Publisher's Summary

From New York Times and USA Today best-selling author, Jana DeLeon, the third book in the Ghost-in-Law mystery/romance series.

Family can be the death of you.…

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. He suspects her of something besides being the most intriguing and attractive woman he’s ever come across. But when Raissa’s secrets put her in danger, can Zach convince her to trust him with the truth before it’s too late?

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!

Suspense and Laughter

Suspense and plenty of laughter. This book was the most suspenseful out of the series. Of course there were plenty of things you knew may happen but not all. A fun read!

Voices of Men

Women cannot do men’s voices..... Get men to read men’s parts. It’s irritating to here soft spoken males.

Great Series

Jana DeLeon is a very talented author. Her ability to intertwine the characters in her series from book to book and devise intricate keep-you-guessing plus is wonderful. Laugh-out- loud funny and I can't wait for the next book!

Hilarious read

What made the experience of listening to Showdown in Mudbug the most enjoyable?

The whole book was enjoyable. I have recently discovered this series and am now making my way through them all. The characters are funny and interesting.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Showdown in Mudbug?

The incident with the hot dogs was very funny and I found myself laughing out loud which is not good if you are listening on your iPod in a public space.

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

Oh definitely Helena

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me laugh in so many places but it also has its sad moments too

Any additional comments?

you can judge my satisfaction with this book and indeed the whole series by the fact that I have bought the first four books in this series and will buy the rest in the very near future

Okay but not for me

I loved the books and purchased the Audible versions expecting to enjoy these more. Unfortunately, I found them a bit annoying.
