This is the first book in the Miss Fortune series, and I came to it after reading later books. Despite having some of the background already in place, I found it entertaining, and it was nice to learn why she was there, and how everyone first met.
The characters are hilarious in their personalities, but oddly competent. Fortune arrives in town hiding from a mistake in her past – she killed the wrong guy. Now she’s supposed to be laying low, but trouble finds her faster than an alligator on a death roll. The mystery is tight and the characters are strongly drawn as weird, and with unexpected pasts.
I recommend this to anyone looking for a kookie mystery series.
