From New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Kindle Bestselling author, Gemma Halliday...
Tessie King has just inherited the biggest casino in South Lake Tahoe, Nevada: the Royal Lakeside. What she didn't bargain for are the problems she'd inherit with it.
Having left Tahoe years ago, the underbelly of the casino trade is a far cry from the art world Tessie is used to. High-stakes cons, inside jobs, wise guys... Tessie quickly realizes she's in way over her head. And things go from bad to worse when questions start to arise about the nature of her father's death. Enter FBI agent Devin Ryder, member of the Nevada Organized Crime Task Force. He's had his eye on the Royal Palace for months, and with the suspicious death of its leader, Ryder now has Tessie squarely in his sights. If Tessie doesn't want to be running her casino from behind bars, she needs to find out how her father really died, who's behind it, why, and how to get them into Agent Ryder's hot little hands before he gets his hands on her. All the while catching a con-man, beating the competition, and running a multi-million dollar business.
Tough job? Fo'get about it. All in a day's work for this lady luck.

I loved this story. Tessie goes back to her late father's casino. While she tries to find out who might have wanted her father dead, she learns a lot about who she can trust. She also learns a lot about herself in the process. And.... A little something about not judging books or bimbos on their outward appearance.
Cute and entertaining read! Versteeg and Halliday pull you in with a snippy main character as usual, altho a bit ditzy seeming at times. The narrator was good but not great merely because of the odd voices she gave other characters, not the main character (main character/majority of the reading was great).
Fast-paced, light-hearted. No major distractions if you enjoy audio books while you're driving as I do. Just an engaging, fun read.
