    One of my favorite series! I can't get enough of Fortune, Ida Belle, and Gertie. Every one of their missions have me in stitches. My only wish is that I wouldn't finish them as quick!

    The seventh addition to the Miss Fortune Mystery series by Jana Deleon. A hurricane is coming and Fortune and the gang all retreat to safety at a local church. Afterwards, phony money is found and Fortune believes it is tied to the arms dealer that wants her dead. Has he finally located her? Oh, and did I mention the dead body? I ain't telling.

Another humorous story involving CIA Fortune Redding and the Geritol Mafia, Ida Belle and Gertie, along with our clueless Deputy Carter LeBlanc. I was a little disappointed in the ending but hopefully the next book will end differently. First off, I am aware that real CIA agents would not behave anything like Fortune but it's a fun read, filled with loads of laughs. Just don't take it seriously!

    I love this series, it seems that I start every review of books in the series that way, but it is so true. Every book is great. Action, humor and mystery. A perfect read for me and this one was no different. Please start at the beginning and read in order because these books take place one right after the other. Fortune Redding, a CIA assassin in hiding in Sinful, LA, just can't stay under the radar no matter how hard she tries.

Fortune Redding, a CIA assassin in hiding in Sinful, LA, just can't stay under the radar no matter how hard she tries. Now we have a hurricane blowing through Sinful and in its' wake there is a windfall of counterfeit money and a dead body, of course. Things get dicey for Fortune when the money traces back to Ahmad, the terrorist arms dealer who had a hefty bounty on Fortune's head. Then his men are spotted in New Orleans, way to close the Fortune in Sinful, but Swamp Team 3 is on the track of the counterfeiter and, well, things get serious, but hilarious for the girls in New Orleans. Unfortunately, things get real, real back in Sinful and Deputy Carter learns Fortunes true identity. She has some serious decisions to make and what happens to her relationship now that Carter knows her secret is left for another book.

    Definitely Packs a Hurricane Force!! Hurricane Force is hands down the best so far of the entire Miss Fortune series!! Too bad I can't give it 20 stars. While the humor is certainly there, this time there is more life & death action than ever before. It's one roller coaster ride after another. Just as you catch your breath Ms DeLeon twists you up & over again. This is absolutely a must read!!!! Definitely Packs a Hurricane Force!!

    Hurricane Force by Jana Deleon is the 7th book in the Miss Fortune Mystery series. After a hurricane passes through Sinful, counterfeit money is found in the street with ties to the arms dealer Ahmad whom Fortune Redding is trying to avoid. I love this series and especially all the characters. There are a lot of unbelievable and funny moments which have you laughing out loud. Very entertaining and leaves you wanting more.

    It doesn't get any crazier than Sinful Louisiana with two Vietnam era operatives and a hiding CIA agent. They are in constant trouble with the town's deputy and their great crime fighting plans always come with a hitch. It is laugh out loud fun.

    This book was a perfect mix of funny, sad, and action packed. Hurricane Force is book 7 in the Miss Fortune Mystery series. This series is set in Sinful, Louisiana, USA and follows Fortune, who is a CIA assassin in hiding, and old ladies Gertie and Ida Belle, who are lifelong Sinful residents and ex-spy war veterans, as they help solve a string of various crimes and murders.

Hurricane Force is book 7 in the Miss Fortune Mystery series. This series is set in Sinful, Louisiana, USA and follows Fortune, who is a CIA assassin in hiding, and old ladies Gertie and Ida Belle, who are lifelong Sinful residents and ex-spy war veterans, as they help solve a string of various crimes and murders. This book and the entire series is full of humor. I stumbled across these books when I decided to check out a new-to-me genre called Cozy Mysteries and someone recommended this series. Once I listened to the first book, I couldn't stop. I have been listening to all of the books back to back. In Hurricane Force, a hurricane stirs up a whole lot of counterfeit $100 bills. Plus there is a murder to solve, Ahmad the arms dealer is closer than ever to finding Fortune, and Carter finally learns the truth about Fortune. Of course, the ladies jump into action to try to solve the case. The votes are still being recounted for the new town mayor because Celia won the election but someone had stuffed the ballot boxes, and of course, Celia is in control and making a mess of things while spreading her hate and negativity. This book was different from the others in that there was a real emotional side to the story as Carter learned that Fortune is really a CIA assassin. I absolutely loved that we got more of the romance and heartaches that come with learning someone you care deeply for has been lying to you. I recommend this series and suggest that you read each book in order as it builds upon the prior story and makes everything that much more entertaining and enjoyable. If you like your books with a nice dose of humor, this is the series for you. I have found myself laughing out loud too many times to count. The same woman narrates all of the books in this series. She does a really good job.

