Lucky O’Toole, head of Customer Relations at premier megaresort the Babylon, 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’s less-than-savory oddsmakers - is throwing some major attitude at Las Vegas’s ace private investigator, the beautiful Jeremy Whitlock.
The next day, Lucky discovers Ms. Neidermeyer has been 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 Babylon’s hiring of an eccentric new French chef, and her madam mother’s scheme 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 is such a twit pondering true love ad infinitum she about makes you scream - the plot, such as it is, is stuffed with sub-plots some meant to be funny but are more offensive than funny. I have read the first in the series and didn't think it was so bad. This book seems to be unedited and wanders all over the place.
Lucky has the most wonderful job around. The situations and drama and are really believable but almost outrageous. Funny.. FUN..but mainly interesting.
The love a family could have for adopted children.
Her excellent performance was on par with all the others.. With out a good performance the story would not have been as good.
Lots of laughing.
