I dove right into this book after finishing Lucky Stiff, since the ending left us with sort of a shock regarding Lucky's mother. The story line in So Damn Lucky revolves around the disappearance of a magician. That in and of itself wouldn't be too strange, especially in a city like Las Vegas, but the circumstances surrounding the disappearance become more and more peculiar and suspicious. While trying to help solve the case, Lucky also has to deal with her confusing and unstable love life. Once again, I absolutely loved the characters. I love reading about her parent's relationship; they're like teenagers and are so cute together. I enjoyed getting to know the new chef, Jean-Charles more in this book. My first impression of him in Lucky Stiff was that he was a jerk; in So Damn Lucky, we learn more about his life and my opinion of him completely changed. Paxton Dane is his usually yummy self (I don't know how Lucky resists him). And then there's Teddie...
On one hand I was so happy that Teddie was finally able to live his dream and be a star. Unfortunately, distance is rough on a relationship. It was hard to judge what was going to happen between Lucky and Teddie, as well as the rest of the men in her life, but it sure had me turning the pages as fast as I could to find out!
If you're looking for a fast-paced novel with humor and romance then you should definitely make yourself acquainted with the Lucky O'Toole series, especially this newest installment. I don't know what is in store for the characters next, but I know I'm definitely along for the ride!
