Summary

Hetta Coffey is a sassy Texan with a snazzy yacht, and she's not afraid to use it - most of the time.
She's an intrepid cruiser, but wild rumors of marauding gangs of flesh-shredding giant Humboldt squid on a rampage in the Sea of Cortez could keep even Hetta tied to an expensive dock. However, when the opportunity for an intriguing and highly lucrative charter arises she talks her best friend, Jan, into signing on for a mysterious cruise.
Damn the calamari! Full bank account ahead!

Why, oh why don't boats have brakes?

Not having read a Hetta Coffey book before (this is book 7) but intrigued by the cover and wooed by the voice of the narrator, I requested and was given a complimentary copy of Just Different Devils, without any obligation, by the rights holder via Audiobook Boom. Thank you so much: I have now discovered a new and excellent series to explore.

Completely standalone, the reader meets Hetta and friend Jan, plus dizzy dog No Thant and a dolphin they call Bubbles off the coast of Mexico. (Yes, lots of others, too. Naughty, old enough to know better, all of them.) Hetta is offered, and accepts, a profitable job to take out an anonymous client on her beloved boat for a month. Trouble is, there have been reports of people being attacked and killed in the area by giant squids. But this job will pay out a lot of money, so...
Surprise. The client is someone she knows only too well.

A good mystery story with fabulous characters (colourful and not quite honest), funny, cheeky and great dialogue, all performed with a delicious Texan accent by narrator, Stevie Puckett. So absorbed in the production, this reader barely noticed if the individual characters were voiced distinctively (so I guess they were!) other than wincing slightly at her dreadful Scottish accent for the attractive bagpipe playing man who moors his boat next to hers. But what did that matter? It was all tremendous fun.

A sniff of the sea, a frolic with a dolphin, friends united on the slightly seedy side of honest - delicious fun. Recommended.

Loved It

This was the first book in the Hetta Coffey Series that I read and I must say that 'Just Different Devils' is a fantastic stand alone story within the series. The characters that Jinx Schwartz has created in this series are just too much fun. A nice mix of true friendship, intrigue, action, danger, confusion and greed, this story has all of the things you'd want! My favorite part of this tale was the relationship between dog and dolphin. It just goes to show you that love knows no bounds! I would recommend this series to people who enjoy a bit of comedy and drama with their mysteries!

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Po Thang Meets Bubbles--A Tail of Two Species

I've been really enjoying a lot of audiobooks of late--engaging the brain while the body is otherwise occupied doing such mundanities as laundry, cleaning, shoveling snow . . . I started in on "Just Different Devils," the very first book I've read by Jinx Schwartz, and was immediately caught up in a FEMALE heroine off on the same sorts of hijinks usually reserved in thrillers to the male of the species. Occasionally bordering on the slapstick, Hetta Coffey, a forty-year-old adventuress who is living on a boat near Baja, Mexico, gets involved in a string of events with her dog, Po Thang, and an assorted group of friends with whom she's clearly had many an adventure in the past. We are treated to some delightful female bonding plus all the derring do and action of a Bruce Willis flick (Brucetta?), well narrated by Stevie Puckett who clearly has an ear for Scottish, Texan, and Spanish inflections.
