Book Review: Grim Shadows (Roaring Twenties #2) by Jenn Bennett

Grim Shadows (Roaring Twenties #2)
by Jenn Bennett

Mass Market Paperback, 325 pages
Published June 3rd 2014
by Berkley Sensation

It’s the Roaring Twenties in foggy San Francisco. Prohibition is on, inhibitions are low, and dark magic is rolling into town…

Archaeologist Lowe Magnusson is packing something everyone wants. The djed amulet, a priceless Egyptian artifact, will fetch Lowe a hefty paycheck from one of San Francisco’s wealthiest. But when the handsome Swede runs into his patron’s uptight daughter, what he once considered easy money becomes maddeningly complicated…

Cursed with deadly spirits as her constant companions, curator Hadley Bacall must keep calm to hold her dangerous specters at bay and prevent them from lashing out at anything—or anyone. Trouble is, Lowe is driving her crazy, but her father needs the artifact he’s transporting. While Hadley can feel the amulet’s power, she can’t fathom the destruction—or the desire—it’s about to stir up.

I just love books like these. Movies too. Full of adventure, treasure, archeology, romance, jazz clubs, curses, scary demons, a bad boy hero one can imagine kicking ass, snatching the archeological prize and saving the girl, while the woman is sassy, smart, and can keep up with the men. Once again, Jenn Bennett brings a great romantic paranormal alive that is as exhilarating as bootlegging. Hot—hot—hot chemistry between two lovers and suspense on a demonic level. Keep on bringing it on, Ms. Bennett!
