Laissez les bon temps rouler! The pleasure of your company is requested at the most over-the-top wedding New Orleans has ever seen… When Poppy Fields, Hollywood IT girl and super-secret agent, agreed to be a bridesmaid, she anticipated gallons of Sazerac, memorable parties and handsome groomsmen. Instead, she's dodging bullets. Juggling wedding showers, exploding buildings, picnics, black magic, lunches in the Vieux Carré, and murder can be tough on a girl. Good thing Thor is there to escort her—until he disappears. Poppy must outwit smugglers primed to flood the U.S. with a dangerous new drug (one Poppy knows all too well), save Thor, and get to the church on time. If she fails, she may end up dead. Or—worse—late to the wedding.

POPPY TAKES ON NOLA!
Everyone’s favorite spy is back and she’s better than ever! Poppy’s on her way to Spy Boot Camp but first must stop in New Orleans to be in her college roommate’s (Adele) wedding. No big deal, right? Wrong! It’s the blending of two old line Louisiana families so let the partying begin! For two entire weeks! Of jam-packed activities! How can Poppy get in any trouble? It’s just a wedding! (Said someone who has NEVER been involved in a huge over-the-top wedding in the party capital of the world - New Orleans!)
At their first meeting, Poppy and Adele find themselves dead center of some sort of bizarre attack. As they duck and cover, Poppy immediately starts working the case in her mind - the very thing she was instructed NOT to do. She really can’t help it. She’s as drawn to that as the Mississippi River is drawn to the Gulf of Mexico. It’s an irresistible pull that will always have her in its grip no matter the consequences. This quick attack triggers an avalanche of other criminal activities that have Poppy so busy Mark (THOR!!) is quickly sent out as her Plus One for all wedding festivities. Poppy is at her best in nonchalantly being at a wedding function, doing a little interrogating, sneaking off and investigating and going on with her life as normal. Only there seems to be a new problem. There seems to be two different groups of evil doers. One is a set of smugglers and they seem to be attempting to smuggle a drug with a very familiar name ... and that might be the scariest news of all. Even though New Orleans brings its own unique set of challenges - voodoo, explosions, car chases, haunted homes, Mardi Gras World and smugglers, Poppy brings her ever ready unique tool set to restore order - 1) her incredibly accurate shooting skills, 2) all the years of Krav Maga lessons 3) using her celebrity status to take advantage of a crowd and then 4) knowing who to trust.

Woohoo for Voodoo!!
Sat down to start reading Voodoo and could not put it down!! Julie Mulhern is a master in developing characters and allowing them to grow and develop in such wonderful, believable ways. The way she describes the location is so subtle yet detailed that you can close your eyes and BE there. VOODOO is the third book in this series, a trip to the Big Easy that is anything BUT easy. Attending a friend's wedding (even if you HAVE to wear the ugliest bridesmaids dress in history) should not include murder, mayhem and deceit but we can't have life getting too bland for our Poppy! A fast moving story with old friends and new colorful characters, I was completely wrapped up in it. It ended way too soon! As we used to say...5 STARS AND A BULLET!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫⚜️👽
