Fans of the Stephanie Plum novels by Janet Evanovich will enjoy the off-beat humor of Jana Deleon’s Miss Fortune Mystery series which can be found on the eLibraries Manitoba website and accessed with any South Central Regional library card. The first of this series is titled Louisiana Longshot and it sets the stage for the rest of the series.
CIA assassin Fortune Redding has ended up killing the brother of an arms dealer, and now has a price on her head, which means she needs to go off-grid. She ends up in the tiny town of Sinful, Louisiana and even though her cover persona is the exact opposite of her actual personality she prepares to temporarily live the quiet life, under the radar.
Unfortunately, she hasn't even unpacked a suitcase before her newly inherited dog digs up a human bone in her backyard. The victim ends up being one of the least liked individuals in Sinful and Fortune gets sucked into helping solve the mystery.
