So Much Activity,
This review is from: Lucky Bastard (Lucky O'Toole Las Vegas Adventures) (Hardcover)I've only read one other of the Lucky series and thought that continuing on with it would be fun, but I found that to keep up with all the action in this particular story was more like work than pleasure. With the first book I read I had no problems distinguishing who was who and what was going on, but this time I just couldn't figure out all of the back-story. Don't get me wrong the author does a fine job doing her best to keep you up-to-date with what has happened in the past, it is just that this time there is too much happening to too many people to make it easy for the reader to keep up.
Multiple murders, a new relationship, a lack of sleep, a mother driving her crazy and various other things happening to Lucky just sometimes bogs the story down. The descriptions of the hotel, the gambling and the poker tournament give the reader a lot to digest. Then there is the ex-relationship that Lucky is trying to forget and the fact that a 'friend' of hers appears to have murdered his wife. A wife that nobody even knew he had. Several more murders happen and this is even before we are done with the first half of the book! Oh and did I mention that Lucky's Mother wants to open a phone sex hot-line with a woman who is well over ninety?
Too much going on in too short a span of time make this a difficult book to not only read, but to suspend my disbelief for.
