Superstitious . . . straight-laced children's author Braeden McKay? Leprechauns and cluricans and the kissin' of the Blarney? For sure and certain, she believes! Braeden is three-quarters Irish after all. She dutifully keeps the woven cross of Saint Brigid attached to the wall above her bed. And by all that stands right and t

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?

Braeden, children's book author and Angeline, supermodel are best friends. Braeden has accompanied Angeline to New Orleans for her friend's latest shoot. Then Braeden is mugged. And Angeline is involved in a car accident, though evidence suggests foul pl
Braeden McKay a popular children’s author and her friend, Angeline St. Cyr are in New Orleans. Unfortunately for Braeden being in New Orleans is not all fun as it is also a working vacation for Braeden. While out and about visiting different places in the Big Easy, Angeline takes a nickel from the grave of Simone Dubois, who was known for being a gypsy hoodoo woman. If only Braeden had known than what she knows now, she would have stopped Angeline from taking that coin. Ever since that day thing ...more
Normally I would not pick up an adult novel but this book sounded interesting enough so I bought it on my kindle. I always loved the setting of New Orleans and I think Sharon C. Pennington did a great job on really showing the charm and also the dark side of the city. What made me not give full stars is just the fact since the title is Hoodoo Money I thought there would be a lot more hoodoo, rituals, creepy elements in the story instead of just the main character Angeline picking up a nickel off ...more

I shouldn't have waited so long to review this but time being what it is - there just isn't enough of it to get everything done. Hoodoo Money was good, but I would say it was more focused on the romance and relationships than the mystery. It's not deterrent to reading it - just not exactly what I was looking for at the time I read it. I would say, if the reader is looking for something primarily a romance with a bit of mystery/intrigue/action, this is it, four stars. I was just hoping for someth ...more

I picked this book up at before I went on my summer vacation. Read it in 2 days! I do not want to give any plot spoilers but it was a very unique plot! I really love how the book started off with one of the main characters picking up a coin in a cemetary. I will think twice before I pick up loose coins on the road! Mystery, romance, friendships, and believable characters! I know the author is writing another book because she is my MOM!!
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. It took me all of one day to start and finish HooDoo.
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.

I bought this book after being told the author is my husbands co-workers wife. We were on a road trip to NoLa, so I thought what the heck. Could not put it down! Very pleasantly surprised, great read!
Dec 13, 2010 Sharon rated it 5 of 5 stars  ·  (Review from the author)  ·  review of another 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 f ...more

Braeden McKay travels to the Big Easy with her best childhood friend Angeline St. Cyr, a supermodel on location. After Angeline pockets a nickel from the grave of a hoodoo gypsy, all hell breaks loose. After she experiences a car accident, the loss of Angeline, and the threat of a stalker, a distraught Braeden meets detective Sanderson Montgomery, a man who believes her fears when no one else will. This tale is gripping. The author paints characters bigger than life and a story hard to put down. ...more
I've been reading so many paranormal books that I'd forgotten how much I enjoy a good romantic mystery novel. Picked this one up because I know of the author and I enjoy New Orleans storylines. I wasn't disappointed.

Like most writers, I always had a brain bursting with scenarios and a . . . drawer, shoebox, folder . . . of unfinished manuscripts. My first published story, "McTammany's Bed of Roses," appeared online in The Emporium Gazette, Issue 46, February 2003. With that sale, I earned enough to buy a novel in the paperback section at Wal-Mart or a couple of trade-ins at the local paperback swap-n-shop.
