When twenty-five-year old Sophie Nouveau inherits her grandmother's voodoo shop she knows nothing about voodoo. Or her family's history of Mind Changers, who have the power to chd off by her grandmother's ghost, Sophie realizes her mind-changing spell's been missing one magic ingredient: true love. If Sophie cannot experience transformative love, she cannot make her spell work, and she will be powerless to fight back when confronted by the one who wants her dead.
Voodoo Butterfly is a book that I wasn’t sure I would like. I’m not big into magic and voodoo type things, but I was hopeful that I would like it, and I’m glad I took a chance. I’ve always wanted to go to New Orleans but for now, I’ll have to be satisfied with books that take place there.
The main character, Sophie, is a fairly complicated woman. She didn’t have the best childhood so she has trouble trusting people. She definitely has issues, but she seems open (at times) to resolving them. She doesn’t always make the best choices, but she’s learning. It was nice to see her start making better decisions, even if the bad ones she was making were quite stupid.
One of the things I really liked about Voodoo Butterfly was that I never knew what Sophie was ultimately going to decide to do. Not just about being the next mind changer, but with pretty much anything. She was unpredictable in the sense that you didn’t know what her end game would be but predictable in that she was going to make a lot of wrong choices before she finally decided what she wants to do.
I would like to have learned more about Sophie’s parentage and more about her grandmother. I’d also like a bit more background on Jaques and Poppy. As a whole, I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next in the series.
