"Hex, Death, & Rock 'N' Roll" by E. F. Watkins
Having barely survived a haunting in her own house, 30-something journalist Quinn Matthews has vowed never to get involved with the supernatural again. But her experiences awakened new psychic sensitivities that she can’t turn off. When she attends a performance by the rock group Mad Love, she witnesses a supposed accident that claims the life of a cameraman—except Quinn saw a shadowy figure commit the “crime.”
The band’s lead singer, Alan Bardot, asks Quinn to use her gifts to discover who has been trying to sabotage the band since its last tour. Soon, she finds herself entangled in the secrets, grudges and jealousies surrounding Mad Love. Are they really under a curse, as threatening messages have claimed? If someone is using occult means to get revenge, can Quinn find out who, why and how before she ends up a target herself? And finally, can her shaky relationship with her reporter boyfriend survive her spending so much time with a sexy rock star?

I was completely entertained by this book. Even though it was in a series, it stood on its own. I didn't find myself lost or confused. The main character was strong and smart, and a little bit psychic. I enjoyed the paranormal aspect of Quinn's character. The book lived up to its title, there was a "Hex", a "Death" & some "Rock 'N' Roll". The band, Mad Love, had been having too many accidents for it to be considered coincidence and wanted to offer Quinn a deal - If she uncovered who was responsible for all the trouble the band was having then she would get to write her dream article about lead singer Alan Bardow's apartment for a prestigious magazine that had been seeking Alan's permission to feature his home for some time. Even though they ask Quinn to help, Alan is holding back some secrets that Quinn won't let go uncovered. Some things in this book gave me a chill, if you believe in the possibility of curses, shadowy figures, premonitions, and things that go bump in the night, you'll probably experience it too. A seedy underworld, a controversial lifestyle, father/son clashes, friends feeling betrayed, a little crushing on a gorgeous rock star, a crazy fan - How will Quinn work through all of these things and stay balanced in her own life with her job and her boyfriend? Read and find out. I recommend it.
I was given a copy of this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
