I usually check out the end of the book after a few chapters. Did not do that with this really exciting book. Jana never disappoints with her wonderful imagination. I just wish she didn’t have to sleep or eat so we could have more books. Always something good and am glad she doesn’t see a psychiatrist.
I gave 5 to all 14 books i listened to but this one does not have audio so i cant read Have the audio 14 books and on the 15th book not give me the option for audio very upsetting I'm hoping it will be added if not I'll give the book back
Well, I rated the last book as really bad. Certainly not up to this author's par. Then this one came along and hopes ran high.
Not so much hope any more. Too much talking and not enough action. I keep mentally going back to the first book. Action, action, fantastic action. Laughs by the shovel full. Entertaining.
I guess Jana DeLeon isn't listening to reviews. Just keeps going along the path she feels best suits her. Okay, I guess. Not so okay by me. I have all of her books and have enjoyed all up to the last Fortune one. I have reread all of them at least twice. The Mudbug ones I have reread three times each.
I so look forward to each new book. Disappointment hangs heavy in the air.
I've read the whole series and I normally laugh so much at the ladies antics that I'm often afraid I'll disturb my boyfriend. Unfortunately, this book didn't entertain me as much as the previous books. That said, I'll still read the next one when it comes out.
While Fortune and her partners in crime always result in a good time, this had a slow start to me. It picked up as the story progressed, but I missed the usual action and over the top humor that usually begins from the start. The hilarious actions along with the danger and suspense is what keeps me reading.
This is still the usual antics of our favorite Sinful residents but seems to fall flat. I can't quite put my finger on it, but it's not quite right. Dialog falls flat and the voices of the character are not as they were in previous books. It is still a fun read, just not the best Miss Fortune book.
I really enjoy listening to this series, as Cassandra Campbell does a masterful job at making these characters come alive. However, Cajun Fried Felony fell a bit flat for me. Usually, I can look past the abundant overuse of the word "said" in these books because the story is riveting and entertaining. This time around, I struggled to connect with the mystery.
When Gertie inadvertently unearths a dead body during a Sinful-style turkey run, I was initially intrigued. Who could be buried underneath a playground and not be missed at all by the townsfolk? Well, the reader is introduced to Venus, and the author really hammers home how awful she was and how this young woman basically deserved to die. Like, bludgeons it into the reader throughout the whole book. There wasn't a chapter where someone didn't say that this young woman got what she deserved. And this is where I had a hard time with the story. After all the shady things Venus did, I feel like saying she deserved to die more than one or two times was a bit of an overkill. I understand that in the end, as the murderer (predictable, yet poorly played out) is revealed, Venus's death is supposed to still be justified, but then the story takes an even darker turn and wraps up in a really dark way that I wouldn't normally expect (or want to see) in these books. There was too much done to make all the death that occured in this book "justified" and it just made the whole thing ring of pandering insincerity.
By far my least favorite of the Sinful adventures, but nonetheless I will listen to the next one when it comes out because I really do love this trio of heroines. I only hope their next mystery is worthy of their talents.
Another fun filled trip to Louisiana and the city of Sinful. It's thanksgiving time and everything is as it should be... A body is discovered and soon Swamp team 3 has a new case. Poor Sheriff Carter. Since the first book I read in this series I have had so much fun with every new adventure that Jana DeLeon writes.
