Publisher's Summary

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.

My newest addition

This is book one in the series, setting up the ghost/cozy mystery/contempo romance. It is a really fun read with such quirky and engaging characters. Get ready for an eccentric read!

Maryse is such a great character. She is sassy yet endearing at the same time. You really feel for her situation with the disastrous mother in law ghost. I love her analytical mind and how she tries to apply logic to the chaos.

Luc is yummy, he is a bit of a player and you might find him a bit questionable. I had moments where I felt he wasn't good enough for Maryse. Fortunately, he shows true character later and ends up deserving his spot in his gal's heart.

The romance is ore subtle, not a sweet courtship. There are lots of moments to build the relationship, but it isn't all hearts and flowers. It is also not a squeaky clean romance, it has a touch of steam but not the uber hawt details.

The narrative is mixed between the leads and supporting cast. It is mostly smooth, but there are times it gets jumpy. I love the whole crazy dynamic of the town of Mudbug. Such fun!

The mystery is many layered, which keeps you guessing at times. There were some great curve balls that I never expected. I love a mystery that keeps me on my toes.

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 can not wait to see what happens next!!! Super quirky fun series!!!

LOL what a great and funny story!

This story was so much fun to read! The main characters were fantastic. There was so much going on, a ghost, who was hilarious, murder attempts, mystery, romance, and so much great dialogue.

The chemistry between Maryese and Luc was great and so was the nicely written sex scenes.

There was so much going on all the time that you didn't want to put the book down.

As for the narrator, well she was fantastic. I love Johanna Parker's southern drawl and its perfect for a Louisiana setting. Perfect!
