Tough Luck Lane is a cozy mystery set in south Florida circa 1997. It was a simpler time, before the internet, when people still were deciding between cassettes and CD’s and when cell phones didn’t take pictures. It is the first in the Tough Luck Series.
Stacey Jennifer Longacre is a bartender who leaves her hard-bit existence in Okeechobee, Florida. She’s likeable, but with a touch of sand.tments
Landing in a quirky Key-West style compound of small bungalows and modest apartments, surrounding a great house and a common courtyard, she and her new-found crew head off a ring of dangerous bad guys who keep her off-balance while perpetrating their deadly game of recruiting young runaway girls only to sell them into slavery on the high seas.
Stacey is no stranger to danger, yes she always strives to do the next right thing in spite of her “tough luck” attitude. A ordinary woman thrown into extraordinary circumstances, she’s someone you will relate to and cheer on.
So grab a cold one, kick back, and welcome to Florida.
