    1. I must admit that I love Lucky O'Toole. She's one of those characters you want as a best friend. Her life is off the charts kooky and yet fun at the same time. She has amazing friends, co-workers and lovers (yes plural). In this installment, Vegas is hopping with a UFO convention, magicians, Area 51 rig-a-ma-role and murder. Lucky has her hands full especially when (view spoiler)[Teddie dumps her (hide spoiler)]. Then the fun really began with Lucky choosing her new man. I'm not sure I like her [...]

    3. Lucky O’Toole is the head of Customer Relations at the Babylon in Las Vegas. She has been invited to a farewell party in honor of the forty year run of the Calliope Burlesque Cabaret at the Athena Resort and Casino. It seems that the farewell party would not be a party without a big surprise. That is correct. Famed magician, Dimitri Fortunoff is performing as the grand finale. Dimitri will perform Harry Houdini’s famous Chinese Water Torture Cell trick. Something goes terribly wrong and Dimi [...]

    4. There aren't many books that have a main character who is a customer service manager in Vegas, let alone have a murder mystery. Throw in some magicians, UFO's, humor, and you have a decent book. Not earth shattering, but decent. I read this before the author's previous ones in the series, and just started the first, which I think I will like more.Nice blend of some basic character development, humor, but not quite good enough to rise above the decent, mundane work in the mystery genre.

    5. Great Series. Missing magicians, aliens, mob hits and misses, past transgressions, new dilemmas, all revolving around a broken heart and a potential new love. Oh did I mention the possibility of a surprise brother and an elusive bomb. Fun read.

    6. So Damn Lucky is the third entry in Deborah Coonts' Lucky O'Toole series about the beautiful young Las Vegas hotel executive who solves problems, some of them invariably including murder. It's also the third novel I've read in the series. Though I enjoyed all three, I doubt I'll be reading any more in the series. As I made my way through So Damn Lucky, I found myself getting tired of all the "delicious" men and their attractive backsides. (Yes, I also tire of books by male writers who only inc [...]

    7. I love this series! I listened to this in audio format - and loved the narrator too! The story line was entertaining as always and I continue to love the characters and I'm thrilled with where her love interest is going. About time! wink, wink! This author does an excellent job of describing scenes and pulling you into the story! I look forward to reading or listening to the next one!

    8. While I still enjoyed this book, I didn't like it quite as much as the previous ones. The storyline was a bit out there and there were so many characters (mainly the magicians/UFO people) that it was hard to keep track. Still a fun read though.

    9. Lucky has captivated me once again. I absolutely devour these books every time I get the chance to pick them up. I have fallen in love with the characters. It is always so much fun trying to solve the mystery with Lucky and her friends.

    10. I really like the main character, Lucky O'Toole, but the plot was way to confusing this time around. The list of characters (magicians) was to large and very underdeveloped so I couldn't keep anyone straight. The ending was just one big confusing round-up.

    11. I love her books. So many fascinating things going on in the background of Las Vegas.

    13. Lucky O'Toole is back for another adventure in So Damn Lucky by Deborah Coonts. There is never a dull day in her job as Head of Customer Relations at the Babylon hotel. A horde of magicians and UFO enthusiasts have descended on the hotel. Yes you read that right, UFOs!! I guess that picture on the cover should have given me a clue.When we met up with Lucky again she is on her way to a party where famed magician Dimitri Fortunoff is the star attraction. But Lucky is distracted. All she can think [...]

    14. Reviewed By~MarissaReview Copy Provided By~PublisherThere are several reasons why I like Deborah Coonts’ character Lucky O’Toole. First off, she has a demanding yet rewarding job at a high profile, high-class hotel/resort in Las Vegas. She also gets to wear designer clothes without worrying about how expensive they are, and she can wear high-heels and not trip or stumble in them (and her feet don’t get sore after five minutes like mine do!). Her tall, handsome, talented boyfriend looks goo [...]

    15. This book was sent to me via FSB Media for a honest and fair review. Lucky starts out having relationship issues with Teddy who is performing around the world. Lucky wonders where their relationship is headed and where it went wrong. When he comes back to see her she can tell something is wrong and in the end the two part ways. Teddy leaves her his sax, with no explanation why. And when he is back on the road he keeps calling her, wanting the friendship they once had.A Magician disappears perfor [...]

    16. This review was originally posted on my blog, Ramblings of a Daydreamer. You can find it, and many more reviews at the blog.3.5 stars Lucky is back with another adventure - or rather, misadventure. I loved the premise of this one - magicians and aliens. It was completely different from anything I’ve ever read, and it certainly kept me guessing. It was interesting and mysterious, and a lot of fun.Lucky continues to grow on me. She’s tough and no-nonsense and independent. I like that other ‘ [...]

