A stolen truffle might not seem like much, but in Lucky Catch by Deborah Coonts, it's a very sought after, expensive truffle and people are turning up dead. As always, Lucky finds herself at the center, but she cares even more this time as her new sort-of boyfriend disappears at the same time that someone is found dead at his restaurant. Coonts really ups the stakes for Lucky in this fifth book of the series both in terms of the crime and her love life (Lucky's former love is back and wants Lucky back). When all is revealed, Lucky's skill at thinking on her feet proves vital as she once again faces danger.
