A Date with a Book

I love reading and you will always catch me with a book. While I love all mysteries and romances, I am particularly stuck on Cozy Mysteries.

In Deep Voodoo - Stephanie Bond I chose this book from my free downloads for the Kindle. This was a really fun and quick read. There is plenty of laugh out loud moments all the way to the end.I enjoyed all of the characters in this book. Penny is the main character and while she helps solve the mystery, she is not portrayed as a “true amateur sleuth” in this book. She kind of takes side notes with B.J. the PI who is visiting town working on missing persons cases. Penny has a few secrets herself. Penny owns a health food store and has some great friends that work for her. Marie and Guy are the main workers. Guy is gay, or at least he hasn’t learned that yet, and Marie has fun trying to liven up Penny’s life. Several town people visit the store, some on a daily basis, others more frequent, who add spice to the mystery and fun. My favorite thing about this book was that it wasn’t your typical cozy mystery or romance. It had mystery. It had the ingredients of a cozy mystery. It had the romance, and at times was quite steamy. However, the author has done an amazing job of blending these things together in a very different way than “usual”.
