From New York Times bestselling author Jana DeLeon, the seventh book in the Miss Fortune series.
A force to be reckoned with…
During missions as a CIA assassin, Fortune Redding saw and overcame most every obstacle, but Sinful, Louisiana, keeps producing new challenges for her. When a hurricane blows through, it brings a shower of counterfeit money raining down on the tiny bayou town.
When the money is linked back to Ahmad, the arms dealer who issued the kill order on Fortune, everyone is worried that her nemesis is far too close for comfort. When Ahmad’s men turn up in Sinful, the situation becomes life-and-death for Fortune, Ida Belle, and Gertie, and Deputy Carter LeBlanc learns Fortune’s true identity.
As Swamp Team 3 rushes to locate the counterfeiter, Fortune hopes to take down Ahmad and free herself from her fake life. But will her relationship with Carter make it now that he knows the truth?
Genre: Cozy Mystery / Thriller
Jana Deleon has never failed to impress me. But this time she has gone over and beyond impressing and went to outright fabulous. I have never fell in love with any of the other books more than this one. This is by far the best in the Fortune Redding series. This book caps it all in one go and takes the best to give.
Fortune Redding’s shield is almost blown off when it is rumoured that Ahmed might be looking at Sinful with new eyes. This definitely puts up Fortune, Ida bella and Gertie on high alert, but it also involves telling Carter the truth. The way all these are twisted and turned and brought out in this novel is a real amazing reading experience. You feel for Fortune and empathize with her at every step of the book. Every scene is emotionally connecting and every page ties you closer and closer to Fortune. By the end of the book, you will not be able to distinguish your own feeling from that of Fortune.
The book ended on a slightly sad note, but somehow, I do not see that as the end of that chapter. I have all the faith in Fortune, Ida Bella and Gertie to turn this situation around. But more than that, I trust Jana to bring out another miracle in her next book. There are no words how much I am waiting for her next one to come. Cozy Mystery has never become so addictive before.
