Publisher's Summary

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. With Carter under the watchful eye of Celia and the state, Fortune, Ida Belle, and Gertie decide to catch a poacher...before he gets away.

Author Jana DeLeon is a treasure!

I've listened to all five novels in Jana DeLeon's Shaye Archer dark psychological thriller series and nine of ten novels in the Miss Fortune humorous mystery/thriller series and all have been perfect. Like the other books in the Miss Fortune series Later Gator is set in Sinful, Louisiana and features CIA Assassin Fortune, senior citizens Ida Belle and Gertie who were US intelligence agents during the Vietnam War, and Deputy Carter LeBlanc who is Fortune's love interest. The most recent books also feature Sinful's evil Mayor Celia Arceneaux. There is real suspense, lots of plot twists, and LOL humor. Now that Carter knows about Fortune's CIA job and she has decided to leave it, their mild on-again and off-again romance is beginning to heat up. Ida Belle loves fast cars, motorcycles, and boats. She bought a customized 600 horse power SUV and she loves driving Fortune's air boat. Gertie is really not all there mentally, but that does not keep her from throwing out wild ideas as she carries around her arsenal in her huge handbag. The three ladies constantly get in Carter's way as he investigates crimes, but they usually end up being helpful.

These Miss Fortune novels provide a delightful break from the heavier mysteries I listen to. Cassandra Campbell narrates the entire series wonderfully. I love this series and recommend it.

Where are all the Black folk?

I like the fun & the food & geography, but the setting for this book is not Louisiana! Ev everyone is white! Louisiana is over half African-American and that is part of their great culture and history and everything that’s good about it. Why is that left out of this book, this series of books? It is a gross miscarriage of the truth. It’s it’s a bad reflection on the writing. And seems to smack of it only being about white folks. That is not Louisiana.

Always a fun listen!

The Miss Fortune Mysteries are my favorite. Parts are laugh out loud funny. As narrator, Cassandra Campbell brings out each character's personality.

Each book is like hanging out with friends.

All is right with the world

This book like the ones before it is comical and entertaining with lots of twist and turns. I love that Ida May and Gertie always have Fortune's back and don't mind getting their hands dirty. I like that Carter has finally come around and is willing to give Fortune a chance. I can't wait to see what happens next.

Wonderful Story

Love this series!!!! Only thing about this audible is the voices for Ida Bell and Gertie sometimes got confused. But that did not detract from the fun happening in Sinful❤️❤️❤️

Always amusing

The stories become a little predictable but I still like the “sinful ladies”. I enjoy the characters and they do give me a chuckle.

Walking the Gator like a dog...

That's about all you need to know about this book. If you're a fan of the Miss Fortune series, you will know exactly was doing that! So I need tell you no more, because you won't believe me anyway!

Hurry up! Buy it! Enjoy!

Not as good a listen as other books in the series

Did not enjoy this book. Lots of flat areas in the plot . Narration was not as lively to listen to as previous episodes in the series. Got to the last chapter and had lost all interest. Have always enjoyed reading as well as listening to this series., but had no interest in listening to the end.
Hopefully the next books will have a livelier plot ands narrative will be
Not as flat.

Tears in my eyes

The Godzilla chase scene at Gerties was so funny I had tears in my eyes.
