From NY Times and USA Today best-selling author, Jana DeLeon, the second book in the Ghost-in-Law mystery/romance series.
Family can be the death of you...
Sabine LaVeche needs to locate a blood relative fast - her life depends on it. Then Helena Henry shows up offering to help, and Sabine knows she's really in trouble when it's the best idea she's heard in a while. When private investigator Beau Villeneuve takes on Sabine's case, things heat up in more ways than one, and Sabine struggles to balance thoughts of a life with Beau against her chances of living at all.
As the investigation proceeds, they begin to uncover the secrets of Sabine's past and one thing becomes clear - someone doesn't want Sabine to get the answers she seeks.

Take a look it's in a book...Reading Rainbow!
Did I mention I love this series!! It is part cozy mystery, part contempo romance and a whole lotta ghostie fun!
Helene cracks me up! She is just so much trouble!
The lead this time is Sabine, who we met in the first book and had a tiny taste of what was to come for her.
I love her sassy attitude. She does annoy a touch with her fake psychic job, although she is more of a counselor to her clients.
Beau is a deliciously hunky PI. He is a perfect match for Sabine! Love their dynamic.
This is a open bedroom door, that means at least one scene with a little steamy detail!! Not your typical cozy at all! It is not a full on smexy erotic read, but it is far from squeaky clean. I loved it!
This is a mixed narrative, that flows nicely. We go between the two leads POV for most of the book, with a few supporting spots thrown in throughout. Gives a much fuller read!
The mystery this time was more predictable, well up until the curve-ball. If you see it coming, you are a whole lot wiser than me! Twists can be fun but this was totally left field!
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!!!

Johanna is a good narrator bring characters to life
No but did get back to it when I free time
This was my 3rd Mudbug book. Like the others - easy-listening, fun [esp. the ghost character], a nice diversion - but it follows the same pattern & therefore the third story feels very predicable. I would recommend it - if my friend was looking for something that was enjoyable but required no thinking.
Wraps everything very neatly.
I've listened to 2 others. The reader's performance enhanced the story.
I really like this series. Really good and entertaining for a quick read. The story moves right along without a lul that so many books tend to have. As in the last book, the love scenes are a little much for me.
I can only guess that it is because of the excellent narration?
A Charlaine Harris book/mystery
The ghost in law.
To be honest no, part of the enjoyment of this type of story is to listen to it in installments. Its nice to look forward to.
This is the second book in this series and I'm invested in mud bug and its inhabitants. Great light hearted entertainment. I will be downloading the next in the series.
There seems to be a need for some authors to throw in to pieces they have written unnecessary sex scenes. I am not in any way a prude, but in the middle of what had been a good funny story comes a sex scene that is rather descriptive and not at all necessary. This could be skipped by the author making a suggestion of the "event".
This series gets better and better. The twist that took place this book really made it more interesting. The characters really come to life and close to death!
Hard core Audble listener, been listening to recorded books since they were on casset tape...
I multi task while listening, and I admit I had trouble following the family tree as presented. I kept remembering from the prior book where the picture of Sabine's parents was faked so it threw the whole story off for me. Still scratching my head. I still enjoyed the characters and the reader, just the story was a bit off.
I have found this series very fun the humor with romantic mystery is wonderful.
Make sure you start with book one it helps explain. You will love this fun series.
"Thoroughly enjoyable listen"
Loved it - really witty and entertaining
- would recommend it and have done ! Already have downloaded the next book in series
