Book Review of “Swamp Sniper (Miss Fortune Mystery #3)” by Jana Deleon


rom New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jana DeLeon, the third book in the Miss Fortune Mystery series.
When only a crack shot will do…
In the two weeks CIA assassin Fortune Redding has been hiding in Sinful, Louisiana, she’s been harassed, poisoned, and shot at…and that was the easy part. But now, she’s about to face her biggest challenge since setting foot in the tiny bayou town.
When mayoral candidate Ted Williams is murdered, everyone is surprised. Ted was a blowhole and a Yankee, but those usually weren’t good reasons to kill someone. When Sinful Ladies Society leader Ida Belle becomes the lead suspect in the crime, Fortune knows she’s got to solve a murder and save one of the only friends she’s ever had.
But as the investigation begins, more and more secrets surface, and Fortune realizes that sometimes nothing is as it seems.

Genre: Cozy Mystery
My Review

It is just her 3rd week in Sinful but Fortune Redding cannot keep away from trouble. This time it is Ida Bella who needs saving and Fortune does not think twice before jumping full fledged into the fight.

The 3rd book in the series is just as hilarous as all the previous books. With the death of a Mayor candidate, the suspicion rises on the contesting candidate Ida Bella. Fortune and Gertie has no choice this time. However, this time the story drags a lot. Yes, the antics are there, so are the humor. But the thrill is not there as much as the previous stories.

However it is still a fun read and can go ahead just because you simply love Fortune and her Swamp Team a lot. A 3.5 stars story
