Overview

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jana DeLeon, a new release in the Ghost-in-Law series.

After an eventful first week on the job, Game Warden Jadyn St. James is happy the small bayou town of Mudbug, Louisiana, seems to have fallen back into its normal routine. But when FBI agent Raissa Bordeaux is kidnapped, Jadyn is certain the short-lived peace has come to an abrupt end. Statistics don’t lie, and Jadyn knows that the longer Raissa remains missing, the less likely she’ll be found alive.

Sheriff Colt Bertrand knows the FBI won’t let him participate in their investigation, but is certain the federal agents aren’t as qualified as he is to locate someone missing in the swamps surrounding Mudbug. And although he’s been avoiding the beautiful game warden, Colt is sure that teaming up with Jadyn gives him the best chance of finding Raissa.

With the clock ticking, Colt and Jadyn defy FBI orders and launch their search, but can they find Raissa before it’s too late?

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 Series

    Good series. To really enjoy and understand everything, I suggest starting with the first book and read in order. Only complaint was when the main character (supposedly a game warden) didn't know the difference between frogs croaking in the swamp and an alligator or being afraid of snakes. Come on - a game warden that needed the big strong man to explain about the creatures in the preserve where she works? Otherwise nice quick beach read. Not too heavy, just pleasant easy story.

    4 STARS

    I love this series. It is light, fun cozy mystery. The characters I love.

    The ghost-in-law is Helen. She reminds me of lucy in I love Lucy. Always causing a mess of trouble that makes you laugh. She wears weird outfits, she can't always control. She can't control sometimes if she has mass or not always at the wrong moments. She is always stealing food.
    Only a few women can see her. Helen used to be rich.

    Jadyn St. James is the new game warden. She is Maryse's cousin. She has not been to the area for too long. Has issues with her mother. She can see Helen.

    Maryse Robicheaux was the daughter-in-law to Helen. She was the first to see and hear Helen at the funeral. They did not get along. Helen left her most everything because she knew Maryse would protect the land. She is now married to Luc a DEA Agent.

    Sheriff Colt Bertrand is attracted to Jadyn. Colt is tricky. He wants to help find his friend even if she is not found in his area.

    One FBI Agent was run over by hit and run on his way back to town. His wife another FBI Agent Raissa Bordeaux is missing. The two agents are married. They had just finished a undercover assignment.
    The FBI Agent in charge wants everyone not FBI to stay out of the swampland. Maryse actually owns the land and leases it to the state. Jadyn has authority over the swamp. Colt figures out if he takes his vacation and can be a private contractor working under Jadyn they can search the cabins in the swampland and look to see if someone has been using one to keep Raissa.

    I laughed a lot reading this book. I am glad to see more of these characters.
    I bought it on amazon.

    These books are the best

    This book has 170 pages. But you turn two to three pages to make one number. If you have read one Mudbug book than you have to read them all. What fun.

    Enjoyed most of the Ms. DeLeon's books but found this one was rather dull. 170 actual pages.

    Missing in Mudbug

    Love this series but had several problems with this one. The time line stinks...it's only been one year since Raissa and Zach got together but Zach's now an FBI agent. FBI training is five months and he was undercover for four...come on, he's a rookie and not seasoned enough to have a 'reputation' within the bureau. Raissa also swore she would never return. Helena's antiics are getting too predictable and silly and why is Maryse all of a sudden ditzie?? Where's the attraction and heat between Jadyn and Colt? Hope the next one is better.

    I love the way Jana DeLeon keeps the characters I¿ve grown to kn

    I love the way Jana DeLeon keeps the characters I’ve grown to know, but always puts them in unique entertaining situations so they don’t become boring. In “Missing in Mudbug, as with her other books, she introduces new characters that fit right in. Once again, this author has a mix of mystery, suspense, and small town bayou humor. I am originally from a small La. town and she has nailed the culture.

    Fabulous

    I can't wait for these books to come out and read them in one day. They are so much fun and nail biting. You just never know what the crazy people and ghost will get up to next. The only bad thing is waiting for the next installment.

    Have you read Jana DeLeon's Mudbug series yet? If not, why not?

    Have you read Jana DeLeon's Mudbug series yet? If not, why not? They are fast, funny and fabulous!
    Missing in Mudbug is the latest in the series, and it continues the adventures (and desperately ignored sexual attraction) of Jadyn and Colt as they search for the missing Raissa. Although they keep it completely professional, the whole town can see these two have the hots for each other. But that's on the backburner as the Mudbug gang of Luc, Maryse, Mildred, Helena and the usual delightful cast of characters from the town concentrate on finding Raissa. Although they did manage to share one very romantic, very sexy kiss........
    The tone of this book was a little more serious than previous ones, which worked with the slightly grittier plot, but there were still several laugh-out-loud moments, and I was up until midnight hanging out with my friends from Mudbug!

    So HIGHLY recommended

    This book is funny and smart, a great read whether you have read the whole series or just starting. If this is your first, I suggest picking up the others, the are all laugh-out-loud funny but with a storyline that makes you want to keep on reading. I can't wait until the next one, please hurry!
