Undercover CIA agent Fortune Redding spent her first three weeks in Sinful, Louisiana dodging insults, makeup advice, guard dogs, bullets, and Deputy Carter LeBlanc, both professionally and personally. But just when she thinks things are going to settle down in the small bayou town, someone sets her friend Ally’s house on fire. Carter, who’d just started pursuing Fortune on a personal basis, goes back into cop mode and admonishes her to stay out of his investigation. This time, he swears he won’t issue any warning before arresting her. But with her friend’s safety hanging in the balance, Fortune can’t resist taking matters into her own hands and calls on her partners in crime fighting, Ida Belle and Gertie, to help. This is a mission for Swamp Team 3. ...

    A great addition to the hilarious antics of the Sinful crime fighters. The ability of this series to cause me laugh out load moments remind me of early Stephanie Plum books.

    The fourth book in the Miss Fortune Mystery series by Jana Deleon. Now starting her fourth week of being stuck in Sinful, LA, Fortune Redding is going on a date with Deputy Carter LeBlanc but that gets derailed when the call comes in that Ally's house is on fire. (Ally is the awesome baker we met in previous books.) Once again, Carter must insist that Fortune and her friends do not interfere in the investigation but, of course, that falls on deaf ears.Although these books can be read as stand-alones, I recommend reading them in order. I think a person will appreciate them more that way. Anyway, another fun and delightful read.

    This series keeps getting better and better!I just had the pleasure of reading Swamp Team 3 by Jana DeLeon and let me tell you, this book had me laughing from start to finish. Ida Bell and Gertie are up to their old tricks, and some new ones, and of course, Fortune is stuck right in the middle. There wasn't a single thing I would change about this story. It had the right amount of mystery, romance, and sassy humor. I can't wait for the next book in the series.Hilarious, fun, spunky, and witty! A definite must read for anyone who loves a humorous mystery!

    The fifth installment in the Miss Fortune mysteries, Swamp Team 3 by Deleon, continues the hilarious exploits of CIA assassin Fortune Redding with her entourage of former spies Ida Belle and Gertie. Someone tries to set fire to Ally's house, so the intrepid trip band together to find the culprit. The investigation is complicated when Ally's next door neighbor is found murdered in her back yard shortly afterwards, and the FBI barge in to take over the homicide investigation. Much hilarity ensues as usual. Another 5 stars.

    I am so glad I was alone when I started this book. I laughed so hard in some places that I lost my breath and had tears running down my checks. I had to put the book down to get myself under control. Everytime today when I think about the scenes I start laughing all over again. this is a fun mystery that could only happen to Fortune and her friends in Sin, LA. This is part of a series of books. you do not need to read the first 2 to enjoy this one, but it helps with the back story of these 3 ladies. the first 2 books are just as much fun to read.This young crow and 2 old crows bring a new level of what trouble they can get into.I am sure looking forward to the next book from Jana.

    It's rare lately that I find a book that just makes me happy. A good heart-warming story with lots of laughs and good warm happy feels. So imagine how happy I've been to spend my Christmas break with the eclectic crew of Fortune, Ida, Gertie, and the lovable law abiding Carter. It makes me want to hop in my car and go find these people in Sinful, Louisiana and join in on all the fun. Read this series, people. Especially if you are a fan of laughs, friends, and genuine happiness.

    Fortune has only been undercover and in hiding for 3 weeks in Sinful, Louisiana and she has already seen her fair share of bodies and had numerous attempts on her life. When someone tries to burn down her friend, Allie's house Fortune, Ida Belle and Gertie are on the case. That is until Carter tells her in no uncertain terms to stay out of police business or risk finding herself in the big house. Fortune agrees to stay away from investigating but Ida Belle and Gertie don't. When the FBI show up and take over the investigation Fortune justifies that she isn't getting involved in Carter's investigation, but in that of the FBI. As usual she finds herself in quite a mess, this time involving a chicken riding a motorcycle and winning "Best Boobs" at the Swamp Bar's wet t-shirt contest. Another great one in the series.

