Rose Gardner collects secrets the way other people collect junk - and now she’s being asked to expose them. Special prosecutor Mason Deveraux has called a grand jury to investigate the corruption in the Sweet Branch police department, and he’s summoned Rose as a witness. Any topic is fair game, and the criminals in Fenton county are rightly scared of what she might share under oath. While trying to placate the lawless men, Rose is also caring for her dying sister, Violet.

Actually the series is like a soap opera ...with characters you will. I love the audibles even though I read the books! I totally recommend this series and specifically this book!

Blair Mason is badass to the bone. She's no stranger to loss and barely survived the mission that ended her military career. Now, as part of Team 52, she never shies away from a fight to ensure pieces of powerful ancient technology don't fall into the wrong hands. Unfortunately, she's often forced to "liaise" with the team's contact at the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police. The tall, hard-bodied detective ignites her temper quicker than any man she's ever known...and after a terrible massacre, she's horrified to find that she and MacKade are being ordered to work together.

Sinful, Louisiana, is always a hotbed of activity, and despite the steamy heat, August is no exception. Godzilla is terrorizing the town, looking for a home-cooked meal, and Gertie is worried someone will take the gator out before she can get him under control. Francine has a situation of her own at the café, where food is missing from inventory. And Celia is always up to no good. But summer is almost over, which could mean huge changes for Fortune Redding.

I love the Miss Fortune series. I read the books and I do the audibles. Miss Campbell does a great job with the women characters. But she makes Carter sound like a hick southern and not a smart Cajun. This has gone on through the series. It is annoying to dine from Lou-siana. And please Lou-siana is named for King Louie not a never existing Queen Louisiana. Simple matters to some I guess...but hopefully Miss Campbell will learn Cajun accents.

A poacher is at work in Sinful, Louisiana, and Deputy Carter LeBlanc is hot on the trail of the outlaw, trying to apprehend him before the state gets wind of the crime and sends a game warden to take over his investigation. Unfortunately, he's hindered every step of the way by Sinful's current mayor and all-around horrible person, Celia Arceneaux, who wants nothing more than to drive Carter to resign. When a game warden turns up with evidence that implicates a relative of Gertie's, Carter is left with no choice but to arrest the boy, even though no one thinks he did it.

Because he always seems to pick the perfect targets, Fortune, Ida Belle, and Gertie think he must be either a Sinful resident or someone with a close association to the town.

I read the books first...now I am listening on audible. The narration is good and you will love Jace as well as his family. Viv brings him down...but it is a fun ride...and you will enjoy getting to know Jace and his family as it grows. There are very steamy parts - to forewarn you.