    Just.Can't.Stop reading this series! I have been dying for Fortune to come clean about her role as a CIA agent to Carter. OMG there has been a build up of feelings between Fortune and Carter and I never thought that he would react as he did. So sad!! I really expected things to be different BUT I am hopeful that there can be a turn around. I really want things to work for these characters.

Due to a counterfeiting scandal Fortune has been put squarely into a situation that has brought Ahmad himself to Louisiana. Desperate to finally take down the man that has been the bane of her existence, Fortune and the girls are going to get in deeper than ever. The only question now is what will Fortune do with her life if the death threat from Ahmad is lifted. This installment is a real game changer in the series and I can't help but be surprised by how things shake out.

    This is the 7th book in the series, and each book keeps getting better and better. In this book we saw some Sinful shenanigans, but the main thrust was dealing with Fortune's personal agenda, and shockingly telling Carter secrets about Fortune, Gertie, and Ida Belle. I didn't like the ending, but I am hoping Ms DeLeon finds a way to fix that in the next book. I do hope there are many more books about Sinful and the amazing people who live there!

The pace of the book is non-stop exciting, and between wondering how they did something and laughing too hard at what they did, it is almost impossible to put down. I recommend you start at book one (often offered for free!) and laugh your way through the series. Take a look at the Sinful Ladie's website to kick start your fun.

It's funny, it's got action, there is some mystery and the characters are so well created that you just like them. I would recommend this to everyone, especially those who like to laugh-out-loud.

    Oops, we’ve hit a snag Don’t get me wrong, I am having so much fun binging this series, but I was hoping for a different outcome when Carter finally learned the truth. Yep, Fortune’s secret is out, at least with Carter, and while I understand where he’s coming from, it broke my heart a little too. Hoping things get back on track for Book 8, as it looks like the Sinful Ladies Society’s archenemies, Celia, is up to no good. Ended sadly, but still 4 stars

The morning that this book opens, Max shows up in the diner, prompting Allie, Fortune's friend staying with her temporarily and the niece of Celia, to call Fortune, who immediately picks up her partners in crime, Ida Belle and Gertie, and races to the diner. They arrive just in time to watch the fight between Max and Celia, in which Max announces to the whole world that Celia's daughter, Pansy, is not his daughter. Stalking out of the diner, Celia goes straight to the general store and buys shotgun shells. So when Max turns up dead in Celia's kitchen of two shotgun blasts and Celia turns on Fortune, her favorite "Yankee" target, Fortune responds by accusing the town bitch of committing the murder herself, leading to Celia's running away to hide.

    Of all of the Miss Fortune storylines, "Hurricane Force" is the most fast paced, intense and emotionally jarring. Without revealing any spoilers the ending broke my heart but also made me realize that one of the characters is not as strong and worthy of my original admiration as I thought.

Without revealing any spoilers the ending broke my heart but also made me realize that one of the characters is not as strong and worthy of my original admiration as I thought. Over the short period of time that Fortune has been in Sinful, Louisiana trouble hasn't been a stranger. So, when Max Arceneaux , Celia's long lost husband comes back to town, everyone is curious as to what is going on. However, Max reveals the reason he never returned to Sinful for Pansy's funeral and everyone is shocked. Before more secrets are revealed, a hurricane is coming to town. The residents of Sinful buckle down and as they make it to the church, Fortune, Bertie, Ida Belle and Carter stumble upon a cache of hundred dollar bills in a car. They try to secure it until the storm subsides but when the citizens go outside the money is scattered everywhere. Of course, it's now Christmas in Sinful. Meanwhile, Fortune is in contact with her CIA partner, Harrison. Ahmad, the arms dealer who is gunning for Fortune is getting close and believed to be In NOLA (New Orleans). His organization is responsible for the circulation of counterfeit hundreds. Uh Oh, Fortune is really in trouble now and she is afraid that her mere presence in Sinful has put the very people she has grown to love and respect at risk. It just maybe the time to reveal her identity to those who are closest to her and what will they think when they know the truth? Things have finally come to a head and Fortune will have to make the hardest decisions of her life. I know some reviewers downgraded their ratings on this book due to the ending but although it was not the one I was hoping for it certainly was one hell of a cliffhanger and will definitely provide for more drama to come in the next installments. I just can't wait for the release of book 8 because I've truly grown quite fond of this series and you will too if you give it a chance.

    Best one yet The hijinks continue as Fortune tries to maintain her cover. It isn't easy, not with Ahmed close by in New Orleans. The humor is delightful. My neighbors have probably called the men in the little white coats on me because I was laughing so loud and so hard at one scene. Not to spoil anything, I'll just say it involves Gertie, a coffin, and hot dogs. Sound intriguing? It is. Each book gets stronger, and this is the best yet. I want these characters as friends.
