Ida Belle is in trouble so it's Gertie and Fortune to the rescue
on 28 November 2017
This is the third in the Miss Fortune series and you do not need to have read the other two to enjoy this book but I would start at the beginning. Fortune, a C I A assassin is hiding out in Sinful, Louisiana. Her last mission went wrong so she needs a place to hide till the price on her head can be dealt with. Her cover is that of a librarian who has come to town to close up her dead aunts estate but Fortunes not in town twenty four hours before being introduced to the Sinful Ladies Society in the form of Gertie and Ida Belle two elderly (but do not say that in front of them) southern single ladies who were good friends of Fortunes "aunt". Murder and mystery ensues with the Sinful Ladies determined to find the killer themselves. Not that they do not find the sheriffs deputy Carter capable of solving the crime but as the murderer seems determined to frame Ida Belle she needs all the help she can get and the Sinful Ladies have their own way of doing things. Even if sometimes things do not go exactly to plan. An excellent series, full of humour with characters who don't take themselves too seriously i find Gertie hilarious and wish I could meet a woman like her in real life, what a joy. I can't believe I have missed such an excellent series till it was ten books in. Oh well what great fun I'm having catching up with all the fun.
