Goodreads/Library Thing

Los Angeles psychologist Liz Cooper shuns the supernatural until her best friend discovers mysterious tarot cards tacked to her front door—the same cards drawn in a tarot reading the night before a death two years earlier. To track the harasser, Liz teams up with occult expert Nick Garfield on a journey leading to murder and a voodoo curse. Liz is forced to question logic and set aside her doubts to unravel otherworldly secrets—or risk being outwitted by a cunning killer.

First Thought when Finished: Who Do, Voodoo? is a super fun read with just the right amount of mystery!

What I Thought of the Case: Who Do, Voodoo? is centered around Robin (Liz’s BF) being suspected for a murder that she did not commit. I thought Liz and Nick made a pretty good crime-solving team. Nick was very knowledgeable and patient with Liz. Liz was a very good reader of people and pretty logical. The case was a little twisty/turny and had a wide variety of suspects. The Voodoo aspect was fun and really well researched. I had fun reading it though towards the end it was a little predictable.

What I Thought of the Characters: Here is where I think Rochelle Staab shined. Nick and Liz were great leading characters. I have a thing for smart, geeky, hot men and Nick fit that bill to a tee! Liz was no slouch either and was smart as a whip. They worked really well together. I really liked all the side-characters too except Robin. I am hoping that Robin grows on me if she is in future books. Liz’s mom, brother, and the Voodoo Group were all very well-rounded characters. They each added something to the story. In the end, I am hoping we get to see all of them in future installments!

Final Thoughts: Who Do, Voodoo was a charming debut Cozy Mystery and I can’t wait to read Liz’s further adventures.
