Voodoo Dues (Lian and Figg Novella #1) by Stephany Simmons

Review 4/5 stars!!

From the beginning of Figg’s employment, there is something not quite right about the bar. There are few customers, a parade of neighborhood psychics and pentacle adorned visitors, all coming to hold court with her enigmatic boss. Figg is not sure what is going on, but she is determined to find out!

When the local voodoo queen shows up, and the next morning her grandson ends up dead outside the bar things get interesting.

Figg pesters Lian into telling her the truth about his former life, and is thrust into a world where the things that go bump in the night are real. There’s a murder to solve, zombies to lay to rest and a villain that neither of them saw coming.

I loved this book. Voodoo Dues is a quick read with the details and action of a much longer book.

Eleanor Figg works for Dr. Lian Cairn is his bar as a bartender/assistant. What she doesn't know is that Lian is an anthropologist that has ties to the supernatural world that she had no idea existed. When the local Voodoo Queen shows up asking to speak with Lian, Figg starts to wonder who her boss really is. Figg is about to learn that witches, zombie, and a lot more supernatural creatures really do exist.

In Voodoo Dues we get to read from both Figg and Lians point of view which I loved since both characters are so different. Stephany writes a great story and all of the characters have their own personalities. If you love some mystery, sexual tension, voodoo, zombies and lots more in a book that will make you laugh out loud this is the book to read.
