Louisiana Longshot by Jana DeLeon
Fast, fun, and familiar ... well, sort of familiar. For adventure, intrigue, and laughs in a rural south Louisiana setting, give the Miss Fortune series a shot!
In Jana DeLeon's book, Louisiana Longshot, we meet CIA assassin Fortune Redding who has been assigned to hide out in Sinful, Louisiana, where the bayou waters aren't the only thing hiding a mystery. Fortune has never had such a difficult task as keeping up with the colorful natives and their shenanigans.
Upon her arrival, a geriatric dog digs up the long-missing body of a hated man in her yard launching an official investigation by local hottie, Deputy LeBlanc. Not to be out-done by the proper authorities, the Sinful Ladies Society - who are much more than they appear - decide to do some detecting of their own and rope Fortune into helping out. What could possibly go wrong?
The series continues with:
- Lethal Bayou Beauty
- Swamp Sniper
- Swamp Team 3
