About the Book:
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.
I wasn’t sure what to expect after having read the Miss Fortune mysteries and loving them, I tried not to expect the same. There was no need to worry, I enjoyed this book, all the characters, and the location just as much.
There is plenty of action and humor within the cover of this book. Maryse is a scientist looking for a “cure”. Getting herself too close to knowing exactly what is going on, she finds herself in trouble. Luckily a sexy agent, posing as a scientist, is there to help protect her. Maryse also ends up dealing with a very manipulative ghost, her mother in law.
The antics are plenty and the characters are very well put together. There is definitely some steamy romance scenes, so if you’re not into that, you can easily skip over. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will be reading book two soon.
