Trouble in Mudbug (Ghost-in-Law Series #1) by Jana DeLeon

Scientist Maryse Robicheaux thought that a lot of her problems had gone away with her mother-in-law's death. The woman was rude, pushy, manipulative and used her considerable wealth to run herd over the entire town of Mudbug, Louisiana.

Unfortunately, death doesn't slow down Helena one bit.

DEA Agent Luc LeJeune is wondering what his undercover assignment investigating the sexy scientist has gotten him into – especially as it seems someone wants her dead. Keeping his secrets while protecting Maryse proves to be easier than fighting his attraction for the brainy beauty.

(Note: This book is part of the author's backlist, originally released in print in 2009 by Dorchester Publishing)

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.

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!

I came across this book by accident and have read it several times...LOVE it!!! Very FUNNY!!!!! Romance and more laughs this series has me longing for more authors with the Jana DeLeon style of mystery, romance, laughs, southern flare. I have been reading for many years and have never come across an author that had me searching for more like her. Loved it!!!! A must read!!!

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.

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.

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.

The story has a good plot, but if you are looking for a clean hallmark mystery type book, this is not it. The author uses dirty curse words throughout the entire book and there are sexual situations that are inappropriate. I want readers to know what they are purchasing. I wish there had been a review telling me before I purchased the first three in the series.

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!

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

***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.

Light hearted and funny mystery. The ghost is great. Well worth the entire series.

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.
