Wintr's Homecoming: Secrets (Secrets, Lies, and Betrayel #1) by Jen A Durand


Goodreads Review




Jinx Wintr only wanted to talk one of her best friends out of an impulsive decision. Old memories and even older aquiantances had been unexpected and unwelcome. Dominic Lowell had not changed one bit. He yearned for family and a home. Only now he was hoping to build those things with her. Faced with the remnants of a childhood crush and the fear that history would repeat. Jinx could not decide. Should she continue to exist with a closed heart or should she trust the love of her wolf?

Dominic had lived a long time and still knew nothing about woman. He lived a life of service to his family and his clan. Now Dominic wanted to serve and protect this woman with soulful dark brown eyes, and forthright honesty. He wanted to focus on her before she let fear break what they could have. Unfortunately Weres were going missing worldwide, and Dominic's security company had been tasked with investigating. He has a few weeks to figure out what's going on and how to calm a girl with commitment issues as big as the Atlantic.


In this case do not judge the book by its cover.

Looking to get out of a wedding with your one true mate?  Yeah then Jinx is your wheels even if you don't want to she'll bail you out. 

There is one tinny tiny issue her high school crush is involved and her friend does actually want to mate with Julian. 

What's a lass to do?  Jinx is to go with the flow and gets herself some wolf loving.

Our Hero Dominic wolf is in security and has been given a case by the council. Others/Weres are missing and that kept the book upbeat, interesting and a good and solid read.

The author creates a fan paranormal/shifter book which keeps you on the edge of your seat. I enjoyed the writing and the characters but I got to say not all was rainbows and sparkles. Jinx ruined it for me with all her pessimism and anti-mateism. I get it but on top of that her commitment issues made it hard to deal with IMO at least.  Jinx has also been avoiding her powers but it is time to change that.

I was confused when a childhood memory of Jinx’s was bought up. I’d thought that I’d missed something so I reread the passage again. We also read what is happening to the missing Others/Weres the transition here needs to flow smoother than it does. But this again is just my personally opinion.

All in all? A book I would recommend even if it isn’t entirely my cuppa of tea. But an author to watch out for.
