Soldiers of Fortune (Miss Fortune Series #6) by Jana DeLeon

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jana DeLeon, the sixth installment in the bestselling Miss Fortune series.

When Celia Arceneaux was elected mayor of Sinful, Louisiana, Fortune Redding expected trouble. The woman has an unmatched talent for making the worst of any situation, especially if it means getting revenge on her sworn enemies Ida Belle and Gertie.

At the Fourth of July celebration, an explosion rocks Sinful and it’s not from fireworks. Most people assume it was a moonshine still, but when evidence points to a meth lab deep in the bayous of Sinful, Fortune realizes how dire the situation is for the tiny town. With Carter on medical leave and no one left at the sheriff’s department who can handle the investigation, Fortune, Ida Belle, and Gertie decide to take matters into their own hands.

This is (another) mission for Swamp Team 3.

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.

Love this series so much ! Fortune,Ida Mae, and Gertie keep you on your toes with their antics and wit on their many adventures. I fine myself laughing out loud so much it gets kind of embarrassing with other people around. This adventure pertains to the trio trying to find a meth operation. Its a great story.

As usual, Jana Deleon, has done it, again. Her wit and writing are so smooth and fluent that the words become a movie in my mind. I feel as if I know the characters personally. Love the Mudbug and Miss Fortune Series. They are very entertaining and delightful. They are full of emotion .. funny, happy, sad and danger (which usually makes you laugh out loud).

I love this series. I laughed so hard at Gertie riding on a blownup aligator behind a fast airboat it took me several tissues to wipe the tears away. Such a feel good series.

4 stars I have so much fun reading this series. I liked Soldiers of Fortune. I laughed so hard at some of these situation that they get into. So much drama, action and mystery. It is also a clean read. The characters are such a wide range of characters. Fortune is the main character. She is a CIA Assassin hiding in the small town of Sinful, Louisiana. As a yankee who inherited her Aunts house. She is hiding because a gun runner put a contract out on her and a mole in the CIA gave them her real name. Ida Belle and Gertie are not your average senior citizens. They were spies during Vietnam War. They still have lots of skills and try to solve the town problems. They are the only ones who know what and who Fortune is. There is a new Mayor in town. She has fired the sheriff and put her own relative in town that no one likes or trusts. Carter is still out on sick leave. A bomb goes off in the swamp most people think it was a still that exploded. But really a meth lab. No one is investigating. So the three of them start to investigate on the side. If you like good snappy dialog and funny situations with strong characters pick up A Miss Fortune Mystery. I so want Carter to find out the truth but don't know how things will work out for them Review first publishe

Even though the stories should not work..they do. Love the fact that Gertie and Ida belle are in their senior years, their street smarts, the bravery, and the love of their town and country is magnificent. Fortune and these ladies make me feel proud and hopeful!

This time Jana DeLeon came back and came back strong. After the two previous books having slightly slacked in story line, this one is brilliantly amusing and adventurous to cope up with the series. Celia has gone far too much ahead with her Mayorship and the new Sheriff is also up to no good. But when a meth lab threatens to open up in Sinful, the Swamp Snipers take it upon themselves to clean the city. Gertie, Ida Belle and Fortune are truly hilarious all through the story. Not even once does it go slow at all. Right from start to end, it is fun filled and entertaining. It takes mark on all the parameters to be measured. The story line is beautiful, the characters are wonderful, the story is hilarious and the mystery is captivating. A beautiful cozy mystery
