Review - Voodoo Wedding by Janice Horton

This was such a delightful novella, I actually wished it had gone on for longer.

In the sequel to How Do You Voodoo? model Nola and Dr-to-be Lewis plan their wedding. What starts out as a very small intimate wedding with no press coverage turns into something completely different!

Janice's other books include Bagpipes and Bullshot and Reach For The Stars both of which are funny, warm, and full of life.

I have always loved the way Janice writes about the Scottish highlands in a way which makes you feel that you can reach out and touch it.  She has such an easy-to-read writing style too. 

This was a wonderful story with a perfect ending, in fabulous locations and with such a beautifully picturesque setting that if I could have jumped in my car and gone there myself I absolutely would.

The only downside of this novella for me was the fact that it was a novella and not a full length book.

I do love to keep turning the pages of Janice's books, getting involved with her beautifully created characters, Picturing the scene and being able to smell touch and feel.

Hi Kim! I'm so thrilled you read and reviewed 'Voodoo Wedding' for its launch today on Facebook and Twitter.

I'm also excited that you enjoyed it. When I wrote the first part of this story 'How Do You Voodoo?' readers also said they wanted a longer book and so 'Voodoo Wedding' became the sequel. The next part of Nola and Louis's story 'Voodoo Child' will be available later this year.

All these 20,000 word novellas (around 70 pages)are that perfect size for that train, plane or bus journey, don't you think?

Thanks again for being so complimentary about my writing and for enjoying my books!

I'm off to party - so do join me if you can!

Can't wait to read Voodoo Wedding, have it on my Kindle as I downloaded it this morning! Love bite sized books for those times when you want something you can read in one go. Had a long train journey this week and this would have been perfect. Lovely review Kim, as always you whet my appetite!
