Overview

Tessie King has just inherited the biggest casino in South Lake Tahoe, Nevada: the Royal Palace. What she didn't bargain for are the problems she inherited 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 King family 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.

    Tessie King has returned to South Lake Tahoe after a long absenc

    Tessie King has returned to South Lake Tahoe after a long absence. Her father, who owns the Royal Palace Casino, died unexpectedly. Tessie learns that she inherits his business. She is stunned, but there is more to come. The Nevada Organized Crime Task Force is investigating. The final blow. Her father was murdered. Can an art gallery curator navigate this dangerous world and find who killed her father? She can with the help of her step-mother, Britton King. They make a great team. The first book in the Tahoe Tessie Mysteries is filled with many plot twists. The dialogue is humorous and the characters are over the top. I loved each and every one. One of my favorites was Alfie Malone, head of security. He is definitely old school. Is he with her or against her? The romance department is well covered with two handsome men: Rafe, her former crush, and Devin, the agent in charge. If you want a light hearted mystery with a unexpected ending, this is the book for you.

    I love Gemma Halliday's books, so of course I had to read this one & it did not disappoint! I really enjoyed this new book & can't wait for more in this series! It's filled with great characters & a mystery that kept me guessing & changing my mind on the "villain". A great read that will be hard to put down!
