Liz has never bought into the mystical woowoo stuff, so when someone starts sending tarot cards to her best friend's front door she just thinks some punk kids must be up to some pranks. However, Robin isn't so sure are the same cards her husband drew the night before he died. Then threats start showing up with the cards and they know things are more serious than a mere prank. So, Liz enlists the help of her brother's old college roommate, Nick. He just happens to be an occult expert. In the middle of their investigation, Robin becomes the number one suspect in a murder case. Time is not on their side as they rush to find the real killer before Robin loses everything.

To be honest Voodoo elements have never really topped the top of my must read lists as it seemed like a bunch of confusing hocus pocus to me. However, in Who Do, Voodoo things are presented in almost layman's terms, making things a whole lot easier to follow. I think a lot of that had to do with the fact that Liz was completely new to all of it herself, so there were no presumptions already formed to skew things. I really enjoyed seeing Liz's journey from complete disbelief to a resigned acceptance, and finally to almost fully trusting in the unknown. I think part of her will always be a little skeptical, but at least she seemed to open up a little in the end.

While the majority of this book is more on the serious side, there is some humor as well. Specifically in the form of Liz's mother. Trust me this woman is a quack. When talking to Liz about her brother she feels she must remind Liz that he is her brother AND his name is Dave. Seriously, she says "your brother, Dave" each and every time. Plus she has this obsession with reuniting Liz with her cheating, alcoholic ex.

Psychologist Liz Cooper's best friend is being terrorized by tarot cards! Liz thinks it's a sick prank but her friend, Robin, is taking it very seriously. After all, those same tarot cards predicted her husband's untimely death. There's no way Robin wasn't going to be worried, she has a daughter to think about.

Liz looks to her older brother's best friend, Nick, for help. He's very familiar with the occult and the supernatural community. Together, they desperately try to find the answers to help Robin. When a dead body turns up and Robin is the prime suspect, they know they have to step up their efforts and clear Robin's name once and for all.

I can't believe this is the first book by this author. It's amazing, to say the least! I loved every minute of it. I felt as if I was on an emotional ride with the heroine. I was desperately trying to figure out who was behind the murder and I was wrong (I'm usually right about these things - LOL). It's a fast-paced, murder mystery that will definitely leave readers wanting more.

The characters were realistically portrayed and characters you could be sympathetic towards (or hate, depending on the character). I never wanted to put this book down and was very sad the story was over. This is cozy mystery to perfection!

Rochelle Staab's 'Who Do, Voodoo?' is a great debut novel for a series of books I look forward to reading in the future.
I struggled with either to give this review a 3 out of 5 or a 4 out of 5. I enjoyed it but I felt if anything it deserved a 3.5.

Now don't get me wrong I think the premise and the characters are wonderful and I think the execution overall was sound however I did have a few minor issues which I think held it back from being a 5 star review.

Firstly, as I started reading the first few chapters I couldn't really 'get into' the book. I felt the introduction was a little shaky and as such it didn't grab me straight away. I'm glad though that I kept going because very soon I found myself starting to get sucked into the world of Liz Cooper.

Secondly, I felt that the 'quirk' of Liz's mother saying "Your brother Dave" to introduce the character and then throughout the novel was slightly forced. I remember reading it and thinking 'maybe Rochelle wasn't sure how to go about bringing the character in and acknowledging that Liz and Dave are siblings'.

Thirdly, throughout the novel (especially on page 36-37) there seems to a be misrepresentation of the theme of 'Voodoo' and 'Hoodoo'. In the novel Nick Garfield (who is a religious philosophy professor and occult expert) says that Hoodoo is Voodoo black magic etc. Now the issue I had is that Hoodoo, although a cousin of sorts to Voodoo, is essentially folk magic. The two may have similarities but they are different nonetheless. This may sound like a trivial thing to speak about in a review but nevertheless since the character of Nick was an expert on the occult I assumed that such a mix up wouldn't occur.
