I have become a huge fan of Jana DeLeon's series of Fortune Redding's adventures in the Miss Fortune series. The series starts with Louisiana Longshot, where Fortune Redding, a CIA assassin, has been placed to protect her from a contract on her life by an evil arms dealer. The characters in this series are so alive and real that you feel as if you met them somewhere, you would recognize them instantly. The books are true page-turners. More times than i want to confess, I've been reading one late into the night and early into the morning because I couldn't put it down. A wonderful part of this series is that it truly is a series. Over the course of these books, Fortune has grown and changed - it's been great to see her evolution from being a CIA assassin into becoming a citizen of Sinful, Louisiana, while still retaining all the characteristics that make her so amazing. Her antics with Ida Belle and Gertie are scary sometimes, suspenseful sometimes, and sometimes they go sideways so badly yet in a way so cleverly written that I am sideways in my chair because I am laughing so hard. Trying to avoid spoilers, I'll just say this book is the one where she confronts the evil arms dealer who has taken out a contract on her life. So if you are looking for a great series to read, I recommend this one!
I read the first book in the series for free on my Kindle, and I fell in love with it. I immediately bought the whole series, and have loved them all. Some of the comedy in the books had me laughing so hard that it brought tears to my eyes. It is entertaining, has three strong women as the leads, and it encompasses the old, as well as the young. I would highly recommend this series, and can't wait for the next book to come out.
After reading the first in the series, 'Louisiana Longshot' I was hooked. Shared the book with my mother and she loved it just as much. I immediately had to purchase a copy of every book in this series. 'Change of Fortune' was just as amazing as the rest of the series. I couldn't put it down. I already can't wait for the next installment! Nobody can write like Jana DeLeon! I highly recommend!
Godzilla is back wreaking havoc in Sinful (and upon Celia), Francine's has a food thief, and the much anticipated showdown with Ahmad has arrived! Exciting book with all the laughs, friendships and chaos I love so much from this series. Looking forward to what a future in Sinful holds for Fortune and gang.
Change is another delightful book in the Miss Fortune series by Jana Deleon. I laugh out loud at the antics of the ladies in these stories. I had not even gotten through the first eleven pages before I was laughing until I had tears running down my cheeks. Ntotally wonderful book! If you have not read a Miss Fortune book you are missing out. Start with Louisiana Longshot. You will not be disappointed!
Jana DeLeon is officially my new favorite author. I have read all her books and can't wait for the next one. Loved Change of Fortune just as much as I have loved all her books. She really knows how to entertain a reader.