    17. I think I liked this book solely because I loved the previous books in the series. There were two main plotlines. The Lucky and Teddie relationship and the convoluted twisty magician-alien-Area 51 thing. I am still confused on who was who when it came to the magicians and repeatedly my eyes glazed over when I was trying to remember their exact place in the story.Zewicki, Danilov, Carl, Jenkins, Griffin, Mortimer, Marik and Fortunoff. Just to name a few. Which do not include the ongoing character [...]

    18. The opening line of Deborah Coonts’ new book, the third in the Lucky O’Toole series [following “Wanna Get Lucky?” and “Lucky Stiff,”] is eye-catching, to wit: “Some things in life are best savored alone - - sex is not one of them.” And that sets the tone of the novel, bringing back the six foot tall Head of Customer Relations at a Las Vegas Strip hotel, i.e the chief problem solver, hired by Albert Rothstein, owner of several of the biggest hotels in the town, usually just referr [...]

    19. SPOILER ALERT:Alright Lucky! I enjoyed this book a lot more than the last. I was disappointed though, that Lucky is still having to solve murders. WTH is up with that? Why can't she just be the Customer Relations person for the hotel and nothing else? Coonts needs to just go ahead and declare Lucky a P.I. alongside The Beautiful Jeremy Whitlock and get it over with. This time, instead of a swarm of bees, Lucky is dealing with a UFO convention and a bunch of magicians that are already getting on [...]

    20. For Lucky O’Toole, head of customer relations for Babylon, a mega-casino in Las Vegas, things could be going better. A magician she’s booked for an act in the casino apparently dies during his act, and the body disappears. Her boyfriend, Teddie, is on tour with a rock star, and becoming increasingly distant. She’s having issues with the Big Boss, owner of the Babylon, who also happens to be her dad. And, all of this is before lunch.In Deborah Coonts’ So Damn Lucky, the sometimes hapless, [...]

    21. Love this series. Lucky is the bastard child of a bordello owner, Mona, and a Vegas "mover and shaker" casino owner Albert Rothstein (the Big Boss). She had no idea who her father was until the year before this book, when he had heart problems and faced death. That's when he finally told her the truth, although she had been working for him since she was 15. She had worked herself up the ladder, from cabana girl to the Head of Customer Relations at the Babylon, and she is very good at both her jo [...]

    22. So Damn Lucky starts on a downer Teddie is overseas chasing his dreams and has left Lucky along and she is beginning to doubt their relationship. There have been so many changes in Lucky’s life since the first book in this series and for the first time it appears that things are looking pretty down for her. There are still sexual tension between Lucky and two men who work in the hotel, Dane and the chef. Lucky is also unsure how long she will be able to keep the big secret about being the Big [...]

    23. Lucky O'Toole is the Head of Customer Relations at the Babylon Casino and Resort. Bad enough that her boyfriend Teddy is off playing rock star by seeking his dreams, but one of the acts at the casino goes south fast. A magician, hoping to replicate one of Houdini's famous acts, finds himself trapped in a box of water and dies. When Lucky goes to the hospital to hear how he died, making sure there is no funny business, she finds out that the magician never showed up. No ambulance claims to have b [...]

    24. I just re-read this one and bumped my original rating of 4 stars down to 2. I have been debating between 2 and 3 stars but the aggravating parts were so aggravating that I bumped it down to 2. If nothing else, I refuse to give positive reinforcement to negative behaviours.The storyline of this book was OK. However, it drove me crazy that Lucky spent so much of the book mooning about Teddie. The few times that she was not mooning about him, she was mooning about Dane and Jean-Charles, and really [...]

    25. So Damn Lucky by Deborah Coonts is the third installment in the Lucky O’Toole series. I have read and reviewed both Wanna Get Lucky? and Lucky Stiff, and I’ve been having a fun time with these characters. I love the Vegas setting and all the background information on the city, and I also love reading a good mystery. In this book, Lucky is dealing with a group of magicians that may be intent on murder, her mother drops a bombshell, and her live-in lover is off touring the world with a gorgeou [...]

    26. I dove right into this book after finishing Lucky Stiff, since the ending left us with sort of a shock regarding Lucky's mother. The story line in So Damn Lucky revolves around the disappearance of a magician. That in and of itself wouldn't be too strange, especially in a city like Las Vegas, but the circumstances surrounding the disappearance become more and more peculiar and suspicious. While trying to help solve the case, Lucky also has to deal with her confusing and unstable love life. Once [...]

    27. This is the third in the Lucky O’Toole mystery series (WANNA GET LUCKY and LUCKY STIFF), featuring the hotel casino customer service representative extraordinaire. Lucky can handle even the thorniest issues that Las Vegas can throw at her--bondage balls, adult movie conventions, complicated X-rated situations in hotel rooms—with aplomb and finesse. But Lucky’s personal life poses bigger challenges, namely a mother who owns a bordello in Pahrump and a father who is theOK, I'm not telling as [...]
