This is a nice series starter and it is quite comical. I loved that this story is about a mother-in-law who has passed but her spirit remains due to some unfinished business. The characters and dialogue are all in line with it being a small town and I liked that it had great humorous elements too.
As far as mysteries go it was nicely done. There are plenty of twists and turns and just when you think you are certain who did what another element is introduced that blows your assumptions out of the water.
#### Potential Spoiler Alert #####
What I think ruined it a bit for me was that the main characters made great declarations of love by the end that made my eyes roll. I think that their "I love you forever sentiments" could have been stretched through another few books. Maybe the author did this because the next book is going to be about different characters? I don't know. What I do know is that I will be carrying on with this series as I did find it quite enjoyable and humorous.
Maryse attends her mother-in-law's funeral like any good person would do, even though she is estranged from her deadbeat husband, Hank. Maryse would love to get a divorce if she could find Hank so that he could be served with papers. During the funeral, Maryse sees her mother-in-law, Helena, get out of the coffin and nobody else seems to see it. She is shocked to learn that she has been named in Helena's will and even more shocked to find out what she has inherited.
Luc is in Mudbug investigating an anonymous tip concerning illegal dumping in the bayou. He is an undercover DEA agent and moves himself into Maryse's office by posing as a zoologist. As Maryse has one bad thing happen to her after another, Luc realizes that more may be going on than he first realized.
This book was incredibly funny at times. I can only imagine what Maryse would have looked like as she talked with a ghost that nobody else could see. The ghost, Helena, became funnier as the book progressed and by the end of the book I just loved her. The situations the characters found themselves were always amusing.
I thought the mystery was quite interesting. This book had some twists and turns that I was not expecting at all. There were at least two times during the book that I was absolutely shocked. I love that this light-hearted story was able to keep me guessing. The romance in this book didn't take over the story and I liked the chemistry between Luc and Maryse.
I listened to the audible edition of the book and thought that the narration was wonderful. The narrator added to the story. Her character voices were distinctive and the pacing of her speech was wonderful. I think that Johanna Parker was the perfect narrator for this story.
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun, light-hearted book. This is the first novel by Jana DeLeon that I have had a chance to read but I definitely plan to look for her work in the future.
Maryse’s life just kept getting better (not) when Luc LeJeune showed up in her office posing as a zoologist. He was actually an undercover DEA agent investigating an anonymous tip concerning illegal dumping. Is Maryse the one who left the tip? Maryse didn’t want Luc around. She’s happy working by herself and doing her tests in the bayou. Learning her mother-in-law left her the huge parcel of land in the bayou was shocking. It wasn’t long after that someone tried to kill Maryse. Who and why was a big mystery.
This suspense had a few laugh-out-loud moments. Many having to do with Helena, the ghost. She was very manipulative, causing lots of problems for Maryse. Starting with giving her the land.
