Pink Jinx

Sandra Hill

Warner, Nov 2006, $6.99

ISBN: 0446616524

Lawyer Veronica Jinkowsky wants nothing to do with her estrange grandfather Frank who had no time for her when she was growing up so when he orders her to see him at his New Jersey home, she prefers to say no, but a sense of duty forces her to see him anyway. He tells her he is broke and gives her his treasure hunting company, Jinx Inc. Finally Frank informs her that her first job as the owner is to salvage the Sea Witch that went down off the Jersey shore carrying a fortune in pink diamonds; the clients are Mafia widow Rosa Menoti and her two mobster children Tony and Steve.

Pink hates the water, but is not sure how she was conned to join the search. Adding to her misery is her ex husband four times Jake Jenson, a professional poker player, is an investor and coming along for the ride. Unbeknownst to Veronica is that Frank wants his granddaughter happy, which he thinks means being married for the fifth time as he believes Veronica and Jake belong together. Just because Jake is or isn't engaged to Dr. Bimbo is not an issue.

This is an amusing contemporary romance with some late suspense that showcases why Sandra Hill is the queen of comedic love stories. The lead pair is a delightful couple whose marriages symbolize the humorous dysfunctional "relationship" tale as they dubbed them: "Sappy", "Cowboy", "Tequila", and "Insanity". Fans of lighthearted jocular modern day novels will as always appreciate Ms. Hill's wild sea ride.
