I'm not sure I decided to add snark to the Lucky, books, specifically to Lucky's own voice, it just happened that way. When I was a kid, my mouth always got me into trouble. Finally, I've found a way to harness the sarcasm for the Forces of Good--or at least in a way not to anger my grandmother. And when Lucky started talking to me, she had a strong dose of sass in her.The Lucky O'Toole Vegas Adventure series is hard to categorize. Is that by design? When I set out to write Wanna Get Lucky?, I knew I wanted to write a romp through Las Vegas. I had the characters and the setting but no real understanding of narrative drive. So, I threw a young woman out of a tour helicopter into the middle of the Pirate Show and let the story unfold. A bit of murder to keep the plot moving, some wisecracking and Vegas mischief to make you laugh, and some romance to keep it interesting. A bit of a mash up, but it works.PRAISE FOR Wanna Get Lucky?"As the first in a series, Wanna Get Lucky? hits the proverbial jackpot." - Booklist

If you loved A Man Called Ove and The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared, You'll love the folks at The Last Stop Retirement Home!Sometimes Inspiration is Found in the Most Unlikely Places . . .To say that fifteen-year-old Cooper isn't thrilled about the idea of spending his entire summer with his grandfather at The Last Stop retirement home is the understatement of the century. The fact that he has to work there for the privilege of sleeping on his grandfather's couch only adds insult to injury.The folks at the retirement home aren't too sure about him, either. His hair is forever hanging in his eyes, for one, and he seems determined to go the entire summer without uttering a single word. While they are trying to keep an open mind, Cooper is doing nothing to change their opinion that youth is just an unfortunate stage to becoming an old person.But something surprising happens over the course of the summer, forcing everyone involved to reevaluate their opinion of the opposing generation.In this, the third installment of The Last Stop series, the whole gang is here: Amato, the boisterous chef, who Cooper has the misfortune of working for; Byron, the hyper-competitive, former Olympian, who gives Cooper pointers on his less than impressive physique; Kelly, the much feared fitness instructor, who teaches him to take pride in even the most mundane tasks; Harry, the maintenance man, who teaches him the value of hard work. And, of course, Holy Moses, the facility's canine mascot, who's respect Cooper must earn.There's a new resident, too, making his first appearance: Ain't He Something, a retired racehorse, who provides his own very entertaining life lessons . . .Book 3 of 3 in The Last Stop Retirement Community SeriesNote: All books in the series can be read and enjoyed in any order.

Description:

"A triumphantly preposterous fish-out-of-water campus caper…hilarious." —Washington PostIn this brilliant mix of literary satire and crime caper, Frankie Abandonato, a small-time con man on the run, finds refuge by posing as V. S. Mohle—a famously reclusive writer—and teaching in a prestigious writing program somewhere in Texas. Streetwise and semiliterate, Frankie finds that being treated as a genius agrees with him.The program has been funded by Rex Schoeninger, the world’s richest novelist, who is dying. Buzzards are circling, angling for the remains of Rex’s fortune, and Frankie quickly realizes that he has been presented with the opportunity of a lifetime. Complicating matters is the fact that Rex is haunted by a twenty-five-year feud with the shadowy Mohle. What rankles Rex is that, while he has written fifty bestsellers and never gotten an ounce of literary respect, Mohle wrote one slender novel, disappeared into the woods, and become an icon. Determined to come to terms with his past, Rex has arranged to bring his rival to Texas, only to find himself facing off against an imposter.Famous Writers I Have Known is not just an unforgettable literary romp but also a surprisingly tender take on two men—one a scam artist frantic to be believed, the other an old lion desperate to be remembered.
