This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Kendell Summer just can’t catch a break. All she wants is one good passionate kiss from her paranormal partner, Myles, but in the midst of their embrace, she hears a distress message coming from a passing paddle wheeler. Her band, Polly Urethane and the Strippers, is in trouble. Once again, she must drop everything and rush to the rescue while relying on Myles to have her back.
Unfortunately, the events that unfold while she’s saving her friends only plunge her deeper into the dreaded Malveaux curse and threaten Myles with a fate worse than death. Kendell will need everyone she trusts, including her loyal dog, Cheesecake, to help her save his soul.
Second book in A Malveaux Curse Mystery series!
You, Me and the Voodoo Queen by G.A. Chase is the second novel in A Malveaux Curse Mystery series. Kendell Summer is enjoying a day with her boyfriend, Myles Garrison. A steamboat passes by playing a tune that Kendell recognizes, she says goodbyes to Myles, and runs to jump aboard the boat. Her friends and fellow bandmates are in trouble and need her assistance. It seems that Kendell is not done with the Malveaux curse (or the curse is not done with Summer). The kidnappers want Baron Malveaux’s possessions in exchange for Kendell’s friends. Kendell and Myles team up with Madam Delphine de Galpion, the voodoo practitioner, to outwit the Broussard’s. Unfortunately, things do not go as planned and Myles life ends up endangered. Kendell sets out to save Myles and eliminate the threats against him. Can she accomplish the task in time?
You, Me and the Voodoo Queen is not what I expected. G.A. Chase is the husband of Deanna Chase who writes entertaining paranormal mystery novels. What I love about Deanna’s novels is missing from You, Me and the Voodoo Queen (lacking in humor, the easy flow, and great characters). I found the writing to be awkward (clunky) and the pace slow (gets better at the end of the story). Information is repeated throughout the story. You, Me and the Voodoo Queen is not a stand-alone novel. It is necessary to read Dog Days of Voodoo or you will be lost. The Malveaux curse is complicated with various components and there are numerous characters in the book (too many). My rating for You, Me and the Voodoo Queen is 3 out of 5 stars (it is okay, but I like the premise—the curse). I thought the main characters were underdeveloped and lacked depth (especially Myles). The author is trying to jam too much into one short book (218 pages). I do want to mention that Kendell and Myles have graphic intimate relations in the book. At the end of You, Me and the Voodoo Queen, readers are left with a cliffhanger. We must wait until Voodooed Again to find out what Kendell will need to do to save someone she loves.
