About the Author
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jana DeLeon was raised in southwest Louisiana among the bayous and gators. Her hometown is Carlyss, but you probably won't find it on a map. Her family owned a camp located on a bayou just off the Gulf of Mexico that you could only get there by boat. The most important feature was the rope hammock hanging in the shade on a huge deck that stretched out over the water where Jana spent many hours reading books. Jana and her brother spent thousands of hours combing the bayous in a flat-bottom aluminum boat, studying the natural habitat of many birds, nutria and alligators. She would like you to know that no animals were injured during these "studies," but they kept makers of peroxide in business. Jana has never stumbled across a mystery or a ghost like her heroines, but she's still hopeful. She now resides in Dallas, Texas, with the most spoiled Sheltie in the world.

In an effort to find someone that is a blood relative Sabine takes the advice of psychic Raissa Bordeaux and hires a private investigator. Beau Villeneuve works as a PI but he was once a federal officer whose expertise was finding people who were lost. When he meets Sabine he is immediately attracted to her, which terrifies him. Beau has a policy against relationships, especially if the woman is a client. Determined to keep things professional he attempts to keep his distance from Sabine but as she seems to be a target of someone determined to end her life, Beau can't help but look out for Sabine and risk losing his heart in the process.
With the help of the once most hate woman in all of Mudbug, now turned spunky and helpful, if not a pain in the rear, ghost Helena, Sabine and Beau will have to unravel the mystery that is Sabine's origins. Not everything is what it seems and the truth's that are revealed will rock Sabine to the core. As time runs out, the danger increases and Sabine will be faced with truths almost too horrible to comprehend and some truths that are more than she could have ever hoped for.
This was such a fun story to read! As always there is quite a bit of humor, sass, and snark that is the perfect blend with a slightly suspenseful and romantic cozy mystery. I do feel that certain elements were introduced and not fully realized or carried through the storyline when they should have been. I also think that although the romance was sweet, there was nothing intense about it that would make the characters be so "hot" for each other. It felt almost like a forced happily ever after just to give the readers what they wanted. Overall though, I enjoyed this story and I will continue with this series.
Not much is written about Helena herself and the mystery about her death other then what is contained in an autopsy report so if you are looking to find out what happened to her it's not going to be solved in this book. But the private investigator is able to track down some of Sabine's relatives for her and she is indeed related to that family. Now she has a few life and death situations herself in the course of the book. Is she the target of someone's foul play or is someone else the target this time? And what happens with the attraction between Beau and Sabine. Read this very well written sequel in the Mudbug Series and find out.
It's fast paced, set near New Orleans, you get the whole feel of Sabines little shop.
