Love this series!
April 17, 2016
Fortune, Ida Belle, and Gertie are looking into a scam that is bilking lonely old women out of their money. Since this person seems to know exactly who to target in Sinful, Fortune is convinced this con artist is someone local. When a well-respected member of the community is killed, Fortune and the gang are certain there is a connection between the murder and the scam, and they set out to prove it.
Fortune Hunter by Jana DeLeon is a terrific addition to an extremely entertaining series. This is the eighth book in the Miss Fortune Mystery series. Since Carter now knows who she really is, Fortune is able to do what needs to be done without making the usual excuses to him. Fortune finds herself doing a great deal of soul-searching in this book. She doesn’t know what the future holds for her, but she knows she has changed since moving to Sinful. As always, there are laughs to be had (Gertie is such a character!), but there are also some truly touching scenes. I loved the conversation she had with Walter, and when she and Carter were talking, I was holding my breath.
This is one of my favorite series. Ms. DeLeon has created a wonderfully endearing cast of characters. I can’t wait for the next book. I hope summer in Sinful never ends. Happy reading!
