At Disney World, Paul is picked up by a five-foot duck named Huey. Duckness proves to be skin deep, however, for Huey the Duck is really Huey the Girl, an attractive young woman who leads Paul astray and into a very different world -- one of pirates, pythons and panthers, voodoo, men who have passed through the earth twice, and things that go bump in the Caribbean night.
Is Huey something more than the free spirit she professes to be?
Voodoo Love Song is a tale of romance and misadventures on a beautiful but mysterious Caribbean island. If you like the witty banter of Nick and Nora Charles, the laid-back humor of Jimmy Buffett, and the wacky story-telling of Carl Hiaasen, this one's for you. Read it while lying on a tropical beach, piña colada in hand.
"I fell in love with a duck. How good is that?"

Reviewed by Trudi LoPreto for Readers Favorite Richard Daybell is the author of “Voodoo Love”, a book that is whimsical, bizarre, and weird and I didn’t want to put it down until I finished reading. It is the story of Paul and Huey and their wild adventure. They meet on a bench in Disneyworld. Paul is taking a break and Huey is a Disney Duck trying to take a cigarette break. Huey is chased by a chipmunk and returns shortly in street clothes as a very attractive girl. She has been fired for smoking while in costume, but she happily has kept the head of the duck. They form an unusual friendship and journey by train to Key West. We next find them on a sail boat ride which leads them to being stranded on a tropical island. Paul and Huey meet a cast of strange characters while being marooned for several days. The gracious host who allows them to stay as his houseguest is a man who considers himself a Voodoo priest. While stranded, Paul and Huey encounter many adventures that are both scary and funny. The best way I can describe “Voodoo Love” is ‘Fantasy Island’ meets ‘Night of the Living Dead’ and ends with them sailing away on the ‘African Queen’. It is a very unusual book; I was not sure exactly where it was going or where it got, but I really enjoyed reading it. Richard Daybell has written a book that is a standout winner. I highly recommend this book to those who enjoy humor, adventure and fantasy all mixed together in a delightful blend.
