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.

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.

She's done it again!

What did you love best about Later Gator?

Everything! It was a good story plot, something unique to the bayou but not obvious to someone like me whose not familiar with swamps. I haven't listened to a Jana Deleon novel in a while so as the fun crazy, zany and characters I'd come to love are back and better than ever!

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes the plot kept me on the edge. Although I am from Louisiana and lived in southwestern La, for sometime, I never lived or worked near a bayou. It was good story telling that led up to another mess going on in Sinful La. I enjoyed the suspense. I was working at my desk at work and managed to pay attention from start to finish. Some books I get lost in because I lose interest. Jana Deleon didn't disappoint. That's why I keep coming back!

What about Cassandra Campbell’s performance did you like?

Everything! She's the best. Her different voices are dead on unique and distinct. She's a talented narrator. Her talent makes me want to believe that there is more than one person voicing each character. Superb talent!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I found myself laughing more for this story. Almost made me miss Helena and gang. The laughter wasn't gust busting funny but a few instances warranted a good laugh. I needed that while working at my desk.

Any additional comments?

Jana Deleon, you are a talented story teller! Keep up the good work! Great series!!! Looking forward to more!

Oh Gertie

If you've made it this far into Miss Fortune Mysteries, you know how amazing and exasperating Gertie can be but this adventure just takes the cake though. Funny, sweet, and action packed as only Sinful can be - I absolutely devoured this book and I know I'll reread them again one day.

This includes a visit to the swamp bar, more sinful secrets, car cashes and some one ends up in the water.... but that could be almost any of these zany stories.

Crazy antics of the Sinful ladies!

What do I want to be when I leave the CIA? Our three zany ladies are trying to see who is poaching the alligators. It is their test trial to determine if Fortune wants to become a PI. Since crime has grown exponentially since she arrived, she kind of owes it to the town to stay.

Gertie is still the most hilarious character in the story. She domesticates an alligator and speared Fortune in her breast with a dart.

Since Fortune is making plans to stay, her and Carter’s romance is beginning to steam up. I want to give DeLeon kudos. In many of these stories a romance is started and consummated within the first book. Taking it slow added to the tension to the activities of the ladies. He is now passively supportive of their antics but still must impose the law.

I miss the spats between the Sinful ladies and the Catholic ladies and their Sunday races to get to the restaurant for the pie.

Enjoy the boat chase, the car chase and classic cover up scene where the ladies try to cover their night excursions from Carter.

We know that Fortune has the physical skills for PI works. But can she put the clues together?

More, more, more, I want more.

More, more, more, I want more. Unfortunately, I already read/listened to the next in the series. I didn’t see this installment before I started to the next. I like to read books in the order they were intended to be read/listened to. I’m a big fan of this series and always look for the next to be released.
