Book Description

After her almost-wedding to a bigamist, successful children's author Braeden McKay has given up on love. She's content to live vicariously through her imaginary heroine, Platypus Pearl, and a gaggle of adventurous, web-footed cohorts - until a working vacation in New Orleans shakes up her quiet, structured world. Had she known that souvenir nickel stolen from the grave of a hoodoo woman would catapult her into a nightmare of betrayal and murder, she would have insisted her friend put it back. Cursed nickel or unfortunate happenstance? Sanderson Montgomery isn't one to discount the supernatural beliefs of others. This is the Big Easy, after all, Mecca to the spiritual and the superstitious. As a veteran detective, neither does he ignore cold, hard fact. And the fact is, someone or something is bent on harming Braeden McKay, and it's up to him to protect her while keeping his heart out of the mix. Can love, the very thing Braeden wants no part of, be the one force greater than any adversary - even a hoodoo curse?


Editorial Reviews

Review

What readers are saying about HOODOO MONEY:

If you love really evil bad guys, spooky settings, and a story that will keep you wondering all the way to the end, you will love Hoodoo Money! I hope Ms. Pennington has more planned like this book because this book just whets my appetite. ~ Stevi B, Reviewer, Manic Readers

Is it really a hoodoo curse? Or is there something else that can explain the series of tragedies that dog Braeden McKay's every step after her best friend, Angeline St Cyr takes a nickel from the grave of a hoodoo woman in a New Orleans cemetery? This is an intricate, engrossing romantic suspense. Moving from New Orleans to Galveston it is brilliantly paced with an intriguing, multi-layered plot and a host of well-developed characters. Cleverly written, taut, suspenseful with believable dialogue, some really humorous characters and situations, and not one, but two realistically written heroes. ~ Jill, Goodreads.com

Braeden and Angeline are in New Orleans on a working vacation when Angeline takes a souvenir nickel from the grave of a hoodoo gypsy. What follows next is a twisting and turning tale of murder and love. This will keep you turning pages to get to the end, I sat up late to finish this one. ~ Theresa N, Goodreads.com

From the Author

One of my earliest fiction heroines was Nancy Drew. I couldn't get enough of her. Nancy was self-confident and clever and always, ALWAYS eyeball deep in trouble. Oddly, she was the direct opposite of me. Hoodoo Money is the kind of romantic suspense novel I loved to read then, and still do. Hopefully, I've succeeded in filling its pages with enough mystery to spark the imagination and ample romance to stir the heart. With a dose of sizzle thrown in for good measure.

5.0 out of 5 stars HOODOO MONEY STRIKES IT RICH July 22, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
Sharon Cupp Pennington's debut novel strikes it rich in Hoodoo Money. Love, culture, setting and a brilliantly crafted mystery plot make this a one-day, can't-set-it-down, page turner. With heroes to die for and evil lurking from all corners of New Orleans and Galveston, Hoodoo Money contains all the ingredients for a summer beach read or a cozy day in front of a fire. Either way, you won't put it down until the last page. I've read it, I own it, and I don't intend to let someone borrow it for fear I won't get it back. - C. Hope Clark, [...]

5.0 out of 5 stars The cost of true love July 21, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
Pennington's book is a breath of fresh air in the genre. Her subtle yet uncompromising characters weave a unique story of unrequited desire, power and lust, which spiral into self-fulfillment, the hope of love, ultimate loss and murder. Every facet of the human condition is painted skillfully across the broad canvas of a vibrant and often dark New Orleans, where curses are weighed on a single nickel - or are they? A pure delight to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fall in Love with Hoodoo Money August 13, 2008
Format:Paperback
Romance, intrigue, a possible curse...what more could I ask for! Hoodoo Money was so much fun. The rich New Orleans setting and falling in love relationships added to the mystery and charm of the book, and I couldn't put it down until I turned the last page. Sharon Cupp Pennington has written a top notch story. I fell in love with the main characters and can't wait for her next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars BJ.KIBBLE 'AUTHOR' January 14, 2010
Format:Paperback
Pennington knows how to create living, breathing characters and sets. I usually only stick to thrillers, which is my own forte, but this mystery/romance novel was a dream to read simply because I couldn't put it down until I knew the ending. LOL.

More About the Author

Sharon Cupp Pennington's love of mysteries is rooted in a gazillion bicycle excursions to her local library as a girl, and hours spent sitting on the floor in back aisles surrounded by books. Trying to decide which three or four would go home in her bike's basket. If a new Nancy Drew novel appeared on those shelves, all the better. She'd found the day's treasure.

Here are a few of the fun things readers are saying about her books:

Hoodoo Money was like ice cream. I just couldn't put it down! Every time I looked up from my Kindle I couldn't fathom why I wasn't in New Orleans, or Galveston. I could feel the heat, taste the mugginess. AND your mouthwatering descriptions of all those foods! OMG! Could I get a kitchen, please? I absolutely ate up the ending - and then it was gone. ~ Jodi, Goodreads.com

Braeden and Angeline are in New Orleans on a working vacation when Angeline takes a souvenir nickel from the grave of a hoodoo gypsy. What follows next is a twisting and turning tale of murder and love. This will keep you turning pages to get to the end, I sat up late to finish this one. ~ Theresa N, Goodreads.com

I picked this book up last night and sat down to read the whole thing in one night. I have not read a good mystery in a while and this qualified. The setting was beautifully described and the character development was deep. I really felt I could picture each of Pennington's interesting characters. The action moved very fast and there were some surprises towards the end. A good, fun read! ~ Carrie, Goodreads.com

A new plot twist on every page: A mystery and a romance novel all in one book. Every time I thought I had the mystery solved, the author threw in another twist . . . right up to the final pages! ~ Ann Crutchfield, Florida USA
