Hurricane Force (Miss Fortune Mysteries Book 7) Kindle Edition
A force to be reckoned with…
During missions as a CIA assassin, Fortune Redding saw and overcame most every obstacle, but Sinful, Louisiana, keeps producing new challenges for her. When a hurricane blows through, it brings a shower of counterfeit money raining down on the tiny bayou town.
When the money is linked back to Ahmad, the arms dealer who issued the kill order on Fortune, everyone is worried that her nemesis is far too close for comfort. When Ahmad’s men turn up in Sinful, the situation becomes life-and-death for Fortune, Ida Belle, and Gertie, and Deputy Carter LeBlanc learns Fortune’s true identity.
As Swamp Team 3 rushes to locate the counterfeiter, Fortune hopes to take down Ahmad and free herself from her fake life. But will her relationship with Carter make it now that he knows the truth?
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.

Overall I was disappointed since it doesn’t seem to have much of a happy ending. I think it would’ve been somewhat more entertaining throughout the books to have Carter (hero lead) know about Fortunes background as he knew they get themselves into trouble at different times. But some how he was not able to quite pinpoint how the threesome were the culprits of the different antics. That would have been somewhat more believable for the storyline. Remember he’s a military man himself of 12 yes.
I will not be proceeding with the series even though I have enjoyed it. After reading reviews of future books it seems like the same five things are always happening.
I have enjoyed the work and thank the author for a great book series.
The plot in this book was a little darker than the others. It centers around a counterfeit ring connected to Ahmad, Fortune’s nemesis and the reason she is in Sinful. Because of a situation that comes up when Carter and Fortune respond to a burglar alarm, Fortune has to take action that opens Carter’s eyes that Fortune is not who he thought she was. In the end, Carter admits that he doesn’t think he accept who she really is. This is devastating for me because I really enjoyed the sexual tension between them and enjoyed how their relationship was developing. I cried really hard at the end. Reviews for future books say this is only temporary. I hope that is true.
I am from Louisiana, so my main criticisms have to do with mispronounced names in the audio narration. For instance, Carter’s last name is Leblanc. There is no hard “C” sound pronounced at the end of the name. Also, there are two characters called Big and Little Hebert. The narrator says HeBert, but it’s actually pronounced ABAIR. Sometimes the mispronunciations are so bad that it’s funny.
The cat is finally out of the bag and now things are heating up for Fortune. Due to a counterfeiting scandal Fortune has been put squarely into a situation that has brought Ahmad himself to Louisiana. Desperate to finally take down the man that has been the bane of her existence, Fortune and the girls are going to get in deeper than ever. The only question now is what will Fortune do with her life if the death threat from Ahmad is lifted. This installment is a real game changer in the series and I can't help but be surprised by how things shake out.
