Who Do Voodoo by Rochelle Staab
(Mind over Murder Series #1)
Clinical psychologist Liz Cooper doesn't believe in ghosts. But when her best friend finds a tarot card tacked to her front door-and is then accused of murder-Liz will have to find a way to embrace the occult if she wants to outwit the real killer...
Let Staab's debut cast a spell over your readers with its spirited pace, likable heroine, and Los Angeles backdrop. This is light, romantic suspense featuring first-person narration by psychologist Liz Cooper, whose best friend, Robin, is being stalked and hexed by an unknown assailant. But then the girlfriend of Robin's boss is murdered, and Robin becomes the prime suspect based on an argument witnessed by many. Garnering the assistance of a handsome, single professor who knows all things occult, BFF Liz digs in. When the curses increase and spells need to be broken, count on her to see it through. Mix in a mother who reads tarot, a brother who is with the LAPD, and a steady patter of classic film references. VERDICT Staab sets her fairly sophisticated blend of the occult in a flashy West Coast locale for great escape reading. Fans of Juliet Blackwell and Rebecca M. Hale will get a kick out of this one.
