Louisiana Longshot by Jana DeLeon Book Summary

It was a hell of a long shot....

CIA assassin Fortune Redding is about to undertake her most difficult mission ever—in Sinful, Louisiana. With a leak at the CIA and a price placed on her head by one of the world’s largest arms dealers, Fortune has to go off-grid, but she never expected to be this far out of her element. Posing as a former beauty queen turned librarian in a small bayou town seems worse than death to Fortune, but she’s determined to fly below the radar until her boss finds the leak and puts the arms dealer out of play. Unfortunately, she hasn’t even unpacked a suitcase before her newly inherited dog digs up a human bone in her backyard.

Thrust into the middle of a bayou murder mystery, Fortune teams up with a couple of seemingly sweet old ladies whose looks completely belie their hold on the little town. To top things off, the handsome local deputy is asking her too many questions. If she’s not careful, this investigation might blow her cover and get her killed. Armed with her considerable skills and a group of elderly ladies the locals dub The Geritol Mafia, Fortune has no choice but to solve the murder before it’s too late.

What authors are saying:

“Southern wit at its best!” - NYT Bestselling author Gemma Halliday

“Sinfully funny!” - NYT Bestselling author CC Hunter/Christie Craig

What readers are saying:

“If you like Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series, you’ll love Miss Fortune.”

“This was a hoot!!! If you like mysteries and Southern eccentrics, this is the book for you. More twists and turns than the Louisiana bayou.”

“It has a flavor of Miss Congeniality, but it is much more than that.”

“I read this book in one night, unable to put it down because I couldn’t wait to see what happened next.”

“I’ve rarely thanked writers for the entertainment they provide. Nevertheless, I feel strangely compelled not only to thank this author, but to recommend this book to everybody and anybody – I give it five laugh out loud stars!”

Louisiana Longing. Very fun and entertaining Fun characters Great Story

A fun cozy. This is a fun run through the Louisiana bayou. Slightly more complicated than most cozy mysteries, the characters are what make it memorable. The setting of a small town in Louisiana could have been played up more and could have added more to the story. Like most cozies the small town setting makes murder seem out of place and more jarring than homicide in the big city. In spite of these small concerns, this is a fun story with a unusual ending. At least once there was a “I know who did it and there’s no reason to keep reading “moment followed by a “boy was I wrong! “ I love it when that happens – it is so great when an author keeps you guessing until the end.

Louisiana Longshot. Great read twisted and turned and you never could guess what was going to happen next. I swear I couldn’t put it down I read the whole thing in less than a few hours. Can’t wait to start the next one.

Really fun read:). This was a great story. The descriptive writing seemed to represent the lifestyle and flavour of bayou living and the characters were easy to relate to. The intense intrigue from the mystery surrounding the land inheritance was well balanced by the hilarious rompings of the ghostly mother in law. Well worth reading! I'm just off to buy the next ones in the series:)

Louisiana hotshot. Brilliant and so funny couldn’t put it down

Fun read highly recommended. Great story and the characters are brilliant. Well written and a good page turner!

Great read!. Fantastic heroine and support cast. Definitely worth a read! Waiting for more..

Louisiana Longshot. A wonderfully crafted story. A bit long winded in getting started, but well worth surprises along the way.

Y’know what’s Sinful? Not leaving a review :). I place this delightful read in the Rose Gardener/ Addison Holmes camp. The protagonist, Fortune is easy to read along with on her escapades. Add a man candy, and island named No. 2- hahaha, a GSOH, bad guys and two Sinful dames w brains (bless ‘em) and you have a neat & tidy sleuthing adventure in the Deep South. I am more than biased towards Rose Gardener and Addison Holmes respectively, but this Miss Fortune series will hopefully join them on the top three podium.

A fun read. Enjoyed this from the first page right through. Love the characters and humour. Definitely want to read more of this series.

Fabulous book. I thoroughly enjoyed this Jana Deleon book too. A new host of characters, and I do mean characters .... A new heroine and a new town. Great recipe for another top notch read. I have already bought and started the 2nd in the Fortune Redding Series. I will read them all. Great job Jana. You're a terrific author.

Hahaha...... Complete nonsense but 100% fun light read

Bayou’s culture. Entertaining read! Beats all cliches about whodunnit, well done.

Louisiana long shot. Oh my lord, the first book had me in stitches on the bus, at work, at home, in the doctors surgery!! I loved this story, the characters and the humour. I have since downloaded the next 3 in the series and finished 2. About to start on the 3rd so can't wait. Haven't laughed so much since Donna Joy Usher. Regards Rondah Saville

Hilarious read!. I love, love, love this book! Great characters, great storyline and I love that it is set in small town Louisiana. For all of us non-"girlie" women, this is a great read.

Light and fun read. She has a cheeky, humorous writing style. Reminds me of Carl Hiassen. Written in first person, this is really fun for male readers.

Left me wanting more. This is a great read, reminds me of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum, but original story and characters. Am delighted there’s a whole series awaiting.

Jana DeLeon's. First book I rate and I have read lots of them. I'm even going to splurge and buy the other tomes !! Funny, well written and very entertaining. Thank you Jana :)

Friendship, romance and mysteries. Joyful read. Mystery solved with a delightful team of 3 eccentric females.

Funny as hell. One of my favourite characters, one of my favourite writers. Top notch series. Read them all immediately.

Funny & entertaining. I found this book to be very funny, entertaining and a light read. I will definitely reading the remaining book in the series. All I will say is I wish I had grandmothers like the sinful ladies!

Another WINNER!. Again, I'm laughing while gobbling up this excellent book by Jana. I've thoroughly enjoyed every page of her work. Very well done! Just purchased the next three of the series as well and know I'll be reading all her books again.

Louisiana Longshot - What a great read !. The adventures, antics and circumstances that the characters find themselves in is a great read and had me laughing out loud many times. The story flows very well and as the pages dwindle one only hopes that this is the beginning of a series as I never wanted the story, or its characters, to stop. A FANTASTIC DELIGHT TO READ ! I recommend it to all who love adventure, mystery, and a good laugh as the story unfolds. A talented and skilful author whose work I would love to read more of.

Louisiana Longshot. Very funny and well written had me in stitches yet had a interesting storyline. I could hardly wait to read each chapter.

Louisiana Longshot. A fast paced, laugh out loud story. A fabulous read.

Lousianna Longshot. Enjoyed the characters. Great for a light summer read. Good little mystery with some chuckles.

Awesome. This was an easy but exciting read.

Awesome. I am going to refer this book to my friends and family for sure. It is so funny. I loved every moment of readying it. I'm looking forward to any sequels.

Great writer.. Fantastic writer, story teller!