    An arsonist is loose in Sinful, Louisiana, causing Swamp Team 3 to mobilize in order catch the criminal.  In Jana DeLeon's fourth novel in the Miss Fortune series, Fortune is just starting out on her highly anticipated "not-a-date" with Deputy Carter when he gets summoned back to town because of a house fire. Allie, Fortune's only female friend her age, is left temporarily homeless by a deliberately-set fire. This gives Fortune the opportunity to host Allie in order to protect her from the arsonist and a creeper who has been coming around, whether he be the arsonist or someone else.

    I have to confess that I am so glad today is a holiday and due to dental surgery I have to stay at home. Why? Because I am able to do a reading marathon of the 'Miss Fortune' series and no one was there to hear me laugh hysterically while reading "Swamp Team 3."This time Fortune receives a phone call that Ally's house caught fire and she is suffering from some smoke inhalation. As Fortune, Gertie, and Ida Belle aka Swamp Team 3 rush off to check on Alley, they insist she stays with Fortune until the repairs are made and the house is habitable. As the fire department moves to complete their investigation a handsome fireman named David seems to have fallen on Ally's radar.The next day Carter stops by to confirm his suspicions that the cause of the fire was arson. So, now the team is making plans to catch the arsonist. However, later that night a creeper is lurking outside Fortune's house. When she goes out to investigate, she is attack by a tomcat and Deputy LeBlanc shows up.Carter has now asked Ally out for dinner and although she knows it be better to refuse she accepts anyway. However, while on their way to New Orleans, they have to turnaround when Carter gets news of a murder. Here we go again and this is just week four of Ally living in Sinful. This time the killer will give the team and Carter a merry Chase, that is until the FBI shows up at their door. Things continue to stay interesting on the Bayou including Fortune's winning competition in the wet tee shirt contest. Yep, you heard me.I love these books especially the crazy characters. They provide such humor in the face of intrigue, suspense and incredible action. What's not to love? Do yourself a favor and pick up on this series and book. You won't regret it.

    Another good book by Jana featuring the team of crime solvers in Sinful Louisiana. It is such fun to read a series like this as the characters grow from misfits into a team of misfits. But ever so loveable. It is like visiting good family only you just don't want to leave them. This is a book of laughter with mystery involved, bad guys, hunky deputy Carter and a twosome of elderly ladies. Fortune who is hiding from some real bad guys and she and the elderly ladies team up to solve crimes much to Deputy Carter's dismay. Fortune has not had female friends before and discovers she cares and that she must protect her friend Ally. Just a darn good book and you will laugh. Start with the first book and read the whole series you will love it.

    Jana Deleon did it again! I am in love with this series. Swamp Team 3 delivered Fortune, with her crazy elderly bff's and their borderline insane antics. I really enjoyed that there was more Carter and Ally in this book. Ally's house burns down, of course Fortune gets involved, throw in a murder, wet T-shirt contest and high speed chases (that never go as planned) and you have a hit! I was laughing out loud and getting strange looks while reading this one. Can't wait for the next edition with more crazy antics and hopefully we'll eventually get some steamy one on one time between Fortune and Carter. This book can stand alone, but I recommend reading the previous books, you'll get more from the characters.

    Fortune Redding is a CIA assassin who has been relocated to Sinful, Louisiana as her cover was blown by and international arms dealer who has put a price on her head. Fortune has joined forces with Ida Belle and Gertie two ex-Viet Nam operatives that run the Sinful Ladies Society which helps control the town. Frequently at odds with Deputy Le Branc over her involvement in his investigations just adds a flavor to their budding romance.A laugh out loud story of prat falls incongruent to Fortune’s extreme athleticism and their professional meddling.

    With an overabundance of books and authors to choose from these days, there aren't too many new releases I immediately buy and devour. This series by Jana DeLeon falls into that elite category. I love these characters so much that I would gladly volunteer to be plopped down right in the middle of Sinful, Louisiana, in spite of its relatively high crime rate. This latest book in the series did not disappoint, and the storylines just get better with time. I can't wait until the next one!

    This was the best book in the series. I didn't want to put it down so it only took me a day and a half to read it. I'm so happy something is finally starting with Fortune and Carter. I wish he knew that she is really in the CIA and not a librarian. I want them to work together.

