Who Do Voodoo? (A Mind for Murder Mystery) [Paperback]

I've finished "Who Do Voodoo? the 1st book in her Mind for Murder Mystery series by Rochelle Staab.

Product Description

WHO DO, VOODOO? the first novel in Rochelle's thrilling new Mind for Murder Mystery series features no - nonsense Liz Cooper, a Los Angeles psychologist forced to embrace the occult to clear her best friend of murder ...

When Liz Cooper's friend Robin Bloom finds an unusual tarot card tacked to her front door, Liz writes it off as a prank. Robin refuses to ignore the omen — her late husband drew the same card, the three of swords, in a reading the night before he was killed in a car accident. As more cards and darker threats appear, Liz realizes someone very dangerous is upping the ante.

Liz turns to her brother's ex-college roommate, occult expert Nick Garfield. As Nick leads her into the voodoo community to locate the origin of the deck, she can't ignore their attraction to each other. Then a woman is found murdered and Robin becomes the prime suspect. Determined to clear her friend, Liz joins forces with Nick to unravel otherworldly secrets and seek help from beyond — or risk being outwitted by a cunning killer ...

My Review:

I have always been fascinated by the Haitian and New Orleans Voodoo religious practices and know some of the stuff that happens but I learned more after reading this book!

I highly recommend this book if you like a spunky psychologist and a hunky occult expert in a fast paced and well written cozy murder mystery full of supernatural elements.

Liz's friend Robin has found threatening tarot cards on her door the same ones her husband drew the night before his car crash.  She gets Robin to call the cops but apparently they aren't doing anything about it.

Her brother introduces her to his best friend Nick Garfield a professor and familiar with the supernatural and occult religion.  They decide to work together to help Robin figure out who is threatening her.  Then a dead body is found and Robin is arrested and is the prime suspect.  Now Liz is determined to prove that Robin is innocent.

This book had some quirky characters especially Liz's mom who would try to set her up again with her ex-husband.  I laughed at the scenes where Liz where hang up on her mom!
