Summary

Rest when you’re dead?

It’s time for the annual Halloween festival in Sinful, and Fortune, Ida Belle, and Gertie can’t wait to suit up and enjoy the food and activities. But when a dead man gallops through the park on a black stallion and slides to a decapitated stop right in front of Swamp Team 3, they know another festival is about to be turned on its head...so to speak.

Gil Forrest never won any popularity contests, and his dramatic and somewhat horrifying ride isn’t going to improve his statistics. But since his body was supposed to be tucked away in a funeral home, no one could explain how it ended up on a horse in the middle of the festival. Everything about the setup is strange, and Fortune, Ida Belle, and Gertie suspect there is more to the Headless Horseman ride than just a tasteless prank. And they plan to find out what it is.

Always a pleasure!

So many books to choose from! It seems like there’s been a dry spell for a few weeks now but today I purchased six new releases- WOW!! Anyway, I’ve just finished listening to a few heavy books and when I saw this new book in the Fortune Redding series I decided I had to begin my listening marathon with this one. I really needed something light and fun and this book did not disappoint me. For anyone who has never listened to anything in this series I would suggest listening at least to Louisiana Long Shot first for background on all of the main characters. After that each book is a standalone. I prefer listening in order for continuity.
This is a really fun book. It takes place during the Halloween celebration where murder and mayhem are a real treat!
Cassandra Campbell does an outstanding job narrating.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

amazing as always

first, they're better NEVER be another narrator, because she always does so good with the voices.
And, second I would like multiple book releases at once because I need more and I've already listened to the series like 3 times.that is all.

I Just love This Series.

First of all I own all 20 kindle books and of course all the Audible. Cassandra did another great job on narration.
The story has all the characters you love but just mention of The Mafioso father and son Big & Little. Manney has become thier go too contact for the family.
Yes buy it, well worth your money. Waiting impatiently for book 21.

Marvelous entertaining mystery series!

Frightfully Fortune is the 20th novel in the wonderful Miss Fortune series by Lana DeLeon with outstanding narration by Cassandra Campbell. Fortune, Ida Belle, and Gertie are off on another adventure that involves a headless horseman. As always there is a lot of fun as the ladies solve the mystery and the murders. I love this book and this series and recommend it.

Another great addition

Jana DeLeon has done it again, adding a winner to the Fortune series. Cassandra Campbell once again, gave an excellent performance as she brought it all together and to life.

Love love love this series

This one did not disappoint. Lots of twists and turns and possible suspects made it impossible to guess who done it. Of course Gertie did not disappoint. Absolutely hysterical. Gotta love getting Cecilia once again. I really want Allie & Deputy Breaux to get together!!!
