The sixth audiobook in the New York Times best-selling Ghost-in-Law series. Jadyn St. James hopes that the two-week quiet period in Mudbug means things in the small bayou town are back to normal - whatever that is. But when a fisherman finds a sunken shrimp boat, and the boat captain is missing, Jadyn wonders if the damage to the boat was caused by a storm, or if something far more nefarious happened. Colt Bertrand has been fighting his attraction to the sexy game warden since he first laid eyes on her. Once more, their jobs have forced them together, but when a stalker sets his sights on Jadyn, Colt’s emotions launch into overdrive. Can he protect the bayou beauty and also protect his heart?

This is a great cozy mystery/contempo romance. I made the mistake of thinking I could jump into the series with this book. I feel like I have missed a lot. This is definitely not a stand alone or series you should start midway. I definitely need to go back to the beginning and catch up.
The narrative is mixed and moved from the lead characters, supporting characters and the bad guy. This is generally smooth, but there are times it feels jumpy. So many voices giving the POV helps the reader stay on top of things. It cuts down a bit on the mystery, but it does make for a fuller read.
There is a romance here, but it seems to have been building for a bit, again the feeling of missing something arises. I expect I will understand the dynamic when I have read the whole series. It is a fairly clean read, but far from steam free.
I love the supporting cast and expect their stories are in the earlier books. Helena the ghost is a trip!! I love her sass and snarky attitude. She is definitely trouble, but oh so fun at the same time.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Johanna Parker, who has a wonderful read. She keeps the southern accents light, for the most part. I love the swift pace to her read and the energy she brings to the words. All the voices have been distinct and were consistent throughout the book. I hope she is on the whole series, because she has been delightful!
Now I have another series to be addicted to and now I need to go spend all my remaining Audible credits! I don't mind though because they are sure to be just as delightful as this one.

Loved the entire series! The narrator was engaging and consistent throughout all of the books. If you need a great laugh while solving a mystery, you need these books. I am sad that I seem to be at the end of them.
This series was so fanciful but with enough real features that you could believe these sorts of events might happen! Love this author and all her series! They are fun and easy reads!
This entire series defies description...it's just plain entertaining & loads of fun to listen to...the story is great & the characters are even better along with a wonderful narrator!
Awesome series...perfect enjoyment!
These are some fun stories - I like how the author pulls in all the people and keeps true to their personalities.
I like the introduction of a new person - Taylor.
Yes - She has a nice voice --- but she needs to stop reading everything that is a "cliff hanger" sentence like a "radio announcer". It's predictable and frankly tiring. It turns a fun book into a satire - you could almost here the cliche music chords behind her : da da daaaa..it distracts from the story and if you listen to all the books in a row it's overwhelming. Glad I"m "caught up" - 'cause the "announcer" voice and "dire-ness" has now hit a peak. She's talented ---and if she could stop that piece -she would be great.
no - see above.
The stories are fun - it gets a little irritating that all the women are 'stunning' and all the men are 'studly and perfect' --- maybe lighten up a bit on those pieces and some of this would simply be better.
Jana introduces yet another interesting character to help solve the newest mystery.
This is a Great read for men and women alike.
Liked how it kept moving. Hard to put down. Several Helena moments made laugh out loud! I've fallen in love with the people of Mudbug!
