WINDFALL by Rachel Caine

I finished reading this AWESOME book Tuesday night!

You think you're having a bad day? Joanne's lost her job as a Weather Warden, and saving the world generally doesn't come with a decent retirement check. It also doesn't come with any guarantees of landing a day job that won't suck, or being able to find a mystical cure for her critically ill Djinn lover. Burdened with a difficult sister in need of rescue, accused of weather-related murder, and finding herself in the middle of a Djinn civil war ... well, Joanne's bad times are just getting worse.

With enemies approaching from all sides, not to mention mounting credit card bills (Manolo Blahniks don't come cheap!), Joanne is praying for a windfall ... but the mother of all hurricanes approaching the Florida coast isn't exactly what she has in mind.

This is the 4th Weather Warden novel, which features Joanne Baldwin. I'd been waiting very IMpatiently for this instalment, and it didn't disappoint! I LOVED IT! These books are always a rollercoaster ride for the narrator as she finds herself in one bad situation after another.

Rachel's writing style is comfy, draws you into the action as if you're actually living through everything too. Very well written with excellent characters. The story - though it's the continuing arc of Jo's life - still holds a sense of closure for this particular storyline. Though now, I can't wait to check out the next one! :)

I HIGHLY recommend - not just this book - but the entire series to anyone wanting to read an excellent story with the crisp voice of a wonderful narrator.

You'd be better off starting from the beginning. Here's the sequence so far:
