review: lucky stiff by deborah coonts

In the second Lucky O'Toole adventure, an oddsmaker is found dead in the shark tank of a hotel near the one where Lucky works as head of Customer Relations. Very soon Lucky is connected to the case as the dead woman had some very significant interactions in Lucky's hotel right before she was murdered. Lucky is determined to get to the bottom of the case even as she's distracted by her ever-complicated personal life.

As she did in Wanna Get Lucky?, Lucky proves to be a competent investigator and public relations guru. Deborah Coonts expertly mixes the mystery with comedy as Lucky has the same wit she had in the first book in the series. Many of the characters in the subplots wind up being involved in the novel's conclusion as the mystery is wrapped up with an outcome that's not easily guessed.
5/5
