review: lucky ride by deborah coonts

Lucky has only just returned from her adventure in Macau when a teenager walks into her office claiming to be the daughter of a woman she’s never met, but does have a photograph of. That woman very much resembles Lucky’s mother, Mona. But Lucky isn’t willing to just take the girl claiming to be named Tawny Rose at her word, so she launches a bit of an investigation. And since this wouldn’t be a Lucky O’Toole novel without a murder, Lucky’s investigation of “Tawny Rose” leads her right to a murder at the touring rodeo where “Tawny Rose” works.

As Lucky hesitantly embarks on creating a family of her own with Jean-Charles, it seems only fitting that the eighth book of the series would delve into the history of Lucky’s mother. It will be interesting to see how this new information will shape Lucky’s relationship with Mona as the series continues as well as how this new family member will fit. Lucky Ride is a fun read with a great murder mystery, but the killer’s motivation needed to be fleshed out a little more. At the end, the question of “why start killing now?” still lingered.
4/5
