WindfallBook - 2005
"A rollicking good ride. Caine's prose crackles with energy, as does her fierce and lovable heroine."—Publisher’s Weekly
Joanne is all-out exhausted. When not donning a rain slicker and camping it up for the camera as a TV weather girl, she has to contend with a vengeful cop on her tail, her newly divorced sister moving in—with a charming but mysterious British beau in tow—and getting caught in the middle of a supernatural civil war. Worst of all, her boyfriend in a bottle can't stop draining her powers and is fast morphing from the Djinn of her dreams to the Ifrit of her nightmares.
As the agreement between the Wardens and the Djinn starts to self-destruct, Joanne finds herself forced to choose between saving her lover, saving her Warden abilities...and saving humanity.

SummaryAdd a Summary
Just when you think Rachel Caine cannot outdo her previous Weather Warden offering with action, twists and wit, she creates something so riveting you cannot put the book down even if you wanted or had to. Windfall is the fourth book in the Weather Warden series and the best one thus far. No sooner does Joanne Baldwin free herself from one conundrum than she lands in another. She quit her job as Weather Warden and now settles for a job as Weather Girl for one of the local stations. She has gone from saving humankind from the elements of Mother Nature to smiling in front of a camera wearing sun or rain costumes and getting soaked with water. But that is the least of her problems. Her sister crashes into her home after her husband dumps her, a vengeful cop won't leave her alone until she tells him what happened to his former partner Quinn (villain from Chill Factor), her sister starts to play house with Cute British Guy (the name Joanne and her friend use to describe him), and Joanne may be losing her powers, for David is becoming an Ilfrit and is feeding from her power. On top of everything else, there are rogue Wardens with demon marks chasing after Lewis and the Djinn have had enough and are killing Wardens in order to obtain their freedom. They have also separated into two groups and have begun what could well become a supernatural Civil War.
