Pearl Jinx
by Sandra Hill

The Jinx Inc. treasure-hunting company has a new mission — to find the ‘cave pearls’ rumoured to exist in the bottom-most cavity of an ancient cave. But first, mission leader Caleb Peach has to find an expert consultant. An ex-Navy SEAL, Caleb is used to getting his man but Dr Claire Cassidy, archaeologist extraordinaire, is proving hard to pin down. Only after he tracks her down on her fishing holiday and proves that Jinx Inc. is an upstanding, responsible company does she sign on the dotted line. The attraction is immediate but Caleb and Claire are very different people. He’s buttoned up and goes by the book and still carries a lot of bitterness because of a painful past. She’s a free spirit and truly self-sufficient and independent, yet she’s not opposed to the possibility of love in her life. With Claire’s help, along with the assistance of Cajun Healer, Tante Lulu, Caleb and his family reconcile. At about the Same time, adventure and hilarity abound as the crew of Jinx Inc. begin the search for and find the fabled cave pearls.



Sandra Hill's Bio

Humor has become a hallmark of Sandra Hill's books. She started out with Vikings, tried a medieval knight, moved into the Old South, then the California gold fields, on to modern-day Manhattan, Memphis, Maine and Galveston. But the one element that has remained consistent in all her books is the laugh-out-loud humor.

Sandra's first book came out in October 1994, and since then she has published fifteen novels and had novellas in four anthologies, all through Dorchester Publishing.

Married for almost thirty years (to the same man!!!), Sandra is the mother of four sons. Living with five males (not to mention a male German Shepherd the size of a small horse) is enough to make any woman develop a sense of humor, Sandra often says. Either that, or go mad.

The most gratifying thing to Sandra has been the amazing reader response to her books. Almost 5,000 readers have taken the time to write to her over the past five years (some of them repeatedly) to tell her how much her books have touched their lives. This is the one thing Sandra never expected when she first started writing...the need for laughter in a world that is becoming increasingly stressful and sometimes downright dreary. She is only too happy to help and promises her fans that her well of humor is not about to run dry for a long, long time.
