Review of How do you Voodoo? by Janice Horton

Loveless fashion model Nola Nichols thinks being beautiful is a curse; that is until she is cursed and her looks begin to fade just a week before the most important photo shoot of her career.
Nola rejects all rational explanation on what might be causing her lost looks and decides she has to find a way to get uncursed. This imaginative quest takes her from the Caribbean to Glasgow’s own City of the Dead. Along the way, she finds herself taking part in a rather unconventional funeral, involved in a voodoo ritual, reveals one or two unrests in her own past and falls madly in love with a doctor. Erm, that would be a witch doctor, right…?

Last year I really enjoyed reading 'Reaching for the Stars' by Janice Horton, so I was looking forward to reading her latest novella 'How do you Voodoo?'.

Nola Nichols is a beautiful model who is determined to forget her upbringing and family in Glasgow. However, when she loses her temper on a flight from the Caribbean to the UK a lady from Haiti puts a curse on her. Other passengers and even the flight attendants look scared and think that Nola has been cursed. However, Nola believes this is nonsense and the woman is crazy. That is until she wakes up the next morning and doesn't look or feel the same. Is Nola cursed and, if so, is there a way to become un-cursed?

This is a funny story with a nail biting plot and a strong heroine. A perfect read to get you in the mood for Halloween.

Thank you Janice for sending me a copy to review.
