The fifth Lucky O’Toole Vegas Adventure


Deborah Coonts

Trouble always comes in threes.  At least that’s what Lucky O’Toole, the VP of Customer Relations for Las Vegas’ primo Strip casino/hotel, the Babylon, has heard for years from her mother.  So, tonight, when Teddie, her former lover shows up at her office unannounced and very unexpected, her father offers Teddie a job at the Babylon, she is called to deal with a pig in residence at one of the hotels most exclusive and opulent suites, and Lucky’s current lover, Jean-Charles Bouclet stops answering his phone leaving Lucky to handle his five-year-old son, Lucky figures she has tonight’s compliment of chaos covered.

As usual, she is a tad optimistic.

With a cadre of celebrity chefs with the maturity of teenagers in Vegas for a televised cook-off, a prized Alba truffle in the Babylon’s care, and her mother’s pregnancy racing toward the inevitable, what could go wrong?

When the truffle is stolen from the walk-in in Jean-Charles’ gourmet burger joint at the Babylon and a young chef apparently killed with a smoking gun is found in Jean-Charles’ food truck on the back lot, trouble takes a sinister turn. 

And Jean-Charles still isn’t answering his phone.

Another body is discovered.  This one stuffed in an oven at Jean-Charles’ eponymous restaurant and set to broil. 

Desperate to put a lid on the body count and more than frantic over her AWOL lover, Lucky uses her Vegas contacts to search in places and in ways the police wouldn’t or couldn’t.  Teddie insists on riding shotgun.  Lucky hasn’t the time nor the resolve to say no.  She’s never been able to resist Teddie … not really.  With danger dogging their heels, Lucky finds herself falling once again under his spell as they traverse Vegas, being drawn deeper and deeper into the highly competitive world of high-end eateries and the battle for the very rare, most highly prized gourmet foodstuffs.

Would somebody really kill for a truffle?

In a heartbeat.

And when Lucky’s path crosses the killer’s… will her goose be cooked?

Chrystal Vaughan shares her Conspiracy of Ravens!


Deanna:  Tell us a bit about yourself  that our readers might not know.
Chrystal: I am a big coward when it comes to scary movies. I can read anything, and I can write some of the most twisted murder scenes, but I can't watch scary movies. Paranormal Activity gave me nightmares for weeks and we still don't mention The Grudge in my household.
Deanna:  What do you do to relax?
Chrystal: I read all the time. When I'm not writing I'm either reading, knitting, or spinning yarn for relaxation.
Deanna:  As authors, we’ve sometimes been accused of being several people. How many personalities live in your mind?
Chrystal: No less than seven. It's very distracting and crowded up in my brain.

More from Author Rose Gordon

Rose Gordon gives us 
some more about her life.....

I’m an unusually unusual individual who writes for the love of the characters and the story they create.
I have an accounting diploma that hangs above my desk,  a box of model rockets in the closet, dozens of history and science textbooks on my bookshelf and even a few “FOR SALE” signs in my garage. To say I dreamt of being a writer all my life is far from true. But nonetheless, it’s what I enjoy the most.
