A young woman plunges from a Las Vegas sightseeing helicopter, landing in the Pirate's 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 smells a rat. She's head of Customer Relations at The Babylon, the newest, most opulent mega-casino and resort on the Strip, so 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's certain she's no longer dealing with an anonymous Sin City suicide. To top it all off, Lucky's best friend Teddie--Las Vegas' 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 onslaught of outrageous festivities, solve a murder, and struggle to keep her life and libido from spinning out of control... not to mention keep her balance in six inch heels.

A romance novel with a slight sprinkling of intrigue. I enjoyed the setting, though the parade of sex and sexuality in its various forms began to get tiring. I liked Lucky's spunk... for the most part. Her fast quips began as cute but then the constant wisecracking started to wear out its welcome as the story moved on. The book begins with a startling event but never builds on that tension. Boring trumped romance.

This is the first book in the "Lucky O’Toole" series. I really enjoyed it and I’m really looking forward to the next one. Lucky is the chief problem-solver at a top ranked Las Vegas casino/hotel. The book is part chick-lit, part mystery, part romance and all fun. It was fast paced from the very beginning and stayed that way until the end. I loved Lucky and all the insane, chaotic and wicked situations she had to fix. Pure delight.

#1 in the series. Good protagonist, but there is a bit too much romance for mystery purists. Pretty sharp, though.

I didn't want to fall in love - I wanted to be in control.
