It was a hell of a longshot...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 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 may blow her cover and get her killed...

I read this novel because my book club had selected it for June 2019. I didn’t expect to like it, since I’m not a fan of fictional series, but I was pleasantly surprised. The setting, the plot, and the characters caught my interest from the very beginning, and kept me until the last page. I hope this doesn’t spoil anything, but the dog is alive, happy, and content at the conclusion. The book stands as a satisfying read all by itself, so I didn’t feel like I had to immediately hunt down the second one in the series, but I think I probably will soon, just because they are fun.

Move over, Stephanie Plum!
This is fast, funny, and full of action. CIA agent Miss Fortune is in hiding, finds a leg bone in her backyard, and suddenly is involved in a mystery. Her partners in investigation are three senior ladies who apparently have combat experience, and absolutely no fear. Very enjoyable.
