    "Love this series to pieces!"

    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!!!

    Story
    "not enough of the mother inlaw !!!!!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    probably not this one


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jana DeLeon? Why or why not?

    it depends, I would only listen if I knew there would be more of the mother inlaw she is a hoot !


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    No but because I like Johanna parker so much I dealt with it.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    the romance was okay but i got this second book because the mother inlaw is so funny and this book it was like they would forget she was supposed to be in it and then they would throw in a scene and you'd say ok now she is back only for her to disappear again.


    Any additional comments?

    The writer seemed to have forgotten that the series is called the ghost in-law the first book was good the second was too, since it was through the ghost mother in-laws eyes. but the 3rd she was hardly around so I am not sure I will use a credit to find out if she did the same thing in the next book.

    "fun story, fun series"

    I really like all of Jana DeLeon's books, no matter which series. I like Helena, and she plays a larger part in this book. She has learned to do many things and provides good laughs. There is even a "dark and stormy night" involved.

    "Fun light reading"

    Mudbug by Jana DeLeon is a fun and interesting place to read about, especially Helena the resident ghost and all the supernatural things that happen to the people surrounding her and Mudbug. I'm thoroughly enjoying the funny, light reading.

    "Must read, wraps up the series well."
    If you could sum up Mischief in Mudbug in three words, what would they be?

    Audacious & Funny but Predictable


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mischief in Mudbug?

    The group hug.


    What about Johanna Parker’s performance did you like?

    She captures the personality of the characters, specially Helena. She is the perfect compliment to Jana's ribald writing style.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    as usual I laughed out load a couple times but not as often as the 1st book.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the humor, love the audacious way Jana DeLeon writes. Each book alone was great but the story line is too repetitive to read back to back. Stalked damsels, tampered vehicles, shadow lurkers. I look forward to reading her next book but she needs to come up with a new story line or she will lose me.

    Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.

    Story
    "Mudbug still fun, but too familiar~"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    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.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Wraps everything very neatly.


    Have you listened to any of Johanna Parker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to 2 others. The reader's performance enhanced the story.


    Did Mischief in Mudbug inspire you to do anything?

    No
