One Spell…Double the Trouble...

Determined to marry the most eligible bachelor in the parish to save her family, Lucie LeBieu turns a love bug loose to cast its Voodoo spell. What she doesn't count on is hitting two targets—the golden boy congressional candidate, Eric Littington and her Cajun-hot ex, Ben Boyette. She has to undo the spell in order to set things straight before she falls back in bed—and in love—with a certain down and dirty heartbreaker.

Undercover investigator Ben Boyette is on special assignment to discover who is threatening Littington when he runs across his old flame, Lucie, cooking up trouble. Again. And when threats turn deadly, Lucie is caught in the middle. Can Ben find a way to protect the politician from falling victim to a killer and himself from falling for the irresistible bayou temptress?

Note: This book was published by Entangled Publishing in 2013
Love is messy as proven by this story. Lesson learned: communication is essential. Confusion, misunderstanding, and good intentions but poor execution caused many problems in the town of Bayou Miste. Lucie's life was a tangled mess. Funny, yes, but painful also. Lucie's life does take a turn. Yay Ben!

One of my favorite authors although these are not as good as her Navy Seal series, they are good in their own way.

Lucie LeBieu has had it with being called the Bayou Miste's Swamp Princess. She is past ready to get out of the swamp and move into a mansion far from here. When a foreclosure notice is served on her grandmother Lucie decides to snag wealthy Eric Littington, local congressional candidate for herself and save her grandmother's home as well. When her ex-fiancé returns she decides there is no time to waste as decides to use the lessons her Grandmother, the local Voodoo Queen Madam LeBieu, has been giving her and her twin sister Lisa since they were young girls. Using Madam LeBieu's spell book she makes a love potion, using substitutions when needed. Her friends' warnings and request not to do it go unheeded. When she cast her spell it gets out of hand and suddenly she has more than one suitor and Bayou Miste has people making goo-goo eyes at one another. What is a girl suppose to do? The more Eric acts like he care for her the worse Lucie feels and what about Pascale's jealousy and Ben's steaming kisses. How can she get the spell back under control? What is Grandmere going to do when she finds out what she has done?

There is no holding this series back. Elle James has a style of writing that ties the romance and suspense in her story with a thread of humor. Once you open page one you will not want to put this book down. Although this is the second book in the series it can easily be read as a standalone. The references to book one, Voodoo in the Bayou are few and just enough to keep you from being lost as you read. Fast moving with characters that you will love. I don't know about living in Bayou Miste, but I would definitely rent a cottage from Joe Thibodeaux, spend some time with Alex, the Boyette family, and especially spend some time with Madame LeBieu and listen to her stories about life on the Bayou. Another 5 star winner. One more week and book three, Déjà Voodoo will be here. This series is the first of Ms. James I have read, but it will not be the last.

What a good time in the bayou with the steam factor. Love that we go back to Bayou Miste in book 2 for more Voodoo times in the bayou.
Poor Lucie , she really wants out of Bayou Miste and has been for awhile. With BFF likes hers, they help her concoct of a plot to get her out and get her to where she wants to go. But the bad news it doesn’t work the way it was supposed to and now all sorts of mischief is happening. Mischief like Lucie and her ex-boyfriend Ben being matched back up together. LOL Anything can happen in the bayou. Ben is her love from years ago but due to what he termed her rejection of him, he left her. There is more to the back story so you really need to read book 1—suffice to say, you will love Ben…I did NOT like Eric for Lucie. That is who she is dating in the beginning of the book..Maybe, just maybe Lucie did something right with her voodoo magic (smile)
My only difficulty is the story seem to come in starts and stops. The flow was there and would stop. I also wanted more HEAT between Ben and Lucie. It seemed as though their story was a foregone conclusion , not like it was meant to be. Don’t get me wrong, I did like this story and would love to read more in the Bayou stories, its just—this could have had more oomph. I do recommend still you reading it for it’s a good romantic fun book to read.

My Rating: 3.9 stars ****
