This fun romance continues the entertaining series that blends the flavor of life in the bayou with glimpses of more of the intriguing characters introduced in “Voodoo on the Bayou”. The arcane addition of spells combined with the quirky formation of a true ‘love bug’ give a cute twist to a story that has a combination of humor and complicated emotional ties. A different perspective on the LeBieu women gradually unfolds and a lesson about the dangers of meddling in powers that are stronger than one can handle is skillfully depicted. I enjoyed this light read and look forward to reading the upcoming third volume in the series, “Deja Voodoo”.
“Voodoo For Two” by Elle James is part of the ‘Cajun Magic’ series set in the picturesque bayou country and features one of the granddaughters of revered Voodoo Queen Madame LeBieu, Lucie LeBieu. Lucie has never been adept at making spells but that doesn’t stop her desperate ploy to create a love potion to solve the money problems she is dealing with. Unfortunately, former love Benjamin Franklin Boyette’s decision to come back to to the bayou after seven years is not supposed to factor into her plans to ensnare Eric Littington, but there’s magic and then there’s true magic, if Lucie can figure out how to distinguish between the two.
Be careful what you wish for… Determined to marry the most eligible bachelor in the parish to save her family, Lucie LeBieu turns a “love bug” loose to cast its Voodoo spell. What she doesn’t count on is hitting two targets—the golden boy congressional candidate and her Cajun-hot ex. To set things right, she must undo the spell before she falls into bed—and back in love—with a certain down and dirty heartbreakin' cop or breaks another man's heart. Undercover investigator Ben Boyette is back in Louisiana on special assignment when he runs across his old flame, brewing up trouble as usual. But when hometown threats turn deadly, Lucie's life is on the line. Determined to protect both her and his politician assignment from falling victim to a murderer, Ben finds that he's the one who's falling hard for the irresistible bayou temptress.
