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.
My review: Soldiers of Fortune (A Miss Fortune Mystery Book 6) by Jana Deleon
I have so much fun reading this series. I liked Soldiers of Fortune. I laughed so hard at some of these situation that they get into. So much drama, action and mystery. It is also a clean read.
The characters are such a wide range of characters. Fortune is the main character. She is a CIA Assassin hiding in the small town of Sinful, Louisiana. As a yankee who inherited her Aunts house.
She is hiding because a gun runner put a contract out on her and a mole in the CIA gave them her real name.
Ida Belle and Gertie are not your average senior citizens. They were spies during Vietnam War. They still have lots of skills and try to solve the town problems. They are the only ones who know what and who Fortune is.
There is a new Mayor in town. She has fired the sheriff and put her own relative in town that no one likes or trusts. Carter is still out on sick leave. A bomb goes off in the swamp most people think it was a still that exploded. But really a meth lab. No one is investigating. So the three of them start to investigate on the side.
If you like good snappy dialog and funny situations with strong characters pick up A Miss Fortune Mystery.
I so want Carter to find out the truth but don't know how things will work out for them
I bought this book from Amazon.
