Product Description

Product Description

It was a hell of a long shot.... 



CIA assassin Fortune Redding is about to undertake her most difficult mission ever--in Sinful, Louisiana. With a leak at the CIA and a price placed on her head by one of the world's largest arms dealers, Fortune has to go off-grid, but she never expected to be this far out of her element. Posing as a former beauty queen turned librarian in a small bayou town seems worse than death to Fortune, but she's determined to fly below the radar until her boss finds the leak and puts the arms dealer out of play. Unfortunately, she hasn't even unpacked a suitcase before her newly inherited dog digs up a human bone in her backyard.



Thrust into the middle of a bayou murder mystery, Fortune teams up with a couple of seemingly sweet old ladies whose looks completely belie their hold on the little town. To top things off, the handsome local deputy is asking her too many questions. If she's not careful, this investigation might blow her cover and get her killed. Armed with her considerable skills and a group of elderly ladies the locals dub The Geritol Mafia, Fortune has no choice but to solve the murder before it's too late.



What authors are saying: 



"Southern wit at its best!" - NYT Bestselling author Gemma Halliday 



"Sinfully funny!" - NYT Bestselling author CC Hunter/Christie Craig 



What readers are saying: 



"If you like Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series, you'll love Miss Fortune."



"This was a hoot!!! If you like mysteries and Southern eccentrics, this is the book for you. More twists and turns than the Louisiana bayou."



"It has a flavor of Miss Congeniality, but it is much more than that."



"I read this book in one night, unable to put it down because I couldn't wait to see what happened next."



"I've rarely thanked writers for the entertainment they provide. Nevertheless, I feel strangely compelled not only to thank this author, but to recommend this book to everybody and anybody - I give it five laugh out loud stars!"

About the Author

Jana DeLeon grew up among the bayous and small towns of southwest Louisiana. She's never actually found a dead body or seen a ghost, but she's still hoping. Jana started writing in 2001 after attending a funeral, but that's a whole other story. She focuses on murderous plots set deep in the Louisiana bayous and the secrets that lie just beneath the surface of small towns. By day, she writes very boring technical manuals for a software company in Dallas.

Would recommend this for a good fun read. The witty one liners and the larger than life characters spring from the page and made me laugh out loud at times. Typical of this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent 20 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. It was very cleverly funny. A light read for those who want just a little more substance than the usual light read romcoms. I've read many of this authors books and she is consistent in her humour. This one may be the best yet though. The characters are marvelous and really come to life. I could imagine Ida Belle and Gertie as though they were sitting in my own living room, except that would be much too tame and boring for them. I'm just about to buy another book by this author. I'm sure it will be equally as good.

Jana has created another brilliant character here. Set in the deep South of Louisiana. Added to the mystery is so much humour which had me laughing out loud. Just hope she writes a sequel soon!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable 14 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A good read overall. I wasn't really sure what to expect, a bit like a Stephanie Plum sort of thing and while it is in that sort of vein, the main character is quite different to Stephanie so I didn't find myself making comparisons. It was of course, very far fetched and it did seem a bit odd that for someone who has supposedly killed so many people, she seemed a bit inept at times really which did make it a bit less believable for me. However, if you don't think too much around it all, it is a light and easy read and there were some funny parts. All in all I did enjoy it. I downloaded it for free aswell and it was pretty good for a free book. It had also clearly been proof read which is a huge plus for me.
