Trouble in Mudbug (Ghost-in-Law #1)
With the wise-cracking ghost of her mother-in-law hounding her, a sexy half-Creole investigator ready to seduce her, and a killer on the loose, Maryse Robicheaux is feeling the heat on the Louisiana bayou.
In this book's instance the obstacle was not only the mystery suddenly surrounding Maryse, the main female character, but a ghost. Not just any ghost but Maryse's mother-in-law - who apparently makes her presence just as known in death, as she supposedly did in life, during her own funeral but only Maryse can...more

Maryse was a great character and Helena was a nice counterpart...when she appeared...and her changes of outfits were fun to read about. Luc sounds okay but I need to have him more in the story to get a good feel for his character.
Without revealing too much the last chapter was a surprise as I thought some of this would have been taken into the next book of the series since the events of this book were all over...more

I saw this while browsing cozy mysteries section over at Amazon and actually paid for it. The first thing that caught my eye was the fact that the author gave some of the characters dumb names. Maryse. What is that. This is not the first book I have read where the characters have the dumbest names. I don't understand what is wrong with naming a character just plain Mary. End of rant.
I love stories about ghosts that haunt normal people especially Topper-like stories. This was somew...more

To be honest, I didn`t expect much from reading this, except that it`ll be a fun and light reading.
And it did. It wasn`t that emotion-driving or depressed..Instead, I was being feasted by its fun read.
Despite the colourful cover, it didn`t come out to be that childish or girly at all.Well, maybe a bit..But I actually enjoyed reading the investigations/romance/paranormal attributes in this one.

I wasn't sure what to expect but ended up loving this story. I downloaded it for free but once I started reading I was hooked! I particularly loved the relationship between Maryse and her ghost-in-law, Helena. As the story progresses, more is revealed about why Helena gave Maryse such a...more

This book had me laughing at so many scenarios and I must say, the relationship Maryse had with Helena after her death was better than when she was alive. It was also heartwarming when Helena revealed the truth about Maryse's mum, the days when Maryse was just a kid and how she tried to look out for Maryse in her own way (even though it wasn't the best way). The romance between Maryse...more
Having a bullying mother-in-law is bad enough, but what do you do when said mother-in-law is so irritating she doesn't even go away after she is dead and 'not so gone'? In a place like Mudbug, Louisiana, it's hard being haunted by your mother-in-law, trying to find your missing ex to serve divorce papers, and trying to solve a murder before the murderer gets you too.
A very funny mystery/ghost story. Recom...more

What I liked: The quirky main character and her wise-cracking ghostly sidekick really stole the show. Maryse has a deep connection to her friends, her town and the Louisiana bayou. She’s also a science wiz and a hermit, which really sets her apart from most...more
