Publisher's Summary

The sixth audiobook in the New York Times best-selling Ghost-in-Law series. Jadyn St. James hopes that the two-week quiet period in Mudbug means things in the small bayou town are back to normal - whatever that is. But when a fisherman finds a sunken shrimp boat, and the boat captain is missing, Jadyn wonders if the damage to the boat was caused by a storm, or if something far more nefarious happened. Colt Bertrand has been fighting his attraction to the sexy game warden since he first laid eyes on her. Once more, their jobs have forced them together, but when a stalker sets his sights on Jadyn, Colt’s emotions launch into overdrive. Can he protect the bayou beauty and also protect his heart?

My New Addiction

This is a great cozy mystery/contempo romance. I made the mistake of thinking I could jump into the series with this book. I feel like I have missed a lot. This is definitely not a stand alone or series you should start midway. I definitely need to go back to the beginning and catch up.

The narrative is mixed and moved from the lead characters, supporting characters and the bad guy. This is generally smooth, but there are times it feels jumpy. So many voices giving the POV helps the reader stay on top of things. It cuts down a bit on the mystery, but it does make for a fuller read.

There is a romance here, but it seems to have been building for a bit, again the feeling of missing something arises. I expect I will understand the dynamic when I have read the whole series. It is a fairly clean read, but far from steam free.

I love the supporting cast and expect their stories are in the earlier books. Helena the ghost is a trip!! I love her sass and snarky attitude. She is definitely trouble, but oh so fun at the same time.

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. I hope she is on the whole series, because she has been delightful!

Now I have another series to be addicted to and now I need to go spend all my remaining Audible credits! I don't mind though because they are sure to be just as delightful as this one.

Fun

What did you love best about Chaos in Mudbug?

These are some fun stories - I like how the author pulls in all the people and keeps true to their personalities.

What did you like best about this story?

I like the introduction of a new person - Taylor.

Did Johanna Parker do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes - She has a nice voice --- but she needs to stop reading everything that is a "cliff hanger" sentence like a "radio announcer". It's predictable and frankly tiring. It turns a fun book into a satire - you could almost here the cliche music chords behind her : da da daaaa..it distracts from the story and if you listen to all the books in a row it's overwhelming. Glad I"m "caught up" - 'cause the "announcer" voice and "dire-ness" has now hit a peak. She's talented ---and if she could stop that piece -she would be great.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

no - see above.

Any additional comments?

The stories are fun - it gets a little irritating that all the women are 'stunning' and all the men are 'studly and perfect' --- maybe lighten up a bit on those pieces and some of this would simply be better.

This Series Was An Amazing & Fun Ride!!!!

This series was so much fun to listen to! I love how the author wove in the new characters into the series. kept me on my toes. I also liked how she changed from giving 'all the dirty details ' and changing to allowing the reader to use their own imagination for sex scenes in the last books of this series.

more fun

Chaos in Mudbug was one more of the fun, story twisting, books in the ghost-in-series. the characters will cause you to laugh out loud while sitting in the edge of your chair to find out what happens next in the plot. It doesn't hurt that the main characters are intelligent, strong women from several decades

Johanna Parker delivers as narrator!

This was my favorite book in the series (so far). Less explicit sex and more relationship development - for all the characters. Helene is obnoxiously funnier than ever. Love it.

In Series with Quirky Characters

Being haunted by your former mother-in-law is not a gift from God. A new detective enters the story and she sees ghosts. Great series and performances. Recommend

The story is not consistent with book 4.

Spoiler alert!


The ex girlfriend was already mentioned earlier. Sheriff even told Jayden that because of previous failed relationship, he wasn't interested in new relationship.

The first heroines got their relationship by the end of their arc. But Jayden and sheriff are dancing around 3rd book already.

it's getting boring.

Okay but preferred reading the books

I did not enjoy listening to the stories as much as I hoped. I found them annoying and rather boring but loved the books so am not sure why.
