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.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

This book is funny, entertaining, and simply lovely. It was hard to put down and I hated that it ended. I hope that there are more coming! It had just the right amount of sarcasm and intrigue. I always find it difficult to find books to keep me occupied, but this one hit the nail on the head.


Absolutely loved every minute of this book! I read it cover to cover in one sitting, hard to put down. I could relate to the characters and especially identified with Tessie…how could you not? I thought I was so clever and had it figured out but I was wrong and the ending surprised me, a true sign of excellent writing. Good job! I am a big fan!


The book doubles down on great characters and an outstanding mystery. Another real winner–like being dealt 21 right out of the chute. I can’t wait for the next in this series.


I have read all the Tessie Mysteries and Luck be a Lady did not fail. Another great book in the Tessie Mysteries. Tessie gets pulled into trying to solve the crime to only become a victim in a crime while solving it. Loved this book the same as all the others.


Terrific strong characters in Tessie, Rafe, Ryder and Alf. Comic relief with Tate. Endearing with Britton and her innocence. The story grabs your attention immediately and keeps you in suspense until the very end. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a mystery mixed with suspense and just a touch of humor and romance.
