Especially when a fortune of rare wine is stolen from her fiancé’s family in a daring heist using the tunnels under Paris.

I love Lucky, but please go back to Vegas and less philosophical meandering.

True confessions time— I’ve read every single Lucky Adventure (ok, devoured really), & while I love them all, I’ve never really felt that Lucky’s fiancé, Jean-Charles, was worthy of her. I know, I’m supposed to love him. But, there’s always been something just a little, not-quite-right about him. In Lucky Ce Soir, Deborah Coonts latest Lucky O”Tooke “Paris/Vegas” Adventure, the mystery of Jean-Charles is just a fraction of what our girl Lucky has to face, in what’s supposed to be her big engagem ...more

Another good addition to the series

Good, characters, plot and mystery. I throughly enjoyed this one. Ms. Coonts has a way of grabbing you from the first paragraph and not letting.

Read this only if you have read the other books in the series (this is number 10). The earlier books are much more entertaining though you do learn something about the French wine industry in this book. Thank heavens Lucky hasn't settled for any of the men in her life.

Lucky is in Paris with her fiancé Jean-Charles meeting her future in laws. The party at there home is for them. But things take a turn in a not great direction. Adventure, murder, and mayhem always follow Lucky wherever she goes.
The book was fast paced. It made me laugh. Lucky is so amazing. But when someone comes from her past Jean-Charles takes it the wrong way.

See what happens.

I’ve been following the adventures of Lucky O’Toole for years now, and while this latest adventure wasn’t my favorite, it was still a great book. This time Lucky is away from her precious Las Vegas and in Paris to meet her future in-laws. The story gets off to a quick start and Lucky is soon called upon to help her fiancé’s family. The mystery revolves around the world of wine, and I have to admit to having no knowledge of the subject or any real interest in it. Reading about it wasn’t all that ...more

What an adventure for Lucky O’Toole as she visits Paris with her fiancé, Jean-Charles and his son Christophe. Lucky meets Jean-Paul’s parents and while her future mother-in-law appears as formidable as she has been warned, his father is in ill health. At their first meeting, Jean-Charles’s father has been injured and the families vault of rare wine has been robbed. Lucky will need to do what she is famous for…problem solving. A bound and injured man from Lucky’s past is found near the vault and ...more

Lucky is in Paris, far from home and surrounded by people who doubt her or make her doubt herself, and yet even as she worries about her family and questions her relationships and life choices, she's still the most competent and kick-ass person around, reacting without hesitation to whatever threatens those she cares about or piques her curiosity. And I love how, even when she's basically alone in a foreign country and doesn't know who she can trust, she still has such a strong sense of self, an ...more

This newest book in the Lucky series by Deborah Coonts is fresh and different as it is set in Paris. Lucky is in France to meet her fiance's parents and see where Jean-Charles grew up. She is somewhat intimidated as they own one of the oldest and finest vineyards in France.

The Bouclet's entire library (cellar) of wine is stolen during her welcome party and, being Lucky, she jumps headfirst into finding who stole the wine and where it is hidden. She gets attacked, hit by a car, kidnapped, and af

Lucky is back .....Well sort this book finds Lucky out on her own in France away from her beloved Las Vegas and friends. I did enjoy the book but couldn't help but miss the usual characters (Mrs P, Brandy, the beautiful Jeremy even Mona was quieter in this book than normal.)

Lucky just can't catch a break. Lucky O'Toole, Vegas "trouble-shooter" extrodinaire, has a difficult time keeping her job from invading her personal life. You would think that flying to Paris to meet her fiancé's family would put her far from troubles...but the day she meets her snooty in-laws-to-be, their precious, priceless wine collection disappears. Now Jean-Charles, her fiancé, is looking to Lucky to save the day... I enjoy Deborah Coonts' laugh-out-loud Lucky O'Toole series, Lucky Ce Soir ...more

Lucky and Jean-Charles are in Paris, Lucky is sure her future mother-in-law will be the death of her (probably by murder).
While at a party Jean-Charles father is attacked and it is discovered that their entire library of wines has been stolen.

Lucky's ex, Teddie, is in town for the grand opening of his new review, Lucky is implicated in the wine theft, the Chief police officer is one of Jean-Charles former flames, and she still has a flame for him. Then you have the murder, kidnapping, and a fe

When I was in upper elementary school, we would sometimes jump rope “Double Dutch”...a style that requires two long ropes to be turned by two people in opposite directions while a third person did the jumping. It was tricky to enter the jumping area, and once you did you had to skillfully jump double time. Lucky books remind me of that...once you enter the story, the pace is fast and tricky. I admire Lucky's bravery and insight into life, and Lucky Ce Soir does not disappoint. It is also fascina ...more

Ah, Lucky, it is so good to see you back in Lucky Ce Soir. Lucky is one of my favorite fictional characters. Told in first person you have to be patient with the narrative; Lucky is not always on track. Knowing what Lucky knows, in a somewhat stream of consciousness manner, is what is so much fun about this series. You also never know what high-jinx Lucky will get into, but you know the ride will be a heck of a lot of fun. Lucky in Paris brings a magical quality to the whole story, even as it th ...more

Lucky is in Paris to meet her future in-laws. Then someone steals some very expensive wine from her fiancé’s family. Lucky isn't sure what to do, after all she isn't in Vegas, this is Paris. When someone from her past shows up and implicates her in the crime. Now that is going to far! One way or another, Lucky is getting to the bottom if this no matter what her possible in-laws may think! If you haven't read any of Lucky's adventures, you are missing out! They are funny, the characters are like ...more

