A new Mary-Alice mystery in the Miss Fortune world: Black Widow Valley

Young men have been disappearing in Black Valley, New York–which now has the misfortune of being known as “Black Widow Valley.” As it happens, Mary-Alice Arceneaux has a personal connection with the tiny community, and is called in to help. Mary-Alice is thrilled to be a part of the investigation–but by the time she arrives at the forbidding Kilmer House where she will spend the night, she realizes she may be in over her head. Fortunately (?), Sinful’s Sheriff Robert E. Lee is on the case too!

This modern retelling of Lost Man’s Lane takes the action from the sultry bayous of Southwest Louisiana to the rustic hamlets of upstate New York State.

 

The Miss Fortune series has been described as Miss Congeniality meets Golden Girls, a lighthearted fish-out-of -water adventure with a dash of romance in Louisiana bayou country.

Black Widow Valley is an authorized Kindle Worlds novella written in Jana DeLeon’s Miss Fortune world.

Aloha, Y’all: Miss Fortune Goes to Hawaii

CIA operative Fortune Redding crossed a ruthless arms dealer. Now she’s hiding out in remote Sinful, Louisiana, with a fake identity, fake hair, and a real price on her head. Now Ahmad’s men are getting close, and she has less than 24 hours to make it to the safe house in Hawaii. They’ll be looking for a woman traveling alone, so Fortune needs a companion. A respectable, low-profile, non-trigger-happy companion. Which rules out Gertie and Ida Belle. But there’s one person who might fit the bill…

Mary-Alice Arceneaux just got a big surprise for her 70th birthday–a trip to Hawaii, courtesy of young Fortune Morrow. But with bounty hunters on their trail, and family secrets lurking in the unlikeliest of places, the southernmost state has a few more surprises in store.

ALOHA, Y’ALL comes with ten authentic recipes including loco moco, Spam fried rice, and St. Charles Hotel Chicken Gumbo (original 1920 recipe).

The Miss Fortune series has been described as Miss Congeniality meets Golden Girls, a lighthearted fish out of water adventure with a dash of romance in Louisiana bayou country. Many thanks to Jana DeLeon for letting us write in her Sinful world!

A New Miss Fortune Mystery Novella: The Vanishing Victim

Sinful’s newest resident, Mary-Alice Arceneaux, is starting to catch on to the fact that the Sinful Ladies’ Society does more than brew 100-proof cough syrup to sell at the church bazaar.

When her new friend Ida Belle gets into serious trouble, Mary-Alice wants to help the Sinful Ladies in their quest for justice. But this means that the unflappable Mary-Alice will have to endure a visit to the Swamp Bar (where decent ladies don’t go) and battle her vindictive cousin, Mayor Celia Arceneaux. Will Mary-Alice’s gentle temper and unshakable faith in human nature endure?

The Miss Fortune series has been described as Miss Congeniality meets Golden Girls, a lighthearted fish out of water adventure with a dash of romance in Louisiana bayou country.
