Publisher's Summary

From New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Jana DeLeon, the fifth book in the hilarious Miss Fortune series.

Things are starting to look up for Fortune Redding. Even though her life was at stake, the CIA assassin had balked at taking on a new identity in Sinful, Louisiana. But instead of hating it like she'd thought she would, Fortune now has friends she cares about and just finished up an incredible first date with the sexiest deputy in the state. Sure, there's been a murder or two that she's gotten mixed up in since she arrived in town, but she's hoping all of that is behind her.

But when someone almost kills Deputy Carter LeBlanc, Fortune tosses her dreams of peace and quiet into the muddy bayou and shifts back into being the deadly trained professional that she is. With the help of Ida Belle and Gertie, Fortune launches a manhunt, intending to find a killer before he tries again.

Celebrating Strong Women

Jana Deleon has a real talent for creating strong, confident and fascinating women, unlike the pathetic wimpy girls so popular in recent romantic fiction.

In Gator Bait, the Swamp Team 3 (Fortune, Ida Belle and Gertie) helped deputy Carter investigate the possibility of someone running guns through Sinful, Louisiana. While the plot was well written, it's the town's unique characters and humorous situations which make this series so entertaining.

FYI, these books are light on swearing, sex or graphic violence but heavy on chuckles.

Reminds me of...

This isn't the best review because it's a recommendation for another series: Dead End Jobs by Elaine Viets. I bring this up because if you've made it this far with Fortune then you like the style of mystery and Dead End Jobs is very similar. Anyway, Gator Bait is more of the same for the series. I liked it but it may need some more development on her would-be asssain.

Very good series

Any additional comments?

Good book, but not quite as good as the previous books in the series. I still love the characters as if they were real and the reader is superb.

Excellent series!

Would you consider the audio edition of Gator Bait to be better than the print version?

The narration is incredibly good!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Gator Bait?

The whole book is too good good to just single out an incident.

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

This whole series is narrated by her. She is the perfect narrator.

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

I did, it only took me one day.

Any additional comments?

Superb series and narration.
