Book finished: Windfall

I just finished #4 Windfall by Rachel Caine. I rate it a 10.
Leaving Las Vegas seemed like a good idea to Joanne Baldwin. But there's no escaping her past - and there's no time to recharge. The former Weather Warden's powers are at an all-time low just as the clouds of war are gathering - and the biggest storm since Atlantis's destruction is heading for landfall.
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.

Just like all the other books in her series, Rachel Caine has ended the book by finishing this story and setting up the suspense for the next book...which won't be out until Sept. OF NEXT YEAR.

I took this book to work instead of Buried Deep. May end up doing the same with Hula Done It? It's a short night tonight; I have to go in 1.5 hours early which means getting up 1.5 hours earlier than usual & we all know that I won't get to sleep until my regular time so why bother going to bed early? On the plus side, I get off 2 hours early so I'll have more time for something (as long as it's not cleaning house!) If I get Fri. night off, I'll probably start one of the two library books, probably Harry Potter. Will start Buried Deep on Fri. or Sat. night.
