So Damn Lucky by Deborah Coonts
Lucky's missing Ted badly and she feels like he is picking his dream over her, which puts her in a bad mood. Her mom is newly pregnant and her dad, The Big Boss, wants to tell the world that Lucky is his daughter, much to her chagrin. Then the new chef they hired for the restaurant in the Athena, a casino recently purchased, argues constantly with Lucky about renovations. It doesn't help that the handsome Paxton Dane is still circling her, giving Lucky ideas about infidelity to Ted.
When Lucky's apartment is broken into, she knows she must be getting close to figuring out where the magician has disappeared to. Ted comes home for a visit, but Lucky's emotions are all over the place and she ends up taking her frustrations out on her father. When there is an attempt on her life, she knows she needs to make some life-changing and soul searching decisions, and fast.
SO DAMN LUCKY is the third installment in the LUCKY O'TOOLE series, following WANNA GET LUCKY? and LUCKY STIFF. If there's trouble to be found, it usually winds up on Lucky's doorstep and she meets it head on every time. With twists and turns of not only the mystery, but the love lives of herself and those closest to her, SO DAMN LUCKY is a rip-roaring good time. Magical and thoroughly entertaining, I love this series!
