Showdown in Mudbug by Jana DeLeon is the third and final book in the “Ghost-In-Law” mystery romance series. Publisher: Love Spell, July 2010

Who Killed Helena Henry?

Actually, considering her past, a better question would be: who didn’t want her dead? Prying, spying, pushy, pesky—she was the most meddlesome mother-in-law in all of Louisiana. Death hasn’t changed anything, either. Her specter still roams and is looking for justice…and a snack.

Of course, mortals such as self-proclaimed psychic Raissa Bordeaux believe there are more important mysteries to be solved. One involves a rash of child kidnappings. Another is New Orleans Detective Zach Blanchard: why do such fine behinds always end up on such uptight men? If only her crystal ball really gave answers. Instead, she’ll have to rely on Mudbug’s garrulous ghost, her own dark past and a Bayou boy-in-blue who might turn out to be her very own frog prince.

When a young girl is kidnapped Raissa using her psychic abilities inform the police that this is not the first kidnapping. When the police disregard her claims, Raissa along with help from her friends, Maryse and ghostly Helena use the skills that they have to find the young girl while secrets from Raissa’s past are revealed. This was a good read full of humor, mystery and romance that kept me turning the pages to see what happens next. There’s never a dull moment while reading this light mystery romance and being the final book in the series, this was worth the wait. My rating: 4 stars
