The sequel to In Deep Voodoo. I actually enjoyed this one a little more than the first. The characters were more likable. Of course the coincidence of Gloria Dalton and Zane Riley end up in the same town. The Diane Davidson storyline was also a bit much to take. The series is very open for a third book. However, three years after the last and nothing is forthcoming. Still fun and light.
This was a book I had an incredibly hard time getting through. Usually I can finish a book in like 1.5-2 days, but this took me about 5 days. It was just chock full of problems and not all that interesting. I was really tempted to just stop reading and chuck it back on my bookshelf.

There were a number of critical problems in this book, and right off the bat, I had issues. The book ties in with Bond's previous novel "In Deep Voodoo" in that it takes place in the same town, has common characters,

It's possible I liked this story better than the first. Thanks to the Witness Protection Program, Gloria has plenty of secrets to hide. Chance brings Zane, her beloved boyfriend from her old life, into her life. She's changed so much about herself that he doesn't recognize her even though losing her so unexpectedly was the impetus for his career in law enforcement.

Mojo brings back all of the quirky humor you would expect. You'll meet all sorts of old friends from In Deep Voodoo, and you'll make

Gloria Dalton is one scared puppy. Her mother testified against a crime boss and they were both put into the witness protection program. Years have passed and she is now a lawyer and has recently moved to Mojo, LA. By coincidence, her childhood boyfriend, Zane, also just moved to Mojo as the sheriff.

Murder is running rampant in town and Gloria is present at all the crime scenes and Zane (not knowing who she is) suspects Gloria. It is one mishap after another between the two until Zane figures ou

There's just something about the characters in Mojo that are so lovable. Stephanie Bond does a great job of character building and plot. The book kept me intrigued, as did the first in the series. I look forward to more in the Mojo voodoo series.

Once again with this author I really like the characters and the story is entertaining enough but I find the circumstances unbelievable. A fun read if you don't expect too much.

I really enjoyed both of the Voodoo series books. Interesting stories and characters kept me reading nearly nonstop for 3 days. I look forward to more from this author!
Really, while this book is categorized as a cozy, it actually presents more of a genre-of-all-types book, same as the first book in this duology.  It has a light, casual, comedic air to the story telling that reminds me of a cozy mystery, but the atmosphere will sometimes dip into the darkness that I typically associate with grittier crime thrillers.  Then it includes the steamy sexy times of category romance... while at the same time incorporating fluffy, sweet devices used in contemporary roma ...more

I really enjoy this series. I find it entertaining. A few things made me roll my eyes ( for example, him not taking the voodoo doll for evidence until near the end) but for the most part I enjoy the characters and the little town of Mojo. I think it would be fun to live there minus all the

I really enjoyed my time with this book and these characters--yes, very glad I read the two books in this series back to back!-- but the ending felt a bit rushed and unsatisfying. Pretty anticlimactic, especially considering the high stakes conclusion of the last mystery.

Pros: No one "wet their lips".

Cons: Lots of "rueful noises" were made.

I'll still be very eager to read any potential book 3. I hope we get one!

At one point i was into Stephanie Bond books, but that did not last. I am no longer into these type of books. She is a good author though. My interests have merely changed. I would suggest a person try her books if they like these types of stories
A quick, fun and quirky read.

I’m sad to say Voodoo or Die, the sequel to Stephanie Bond’s In Deep Voodoo, missed its mark.

At the end of Voodoo or Die, there were so many potential mysteries that could’ve been made great stories for a sequel, but instead Bond chose to push those stories aside in favor of introducing a new main character and a new plot.

Deep Voodoo centers around Penny’s lawyer, Gloria Dalton, who has just moved to Mojo to take over Deke’s law practice. Little does everyone know that Gloria Dalton is actually
Debbie Darwine
Oh, give me a break. This story was just implausible and filled with too many ridiculous coincidences. I first began to get annoyed when, minutes after a long reverie about Gloria's high school boyfriend whom she had to leave with no explanation some years ago when she went into the Witness Protection Program (!), said boyfriend just happened to walk into the room. In small-town Louisiana. As the new police chief of the town,Mojo, which Gloria also just moved into. And though she recognizes him ...more

Finding Your Mojo is the sequel to Bond's In Deep Voodoo. It appears that this book has been renamed Voodoo or Die and re-released (perhaps with some editing??). I know that the first chapters are identical, having compared Amazon's "Look inside this book" on their Voodoo or Die listing with the hardcopy of Finding Your Mojo that I own. Confused? I was. I was also disappointed to realize that the existence of this third title did not mean there was a third book in the series. Luckily, I found th ...more
The second in the series set in Mojo, LA, the reader finds attorney Gloria Dalton settling in to her new digs. She's been forced into the Witness Protection Program and has had to leave the boy she first loved, Zane Riley.

