Publisher's Summary

Til death do us part?

Ida Belle, Fortune, and Gertie are gearing up for the big day - Ida Belle’s wedding to Walter - but when the caterer goes missing just a week before the big day, it puts a huge black mark on the joyous celebration. Molly Broussard is no stranger to being in the limelight, so when the former cage fighter turned in her boxing gloves for pots and pans, everyone who knew her was surprised...until they ate her food.

From all appearances, Molly took her boat out that day and simply never returned. An extensive search of the bayous finally produces the boat, but there is no sign of Molly. With no evidence of foul play, Sinful residents are ready to conclude that this is simply another tragic and all-too-common accident.

Nickel Bordelon spent half of his time in trouble and the other half paying for it. But one thing he knows for certain - Molly was murdered. When he asks Fortune to take the case, she isn’t sure there’s anything to find, but his emotional plea has her agreeing to look into it. As Swamp Team 3 begin their investigation, they find more layers to Molly’s disappearance than in Ida Belle’s wedding cake.

Always a pleasure.

This is a fairly fast paced story full of the usual shenanigans that Fortune, Ida Belle and Gertie find themselves in. Love this story, and can’t wait for the next book.

Gators & Garters

If you want to read a light, fun book, the Miss Fortune books are what you’re looking for. I’d suggest starting at the beginning of the series because it builds the characters that appear in each book. I was laughing out loud in places in this one ... and in all of them now that I think about it. They’re just fun!

Loved it

Jana DeLeon has done it again. This was a storyline that kept me laughing the entire book until the closing credits. Cassandra Campbell gave a stellar performance as she brought it all to life. I highly recommend this book/audiobook to cozy mystery fans.

a fun listen as always

even though I figured out the plot twist pretty early into the story, I was entertained throughout the book. there are some parts you just have to laugh out loud. I was listening to this while I was having lunch at a cafe and it was really hard to keep myself from laughing. I am sure the wait staff was creeped out by my smile..... you can read this on his own but why limit yourself to just one. I highly recommend the whole series.

Real enjoyable

Yes I have now read every book in the series and she just keeps getting better and better I really did not know who did it. And the ending was very unexpected but pleasant.... I still say one of my favorite members of the story is Godzilla . He knows how to really knows how to Liven up a party.

I LOVE THIS SERIES

Jana DeLeon please don’t ever stop writing this series and Cassandra Campbell please don’t ever stop narrating the series.

This is my favorite series out of all the audio books I own. And Im coming up on about two thousand audio books now.
This series is laugh out loud funny yet will at times pull at your heart strings. If you are trying to decide definitely start at Book 1 and keep on until a new one comes out. You can’t go wrong.

Great series

Always a good story with some laughter mixed in. The characters are interesting and the narrator brings them to life. I really enjoy these books. And I like the fact that I don’t have to deal with gory scenes or sex scenes or foul language. It’s refreshing.

Loved all of it

We're back in Sinful for another bonkers adventure full of mystery, laughter & explosions. Moreover Ida Belle & Walter's wedding is finally on the horizon. Now can someone make it so that I can listen to it all over again as if it were for the first time?

One of my favourite series for a reason

This is one of my favourite authors, this series in particular and this book is a very good example of why. This is book 18 and it just gets better and better as you get to know the characters but as each mystery gets solved by the end of the book you don't need to read or listen to them in order. Just a warning once you have listened to one you will want to get the rest. It's full of unusual and interesting characters, not just the main ones who are just a hoot especially Gertie. I love Ida Belle's and Gertie wedding planning as it added such a fun and often humours interlude to the mystery.The mystery kept me guessing and was well worked, I did kind of guessed the out come but it was still a lot of fun getting there with the gang. I just love everything about it. Wonderful characters, hilarious situations and a great mystery. I cope it continues for a long time.
With Ida Belle's wedding fast approaching Gertie is into full party planning to make sure her best friend vote the wedding of her dreams of at least the wedding she and Walter deserves. But the Wedding caterer goes missing after phoning her friend all in a panic. Fortune and the gang jump into action to find her before it's to late. With the discovery of her boat drifting things don't look good and swamp team three turn there investigation from a Missing person into a murder investigation. The more they investigate the more they draw similarities between the disappearance between Molly and her brother. Will Fortune have to solve a cold case to cast light on Molly's? And can they do it all before Ida Belle walks down the aisle?
I can't imagine another narrator doing a good a job as this narrator. For me she is Fortune.

ldaBelle Finally Makes it Down the Aisle!

After looking into the death of the cage-fighting caterer for IdaBelle and Walter's wedding, running from bears and crocodiles; blowing up a skip; launching plenty of bottle rockets; looking into the death of a shrimp fisherman; re-encountering the semi-nude gentleman who thought Fortune was the prostitute he ordered; and a pretty outrageous Hen Party for the Bride to Be....the wedding finally takes place.

Such Fun and a Fabulous Murder Mystery!

Goodness me! I want to pepper this review with spoilers! So much so that, I can’t think of anything else to say other than - “Read It!”

If you’re new and intrigued by this title - don’t read it! Go to book 1: Louisiana Longshot. You have to! It’s the only way that you’ll get the full pleasure from each plot and character development!

If you’re a Miss Fortune regular, you don’t really need me to tell you anything! In fact I’m surprised that you’re reading this! It’s actually the best of the most recent tales, because it means so much!

Of course the narration was first class as usual. Cassandra Campbell can’t be faulted!

Enjoy!
