Meet the Author

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jana DeLeon was raised in southwest Louisiana among the bayous and gators. Her hometown is Carlyss, but you probably won't find it on a map. Her family owned a camp located on a bayou just off the Gulf of Mexico that you could only get there by boat. The most important feature was the rope hammock hanging in the shade on a huge deck that stretched out over the water where Jana spent many hours reading books.

Jana and her brother spent thousands of hours combing the bayous in a flat-bottom aluminum boat, studying the natural habitat of many birds, nutria and alligators. She would like you to know that no animals were injured during these "studies," but they kept makers of peroxide in business.

Jana has never stumbled across a mystery or a ghost like her heroines, but she's still hopeful.

She now resides in Dallas, Texas, with the most spoiled Sheltie in the world.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Highly-Highly Recommend - must read and pass it on to others

    I loved reading all three Mudbug books, I wish there were more. Helena was a show stopper and the various outfits. This was so well read that you could actually visualize some of the outfits the she was wearing. Please, please, please give us more books like this.