I have read every book in this series and this book did not disappoint. The author has a way of grabbing you from page one and just when you think that you have the whole thing figured out, she throws in more twists so that you really aren't sure who did what. I will not add spoilers, but, the one I suspected was the one behind a lot of what happened, however, the additional "happenings" were DEFINITELY unexpected. I loved it and can't wait for more adventures from Lucky and her band of quirky, ...more

I have loved all the Lucky books and enjoyed this one as well. I missed the Las Vegas characters and scenery! For some reason, this book didn't flow as easily for me as previous books have but the scene with Lucky, Teddy and Jean- Charles near the end is a classic. I appreciate that Ms. Coonts weaves in references to current events - in particular, the reference to the Vegas shooting and Stan Lee. If you enjoy this series, you can't skip this book! There's important developments in her personal ...more

I can't believe I made it through this book. It's all so contrived and repetitive. And this is a series?! I only realized I'd read the last one in the series at the end of the book. Thank God. I don't think I could make it through another. The main character continually tells us she knows who she is, but then questions every thought in her head. Not one thing is said without some sort of mental chatter, which could be great if only I cared about this character. Completely ridiculous. We are cons ...more

Lucky is off to Paris.

It doesn't matter where Lucky finds herself . Trouble seems to find her . But she is the problem solver even though in a strange country. Counterfeit wine? A dead body, a run in with an old friend or two, running from the police or filling them in, leave it to Lucky, trying to stay on the right side of the law. Totally different setting, but we see a different view of lucky. The book takes off keeps you going and then leaves you hanging. Anxiously waiting for the next in t

I had high hopes for Lucky's latest adventure. I was NOT disappointed. She has more serious issues to deal with in this book, but deal she does with her usual flair. I love Lucky best on her own turf, really, but Paris was something new, and she handled the challenges just fine. If you like a strong woman who is not afraid to take the bull by the horns, Lucky is your gal. 4 stars, only because they can't ALL get 5 stars. And I missed the Vegas people.

Lucky is in Paris.. the city of lights, and of love. Maybe not the place for Lucky to keep her love alive though. A meet and greet with the Mother in Law has Lucky shaking in her boots.
Missing wine, missing love, but Teddie is hanging around and that always brings up past issues for poor Lucky.
You'll fall in love with Lucky, and you'll feel all her crazy emotions as she has quite the narrative going on all the time in her head. I love these books!

Another wild time with Lucky in Paris. A lot is going on and you are holding your breath throughout the bookl. Jean-Charles is cold and acting superior. Teddy is causing trouble again. Lucky has men problems, murder, poisoning and a lot of deception. So sad that she and Jean-Charles broke up. Christoph really humanized Lucky and brought her down to earth. She needs to have a reason to slow down and take life at a more normal pace. Being a mother gave her a reason to be careful

Love Lucky and the whole series, her Paris adventure was a wonderful glimpse of that city, with a thrilling adventure as the top layer.. Most of the way along I had no clue where this was heading, the twists and turns were again the usual fast paced mystery thrill. The surprise ending was strangely satisfying. As much as I have enjoyed Lucky's international travels, I can't wait for her to get back home and see what happens next. I missed Vegas, although I did enjoy Paris.

Once again Lucky finds herself in the middle of chaos while people are dying. Trying to solve multiple mysteries has her running ragged while she is supposed to be meeting her soon to be in-laws and winning them over. Good luck with that, she just walked into the door and already she is found wanting by their standards. Join Lucky as she navigates Paris making friends (or enemies) while solving crimes and searching for love.

Oh, my! Deborah did it again!

I so like Lucky, this self-effacing, beautiful, smart and truly good lady! I always pick up her latest conundrum and can't put it down until it's resolved. I feel tired with her, I hurt with her and I feel and cheer for her to the very end, and that's what I call great writing.

I can't wait for the next book, maybe...Lucky in Love!

Deborah Coonts never fails to write a gripping tale that keeps you immersed from the very first page. Lucky O'Toole is my kind of woman, one who is faithful, tough and just a bit soft when it comes to those she cares for. Lucky has attributes of every woman I know, but all rolled into one fabulous character that every woman can identify with.

Life takes another turn

Murder, counterfeiting, old lovers, all in Paris and. All about wine. Lucky is in Paris to meet her future in-laws. She ends up trying to solve several inter related crimes. By the end, she is battered and bruised, but feels more herself than she has in some time.

Only Lucky Can Have Such Luck.

As usual Lucky has the luck to find herself knee deep in a mystery and dead bodies. Of course add in the two men who have her heart and you have a roller coaster of adventure. She might find herself in the city of love but danger is around every corner waiting for her. A enjoyable read.

Fantastic read. If you are new to the Lucky series and your just starting or a Lucky veteran you won’t be disappointed with volume 10. You will be whisked of to Paris, meet lucky dashing fiancés parent, help solve who stole the family’s elite wine right under there feet. Lucky still gets herself in trouble. The book is full of humour,mystery,family,love and deceit.

Happy Reading

In the beginning of the book, there's quite a few characters to sort through, though a person slowly starts getting the hang of the characters as the book goes on. I feel that one of the villains would have been more credible if they had made more of an appearance in the novel. I got an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
