Voodoo Deadly

by: Sibel Hodge

Available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble

Synopsis:
Feisty insurance investigator Amber Fox is back in her deadliest case ever…

When Chantal Langton, the daughter of a famous voodoo high priestess, goes missing, is it a simple case of a rich girl running off for some adventure, or is there something far more sinister going on?

Soon Amber’s slap bang in the middle of voodoo curses, a trail of missing women, and a labyrinth of deceit. And, if that wasn’t enough, to add more distraction to the case, her ex-fiancĂ©-turned boss-turned fiancĂ© again is pressing her to set the wedding date.

Can Amber find Chantal and hunt down a cold-blooded killer before her life comes crashing down around her?


This is my 3rd Sibel Hodge book that I've read. I've found another favorite! Her writing style is care-free, and she adds so much silliness. But that's just what I've read. She has a serious title out there - Trafficked, Diary of a Sex Slave - which is considered a must read for some college courses...impressive, right?

This is the 3rd book in the Amber Fox mysteries, and it's the first one I read. You don't have to read the first two installments. I think I'd like to, though. But I wasn't lost and nothing was missing. If there was a backstory, she gave a quick synopsis to catch a new reader up.

Voodoo was a component of this story, and while Amber was full of misconceptions, other characters provided more facts. I think Sibel gave a well rounded look into voodoo. Usually a writer just uses the evil side to propel a story, I was impressed.

I never saw the cover until I started writing this review, so I can't say it drew me in. The title and author did that just fine! :) Look at that! Perfect for Valentines Day. And I did read it on that day too. LOL There is the mystery and a bit of a love story too.

I love the quirky mystery-solving ladies, and Amber Fox is my newest favorite. And unlike Stephanie Plum and Barbara Marr, Amber knows what she is doing, having worked as a police officer for 17 years.
