Sweet Water

Birds of a Feather #2

Reviewed by Melanie on April 12, 2017


This is the first book I’ve read by Lena North. I enjoy her writing style and like that things are straight-forward with small bits of foreshadowing in each chapter.

By chapter three I was ready to put this book down, and move to another I may have liked more. Jinx, the main character, is absolutely appalling. As a very intelligent introvert, I hated that she was constantly condescending, thought every one wanted a piece of her, and never gave anyone a chance.

I stuck with the story and am overjoyed that I did. Rarely does a character grow and develop so quickly, but also quietly. I haven’t read the first book in the series, but didn’t feel lost picking up this book. If Jinx was the same way in the first book, I would have never picked up this book and would have missed this amazing transformation.

Overall I immensely enjoyed the book and will be looking for Wilder and the rest of the series. I want to learn about each of these interesting characters and the world they live in.

Jiminella “Jinx” Sweetwater is a genius. She’s a scholar, an inventor, hardworking and loyal, and well known in the scientific circles around the University in Prosper City.

Being smarter than everyone else might seem like a good thing, but it isn’t. At least, it isn’t to Jinx who has two friends, a small condo, and no life.

After a fight with her best friend Wilder, it just gets worse. Someone breaks into her home and when her parents show up in all their hippie-like glory, Jinx has had enough and escapes to a small village by the sea.

Suddenly, Jinx finds herself involved in village life, living with the unpleasant Mrs. Fratinelli and trying her best to juggle all the things that end up on her plate. And then there’s calm, cool and gorgeous Dante – Snow’s boyfriend, who seems to see right through the shields Jinx has put up around herself, straight into her mind.
