This book takes a turn away from the previous format of this series. This time we are going all cozy and juts a flirtation. I ended up starting this series with the 6th book, so I know this "romance" will be draw out over the next book as well. So, do not go into this looking for a HEA, not yet anyway.
This major change in the format wasn't something I loved. It is one of the reasons the series has lost a star. The other reason is the fat bashing. I am sick of it! It is so very uncalled for, sure Helena isn't helping with her wardrobe, but the catty comments pissed me off. Being a curvy girl, I take offence. It was not needed at all for the story and just made me dislike the lead, who I otherwise loved.
I enjoyed the overall mystery here, it wasn't very solvable, but that wasn't a biggie. I enjoyed the journey. Helena is a riot when she gets into the thick of it and forgets she is dead.
Jadyn and Colt are the main characters this time around. They don't have a romance, more of an animosity/flirtation. Most of the book comes from their POV, but there are also scenes from the supporting cast and the bad guys. Those inside thoughts are no help in identifying the villain.
No hanky panky here, bummer. Can't have steam if there isn't a romance.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Johanna Parker, who is fantastic. I love the gentle roll to her Southern accents, they are light but distinct. The pace is quick enough to keep the reader engaged and her energy is wonderful. Great voices that stayed distinct and consistent.
I am really enjoying this series and I hope future books have less fat shaming. Although, I will say Helena gives it right back! She has enough sass to keep me in a good mood!

Where does Resurrection in Mudbug rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It is difficult to rank "Resurrection" without the companion books in the series, for me they compliment each other. but among my audio collection I would have to say the entire series rank #1 for me at current.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Helena Henry is my favorite and the funniest character in theses series. I was a little sad when I finished reading "Showdown in Mudbug" and Helena "ascended" :). I was ecstatic to hear that she return in the very next book. I really feel that she makes the book worth reading. U can never imagine what her next antic will be.
What about Johanna Parker’s performance did you like?
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Johanna Parker, I am amazed at how she can capture each character, and the voice bring the characters to life. I have a habit now of selecting my audio book by the narrator first, then the content. Ms. Parker is at the top of my list of narrators.
Any additional comments?
Keep writing similar and by all means employ Ms. Parker to narrate
