Sharon Horton’s Jinxed is a really good suspenseful romance from Hard Shell Word
Factory. A straight romance, (no actual sex) I really enjoyed this wonderful book.
Jinxed is the interesting story of widowed teacher Kendra Duchaine, and the police
officer she turns to for help, Lieutenant Cavendish “Jinx” Jenkins. A powerful local
politician is stalking Kendra, and Jinx is not sure he can protect her as he should and is
angry at his perceived helplessness.
Jinxed is a detailed book that grabbed my attention from the beginning. The dialogue
is compelling, but if I was really picky there was one cliché scene, but one is far less
than most romances. I mention this only to let you know that while Jinxed is not perfect,
it is a really good book.
I was wholly impressed with Kendra and Jinx’s interactions and how their relationship
developed and matured. Both have known real love, and together they moved forward
with admiration and respect for each other and for their late loves; this aspect of the
book was especially well done. The supporting characters stay in the background with
Kendra and Jinx remaining the book’s focus. Another big plus for the book was the
well written and scenery descriptions, the attention to detail was excellent. Readers will
be able to sense the woods and the water; this facet of the book was written so
complete, but never bogged me down.
Jinxed is a terrific, sweet, and suspenseful romance, especially for fans of “second
chances at love” stories. Jinx is great, and a keeper. I truly enjoyed this book.
