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.

Humorous and exciting at the same time, a novelty for today’s books. Great characters and a nice plot. Only drawback was the continuing lie about chemical and oil companies portrayed in a bad light. I can refute the lies 10 times to Sunday if anyone will make the charges in public. Idiot authors should know better than get on a wagon with only three wheels.
Too bad it's so homophobic
This was a fairly well-written book up until the point at which several homophobic remarks were made by characters within a few pages. Even if it's set in the South, we've still entered the 21st century, where these kinds of remarks are unwelcome and seen for the bigoted nonsense they are-unnecessary to move the plot along or develop characters.
Love this book
I read this book about 7 times.. I love the plot and the story line!! And the sex was not distasteful..
