Review: The Marriage Jinx by Krista Noorman

Relatable characters and a fun premise mark the start of the delightful Love in Abbottsville series. This clean fiction title really pulled out all of the feels for me. It had such a nice combination of strong friendships between the four young women who made the marriage pact in the first place, the possibility of a new romance with an old crush, and strong family relationships on both sides.

I loved that Penny and Lucas found each other after so many years and that it was clear to this reader that they really were made for each other, even though it took a long time for that reality to come about.

The author did a great job of capturing the feeling of new love and these two definitely had chemistry together. She also did a spectacular job of wringing out my heart when certain things happened that caused pain for both Penny and Lucas.

I am looking so forward to reading more books in this series and reconnecting with all of the characters as Penny’s friends undoubtedly find their own happily-ever-afters.

A secret romance with my boss and a dating jinx … what couldn’t go wrong?

I never expected to move back to my hometown after losing my job, but when the perfect position opened up at Abbott Farms, run by our town’s founding family, it was meant to be. Now, my new boss is Lucas Abbott—my high school crush, recently single—and the attraction I feel is definitely not one-sided this time.

There are just a few problems:

He’s not allowed to date employees due to a family scandal years ago.

His ex-wife wants him back.

And then there’s the jinx.

My best friends think I’m crazy for believing we jinxed ourselves, but ever since we made a pact not to get married before we turn thirty, our dating lives have been one disaster after another. That can’t be a coincidence, right?

Now that THE guy might finally be in my life, mishaps and misunderstandings ensue, leaving me to wonder … is the jinx really the problem, or are deeper issues standing in our way?
