    Great Series

    I enjoyed Trougle in Mudbug-(Ghost-in-Law Series). I enjoy mysteries where the characters make me laugh out loud. So if you like Janet Enanovich, C.L. Bevill, Gemma Halliday your will enjoy Jana DeLeon as well.

    Check out this series!

    I just finished reading all 3 books in these series. While some elements are predictable, the characters are loveable and it's fun to try to figure out 'who-dun-it' before the book is over. I recommend starting with the first book of course - but beware, once you read one, you'll want to finish the others!

    Pretty entertaining!

    This was a pretty funny book. A little bit of suspense, little bit of romance and a whole lot of laughs. Check it out. It was one of those that I bought just because it was cheap. I was really surprised. It is #1 in a trilogy. Make sure you read the other two.

    Cute read

    It's a fast read; it's very suited for a beach/vacation read. Nothing too deep, if that's what you like, but if you like cute stories this is it for you.

    fun mystery read,

    This was a fun lighthearted read. I enjoyed all three books in the series and really enjoyed the characters. I like stories that give all the characters some personality and would buy more of Jana DeLeon's books to read. It has a great sense of humor and still makes me smile thinking about different parts.

    Such a fun romp with a great story mixed into it

    How does an enviromental botanist go from the Louisiana bayou to target and know nothing that could be a motive for her death. She is orphaned, married to a man who left her behind to avoid loansharks and now hunted by someone who has way too much knowledge of her comings and goings. All she wants is to divorce the no-good husband if only she can find him and serve him with divorce papers, have a normal life, cure cancer, and quit seeing the ghost of her mother-in-law. But now she has to stay alive and has only mom-in-law's ghost and a quirky fake psychic friend to help her figure it all out. Great, fun read

    Last summer I was looking for a book that would be light-hearted

    Last summer I was looking for a book that would be light-hearted and fun. And growing up outside of New Orleans I looked forward to reading something set around my old stomping grounds. What I got instead was an addiction to Jana Deleon. She makes me cry from laughing so hard at these characters. The romance is an added bonus, but not overly done. I highly recommend Jana's books to anyone I can! Great job Jana!

    ***read full review at Gin's Book Notes .com***

    I knew from page 1 that Trouble in Mudbug was going to be an entertaining read.
    The opening has our main character Maryse and her best friend Sabine attending Helena Henry’s funeral.
    Helena was a total witch of a mother-in-law to Maryse and has a personality so strong that even death can’t hold her back.Maryse thinks it a trick of the lights or possibly stress that has her seeing Helena rise up out of the coffin and exclaiming, “What the hell is going on here, Pastor Bob? For Christ’s sake, I’m Catholic”.
    Poor Maryse soon discovers that Helena is sticking around to wrap up some unfinished business and she is the only one who can help her. 
    This book is fast paced, funny, and just plain fun.

    A good and entertaining read filled with a little bit of everything from humor to mystery to paranormal to romance, 
    this book has it all. If you are a fan of Janet Evanovich's "Stephaine Plum" series then you will likely enjoy this read.
