I just finished What Happens in Vegas by Natasha Deen and laughed so much, I could live an extra fifty years if laughter truly IS the best medicine. Poor Binda is clumsy and awkward at the most inopportune times, yet manages to come out smelling like only slightly wilted roses. I don’t know how Corin will survive her, but he’s my kind of hero just for the effort. I can’t say enough about this comical story set in, you guessed it, Las Vegas. It is funny, warm-hearted, sensual and all around exciting as a suspense. Gangstering will never be seen the same I have a feeling. lol Written in first person, this one didn’t pull me in- it jerked me off my feet head first! I forgot it was even first person, or that first person verbiage distracts me. The characters aren’t well rounded the way you’d expect them to be- well defined- yet that doesn’t matter for some reason. They are defined in the moment of the story, so background is moot. Oddly. I know all I need to about this couple and even the secondary characters, without all their life stories spelled out to fill the possible blanks. The way this is written, there really are no blanks. The one time I thought I’d found a plot hole, Ms. Deen filled it in before I could worry about it. Well done and great humor story! Congrats on your IDA win!
