From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jana DeLeon, the fifth book in the hilarious Miss Fortune series.

Things are starting to look up for Fortune Redding. Even though her life was at stake, the CIA assassin had balked at taking on a new identity in Sinful, Louisiana. But instead of hating it like she’d thought she would, Fortune now has friends she cares about and just finished up an incredible first date with the sexiest deputy in the state. Sure, there’s been a murder or two that she’s gotten mixed up in since she arrived in town, but she’s hoping all of that is behind her.

But when someone almost kills Deputy Carter LeBlanc, Fortune tosses her dreams of peace and quiet into the muddy bayou and shifts back into being the deadly trained professional that she is. With the help of Ida Belle and Gertie, Fortune launches a manhunt, intending to find a killer before he tries again.

About the Author

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jana DeLeon was raised in southwest Louisiana among the bayous and gators. Her hometown is Carlyss, but you probably won't find it on a map. Her family owned a camp located on a bayou just off the Gulf of Mexico that you could only get there by boat. The most important feature was the rope hammock hanging in the shade on a huge deck that stretched out over the water where Jana spent many hours reading books.

Jana and her brother spent thousands of hours combing the bayous in a flat-bottom aluminum boat, studying the natural habitat of many birds, nutria and alligators. She would like you to know that no animals were injured during these "studies," but they kept makers of peroxide in business.

Jana has never stumbled across a mystery or a ghost like her heroines, but she's still hopeful.
She now resides in Dallas, Texas, with the most spoiled Sheltie in the world.

Federal agent Redding is still still stuck in hicksville in witness protection. As Sandy-Sue the librian, she finds her lethal instincts hilariously hindered, but this time she has at least made friends with a "ladies'" club comprised of surprisingly kindred spirits. The men don't stand a chance. Her assassin training stands her in good stead. The winners are us, the readers. Redding is like a lioness assigned to go unnoticed in a society of mice. Good thing the occasional kidnapping or other attempted mayhem comes along to give her an outlet. Good fun!

This is a easy and fun read. The characters and storyline makes me laugh out loud regularly as they find new and outlandish things to do. If you like serious mysteries, than this book is not for you. If you like fun, lively characters with a fun mystery, buy the books in this series. The more I read - the more I enjoy!

Sinfully Funny!!!! A Laugh Out Loud adventure that you'll find yourself enjoying and cringing over! How can these ladies get themselves into so much trouble!!!!!

Carter is attacked!!! What more of an excuse do you want to push yourself deep into the investigation? Fortune is on her 5th week at Sinful and yet another mystery comes up to her doorsteps. This time the story definitely takes a slack. All the other stories still had a lot of punch to it, this one slacks a lot. The only saving grace it has is the relationship between Fortune and Carter. Other than that, the story can be read only for the humor and nothing else. There is no thrill, no action, just a story which goes along just because there is a book to go. Fortune is a trained assassin but just a few weeks in a city and she slacks a lot. That is so much hard to believe. You cannot just lose all your years’ of experience in just a few days of relaxation, where you are still working on so many mysteries. It is too hard to believe. I hope Jana comes back the next time with a pack of punch to rebuild Fortune for us.

I am so in love with the Miss Fortune series !! Jana Deleon has done a fantastic job bringing out all the crazy personalities of all the residents in the town of Sinful. Fortune, Gertie and Ida Mae are always in some kind of hilarious trouble. I can't wait for the next book to come out.
