The first three books in the New York Times bestselling Miss Fortune series. The set includes:
It was a hell of a long shot…
CIA assassin Fortune Redding is about to undertake her most difficult mission ever—in Sinful, Louisiana. With a leak at the CIA and a price placed on her head by one of the world’s largest arms dealers, Fortune has to go off-grid, but she never expected to be this far out of her element. Posing as a former beauty queen turned librarian in a small bayou town seems worse than death to Fortune, but she’s determined to fly below the radar until her boss finds the leak and puts the arms dealer out of play. Unfortunately, she hasn’t even unpacked a suitcase before her newly inherited dog digs up a human bone in her backyard.
LETHAL BAYOU BEAUTY
No one in Sinful liked Pansy Arceneaux, but who hated her enough to kill her?
When aspiring actress Pansy Arceneaux returns to Sinful, Louisiana to head up the beauty pageant portion of the Summer Festival, CIA assassin Fortune Redding knows she’s in for trouble. Her undercover identity as a former beauty queen makes Fortune the perfect choice to chair the event with Pansy, but Pansy’s abrasive personality makes it impossible to get through a single rehearsal without a fight.
When Pansy turns up dead, Fortune is the prime suspect.
In the two weeks CIA assassin Fortune Redding has been hiding in Sinful, Louisiana, she’s been harassed, poisoned, and shot at…and that was the easy part. But now, she’s about to face her biggest challenge since setting foot in the tiny bayou town.
When mayoral candidate Ted Williams is murdered, everyone is surprised. Ted was a blowhole and a Yankee, but those usually weren’t good reasons to kill someone. When Fortune’s good friend Ida Belle becomes the lead suspect in the crime, Fortune knows she’s got to solve a murder and save one of the only friends she’s ever had. But as the investigation begins, more and more secrets surface, and Fortune realizes that sometimes nothing is as it seems.
Very good read
Miss Fortune Series
Finally an author/ series/heroine who I can laugh at, love and be unable to put the book down in between the latest from Janet Evanovich. I belly laughed so often while thoroughly enjoying these books that my cats have taken to hiding under the bed as I read instead of their usual cuddling. Don't be afraid of diving into these adventures with any fear of becoming bored. Not a chance just sit back and enjoy!
Jana DeLeon writes stories that make me laugh so hard I need a Kleenex. I could easily see the MissFortune tales or the Mudbug stories as a movie or tv series (although they are usually never as good as the books!)
I'm southern, so I can relate to these characters very well. I know people who are a bit like them (my own granny for instance lol) and the whole idea of these old ladies being anything but old ladies is brilliant. I'm off to get the next of the series. Trust me, if you love to laugh, get these stories!
