Throwback Thursday is a topic hosted by Renee at It’s Book Talk. It’s a chance to share some old favourites or books that have been on your ever growing To Be Read list. You can check out Rene’s picks here.
Today’s pick is:
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.
(Note: This book is part of the author’s backlist, originally released in print in 2009 by Dorchester Publishing)

P L U S
This was my first Jana DeLeon book. I got hooked into her bayou setting right away. It’s a paranormal cozy because Helena is a ghost but that’s not the focus of the story. The funny moments are really where poor Maryse tries to deal with the fall-out of things caused by a ghost no one else can see!
I enjoyed this one and the rest of the Ghost-in-law series.
