Carol Higgins Clark, bestselling author of Fleeced and coauthor with Mary Higgins Clark of He Sees You When You’re Sleeping, returns in top form in her new Regan Reilly mystery, blending her talent for intriguing locales, eccentric characters, and fast-paced suspense laced with humor.

In Jinxed, smart, saucy sleuth Regan Reilly faces a new challenge: the case of the missing wedding guest.

Regan, an LA–based private detective, returns to her office after a vacation with her beau, Jack “no relation” Reilly. Their tour of the wineries in Napa Valley and Santa Barbara County includes a stop at Altered States, a run-down winery owned by three siblings who are all former hippies—Lilac, Earl, and Leon Weldon.

Regan is barely in her office when she gets an excited call from Lilac. The Weldon family has been invited to the wedding of ninety-three-year-old Lucretia Standish, a former silent-screen star, who made a killing in a dot-com before it went bankrupt and plans to give the Weldons $2 million each … if they all show up at her wedding, which is two days away. However, Lilac’s daughter Whitney, a.k.a. Freshness, a young actress, is out of touch and goes where the wind blows. If it doesn’t blow her back into town by Sunday morning, the Weldon family will be out $8 million.

Regan’s job is to find Whitney. But Lucretia’s fiancé, the much younger Edward Fields, is also on the hunt. He’s hired an accomplice in crime to locate Whitney and get rid of her.

With Jinxed, Carol Higgins Clark is at her very best.

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brittany | 9/13/2013

    " This book was a waste of time. I don't think that Carol Higgins Clark is a good author. I felt that everything in the book was amateur and predictable. I'm going to stick to reading her mother's novels. "

    " An easy read, but the plot was pretty predictable if you ask me. I read it in a couple of days during the summer during my bus ride to and from work. It served it's purpose- it kept me busy and kept people from striking up a conversation with me :) "

    " I listened to this book in the car and was entertained, but would never read it. It was a bit bizarre because the authur created outlandish links for all the characters to all the characters. I was semi-glad when the book was done. AND, the author did the audio and was HORRIBLE. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy B | 11/18/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachelle | 11/3/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 8/13/2012

    " These are really quick easy going mysteries. Carol Higgins Clark likes complex plots ( make that so full of coincidences that they are not very believable) but everything ties up nicely in the end. "
