DEJA VOODOO (3) by Elle James: Another spell goes awry in Bayou Miste and business owner Alex Boyette’s dog, Sport, turns into a dream guy who barks. When her brother’s partner, cop Ed Marceau, bumps into Alex on the street, he is instantly captivated — as is Alex. It gets complicated when she and Ed “officially” meet at a family dinner with Sport by her side. What to do when a dog-turned-man is interfering with a potential happy-ever-after situation? This is an enjoyable story of mix-ups and mayhem. Extra long exposition throughout the story slows down the pace a bit, and the predictable premise makes it less of a hit.
