Undercover Fortune Redding has been in Sinful Louisiana dodging insults, and making up advice with the very handsome Deputy Carter LeBlanc for the last three weeks while she is hiding from a terrorist who wants her dead. When her friend Ally's house is set on fire she decides to go back into CIA mode and find out who is trying to harm her. Carter warns Fortune that he will arrest her this time if he catches her. Fortune promise but Ida Belle and Gertie didn't so they decide to start investigating pulling Fortune along for the ride.
If anyone started this series or jumped in midships with this series you will feel a little lost. The Miss Fortune series is very silly- written that way on purpose. A reader can take a few minutes out of their day to laugh and giggle themselves silly after a stress filled day. The mystery is always fun and never once do you take it seriously and if you do I feel bad because you missed the point to just have fun.
The Fortune Series is so funny with sharp writing and lots of wit - however this book has seemed to just fall into a rut and stay with the same theme not pushing the plot or storyline forward. I was kind of hoping either the terrorist would show up or the relationship with Carter would change but everything pretty much stayed the same as the last three books.
This story is like the others it isn't to hard to figure out the mystery and why but the humor is why you read it.
I was disappointed with missed spelled words that I easily caught and would take me out of the story. After a while I found myself turning the pages fast to see if the story moved along but nothing changed.
Thanks Heidi for this review.
Synopsis: From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jana DeLeon, a new installment in her bestselling Miss Fortune series.
What's a little arson between friends?
Undercover CIA agent Fortune Redding spent her first three weeks in Sinful, Louisiana dodging insults, makeup advice, guard dogs, bullets, and Deputy Carter LeBlanc, both professionally and personally. But just when she thinks things are going to settle down in the small bayou town, someone sets her friend Ally's house on fire.
Carter, who'd just started pursuing Fortune on a personal basis, goes back into cop mode and admonishes her to stay out of his investigation. This time, he swears he won't issue any warning before arresting her. But with her friend's safety hanging in the balance, Fortune can't resist taking matters into her own hands and calls on her partners in crime fighting, Ida Belle and Gertie, to help.
This is a mission for Swamp Team 3.

Jana and her brother spent thousands of hours combing the bayous in a flat-bottom aluminum boat, studying the natural habitat of many birds, nutria and alligators. She would like you to know that no animals were injured during these "studies," but they kept makers of peroxide in business.
Jana has never stumbled across a mystery or a ghost like her heroines, but she's still hopeful.
She now resides in Dallas, Texas, with the most spoiled Sheltie in the world.
