Publisher's Summary

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. Her undercover time in Sinful has always been limited to three months, and that time is almost up. With Ahmad still on the loose, Fortune is forced to remain in hiding, but soon she'll have to move to another town and start all over with a new identity. And that's the last thing she wants to do. Determined to get her life back, Fortune decides to draw Ahmad out and end this once and for all. Can Fortune take down one of the most dangerous men in the world? And if she can, does she have a future in Sinful?

Great Series, Hard To Listen To

Have read all of the books in this series and wanted to see if I liked listening to it on Audible before buying the upcoming book in the series. Although I loved having the story read to me, it was very hard to listen to as the Southern Louisiana accents and male voices were horrible as well as the Italian gangster impersonation for the French surnamed Mafia characters, not to mention the incorrect pronunciation of their name Hebert as He-Burt instead of A-Bear. Will be reading instead of listening to the next book. Surely it's okay if you aren't from the region; otherwise, you would probably cringe every time, just as I had, when the garish Southern accent or mispronunciation of Hebert occurred.

Where are the real Louisiana people?

I really like these books, especially the fun and friendship the ladies have. But what I can’t understand is where are the African-American people? If you’re talking about real Louisiana, half the population is African-American. Do none of them live in St. Paul? Is it segregated? I’m not getting it too well. That really needs to be fixed.

Great as usual, but gotta get the names right

Really enjoyed the story as usual but as a Louisiana native I cringed every time the name Hebert was mispronounced!

I love this series! Please continue with more!

I have enjoyed every book of the Fortune series. Fun to listen to! Nothing offensive in language, sex or situations.
Cassandra Campbell is the perfect narrator for these books.

Change of Fortune

As all of Jana's books this one does not disappoint. I love the Shetland humor that she writes with. Another best seller I. My opinion.

I LOVE Jana DeLeon's Miss Fortune mystery series!!

CHANGE OF FORTUNE is Book 11 in the light and fun Miss Fortune Mysteries series by Jana DeLeon. DeLeon is a genius at story telling and character development. Fortune Redding, the protagonist, is a CIA execution agent who is placed anonymously in the small town of Sinful, Louisiana after an arms dealer places a $1 million price on her head. There she meets two senior citizens named Ida Belle and Gertie who were US espionage agents in Vietnam during the war there. Fortune also finds a love interest in Sinful in the person of Sheriffs Deputy Carter LeBlanc who was a US Marine Recon officer earlier in his life. The novels are real suspense mysteries with more than a touch of outrageous humor. Cassandra Campbell's narration is perfect.

Good Story

Having read about Fortune and the folks from Sinful for years, I was excited to read about Fortune confronting the man she was hiding out from in Sinful. The story was great, although with a few eye rolling moments, but I would like to point out something to Ms Campbell, who read the story for Audible. In South Louisiana, the name "Hebert" is pronounced "A - bear" not "He - bert." Sorry to complain, but it was like nails on a chalkboard each time you said it. Otherwise , it was a great story, and I am anxious to hear Fortune's next steps.

more emotional at the end than usual

Ahmad (not sure of spelling) is back. Celia is her usual self, providing laughs. Godzilla is present too being a pet to Gertie, and a usual gator to everyone else. Good laughs, which is one reason I enjoy this series. Ending is different than usual. Won't give it away. Its emotional. Big and Little Hebert are also present, as well as Mannie. I hope this series continues.

More please!!

Really love this series - it’s good, light-hearted, fun and perfect audiobook material!!

This book was maybe not the best in the series, but I did like that it developed her Big & Little relationship and that the conclusion (and title) hints at change ahead... so, I can’t wait to see what happens next!!

Does not disappoint

What made the experience of listening to Change of Fortune the most enjoyable?

Cassandra brings the characters to life so it feels like you are there watching their escapades .

What was one of the most memorable moments of Change of Fortune?

Knowing Fortune is now free to carry on with her life without looking over her shoulder 24/7 in case Ahmad had found her.

Which character – as performed by Cassandra Campbell – was your favourite?

I couldn’t even stop and choose just one character she does them all so well however I do have a soft spot for Gertie 😊

Any additional comments?

I can’t wait for the next book to see where Fortune goes from here.
I just love all Jana’s books 😊
