    Good Mystery

    This book kept me turning the pages! There were a few things that I did not like about this book though:

    1. When I bought this book I was looking for a romance- and although this book does have some romance in it, the focus of the book is the mystery surrounding Sabine's family. I would classify it more as a Mystery book with a side of romance.

    2. I didn't really feel the chemistry between Beau and Sabine.

    But I did find the book enjoyable (especially the parts with Helena in them!) and I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good mystery.

    Good Read!

    Pretty good read, make sure you read the first one and the third one. They all tie into each other. Entertaining! Especially the mother-in-law. Did I mention the mother-in-law is dead?

    Entertaining - a quick read!

    This second book in the Mudbug series was just as entertaining as the first. It's a good detective type story with the hilarious ghost-in-law character to keep things lively.

    A winner

    After Helena the ghost makes a disturbing appearance during a client's visit, Mudbug psychic Sabine LeVeche learns from Dr. Breaux that her biopsy test affirms she suffers from acute myeloid leukemia; a type that with treatment most people go into remission especially if the person receives a bone marrow transplant from a close relative.

    However, Sabine has a minor problem with the bone marrow therapy; she needs a relative, but knows of none in spite of her efforts to find kin. Private investigator Beau Villeneuve, her BFF Maryse and Helena help the stunned twenty-eight years old woman. However, their efforts are sidetracked by someone trying to kill Sabine and her attraction to Beau who feels the same way about her.

    This is an engaging sequel, but the TROUBLE IN MUDBUG is that several key support characters (especially Helena) cannot stand alone without having read the previous book. Still Sabine's search for blood relatives takes a serious health turn that makes for a serious story line while her mutually shared feelings with Beau adds a naked romantic element to the recipe. The suspense subplot adds tension, but also takes a back seat to the health crisis and the attraction as Jana DeLeon cooks an interesting spin in Mudbug.

    Absolutely delightful! This was light, funny, had just enough romance, and plenty of mystery. As a genealogist and family researcher, I enjoyed the extra plot involving Sabine's "family". I especially loved Helena as a recurring character, but also enjoyed the many twists and turns in figuring out Sabine's "mystery". I've ordered the next book in the series. These characters are too good to let go now! If you are just starting on this series, consider buying the "3 book set" rather than individually. I wish I had known how much I was going to enjoy this series. I would have bought the set and saved some money. Still, it's been thoroughly enjoyable!

    Entertaining Read

    DeLeon continues her humorous mystery series. Fun reading. Light but a good break from serious, deep thinking novels. I recommend the entire Mudbug series.

    Where do you turn when you learn that you have cancer and you ne

    Where do you turn when you learn that you have cancer and you need a bone marrow transplant in order to survive? You look to your family. What happens when you know that you were adopted and your adopted family is no longer living? You start searching for your real family. What do you do when you have searched for years and still cannot find anyone connected to you? You hire a private detective. What happens if the private detective finds your family but is not sure he wants to share the truth with you in order to protect you? You convince him to level with you and then ask him to go along to meet the family. What do you do when your real family turns out to be crazier and richer than anyone else you have ever met? You try and keep yourself and the others around you from being killed by your crazy new family.
    Poor Sabine. She just wanted to find her family so that she can beat the cancer that is eating away at her but what she finds may kill her faster than the cancer. Luckily she meets an Ace Detective that not only finds her family but then sticks around to protect to her.
    Jana Deleon does it again with her second book in the Ghost-in-law series. She brings life, love, and laughter into a wonderful story that will keep you on the edge of your seat and warm your heart! Let's just hope you don't start seeing Helena Henry too or it could mean your certain death!