However, a welcoming gift--a voodoo doll, natch--worries her and then her male paralegal dies in a car accident. The new Chief of Police investigates, and Gloria is stunned to see that it's Zane. Can Gloria keep her identity concealed from Zane?

Another great story by this author. Loved this one and I'm really disappointed that she appears to have dropped this series as we've got to know all the characters and I really like them and reading all about Mojo. There are so many stories still to be told, I'd expect. I'd like to learn more about Jimmy and Henry and their lives for starters.
I preferred this one to the first in the series. Gloria's tale was a really interesting one. Plus I "know" all the townspeople now.

The heroine was impoverished because her husband committed fraud and absconded with the proceeds, leaving her to live as best she could. Now she's discovered that he's changed his name and is about to marry some other naive woman--committing bigamy. It's her responsibility to travel to Scotland and confront the scoundrel, and rescue the maiden. On the way, her carriage is accosted by Scottish reivers, and she's rescued by a pistol-packing Texan who's come to Scotland to check out a story his fat ...more

Not as good as the first book in the series, but fun if you can get past the fact that the main character should have run screaming from town in the first chapter.

If you are in the Witness Protection Program and you move to a new town to discover your first love is the town Sheriff who has spent the last 15+ years searching for you - time to move on. Add to that murder and the fact that the man you are hiding from has been released from prison AND you are being blackmailed to keep your identity

Recommends it for: lovers of Stephanie Bond's mysteries
FINDING YOUR MOJO is a sequel to IN DEEP VOODOO, another Stephanie Bond romance/mystery I heartily recommend. While FINDING YOUR MOJO does stand alone, it does reference the outcome of the mystery in IN DEEP VOODOO and carries some characters from one book to the other, so I'd recommend reading IN DEEP VOODOO first. It looks like the author is setting us up for more books in the series, and I'm looking forward to them. Mojo is a quirky little Louisuianna town chock full of interesting residents ...more

Overall, I enjoyed this book. The storyline was a bit unrealistic, but if you are able to set all that aside it was a nice story. I read the first in series In Deep Voodoo and really enjoyed it. My only concern with this book is the author kept going on about Gloria and her unrequited feelings for her high school boyfriend. It got tedious and after awhile it being annoying. Overall, I enjoyed the book and hope the author continues with the series. I will definitely continue reading.

To her surprise her high school sweet heart is the new police chief in town. Gloria is in the witness protection program and struggles keeping her secrets in this small town.

After finishing the first book in the series, I immediately purchased this one and was not disappointed. I loved this one even better than the first one mainly because I felt more attached to the romantic story line in this one. I really wanted them to get the happy ending.

The author did a good job of keeping the quirky feel of Mojo but without having to read the first book before reading this one. The supporting characters didn't lose any of their spunk.

The only complaint I have on this book i

This was the second in a series that started with Deep Voodoo. As a rule, Stephanie Bond's books get better as she writes, but this one didn't. It wasn't as good as the first, started slowly and the characters weren't developed well. She seemed to rely on our limited introduction to Gloria in the first book and it just didn't work. I found myself growing impatient with Gloria and her inability to make up her mind about the Witness Protection Program and leaving the town. The ending was just a li ...more

The fine folks of Mojo, LA are at it again! There's something about the new lawyer, Gloria, that she just can't talk about. When the new chief of police responds to the scene of an accident at Gloria's law office, her past comes back in living color. One murder leads to another, which leads to another... The citizens of Mojo are a kooky bunch and I wish that this book was just the second of many. What do you think Ms. Bond? I believe there may just be another mystery or two lurking in Mojo!
Fun story, but the narrator made some choices that didn't always work for me. Her Gloria voice is bad and stuffy sounding, but I think it's supposed to be. She has an obvious Canadian pronunciation most of the time, which is out of place for a story taking place in Louisiana. Also, what's the deal with how she pronounces "garage"? Nails on a chalkboard!

But yeah... the story works. It was a free download when I got it on Kindle, but it would definitely be worth paying for it.

The town of Mojo, LA is small and filled to the brim with eccentrics. There was some bad mojo involving the Museum of Voodoo & Torture that resulted in a search for a new police chief. He's arrived and he's on the job.

The new attorney in town has secrets of her own and a dead man in her office. Voodoo dolls and small town secrets abound.

There are reported to be more books in this series and I can't wait.

Who knew that voodoo could get you...hooked!

I have read Stephanie Bond in the past and loved all of her stories. This voodoo series is awesome! I can't wait for the next one to come out! I love murder mysteries but I also love to laugh and somehow she ties them both together with a nice little bow.
You're amazing Stephanie!!!!
