This audiobook may be listened to as a standalone novella. You do not need to have listened to either series to enjoy. The Rose Gardner series and the Ghost-in-Law series combine to bring you a rollicking round of holiday fun!
Rose Gardner and Neely Kate Colson are thrilled with Mason's early present to Rose - a trip for the two of them to New Orleans for shopping, great food, and awesome seats to Wicked. Neely Kate plans to use the opportunity to visit a psychic and find out once and for all what her paranormal ability is. But when the psychic is murdered, and Neely Kate and Rose were the last people to see her alive, they find themselves the main suspects in a Christmas killing.
Taylor Beaumont has exhausted all resources in trying to figure out her new ghostly roommate, Helena. Seeing a psychic is the last resort. Taylor hoped for answers about Helena's worldly existence but instead finds herself embroiled on the wrong side of a murder investigation. Seeing no other option, Taylor and Helena combine forces with Rose and Neely Kate to clear their names. But can they solve the mystery in time to save Christmas?

This was a lighthearted fun short story. You know if it has Helena, it's going to have laughs. Just when you thought she couldn't get any weirder, she finds a live person who wants to emulate her. I like the narrator from the Mudbug series better. After adapting to the change in voice, it was ok. Anytime they put Helena in a book, I'll read it. Big belly laughs from her.
A better narrator. The attempt at southern accents was appalling.
Hard to focus on the story
Contrary to the publisher's note that it is a standalone book and that one doesn't need to have read other books in the series and can't imagine how anyone could follow the storyline who hadn't. Narrator didn't distinguish between characters
Maybe it was because it was combined with the characters from the other series but I just didn't like it as much as the other books in the Mudbug series, all of which I thoroughly enjoyed.
I love how the two stories are tied in together.
Yes, already have most of their books.
Her normal voice is good but lacks the follow-through of emotion at the end of sentences while doing voices. It's a bit difficult to listen to. I'm just trying to get to the end of this story to know how it ends.
