Publisher's Summary

Just desserts?

It’s November in Sinful, and everyone is gearing up for Thanksgiving. But when Fortune, Ida Belle, and Gertie bag a body on their turkey-hunting trip, the quiet enjoyment of fall is over. No one really knew Miles Broussard well, and as he’d recently sold the building his business was in to retire in another state, no one could explain how he’d ended up murdered and dumped in the bayou.

Ally Lemarque has been waiting her entire life to open her bakery, and that day finally arrived when she purchased the building from Miles. But when she visits the site late at night and interrupts an intruder, she comes away with a crack on her head and concerns about why someone would break into an empty building.

Fortune doesn’t think for a minute that Miles’ murder and the attack on Ally are unrelated. And Swamp Team 3 won’t rest until they’re sure Ally is safe.

Good book, engaging, but where are the black folk in Louisiana?

I’ve read every book in the series so far because it reminds me of New Orleans in Louisiana where I lived. However I keep stumbling over this one huge question, why are there no Black people in the stories? They are the majority of residents of the state of Louisiana and yet they don’t show up. I think their involvement in their presents and his novels would be excellent and add much more scope and richness to the stories.

Jana never disappoints.

I love all of the books in the Miss Fortune series but I absolutely loved the complex storyline of this one. Considering all of what Jana had to deal with in the midst of writing this book (a true fan knows her story), the book was fantastic! This series is my getaway from the stress of every day life. It gives me the chuckles I need to make some days bearable. This is probably one of my favorites of my favorites. I didn’t want it to end.

SO good!

Absolutely the best written series ever and the performance is perfect. This is the 1st book I caught a mispronunciation. Benoit is not Ben-oit. It is Ben-wah in Louisiana. I can’t recommend this enough!!!

Not the Best

I love this series of books, but I felt like this one and the last few have been lacking substance. They’re slow and the characters do a whole lot of talking. The action and the humor was seriously lacking from this one, which is the reason I listen to these! Also, the performer’s voices were very inconsistent.

This series is one of the best.

This has the exact measure of action, drama, mystery, and humor. Keeps me entertained for hours. Wish it were a TV series too.

Sleepy

I love this series but it has gone down hill fast. There used to be lots of funny and exciting things going on but not so much in these last few books.
I'm not sure if I will continue this series.

Amazing!!!

This was amazing from the Gertie mishaps to Fortune’s amazing investigator skills. I love that we are seeing Manny and Ally interacting. I love both characters and think they will do some good for each other. I think Carter and Fortune’s relationship is great. Carter is just giving up trying to get Fortune to follow the rules. I love her bond with everyone. I wish we get to see more Ally and Manny’s future maybe relationship as well as more of The Swamp Team 3 kicking a**. Gertie disasters are always a given. Look forward to more adventure on all fronts. And progression on the relationships as well as friendships. Can’t wait for the next book truly amazing work.

Swamp Sweets

This is another laugh out loud mystery, which has had me chuckling all the way through, and in tears at a few points to. How Cassandra Campbell is able to keep going is beyond me how she was able to keep going. Just brilliant.👍

Another Winner!

Gertie is still managing to be Gertie. That’s all I need to say about that! 😂😂

This is the first time that we see Fortune getting involved with police business with Carter’s blessing. Not because he’s banned from taking action, but because this is personal!

And we have a potentially new romance - I’d like to see how that pans out!

Enjoyable as usual - always wonderfully narrated!
