I am an avid reader, animal lover, devourer of guacamole, storyteller and the author of An Unexpected Obsession, A Dose of Reality, Witch Way, A Coven by Christmas, Love Spells, Summer Solstice (coming soon), Flirting With Death, Flirting With Murder and the rest of the upcoming Assassins Anonymous series. I attended Arizona State University (go Sun Devils!) and make my home in the Valley of the Sun with my husband and three pampered pets. I like to discuss everything funny, sexy, sassy and absurd. But mostly I like to talk about books... and shoes... and outrageously expensive purses... and Chanel sunglasses ...oooh, and anything sparkly... or fluffy! So, come on in and let's chat!

Trouble in Mudbug by Jana DeLeon might be my favorite new series!

Before the recommendations on my Kindle went wonky, Trouble in Mudbug by Jana DeLeon was a constant suggestion for a book I might be interested in. It took a while for me to bother clicking on it because the premise seemed a bit silly. I'm glad I finally did though, because this was a wonderful book! Full of vibrant characters and an interesting location, I was pulled in by the sample and immediately clicked the "Buy Now" button. 

Trouble in Mudbug is a light, fun read with the hilarious twist of a Mother-in-law haunting. I loved how the characters developed throughout the story. Nothing stagnant in this story aside from the smell of the bayou. I am looking forward to the rest of the books in this delightful series!


"Scientist Maryse Robicheaux thought that a lot of her problems had gone away with her mother-in-law’s death. The woman was rude, pushy, manipulative and used her considerable wealth to run herd over the entire town of Mudbug, Louisiana. 

Unfortunately, death doesn’t slow down Helena one bit.

DEA Agent Luc LeJeune is wondering what his undercover assignment investigating the sexy scientist has gotten him into – especially as it seems someone wants her dead. Keeping his secrets while protecting Maryse proves to be easier than fighting his attraction for the brainy beauty."

Trouble in Mudbug is currently $0.99 on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. You'll spend more for the subsequent books in the series, but they're worth it.

Happy Reading!

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love the look of yours! I'd say something super profound about how awesome you are, but my brain is scrambled. It really is well put together. Sorry I'm not more eloquent.

  2. I've seen her books but I've never tried them. After I get caught up on my gigantic TBR pile, I might give her a try. Thanks!
