Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

When Deke Black is stabbed through the heart with a lawn stake, the secrets of Mojo, La., start bursting to the fore in this lively first of a new romantic mystery trilogy from Rita Award–winner Bond (Whole Lotta Trouble). Deke's ex, health-food store owner Penny Francisco, is the primary suspect. Not only was she found at the scene of the crime holding the murder weapon but, at her divorce celebration, she stabbed a voodoo doll bearing Deke's likeness. The police are keen to pin the crime on Penny, and only sexy, junk-food-loving PI B.J. Beaumont may be able to keep her out of jail. It's hard to sympathize with Penny, whose troubles often stem from her own stupidity, and harder still to believe that she could fall in love with B.J. while suspecting him of murder. Despite these flaws, Mojo and its zany, likable inhabitants—from a slutty, lawsuit-happy tanning-salon owner to a randy, 109-year-old woman into voodoo magic—form a solid foundation for future books in the series.

Product Description

IN DEEP VOODOO is a fun romantic mystery that will cast a spell on you!

Start with bad mojo, add a pinprick of revenge, and watch things boil over...

There's something strange afoot in the small touristy town of Mojo, Louisiana. Yet even as the annual voodoo festival gets underway, Penny Francisco refuses to believe in black magic. Her thoughts are on the Victorian house across the street from her health food business--her lying, cheating ex-husband Deke is having the house that she restored painted pink! Isn't it enough that he moved in his busty mistress and Penny has a front row seat to all their shenanigans? At her divorce party Penny receives a "Deke" voodoo doll as a gag gift, and vents her frustration by stabbing it with a pin as a joke. But later when Deke is found stabbed to death, Penny doesn't have to be told she's managed to land herself IN DEEP VOODOO.

4.0 out of 5 stars They're in Love? May 6 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I really enjoyed this book, but it's not much of a romance. It's full of sexy and sinister secrets, compelling hints and lots of humor. I found Roxann and Joe completely likeable and respectable. Unfortunately, there is such a little part in this book for Joe and she is so good at blocking the few advances he makes that when she and Joe fall in love, you find yourself asking, "Where was I?" But buy the book, anyway. Stephanie Bond moves the story forward at a good clip and with firm control, keeping you reading and wondering and feeling fairly satisfied that all the pieces of her complex puzzle fit so nicely together. All but the romance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! July 9 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was my first book by Stephanie Bond and all I can say is "WOW"! The characters were witty, funny, and clever. The characters are those whom you can relate with. I found myself thinking, "Hey, I know someone like that". I laughed out loud a few times, earning a curious look from my family.
The suspense was literally killing me! Who murdred Marge Campbell? I could not put the book down! I was captivated and practically obsessed in finding out. I read the book for twelve straight hours (the family had to fend for themselves, dinner? I snapped, "order a pizza" the kids fighting? I hid in my room and locked it. Yeah, I guess I was obsessed! LOL)
Could it be Julian, the reporter, Belinda, the main character? Belinda's carpool/work friends? Libby, Carole, or Rosemary? All had motive to kill the hated Marge Campbell, nobody like the cruel woman. Are Belinda and Wade, the sexy police officer going to hook up or what? (aka "Officer Goodbody" as dubbed by Libby). Then "wow" once it was revealed who killed Marge Campbell, I was stunned! Usually, I piece things together before it is revealed "who done it" and most of the time I have it figured out before I even finish the last chapter. But "wow" I didn't even "think" about this person! Great story! Fast paced, never a dull moment! Will hold your attention to the very end and maybe a little obsessed...LOL Enjoy!

3.0 out of 5 stars Enough with the 'Yilks"! Jan. 3 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I could have enjoyed this never-intended-to-be-serious romp more except for one thing. About one third of the way through the book I becane distracted by the excessive repetition of the same phrases applied to numerous different characters. All the characters regularly 'squint', 'smirk', bite the inside of their cheeks or push their cheeks out with the tongue. The most frequently used chracteristic (both men and women) was to "purse his (or her) mouth". The frequent use of the word 'yilk' (yilk???) was also very offputting because it just felt so juvenile. Finally, I couldn't stand it any longer: imagining all these people with pursed lips, poking their tongues into their cheeks, squinting and smirking in all kinds of given situations,just stopped me from enjoying the tale. Where was the author's editor in all this excess? I ended up book-marking 59 such references, and that was far from all of them. I'm sure the tale was fun, but for me it became a chore to read it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Light mystery... Oct. 9 2012
By Pat the cat TOP 1000 REVIEWER
This book was more like a modern romance than a murder mystery with lots of internal dialogue by the main heroine about her feelings and what others think (what I call "blablabla"). It seems to be the 2nd book in a trilogy. I don't think that it was essential but I think that it would have been beneficial to have read the first book in the series. It's clear that the story continues in a 3rd book but, I don't think that I will bother to keep going because of the boring blablabla and the lack of mystery...That said, there were some sexy men in this romance and a few steamy scenes! Lots of characters but not enough development; just broad strokes. The reference to Body Movers in the title has nothing to do with the kind of mortuary stories of the TV series Six Feet Under... In this book, it plays a very small role. I give it 3 stars out of five for the romance but less for the murder mystery (more like 2.5).

4.0 out of 5 stars Memorable Characters March 19 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Roxanne and her dimwitted cousin, Angora, are very well drawn. You can get frustrated with bimbo Angora, but it makes perfect sense for her to be the way she is with her shallow, overbearing mother and superficial "country club" lifestyle. Love the pictures the author draws of Angora and her mom!
Capistrano is a delicious character, as well, and Roxanne's vacillation is very believable, given the hunkiness of this detective and the non-self-acceptance of Roxanne.
There were a few flaws, like when Roxanne dumps coffee on Capistrano and gets fired from her waitressing job. First of all, this is more than a firing offence, it's assualt & battery! Secondly, Capistrano wouldn't yelp, then brush it off, jogging alongside Roxanne not long after. Still, the characters grab you and keep you going!

Realtor Jolie Goodman quit her job over her new boss demanding she do an unethical act in order to make a sale. Jolie temporarily sells shoes at the Nieman Marcus in Atlanta's Lenox Mall. There she meets Beck Underwood of Underwood Broadcasting, who needs socks and shoes having just returned from Central America. The duo is attracted to one another, but nothing comes of it not jus because she is working, but police Detective Salyers arrives to question Jolie about her missing boyfriend Gary Hagan, whose car was found in the Chattahoochee with a dead woman inside.
The police suspect that Jolie abetted Gary in his escape though she denies involvement. As Detective Salyers searches for Gary, he quietly warns Jolie to watch herself as he is in danger and she might be. Meanwhile she runs into Beck at an event that she crashes and soon they begin to fall in love. However, after Gary, she has doubts about her taste in men besides which she is in danger from people who believe she has something of Gary's that they want at any cost.
Though the police procedural-Gary subplot in many ways takes center stage and the conspiracy behind all this is overdone, the contemporary romance between Jolie and Beck is well written and cleverly interwoven with the case. The support cast adds depth especially those co-workers like the ultra-tall long necked professional party crasher who mentors the heroine in the arts of attending celebrity events for free. Fans will appreciate this mixing of humor and love within in a crime thriller while attending an advanced class in Party Crashing 301.

2.0 out of 5 stars a romance novel, not all that humorous
I was looking for a mystery with comedy, as implied by the description, but this was a romance novel with pretensions to mystery.

I have read many of Stephanie's books and have enjoyed all of them. She attracted me to her stories because of her last name was My maiden name but we had an "E". Bonde
