Publisher's Summary

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

When Celia Arceneaux was elected mayor of Sinful, Louisiana, Fortune Redding expected trouble. The woman has an unmatched talent for making the worst of any situation, especially if it means getting revenge on her sworn enemies, Ida Belle and Gertie.

At the Fourth of July celebration, an explosion rocks Sinful, and it's not from fireworks. Most people assume it was a moonshine still, but when evidence points to a meth lab deep in the bayous of Sinful, Fortune realizes how dire the situation is for the tiny town.

With Carter on medical leave and no one left at the sheriff's department who can handle the investigation, Fortune, Ida Belle, and Gertie decide to take matters into their own hands. This is (another) mission for Swamp Team 3.

Not blazing but okay

This isn't one of my favorite in the series, but it's still okay. I do enjoy that themes are always current.

Fun suspense mystery with great narration!

This wonderful Miss Fortune continues with Book 6. It's great humor wrapped around a light suspense mystery.

More of the same

Fun story. Well paced. Well told. Well narrated. Pretty much the same as the same as the prior books. But still fun.

5 Stars and So Funny

So freaking funny!!! Soldiers of Fortune is book 6 in the Miss Fortune Mystery series. This series is set in Sinful, Louisiana, USA and follows Fortune, who is a CIA assassin in hiding, and old ladies Gertie and Ida Belle, who are lifelong Sinful residents and ex-spy war veterans, as they help solve a string of various crimes and murders.

This book and the entire series is full of humor. I stumbled across these books when I decided to check out a new-to-me genre called Cozy Mysteries and someone recommended this series. Once I listened to the first book, I couldn't stop. I have been listening to all of the books back to back.

In Soldiers of Fortune, a meth lab explodes in the bayou. The ladies jump into action to try to solve the case while Carter is supposed to still be on medical leave after someone tried to kill him in the last book. Also, the votes are being recounted for the new town mayor because Celia won the election but someone had stuffed the ballot boxes, but in the meantime, Celia is in control and as expected, she is a nightmare and causing more problems than anything else.

There was a point in this book where I was laughing so hard that I had to keep rewinding so I wouldn't miss anything and finally had to pause it to get myself under control.

I recommend this series and suggest that you read each book in order as it builds upon the prior story and makes everything that much more entertaining and enjoyable. If you like your books with a nice dose of humor, this is the series for you. I have found myself laughing out loud too many times to count.

The narrator does a good job and I really like that it is the same narrator for each of the books.

Great series

Any additional comments?

Great series. Start at book one and go forward. I have been on a Fortune binge - from book one to this one and each one in one sitting. I love these characters, the author and the reader.

MY LEAST FAVORITE OF THE SERIES THUS FAR

I normally run through each book in the Fortune Series, but this one was very slow. It didn't grab my interest until 3/4 way through. The performance was good though.

This is my favorite series of Jana Deleon

I absolutely love this author. I love the sense of humor she puts in all her books. Gertie Is absolutely so funny. Cassandra Campbell absolutely performs these books. Sometimes she confuses the voices but they are all very distinct she is very good at her job. I have listened to a ton of books on an audible but I always listen to these over and over.

One Wild Ride

Loved it, as usual. While Deputy Carter is on med leave, Mayor Celia replaces Sheriff Lee with her no-good cousin Nelson, etc., causing problems & unrest. Swamp Team 3 takes on solving meth explosion with help from Hebert & Co, resulting in some wild, crazy stuff. Dangerous situations but always humorous. It appears that Fortune & Carter are getting serious. Story ends with surprising reappearance of MIA resident. Next book in series should be interesting.
