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.

Ida Belle and Gerti are perfect friends and companions for Fortune. As former Vietnam-era government operatives, both ladies "get" her and this fabulous trio treat every event and social opportunity like a potentially deadly mission.
This third installment of the series finds Ida Belle framed for the murder of a mayoral candidate. It's up to Gerti and Fortune to clear Ida Belle's name by discovering the real murderer, all while avoiding Carter. In the process of running their own investigation, Fortune gets her foot trapped in the sheriff's toilet, shoots out her own windows, Gerti has more tree mishaps, Marie joins the gang as a provisional member (she's too nervous to make a full-fledged agent) and Fortune acknowledges her fledgling emotions. Par for the course for this group.
If you need an escape, a distraction, a laugh (or ten), then read this series!
In this third outing, Ida Belle is accused of murdering Ted the man who is running against her in the mayoral race. Gertie and Fortune try to prove Ida Belle's innocence. Carter, the deputy sheriff, doesn't think that Ida Belle is the killer but is receiving lots of pressure from the prosecutor and the community to make an arrest. He is also upset that Gertie and Fortune continue their investigation after he has asked them to desist.
Jana Deleon has written a tightly crafted cozy mystery with unforgettable characters. There is a lot of humor in the books as well which makes them a delight to read.
