Rest when you're dead?
It's time for the annual Halloween festival in Sinful, and Fortune, Ida Belle, and Gertie can't wait to suit up and enjoy the food and activities. But when a dead man gallops through the park on a black stallion and slides to a decapitated stop right in front of Swamp Team 3, they know another festival is about to be turned on its head...so to speak.
Gil Forrest never won any popularity contests, and his dramatic and somewhat horrifying ride isn't going to improve his statistics. But since his body was supposed to be tucked away in a funeral home, no one could explain how it ended up on a horse in the middle of the festival. Everything about the setup is strange, and Fortune, Ida Belle, and Gertie suspect there is more to the Headless Horseman ride than just a tasteless prank. And they plan to find out what it is.

About the Author
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jana DeLeon was raised in southwest Louisiana among the bayous and gators. Her hometown is Carlyss, but you probably won't find it on a map. Her family owned a camp located on a bayou just off the Gulf of Mexico that you could only get there by boat. The most important feature was the rope hammock hanging in the shade on a huge deck that stretched out over the water where Jana spent many hours reading books.
Jana and her brother spent thousands of hours combing the bayous in a flat-bottom aluminum boat, studying the natural habitat of many birds, nutria and alligators. She would like you to know that no animals were injured during these "studies," but they kept makers of peroxide in business.
Jana has never stumbled across a mystery or a ghost like her heroines, but she's still hopeful.
She now resides in Dallas, Texas, with the most spoiled Sheltie in the world.

This one and the last two, are nothing like the first one. There is little to NO action. Too much conversation. Not what made me want to continue the series.
Thus this is probably the last one by this author that I will pay to read. Too bad.
SPOILERS ALERT: *I found it distasteful the way they thought of Gil’s wife, Tiffany. There didn’t seem to be any true feelings for the things she endured as a teenager. *I also didn’t like that she just called Manny and asked him to do a search on this or that person. What happened to Big & Little? They were a delightful addition to the story. *Carter seemed to be always stressed and he didn’t figure anything out on his own, really! *Even the roles she had the free main characters play was different somehow.
This book shouldn’t have existed; she should have stopped with 19. If she writes any additional books my suggestions are: Stop using God’s name and Biblical references; they aren’t necessarily and you offend some readers. Go back to some of your earlier books I really enjoyed some more than some later ones. Don’t make Gertie and Ida Bell equal with Fortune; Gertie’s mishaps are one of the things that add humor. Ida Belle’s take on her best friends made me smile. Don’t be ridiculous with events (The lawyers office event was just stupid and utterly unbelievable).
The series: the Fortune series as a whole is a delightful funny mystery series. You meet characters who are wonderfully loyal, direct, intelligent and a pure mess. They captivate you to want to read the entire book/series and invite them into your heart.
When a dead horseman shows up at the Halloween Festival, and dumps his head into Gerties' hands--this is the beginning of an investigation with a lot of twists and turns, that takes them from Sinful to New Orleans. Jana Deleon had me again laughing out loud at the antics of the three, and kept me guessing until the end of the book as to "who done it"? A wonderful read. I highly recommend.

I know that writing takes an awful lot of time but l did wonder if there was ever going to be more about the inhabitants of Mudbug which just seemed to end without any apparent reason. Having a crossover with Fortune and Helena being able to see each other would be great.
