This is a phenomenal series each adventure of Fortune, Gertie and Ida Belle better than the last! Fortune is tired of hiding out from a vindictive arms dealer whose brother she killed and has made it his mission to kill her. She wants her life back so she doesn't have to keep looking over her shoulder. While a CIA assassin, she had stored her empathy and feelings away so they wouldn't get in the way of any of her missions. But now, living in Sinful, Louisiana and opening herself up to the friendship and caring of Gertie, Ida Belle, Ally and of course Carter who she has very strong feelings for and she doesn't want to turn back! She wants to end her CIA career and remain in Sinful, but as long as Ahmed is after her, she can't. So... she decides to become bait to flush him out with the help of her CIA handlers, Carter, her Mob friends, Big, Little and Manny and of course Gertie and Ida Belle. She knows it may mean her life, but she is tired of living the way she has been and wants to take her life back! Also we have two side themes running along with the main theme. Godzilla, the huge alligator that Gertie has been feeding is now terrorizing the town and must be caught and moved before Celia, the troublemaker, tries to kill him. Also, who has been stealing food from Francine's cafe? A job for the Sinful ladies to solve since they want to maybe start a PI business if Fortune can and decides to stay in Sinful. With lots of laughs, especially at the expense of Celia the former mayor who hates the ladies and Fortune especially and always want them arrested and with Fortune's so called "eccentric" code word for crazy next door neighbor you just have to laugh out loud. I found myself doing that a lot in this book as well as turning the pages and not putting the book down once I started it! I can't wait to find out what is next for Fortune and company since no one else in the town really had any idea who she really was. What could possibly happen next? There was a hint that the ladies may go on a vacation...hmmmm and of course you have Celia who still wants to get Fortune out of town and the ladies arrested. So much more fun awaits and I can't wait for the next book in this MUST read series.
