Summary

Nothing says Welcome Home like a murder.

It’s official. Fortune Redding is out of the CIA and a newly minted resident of Sinful, Louisiana. She never expected her homecoming to be all apple pie and hugs, but a murder wasn’t on her list of things to deal with before she’d even gotten her name stenciled on her mailbox. 

Boone Carre-Hooch, to the locals - was a drunk and a louse and had shafted pretty much everyone he’d ever done business with. So when someone kills him, there is no shortage of suspects. Unfortunately, Ally is at the top of the list.

Fortune, Ida Belle, and Gertie know that Ally isn’t capable of murdering anyone, but with an ambitious ADA looking to make a name for himself, and the local gossip train intent on finding someone to blame, they know they have to find the killer and clear Ally’s name.

This Series Needs to be Televised!

This has got to be the most heartwarming, and hysterical volume of the Miss Fortune series! It’s a cross between The Golden Girls and an NCIS clone! Just the right type of novel to cheer you up with its lighthearted, improbable incidents!

The author’s writing style is infectious, just like the humour. I look forward to each new episode in the series...

Great!

I thoroughly enjoyed the book, found myself smiling and laughing a good portion of the book. Jana has a great knack of making the people in her books come alive! Cassandra’s narration is perfect.

My go to feel good series!

I love Ida and Gertie! They are like a modern Lucy and Ethel minus Ricky and Fred but with a military background! LOL I love fortune to! She really adds something wonderful to all of the books and I think she inspires these two women to not just sit around and knit booties and get old! LOL I am even warming up to Carter and think he would be good for fortune! The author has done a really good job at making these characters likable and well rounded! You can actually like these characters and cheers throughout the whole book for them! That plus a great plot makes a great series big thumbs up for Jana! You can read these books as standalone’s, but really, once you warm up to these characters I think you will want to go back and read the series from the beginning. Just like I did!

So glad for new editions, but

I noticed at least six instances where the narrator used the wrong name or mixed up the words.

One other thing... when is Carter ever going to stand up for Fortune when Celia calls her a slut. Not OK regardless of how neutral he’s trying to be. Or why doesn’t Fortune sue Celia for slander and defamation of character? Guess it’s an underdog storyline but in the Me Two days it’s becoming tiresome.

Love This Series

As always this is another enjoyable book for the Miss Fortune Mystery Series. All of the usual characters are present and accounted for along with a few new ones thrown in for variety. The mystery is entertaining and there is a lot of humor.

Funny mystery, fun series

I am a fan of this author and this series. I also like the narration. It is fun each time a new book comes out. I love the characters and small southern town. Gertie is hilarious with her purse of doom. This book has Fortune transitioning from hiding under a false identity to actually being able to tell everyone who she is. This series is clean and can be listened to out loud. I can't wait to see what is in store for Fortune, Ida Belle and Gertie in the next book
