Gator Bait by Jana DeLeon (Miss Fortune #5)

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jana DeLeon, the fifth book in the hilarious Miss Fortune series.

Things are starting to look up for Fortune Redding. Even though her life was at stake, the CIA assassin had balked at taking on a new identity in Sinful, Louisiana. But instead of hating it like she’d thought she would, Fortune now has friends she cares about and just finished up an incredible first date with the sexiest deputy in the state. Sure, there’s been a murder or two that she’s gotten mixed up in since she arrived in town, but she’s hoping all of that is behind her.

But when someone almost kills Deputy Carter LeBlanc, Fortune tosses her dreams of peace and quiet into the muddy bayou and shifts back into being the deadly trained professional that she is. With the help of Ida Belle and Gertie, Fortune launches a manhunt, intending to find a killer before he tries again.

My review: Gator Bait by Jana DeLeon (Miss Fortune #5)


I should rate it 5 Depends. I laughed so hard reading this story many times. Just on the silly, trouble that Gertie gets into makes this book. The book is full of laughter, action, and drama.
One of the scenes I laughed the hardest was when Fortune is breaking into the deputy's house with his pit bull in the backyard named Tiny. Feds were in a car waiting for Sheriff with warrant. When Fortune is trying to sneak out. Tiny gets loose and chases her than chases Gertie, Sheriff, mule collides. Mule with Sheriff ends up on top of Feds. car and Tiny trapping them all. Gertie lost part of homecoming dress from decades ago and she is showing her camo underwear. Just picturing scene makes me laugh again.

Fortune is a CIA Assassin hiding out in small town of Sinful, Louisiana. She is pretending to be a beauty queen librarian. Which is her opposite. I really like Fortune

There are a lot of characters in this book that you don't expect to run into. Like Gertie and Ida Two seniors who have mad skills they hide. Fortune is making friends and enemies in this town.

I really want to read more Miss Fortune stories. I also want to see her tell Deputy Carter the truth about her.

I will read more from Jana Deleon in the future. I hope she writes faster. I don't want to wait till next spring for next adventure.
