Calamity Jena by Janet Elizabeth Henderson

Calamity Jena by

           Janet Elizabeth Henderson

Book Description

Jena Morgan, Atlantic City’s favorite go-go dancer, may have overreacted when she found her boyfriend balls deep in a stripper called Candy. Instead of washing her eyeballs with bleach, she drank a bottle of tequila and bought a house off the internet. A house far away from her cheating, criminal of an ex-boyfriend. A house in Scotland. As soon as she turns up to claim her new home, Jena finds out exactly why you shouldn't 'one-click' houses while falling-down drunk. It was a dump. With no money, and no skills outside of shaking her booty, Jena does the only thing she can do—she throws herself into the biggest DIY project the Highlands have ever seen. 

Since Jena’s arrival in town, Officer Matt Donaldson’s workload has tripled. The woman is a menace, gorgeous yes, but definitely a few sandwiches short of a picnic. Her only discernible skill seems to be causing chaos wherever she goes. She attracts trouble like honey attracts bears. Which is why Matt isn't surprised when her ex-boyfriend turns out to be a member of the New Jersey mob. Although Jena’s ex has come to Scotland to win her back, she wants nothing to do with him—a reaction the mobster does not take well. Overnight, Matt’s job morphs from hunting missing cats and breaking up fights at the old folk’s home, to chasing down the mob and keeping Jena alive. And he's trying to do it all while remaining professional enough to keep his hands off his sexy, but crazy, American charge. 

This is book 4 in the Invertary series, but can be read as a standalone novel.

Brenda's Review

This is a story that has a lot of twists to it.It's a funny feel good story.One that touches your heart but at the same has you laughing out loud.I loved it.Love the characters,the plot,the way the story flowed...Just everything about it.

Jena is a Go-Go dancer,well former dancer.After finding her boyfriend sleep around with strippers, Jena sells everything she and Frank had built together and buys a house off the internet in Scotland.Only to arrive in Scotland and finding the house is not she expected.It was a dump.Now with no money left and no job she needs to find a way to remodel the house just so she can live in it.She takes on a job at local hardware store in payment of items she will need to fix up the place.

Jena has been labeled as the town Calamity.... Seems like every time she dates someone,they end up hurt.The town takes bets on her mishaps.But all in all they really love her and help look after her.

Things were going fine until her ex shows up with his goons to take her back to the states. Frank wants her back.But not because he loves her.He needs her to strip for his club to save the business.This is when she meets Matt Donaldson,the town officer who takes it upon himself to keep her safe and away from Frank.

Matt didn't realize the trouble he was getting himself into.Trouble follows Jena everywhere she goes.The more Matt hangs with Jena the more he falls in love with her.

Cute story,lots of trouble action and adventure.I really enjoyed this story.Great read!!
