Publisher's Summary

Scientist Maryse Robicheaux thought that a lot of her problems had gone away with her mother-in-law's death. The woman was rude, pushy, manipulative and used her considerable wealth to run herd over the entire town of Mudbug, Louisiana.

Unfortunately, death doesn't slow down Helena one bit.

DEA Agent Luc LeJeune is wondering what his undercover assignment investigating the sexy scientist has gotten him into - especially as it seems someone wants her dead. Keeping his secrets while protecting Maryse proves to be easier than fighting his attraction for the brainy beauty.

    "My newest addition"

    This is book one in the series, setting up the ghost/cozy mystery/contempo romance. It is a really fun read with such quirky and engaging characters. Get ready for an eccentric read!

    Maryse is such a great character. She is sassy yet endearing at the same time. You really feel for her situation with the disastrous mother in law ghost. I love her analytical mind and how she tries to apply logic to the chaos.

    Luc is yummy, he is a bit of a player and you might find him a bit questionable. I had moments where I felt he wasn't good enough for Maryse. Fortunately, he shows true character later and ends up deserving his spot in his gal's heart.

    The romance is ore subtle, not a sweet courtship. There are lots of moments to build the relationship, but it isn't all hearts and flowers. It is also not a squeaky clean romance, it has a touch of steam but not the uber hawt details.

    The narrative is mixed between the leads and supporting cast. It is mostly smooth, but there are times it gets jumpy. I love the whole crazy dynamic of the town of Mudbug. Such fun!

    The mystery is many layered, which keeps you guessing at times. There were some great curve balls that I never expected. I love a mystery that keeps me on my toes.

    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!!!

    "Very funny! Great start to the series!"

    I started this series because I loved the narrator! I've listened to all the Sookie books narrated by Johanna Parker, so I was thrilled to see she did these books as well. So glad I did! I love this series. Made me laugh while vexing me with a good mystery. Johanna Parker does a great job of switching between the characters so you always know who is talking.

    Already listening to the next book!

    "If you like Charlaine Harris you'll like this!"

    This reminded me a lot of The Sookie Stackhouse Series. It's a light listen with the same narrator as the Sookie Stackhouse series. It's kind of fun, sort of silly, somewhat predictable, but I enjoyed it for the most part. I might listen to the second book in the series after listening to something heavy. It's worth the credit :-)

    "I love Helena!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Trouble in Mudbug to be better than the print version?

    The books & audio books are equally entertaining.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It kept me wanting more. I bought all that were available before I finished the first chapter in Trouble in Mudbug (the first book).


    Which character – as performed by Johanna Parker – was your favorite?

    Helena, Helena, oh and did I say, Helena?


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Sit back & get ready to laugh til you are sore!


    Any additional comments?

    If you love funny, witty, quirky southern folks, you will love this series. They are worth every cent & more that you spend for the books and audio books. These characters are so entertaining. (I just don't think they should have insulted Helena as much as they did. She made their lives so much more interesting!) I'd love to just sit down with author Jana DeLeon for a day and pick her brain to see how she comes up with her very funny characters & storylines. Thank you, Ms. DeLeon, for hours of enjoyment.

    "LOL what a great and funny story!"

    This story was so much fun to read! The main characters were fantastic. There was so much going on, a ghost, who was hilarious, murder attempts, mystery, romance, and so much great dialogue.

    The chemistry between Maryese and Luc was great and so was the nicely written sex scenes.

    There was so much going on all the time that you didn't want to put the book down.

    As for the narrator, well she was fantastic. I love Johanna Parker's southern drawl and its perfect for a Louisiana setting. Perfect!

    "Cute"

    This was a cute cozy mystery with a side of paranormal thrown in. It was pretty good up until the end that I thought was forced and not likely. Parts were very funny and Johanna Parker did a good job narrating.

    "Super fun!"

    This is a light funny story. Got through it in a few days, very clever and funny! The narrator is great, even with the southern drawl.

    "Worth every penny!"

    OK. Here's what happened. I noticed that the book was $!.99 if you owned the kindle edition. So I clicked the link and discovered that the kindle book was free! Big spender that I am, I plunged in. This book was much better than I expected. The narrator does an excellent job of bringing the book to life. I am pretty sure that I would not have spent a credit on this book, but when I am worn out and need some fluff to cheer me up I will use a credit to get the next one,

    I love the deceased mother in law.


    What does Johanna Parker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I selected the book because of Johanna Parker. I love her narration.
