee Raudman’s heart for attempting all the different accents, but the poor girl cannot keep them straight. Her Australian accents falls into to Midwest cowboy and what I think is a Hispanic cab driver slowly turns into a something that sounds more Asian. It got to the point that every time an accent would come up I would be more in tuned with how it would be butchered then with the actual words t [...]
