Venus Thibodeaux had a reputation for being trouble. Some said she started at birth. When she finally left Sinful shortly after turning eighteen, everyone breathed a sigh of relief. When she blew back into town four years later, no one was happy about her return. She immediately launched into her same old scams, picking off Sinful residents with ease before disappearing again as quickly as she’d appeared.
Everyone assumed she’d headed back to New Orleans.
But when an accident at the annual Thanksgiving Turkey Run uncovers her body, everyone Venus took for a ride becomes a suspect. The man at the top of that list sees the writing on the wall and hires Fortune to figure out who killed Venus, before he goes to prison for a murder he didn’t commit. Fortune, Ida Belle, and Gertie start poking around into Venus’s complicated life, hoping to find the killer. And to solve their first official case.

I wish I could read A new miss fortune book every week, unfortunately I guess I’ve read them too fast they are so good and this was no exception. Can’t wait to read the next one.
I love the Fortune Redding series! They are all well written and I hate putting the book down to go to bed! The books deserve more than five stars they deserve ten stars!
In this latest story the three ladies are at it again. Fortune has her first case and you know that Ida Belle and Gertie will be there helping to solve the mystery. Mustang has hired Fortune to prove he did not kill Venus. Now there are sub stories involved and plot twists. Ida Belle is going to make a very important decision. Read about the turkey race/capture. It is funny but there is a surprise involved. I must admit that Gertie has outdone herself with clothes and the parrot! He is very humorous as if the three together do not add lots of humor, lol!
I like the openness between Carter and Fortune.,read this awesome book and be ready for lots of interesting things happening!
