Publisher's Summary

Best friends Sue Jan and Lovita run a beauty shop/boutique in the little West Texas town of Wachita. They share a passion of food and fun. But one day, over lunch in a Chinese restaurant, Lovita opens a fortune cookie with a sinister message: "Your father was murdered..." - a clue that leads them to God, an international spy ring and several devastatingly handsome strangers. A most unlikely pair of detectives, these girlfriends "Comb" the countryside with style, sarcasm, and lots of Szechwan.
This tale is like good take-out food - definitely worth bringing home.

A cozy read that will make you laugh too!

This is a fun and exciting mystery cozy read with many, many laughs in it. When the girls get together, there is no holding back. Read along as characters such as Sujan, Monroe, Lovita and others are off to explore a murder mystery that turns into a spy tale just like it came from the movies. It is written in such a quirky witty way that you will either be laughing in stitches or shaking your head in disbelief! When you get a bunch of ladies together, nothing is off limits! This takes me backs to some of my fun days with the girls!

This is my first read by author, Linda Kozar. She did a great job on the plot. Lots of danger, holding my interest & suspense too. Never a dull moment. The narrator, Caroline Miller delivers a flawless read filled with fun and excitement, clearly spoken and easy to follow. Well done ladies! This book just goes to show, you never know what you will find inside a fortune cookie!

Delightful Christian Southern Mystery!

Would you consider the audio edition of Misfortune Cookies to be better than the print version?

I only listened..and it was great!!!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Lovita and Sue Jan...its a tie, because they were both awesome!

What about Caroline Miller’s performance did you like?

Oh it was so good....great accents and character development...super funny too! I would listen to her again without hesitation!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was very touched with Lovita's relationship with God...some people might not get it....but I do!

Any additional comments?

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

This was a very delightful and fun listen! The main character is Lovita and she is a chubby southern beautician...who owns a beauty shop with her best friend Sue Jan! They love to go to the Chinese restaurants in there town and have lunch. One day Lovita gets a fortune cookie with a mysterious message that sends her and her friends on a mystery hunt that has its hilarious ups and downs! There is a lot of references to Christianity that I found quite refreshing, and coming from a southern family myself I know how southern christian ladies can be! All Lovita and Sue Jan really want is to find true love....and in the end they do! Really fun and fabulous listen! I will definitely continue this series! 2 thumbs up and a big thank you to audiobookblast(dot)com
