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.

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.

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.

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?

More of the same

Very much like the previous books. Fun and engaging. Well worth the price of admission.

Very diffferent from the previous boos

This book isn’t laugh out loud funny like the other books. It’s like it has a different author!! I didn’t enjoy it at all, I didn’t give it a lower star count because at least it had the same characters.

Fun but predictable

This one is as fun as the rest of the series, but it was easy to see where it was going. I do wish the author would stop with the word “clenched”. It’s used enough that my body reacts. That’s just me being picky, though.

Just an enjoyable read, with a few good laughs

Look this series is just a good enjoyable read, with a few good laughs along the way. They are an enjoyable book to pass the time and miles.

Not the best

I admit to having become hooked on this series, but I think this book had issues. Primarily, how did the ladies, who have shown themselves to be remarkably astute and intuitive, not see the bad guy for so long??! Or perhaps the bad guy was just written too obviously. Anyway...still good, but not the best.

This one was just okay but still worth 4 stars...

I love this series, but this particular book was not my favorite. I found myself bored and my mind trailing off to other things while it was playing. I figured out "whodunit" very early on (as I usually do), so there was no suspense for me. That said, you can't help but love Ida Bell, Gertie and Fortune, and the shenanigans that they pull off. I still rated it 4 out of 5 stars overall. Great narration, as always.
