Kincaid Strange, not your average voodoo practitioner, is back in the freshly imagined and hugely entertaining second installment of Kristi Charish’s urban fantasy series.
Kincaid Strange cannot catch a break. After dealing with a spate of paranormal murders, there’s barely time to recuperate–let alone sleep in–before there’s a new problem in Kincaid’s world of paranormal activity. When her roommate, Nathan Cade–the ghost of a grunge-rocker with a pathological lack of self-control–comes home bound to a dead body, it’s up to Kincaid to figure out how to free him. Ideally before her new mentor, Gideon, a powerful sorcerer’s ghost, discovers that Nate is trapped in the body he’d coveted for himself.
When Aaron, a Seattle cop on the afterlife beat–and Kincaid’s ex–calls her in to help out with a cold case, she takes the chance to mend fences with the police department. The problem: they want to interview Nate’s ghost, which she can’t produce. Then people from Nate’s past start showing up dead, and what’s killing them doesn’t seem to be human. And the way it’s killing them is especially brutal.
Nate’s hiding something, but he’s Kincaid’s friend and she wants to help him. But she also wants to stay alive….

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.
A great follow-up to the first book. Christi Charish does not dissappoint in writing a good story. Nathan Cade’s soul is in another body, and Kincade has to find a way to free him. A new case connects Nathan to the homicide. People from his past and the grung scene are coming up dead. I love reading stories of zombies, especially one that don’t want to eat you on first sight. This was such a great read, and I recommend it to everyone. I give Lipstick Voodoo: The Kincaid Strange Series, Book Two (Kincaid Strange Series, The 2) 5/5 stars.
