Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Jana DeLeon, the eighth book in the Miss Fortune mystery series.

Someone has created a fake social media identity and is online romancing the lonely women of Sinful in order to scam them out of money. 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.

Playing with emotions for pay is dirty pool, but the game turns deadly when one of the women is murdered. Fortune decides the victim must have figured out who the scam artist is and threatened him with exposure. Deputy Carter LeBlanc is hard at work to find the gunman, but sometimes it takes a woman to expose a lady-killer. Fortunately, Swamp Team 3 is on the job.

Catfishing on the Internet!

This use of catfishing come from the 2010 movie Catfish. Fortune, Ida Belle and Gertie continue their successful efforts to solve crimes in the small town of Sinful, Louisiana. They continue to irritate Deputy Carter LeBlanc. After finding out about Fortune's CIA job and exploits in the prior novel in the Miss Fortune Mysteries series, even the hint of romance is gone. Fortune Hunter has one of the more creative plots in the series. Cassandra Campbell's narration is excellent as always.

Fun Book

This book is a GREAT ADDITION to the series. In my humble opinion, this book is like a potato chip; you can't eat just one. The whole series is great entertainment.

Love the Fortune series, more original storyline

Can't wait for the next installment from Sinful. I've followed Deleon for about a year. Her bayou stuff is always fun though very repetitive. This had a much more original story line and kept my interest going.

As for the Performance. Not enough separation in the male voices and Carter's voice just didn't fit him so I gave 4 stars on the performance. Good but not great.

First time I've used the whisper sync. Worked really well. I accidentally left the book running on audible so it showed as finished. I just deleted from my iPhone, reopened my kindle and told it not to sync with the location on my device. When I redownloaded to my device, it synced again with my kindle in the correct location. Awesome!! That is a great feature.

A cute story!

I've read all this series and some are better than others. This is a good story. That being said, I had the bad guy figured out pretty early on. Fortune needs to get her life fixed, the bad guys caught and move full time to Louisiana. It seems like she's found her family there.

I wanted to take off a star...

I realized that the only thing I really didn't like about this story was that it ended and I don't know when the next one will arrive. I couldn't penalize the book for being too entertaining, could I?

Brought back my interest

The last couple of books in this series slowed my interest, but I'm glad I kept with it. I liked that Fortune is past pretending and that we get to see more of who she really is. I have to say I wish the chapters had titles because each one could have a funny name.

Wow!

The duo does it again. Jana DeLeon has written another great addition to the Miss Fortune series, and Cassandra Campbell once again has brought all the characters to life. I highly recommend this book to any Fortune fans. If you're a fan of cozy mysteries, I highly recommend you start at the beginning of this series, one last thought, Ms Deleon please hurry and write the next book!

The narrator ges top marks for this whole well written series.

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoyed listening to this book from beginning to end, which I almost did in one day. I highly recommend this cozy series.

Have you listened to any of Cassandra Campbell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

The narrator is very skilled at making all the characters come alive.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It only took me one afternoon and the following morning to hear this book as it was so good I didn't want to press pause!

Any additional comments?

Please keep them coming Jana Deleon and thanks for choosing such a good narrator.
