Fortune, Ida Belle, and Gertie get involved in a gator poaching case after Gertie, who has been acting strange even by Gertie standards, tries to save a gator by taking it home with her from the swamp. Gertie names the gator Godzilla and turns it into a sweets craving reptile. However, when her cousin, Petey, who is autistic, is arrested for being the gator poacher, the women really get invested in finding the true poacher.
While there are some truly memorable moments in this book, it was my least favorite of the series so far. The movement of the story was slow. The characters never disappoint. This is a series best read in order.
