Title: Hook, Line and Blinker
Series: Miss Fortune Mystery #10
Author: Jane Deleon
Rating: 

Nobody knows speed like Ida Belle. 

Behind the wheel of her hopped-up Blazer, she’s the queen of the back roads. But when someone tries to kill Hot Rod and steals only black SUVs from his shop, Fortune worries that excessive horsepower is the least of the trouble that comes along with her friend’s new ride. When it becomes clear that the car thieves didn’t get what they were looking for the first time around and Ida Belle’s vehicle becomes their next target, Fortune and Gertie are determined to protect their friend. 

Ida Belle is determined to protect the Blazer. 

    

Fortune is thinking of what she will do when she leaves the CIA, after she is out of danger, but things get complicated when one of Ida Belle's friends get hurt, and they are trying to warn her of danger. 

This was another hilarious addition to this series, and I loved how Fortune is thinking of leaving the CIA, and what her job will be in Sinful. 

The only blemish is Carter and Fortune seem to be having some issues that may end up breaking them or making them. I'm not sure which way the cards will fall, but I'm looking forward to finding out.

Title: Fortune Hunter
Series: Miss Fortune Mystery #8
Author: Jane Deleon
Rating: 

From New York Times bestselling author Jana DeLeon, the eighth book in the Miss Fortune mystery series. 

Someone has created a fake social media identity and is online romancing the lonely women of Sinful in order to scam them out of money. Because he always seems to pick the perfect targets, Fortune, Ida Belle, and Gertie think he must be either a Sinful resident or someone with a close association to the town. 

Playing with emotions for pay is dirty pool, but the game turns deadly when one of the women is murdered. Fortune decides the victim must have figured out who the scam artist is and threatened him with exposure. Deputy Carter LeBlanc is hard at work to find the gunman, but sometimes it takes a woman to expose a lady-killer. Fortunately, Swamp Team 3 is on the job.

    

Fortune is having a hard time dealing with her issues with Carter. And when someone in Fortune is catfishing women, things get crazy for her and her friends. Now, she will do whatever she can to find out what happened, and who is doing all of this. 

I was frustrated with the way Carter treated Fortune in this one, but I enjoyed the rest of the book. It was another good one in a string of good books in this series. 

I thought the story line was very entertaining and interesting, and I look forward to more.

Title: Hurricane Force
Series: Miss Fortune Mystery #7
Author: Jane Deleon
Rating: 

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? 

    

A hurricane is coming to Sinful, and it's bringing with it a crap ton of problems. Fortune is in danger because her past is coming back to haunt her in Sinful. Mean while she's trying to find a murderer, and Carter knows her secret now. 

A storm has hit Sinful, and the fallout may be more than anyone expected. 

This book was awesome! I was so glad Carter finally found out the truth about Fortune, but I was annoyed with how he handled it, and how it turned out. 

Other than that, I was sucked into the story, and Fortune's bad luck. I can't wait to read more now!

Title: Soldiers of Fortune
Series: Miss Fortune Mystery #6
Author: Jane Deleon
Rating: 

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jana DeLeon, the sixth installment in the bestselling Miss Fortune series. 

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. 

    

Celia is the mayor, Carter is on medical leave, and there was an explosion in Sinful. Swamp Team 3 believe that it wasn't the work of a moonshine still, and set out to find out exactly what happened, and who-dun-it. However, this may prove to be more dangerous than anyone could imagine. 

Fortune was awesome in this one just like all the others. She's a wonderful character, and her two side kicks are just as awesome as well. I adored this book, and laughed myself silly throughout most of it. I look forward to more from this series.
