Showdown in Mudbug | [Jana DeLeon]

Showdown in Mudbug

Who killed Helena Henry? The shorter list may be who didn’t want her dead. Psychic Raissa Bordeaux thought she’d left her former life behind, hidden away in her eclectic shop in the French Quarter. But when a child is kidnapped and Helena Henry appears, Raissa risks her true identity by offering the police help with the case. New Orleans Detective Zach Blanchard doesn’t believe in psychic hooey and is certain Raissa didn’t get her facts about the case from a crystal ball.

    "Fabulous series!!!"

    I am still loving this series! This is the third book and this time we get to be front row for Raissa's HEA. I was ready for this after the mystery about her in the end of the last book.

    Turns out Raissa is all kinds of awesome!! I am talking seriously cool hacker super spy type fantastic! I think she is my fav heroine so far in the series!

    Zach is her match as a yummy detective. Love their banter!! Raissa is a very naughty girl, in all the most fun ways! I had a great time reading their dynamic relationship!

    This is a mixed narrative, so you get both the leads POV alternately. There are also bits from the supporting cast and the bad guy.

    This is different from most cozy mysteries, it has a large romance quotient and that bedroom door is wide open! Not as much detail as an erotic read, but far from squeaky clean.

    The mystery has many levels, it is so strange how everything is so connected. But it is a cozy, so you go with it.

    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. She has been a delight throughout the series!

    I was a little upset that Hank does not get his own HEA book, but rather a side romance in this book. Boo, he has worked hard to redeem himself and deserved at least a novella.

    Disclosure - I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts opinions and ratings are my own.

    *** If you found this review at all helpful, please take a moment to let me know. I love reading and sharing my opinions with other readers. I listen at double speed, all my impressions of the narration are from that setting. Thanks for taking the time to read my review!

    "Very fun book"

    The thought of reading a book about a ghost that is helping solve a mystery and save the life of those that can see her to me is hilarious. This whole series was a fun entertaining read that if you do not have a good series to read this summer on the beach I highly recommend this it's very fun lighthearted and keeps your interest and kept me laughing..

    "Action packed, FBI & kidnapping!"

    This book had some many twist and turns I remained enthralled till the very end! Maybe the best book in the series! I love when series uncover a mystery that makes reference to previous books and ties up loose ends from previous books!

    "Nice Diversion"

    If you like the first books, you will probably like this one. It follows the same formula & story pattern - a little predictable.

    "love the narrator"

    for me the first book in the series was amazing. she went off the rails with the second one and now that nearly everyone can see the damn ghost and all the men are cookie cutter similar I've lost interest. And what woman, ever ,has uttered the words "no foreplay"??? I actually LOVED the heroine in this book south better than Sabine in book two. I just wish she'd had a better story, and a more interesting man, to back her up.
