Publisher's Summary

Hetta Coffey is a sassy Texan with a snazzy yacht, and she's not afraid to use it - most of the time.

She's an intrepid cruiser, but wild rumors of marauding gangs of flesh-shredding giant Humboldt squid on a rampage in the Sea of Cortez could keep even Hetta tied to an expensive dock. However, when the opportunity for an intriguing and highly lucrative charter arises she talks her best friend, Jan, into signing on for a mysterious cruise.

Damn the calamari! Full bank account ahead!

Po Thang Meets Bubbles--A Tail of Two Species

I've been really enjoying a lot of audiobooks of late--engaging the brain while the body is otherwise occupied doing such mundanities as laundry, cleaning, shoveling snow . . . I started in on "Just Different Devils," the very first book I've read by Jinx Schwartz, and was immediately caught up in a FEMALE heroine off on the same sorts of hijinks usually reserved in thrillers to the male of the species. Occasionally bordering on the slapstick, Hetta Coffey, a forty-year-old adventuress who is living on a boat near Baja, Mexico, gets involved in a string of events with her dog, Po Thang, and an assorted group of friends with whom she's clearly had many an adventure in the past. We are treated to some delightful female bonding plus all the derring do and action of a Bruce Willis flick (Brucetta?), well narrated by Stevie Puckett who clearly has an ear for Scottish, Texan, and Spanish inflections.

Fun Series!

I had read a few books in this series and really enjoyed them, so I was thrilled for the opportunity to try one in audiobook format. Reading is great but the audiobook really brings this story to life in a most delightful way. Stevie Puckett did a great job with the narration and I had a terrific listening experience. Hetta's adventures are always tons of fun and this one is no different. Mayhem abounds when Hetta's at the helm and you're in for a devilishly good time! I would recommend Just Different Devils: Hetta Coffey Series, Book 7.

I love this series!

I have read and listened to several books by this author and narrator and so enjoy them. The characters are quirky and endearing. There is humor and twists in the book, which I love. Each story is original and standalone listens. This review is not a synopsis of the book, but my opinion. I think the books are getting better and better. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review.

Just different devils

Narration was poorly done. Took the interest from the story. How did Jan get that accent so suddenly??

Why, oh why don't boats have brakes?

Not having read a Hetta Coffey book before (this is book 7) but intrigued by the cover and wooed by the voice of the narrator, I requested and was given a complimentary copy of Just Different Devils, without any obligation, by the rights holder via Audiobook Boom. Thank you so much: I have now discovered a new and excellent series to explore.

Completely standalone, the reader meets Hetta and friend Jan, plus dizzy dog No Thant and a dolphin they call Bubbles off the coast of Mexico. (Yes, lots of others, too. Naughty, old enough to know better, all of them.) Hetta is offered, and accepts, a profitable job to take out an anonymous client on her beloved boat for a month. Trouble is, there have been reports of people being attacked and killed in the area by giant squids. But this job will pay out a lot of money, so...
Surprise. The client is someone she knows only too well.

A good mystery story with fabulous characters (colourful and not quite honest), funny, cheeky and great dialogue, all performed with a delicious Texan accent by narrator, Stevie Puckett. So absorbed in the production, this reader barely noticed if the individual characters were voiced distinctively (so I guess they were!) other than wincing slightly at her dreadful Scottish accent for the attractive bagpipe playing man who moors his boat next to hers. But what did that matter? It was all tremendous fun.

A sniff of the sea, a frolic with a dolphin, friends united on the slightly seedy side of honest - delicious fun. Recommended.
