Ghost-In-Law Mystery Series from Jana DeLeon

Ghost-In-Law-SeriesMystery, romance and humor, a combination few can resist. But also a combination that comes together for Jana DeLeon’s Ghost-In-Law mystery series. The ghost turns out to play a hilarious part in solving the mysteries. An interesting and fun twist on the typical mystery novels.

On the Death of Helena

A pushy, manipulative and rich controlling mother-in-law becomes a bit different in her ghost state. Yup, Helena is the one who dies and frees her estranged daughter-in-law, Maryse, from her clutches. As Helena continues to haunt family and friends in the small town of Mudbug, Louisana, she also contributes clues to the solutions to the mysteries.

Jana DeLeon puts in the good twists and turns to the plots that we all expect from good mysteries, but she throws in unique and unusual bits and characters that give us the great laughs. Get ready for more as Helena winds her way through 3 books in this series.

Toss in a Little Romance for More Fun

No these aren’t the Harlequin style romances of past days. Instead, these are charming stories where the private detective ends up dealing with the beautiful potential victim in the murder plot. Nothing steamy here, but certainly enough to satisfy the romantic side.

Although none of these mysteries in the series is really with a woman sleuth, the addition of our ghost-in-law, Helena, makes them definitely women’s mysteries. The male private detectives seem to be added in for the fun and the romance to go along with the mystery.

Jana DeLeon Does It Again

This author is one that we have enjoyed before. She is the creator of the Miss Fortune Mystery Series, another set where mystery and uproarious humor come together. Jana DeLeon certainly hasn’t disappointed us with her Ghost-in-Law series.

What she will come up next is on my watch list. I want to read from this author and will happily share those findings with you. Jana DeLeon is an author worth reading.
