Publisher's Summary

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.

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!!!

Entertaining

The writing style is a little rough but the story was entertaining enough. Nice complicated family Mystery.

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.

Enjoying the series, has some good humour

Any additional comments?

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".

Skip this one

I enjoyed the first book in this series very much. Quirky, lol fun, characters with some depth, and who doesn't love a ghost story! The second was short and a bit disjointed but assuming you've read book #1, this one fills in the ghost MIL's point of view. However, this book just didn't do it for me. The ideas were ok but the prosecution of the story is sloppy and full of holes. We expect a certain amount of suspension of disbelief, but this one requires so much it's just annoying. It feels like the frame-work of book#1 with silly moves in the romance story that sound more like a Jr High romance than adults and too much like the romance in book #1 with aforesaid silly moves added. And the Vietnam angle, nice idea but not in the least believable unless the reader knows nothing about the military and Vietnam. After reading Book #1 and #1.5, I purchased the next two. This one is going back. I'll give the next one a try but if it's like this one I won't bother finishing it and it will go back too.

Just what the psychic ordered!

They are so cute and relaxing. I swear I can see everyone of these people say and do everything that happens in the books. life can be stressful enough and these books are just what the psychic ordered!