    These books are on a really short timeline, about a week between, and it would seem that Fortune and the geriatric Mafia would get dead tired by the pace. But they are fun and the mysteries to solve are quite good.Swamp Team 3 - (cue the Mission Impossible theme here) Your mission should you choose to accept it is to solve the mystery of who set Ally's house on fire and who is the creeper.Of course they accept the mission. Ally is the wonderful waitress at Francine's coffee shop and baker extraordinaire. She is also Fortune's first and only friend her age, so, Fortune takes is rather personally that someone set her house on fire. Fortune also takes it personally when later that night someone is creeping around her house. Carter, the local deputy is taking Fortune on a date when the call comes in about the fire, He goes back into cop mode and tells her to stay out of his investigation. That is not likely to stop CIA Agent in hiding, Fortune Redding, but it does give her pause when the FBI shows up and takes over the case after their chief suspect winds up dead. Something more is going on and since Swamp Team 3, Fortune, Gertie and Ida Belle, didn't promise to stay out of the FBI's case, all bets are off.

    Fortunes friend Ally needs help only the Sinful Ladies can provide.This book sees the fourth instalment of Fortunes escapades in Sinful, Louisiana. Along with her friends Ida Belle and Gertie Fortune is looking into why somebody would want to set her best friend Ally's house on fire. Carter, Sinfuls deputy, warns the ladies to stay out of it and leave the investigation to him (as usual) but this time it's personal, Fortune can't sit idly by whp p.o.ile Ally may be in danger no matter if it does put her developing relationship with Carter at risk. So begins another rousing visit to Sinful where Fortune, Ida Belle and Gertie have a whale of a time trying to solve the mysteries which keep popping up, Sinful was such a peaceful place to live before Fortune moved there. Crazy how good these books are and written with such humour. I love them.

    Love This SeriesI simply cannot stop reading this series. Thankfully there were 10 out when I discovered the series. The first book, Louisiana Long, shot was free. It hooked me. The treasures in the series are the two older ladies, Ida Belle and Gertie. They are in their 70's, and they were counterintelligence in VietNam. They are a hoot! Ida Belle is a crack shot and has her thumb on everything going on in their small Bayou town! Gertie, bless her heart, needs glasses and is a little out of shape. But she keeps up and is a valuable member of the team. But of-course the real muscle is Fortune. She is a CIA assassin hiding from a terrorist. She is learning to love, have friends, and belong to a tight community. And she is not going to let anyone endanger the town she is coming to love. Great Series.

    I thought this was her best one yet, but I'm a bit of a romantic. 😊 Definitely the best ending so far, in my opinion. We've all been waiting to see what might develop between Deputy Carter LeBlanc and Fortune, and this book doesn't disappoint in that regard. I have really enjoyed seeing the friendships between Fortune, Allie, Ida Belle, and Gertie develop. It's sweet that Fortune is finally realizing that there is more to life than just her career, and that there are good people out there that can make up for the treatment she received from her father. And it's all so entertaining, as well. If you haven't started these books yet, you should. Highly recommend.

    Another great book. Just when you think they can't get much better!! Though this one wasn't as funny as books previous in the series, it still had its moments and it's certainly not my favourite but I thoroughly enjoyed the wild escapades of the swamp team 3. Carter had absolutely one a place in my heart with this one. Finally jumped down from his high horse and the ending also had me swooning!!The mystery of this one wasn't the best but still made for a great story to read.

    Totally hilarious, if somewhat implausible, cozy mystery. The characters are fun and likable (except for the bad guys, of course) and there is plenty of humor along with the constant action. I will read the rest of the series, in-between more serious books. It's a very nice summer read.

    Each book is funnier than the firstThe mayhem that the Swamp Team 3 gets into is hysterical. Fortune can't resist Bertie or Ida Bell's brand of mayhem. This time she even caused some of her own. You'll enjoy this book they're hard to put down.

    #4 in the "Miss Fortune Mystery Series."Mostly good, tends to get "a little wordy" at times.This one has a creeper, and an arsonist at Aly's house and the gang needs to find out who.One of the suspects is found dead in Ally's backyard.
