Review - How Do You Voodoo? By Janice Horton

Today I'm over the moon to be able to review a 20,000 word novella by the wonderful author Janice Horton called How Do You Voodoo?

When beautiful but selfish and lonely fashion model Nola Nichols travels first class on a plane and encounters a woman who is annoying her, she demands that the woman be removed back to economy where in her opinion she belongs! Little does she realise that this woman has hidden talents and she chants a voodoo spell at her. Nola feels that nothing can affect her but shortly after she lands back in the UK her looks start to diminish and she doubts that this is just a coincidence. The biggest opportunity she has ever been offered is in jeopardy and she only has a short time to return to her former self! She is helped along the way by a doctor and is interested in just a little bit more than his medical qualifications. 

I've always been a fan of Janice's writing and after reading this novella, most definitely, still am. She's written Bagpipes and Bullshot and Reaching for the Stars, both of which I absolutely adored.  Her humour shines through and her fabulous descriptions make the scenes easy to imagine and to picture in your mind. 

There is a message in this novella which is that it doesn't matter what you look like it's what you are like as a person on the inside that counts.  Beauty isn't everything! It is beautifully written with the message standing out really well.  Be nice to people and they will be nice to you. Be rotten to people and good things will NOT happen to you.

A really enjoyable and highly entertaining read
