When Celia Arceneaux was elected mayor of Sinful, Louisiana, Fortune Redding expected trouble. The woman has an unmatched talent for making the worst of any situation, especially if it means getting revenge on her sworn enemies Ida Belle and Gertie.
At the Fourth of July celebration, an explosion rocks Sinful and it’s not from fireworks. Most people assume it was a moonshine still, but when evidence points to a meth lab deep in the bayous of Sinful, Fortune realizes how dire the situation is for the tiny town. With Carter on medical leave and no one left at the sheriff’s department who can handle the investigation, Fortune, Ida Belle, and Gertie decide to take matters into their own hands.
This is (another) mission for Swamp Team 3.
Genre: Cozy Mystery
This time Jana DeLeon came back and came back strong. After the two previous books having slightly slacked in story line, this one is brilliantly amusing and adventurous to cope up with the series. Celia has gone far too much ahead with her Mayorship and the new Sheriff is also up to no good. But when a meth lab threatens to open up in Sinful, the Swamp Snipers take it upon themselves to clean the city. Gertie, Ida Belle and Fortune are truly hilarious all through the story. Not even once does it go slow at all.
Right from start to end, it is fun filled and entertaining. It takes mark on all the parameters to be measured. The story line is beautiful, the characters are wonderful, the story is hilarious and the mystery is captivating. A beautiful cozy mystery
