I like this series and this was a fun little read but the story needs to move in a forward direction instead of stall mode. Decide who the mayor is going to be - the indecision has been in 3 books or so while the votes are being recounted (among other things). It was kind of funny about Gertie's alligator being like a pet but totally unrealistic since alligators are reptiles. I don't think that they are capable of being friends with anything, much less a human. Several things need to be wrapped up so Fortune can move on with her life in Sinful. There is bound to be lots of fun stuff to write about as the characters grow and develop.
