LADY LUCK'S MAP OF VEGAS -
        BARBARA SAMUEL

India is a successful web designer who enjoys her life in Denver.  Currently she is involved in a long-distance romance with Jack.  Suddenly, India's life changes when her father passes away.  She made a promise to him that she would care for her mother, Eldora.  Since the death of her husband, Eldora is hitting the "bottle" a little too much. 

India now finds herself back in Colorado Springs with Eldora.  Eldora doesn't drive anymore but she still has her 1957 Thunderbird and doesn't want to ride in anything but this car.   Eldora comes up with the idea that she and India take a trip to Las Vegas to look for India's twin sister, Gypsy.   Gypsy is an artist who lives in the mountain towns of New Mexico.  It seems that Gypsy has many problems of her own.  She is schizophrenic but has been on medicine. 

What secret is Eldora hiding about her past?  On the other hand, what secret is India hiding from Eldora?

The trip Eldora and India take down Route 66 proves to be quite interesting.  Will the secrets be revealed?

This is a mezmorizing book.  In fact, it is one of the best I have read in recent months.  The author, Barbara Samuel, includes a great cast of characters and does such an excellent job of portraying them in their respective roles.  You will be able to picture each character in your mind as you read about them.  This is a terrific book and one that will not bore you!  You should add this one to your reading list.
