Review

What readers are saying about MANGROVES AND MONSTERS:

Mangroves and Monsters... WOW. A fabulous addition to the story!! I love, love, love the twists. The feeling like I should be somewhere too hot and humid for my comfort. I found the Caribbean to be quite lovely from my couch. There is so much more to put into a review, but I dare not giveaway *any* of the story! ~ Jody, Goodreads.com

A good, fun read! ~ Carrie, Goodreads.com

A new plot twist on every page. ~ Ann Crutchfield, Florida USA

If you love a good romance and good mystery, you get it all right here. ~ Wendy Hill, North Carolina USA

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

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.

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

It is a mystery type of book, it has a bit of romance, and of course a murder.

Love how she still carries on the story lines with the characters but brings new life to them.

Sharon Pennington's newest novel whisks the reader to a tropical paradise where the hunt for lost love and a maniacal killer races to a page turning climax. Old love rekindles, new love sparks, and ever-present danger lurks in the shadows. Well developed characters and palpable tension make Mangroves and Monsters a must read.

I purchased this book on my Kindle after reading the first novel in the series Hoodoo Money. This sequel did not disappoint! The story continues on with the characters taking them to the Caribbean. The author has written a well-crafted novel with exciting plots and a cast of fully-developed characters. The descriptions of the lush tropical island setting are on target. This is another first-class romantic suspense from an extremely talented writer. Hope to read more from this author.

Just as exciting as the first book and you find out so much more about these characters. The story continues on with their troubles with The Dutchman and there's so much going on you can't put it down. Read It in one afternoon, that's how good it is, but you should read the first one or you will be lost (Hoodoo Money) , that's the first book, it's exciting and as page turning. Great Job Sharon., I do hope we have more from these characters soon.

I really enjoyed this story and found it fast-paced and exciting from start to finish. I found the characters to be well developed and realistic. I also loved the island setting, very exotic and full of mystery & menace. A great story and I do believe it has surpassed the first book in the series. I will definitely be looking for the next installment. Thanks to the author for her generosity in sending this ebook my way, in exchange for an honest review.

MANGROVES AND MONSTERS (The Stolen Nickel Series) by Sharon Cupp Pennington
The story takes place on the Caribbean island of Jacqueme Dominique. It is a mystery type of book, it has a bit of romance, and of course a murder. I did blush while reading certain parts but it was not inappropriate for the scene.
The main Characters of the story are Charlie Cooper (also called Coop), Angeline St. Cyr, Brent St. Cyr, and Kat.
I could not pick just one favorite character as all the characters in the book were well developed and I came to care for all the characters.
After the first book the second was easier to understand what the writer was doing. I liked how it wasn’t just told from one point of view and you got to see in side all the main characters. I was not able to home in on who the bad person (I’m not saying who it is) was and only figured it out as the main characters did. Although I will say my gut was screaming at me something was not right with a couple of the characters. Also Willem Voorhees does make an appearance.
I felt every emotion that the characters felt. Even though I have never lost a child or someone I loved I was able to understand a little of what they were going through, I could feel everything the characters were feeling and it was very refreshing. I did cry and laugh and want to shot someone, so the author did a great job of pulling you into the book. This book was a page turner and once I got started I had a very hard time putting the book down.
I cannot wait to read the next book in the series as this one left me wanting more.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries, romance, or someone who just want a good read!

This is a great sequel to Hoodoo Money, and takes off just as it should. Love how she still carries on the story lines with the characters but brings new life to them.

The sequel to Voodoo Money did not disappoint this reader. I can't wait for the third novel in the series to become available. Sharon C. Pennington has a gift for plot and character development while taking the reader on a thrilling tour of beautiful places. The setting of this second novel proves that she has an eye for detail that is amazing. You feel yourself being placed into lovely scenery. I really want to know which characters will become the main focus of her third book, and hope it is out by Christmas. If you enjoy J A. Jance, Sue Grafton, and Kathy Reichs you will also want to read Sharon C. Pennington.
