Lucky StiffLucky Stiff by Deborah Coonts

Release Date: Today 11/29/2011

Synopsis:

Lucky O’Toole—Head of Customer Relations at The Babylon, premier mega-resort on the Vegas Strip—thinks it’s just another night in Las Vegas. A tractor-trailer has spilled its load of a million honeybees, blocking not only the Strip but the entrance to her hotel…the District Attorney for Clark County—apparently the odd man out of a threesome on the twelfth floor—is hiding in the buff in one of the hotel’s laundry rooms…and Numbers Neidermeyer—one of Vegas’ less-than-savory oddsmakers—is arguing with Las Vegas’ ace private investigator, the Beautiful Jeremy Whitlock.

The next day, Lucky discovers Ms. Neidermeyer was tossed into the shark tank at the Mandalay Bay Resort as a snack for the Tiger Shark. When the police show up at the Babylon with a hastily prepared search warrant, applied for by the District Attorney himself, and Jeremy lands in the hot seat, Lucky realizes her previous night was far from routine. 

Amid the chaos of fight weekend, the hiring of an eccentric new French chef, and her madam mother’s intentions to auction off a young woman’s virginity, Lucky is drawn into a deadly game where no one is what they seem, a game that will end only when she discovers who made fish-food out of Numbers Neidermeyer.

Lucky O’Toole and Fabulous Las Vegas—life doesn’t get any better.

Standing in what would be the VIP section of Saturday night, a throng encircled the ring.  Flash bounded down the stairs, taking two at a time – a feat in her stilettos – and pushed her way to ringside.  As I took a more prudent journey to the floor, Flash squeezed in next to Paxton Dane.  Apparently, she greeted him because I saw him turn and grin in response.  Flash and Dane? Now that would be a pair.  Was the world ready?

Hope you enjoyed my teaser this rainy Tuesday in Michigan, but better than the snow we are supposed to get over night.  I recommend this series it has proven to be very enjoyable.  What teasers do you have for me today?  Please be sure to leave me a comment.
