Publisher's Summary

It’s not a vacation until there’s a murder.  

Fortune, Ida Belle, and Gertie are finally off to Florida on the vacation they’ve always talked about. Days filled with white sand, turquoise water, and fruity drinks are the only thing on the agenda. But when Gertie’s “hot date” turns up dead and she’s the number one suspect, they’re forced to hang up their bathing suits and shift to investigating mode.  

They soon discover that Gertie’s beau was up to all kinds of shady behavior, leaving them with a long list of people who are happy he’s dead. But which one resorted to murder?

like the story

I enjoy this series, but it seems that Ida Belle and Gertie bicker more and more and it is distracting from the story like. in the first books it seemed as if they were friends. It now seems like they have nothing good to say about the other. i hope they get back to being friends.

Fun

Fortune, Ida Belle, and Gertie go to a resort on an island in Florida. Leave it to Gertie to liven their vacation up. Fun, mindless fun. Good to have these mysteries for a little diversion.

Another fun ride

The girls are becoming a bit predictable but still lovable. Once I start listening I can't put it down. Nice quick listen that is just fun.
I have no doubt I'll keep going on this entertaining series.

Well written, good mystery

I enjoy this series. This installment was not quite as good as the rest, where laugh out loud hilarity rules, but the mystery was better. Start at the beginning of the series and read through them in order.

Fortune, Ida Belle and Gertie in Florida

Author Jana DeLeon continues her wonderful Miss Fortune series with Fortune and her two geriatric buddies vacationing at a beach in Florida. Book 14 in this marvelous mystery/thriller series continues the great fun of the prior 13 novels. The Miss Fortune Adventures series started great and has continued the same way in each novel. Cassandra Campbell narrates the entire series perfectly. Very highly recommended!!

Ho hum

I have loved all the books so far but this one just didn’t hit the mark. I still plan on getting the next though. The narration was very good.

Excellent summertime read!

It's hard to find a good fun read that doesn't have a bunch of romance in it. Funny and enjoyable with some "who done it"wrapped in. I'm not quite sure why Ida Bell has to always be so negative and mean to Gertie....they are best friends, aren't they... But I love Gertie's lust for life & excitement.

Same plot new town -still funny

Who knew that you can go on vacation and still become involved with a murder case? Well it happened to Fortune, Ida Belle, and Gertie. Gertie’s date turned into a hot mess when the guy turned up dead. Gertie has an opportunity to go without her panties and wear her risqué attire. I always find it amusing that Gertie has a youthful attitude and is more liberal than Fortune. I would have loved for her to be my grandmother. Fortune had to come out of her clothing comfort zone to help with the investigation.

It is ingenious how the ladies get around in a new town and can conduct their investigation. The same plot dynamics are in play here; stealing stuff, finding a way to look at confidential information in the Sheriff's office, Ida Bell going crazy with a fast boat, and Shark bar, which is like the Swamp bar. Sheriff Benton is an annoying megalomaniac just like Celia. The girls run circles around him to hinder his gross incompetent investigation. They even get a look at his underwear. The only difference with this story is Carter is only available by phone. I miss some of the regular Sinful town folk. Basically, you get the same story only it happens in Florida.

Stop being mean to Gerty!!

Love this series, but the endless making fun of Gerty is starting to come over as just plain mean. It’s meant to be amusing, but it goes on and on! For it to be good comic banter we all need to see flashes of real concern/ friendship/love to make the banter comic. It’s missing that.

Otherwise, I enjoyed it... more of a who-dunnit than usual and I liked the change of location/characters to spice it up!
