LOUISIANA LONGSHOT, book 1 of A Miss Fortune Mystery series by Jana DeLeon, was a fun, fun read.
CIA assassin Fortune Redding has a price on her head, so her boss sends her to Sinful, Louisiana, to pose as his niece, who’s in Europe. Fortune is ordered to fly below the radar and has to pose as an ex-beauty queen turned librarian—a nearly impossible request for a hardcore assassin.
Fortune doesn’t get a chance to unpack her suitcase when a human bone floats out of the bayou and into her backyard. Before Fortune can blink, she’s teamed up with two sweet old ladies, known as The Geritol Mafia by the locals. But there’s more to them than meets the eye. Throw in a hot law enforcement officer, Carter LeBlanc, who always seems to catch her partially clothed, and it’s a read I couldn’t put down.
