paranormal romance and cozy mystery author

Hi, I'm Jane. It's great to see you!

I write urban fantasy romance and paranormal cozy mysteries, but let's be real, I'm just trying to figure out how to make my love for cats, coffee, and romance a career. 😅

What Reader's are Saying

What the Hex

This book concludes the first trilogy and all your questions are getting answered.
Superbly written throughout the book and series, the storylines connect well and make perfect sense.
Holly and her friends solve yet another mystery and she finds out a few hard truths about herself and Gravestone.
It was a fun and quirky read, which grabbed me glued to the pages. Suspenseful and excellent storytelling as always.
Cannot wait what's in store for Holly next!!!

I wish I could have done half the things pregnant that Georgia does! LOL! A great addition to the series! Love this author.

Penny Noble

What the Hex

Just wow!

Funny, full of action, turns, and twists all the way! Holly, Doris, and Flynn are amazing characters... Loved it and I just couldn't put it down! I would recommend that you read the previous books in the series first though...

Sylvie Roy

Easy Come, Easy Ghost

It's nerve-wracking enough meeting the parents for the first time... throw in a ghost and some kooky senior-agers and mayhem ensues. I love this series... and the video calls with Thor, and Bandit were awesome. Thor is such a drama queen.

Angela Firuccia

Easy Come, Easy Ghost

Meeting the in-laws for the first time makes anyone nervous, and Audrey was in for a surprise she hadn't seen coming. Bonus with the in-law! I found the adventures of the elderly trio very entertaining, and how they had been getting away with it is really a mystery. Poor Audrey suddenly found herself with too much on her plate with a wedding and the mystery she felt compelled to solve. Even something was worrying the groom. I love these cozy mysteries where the protagonist is not only a ghost whisperer, but she has to deal with her own flaws and her family's inquisition. The 'in the secret' group seems to grow. And I can't leave behind the cute pets that make me smile every time they appear. A story with funny situations, curious characters, many almost, almost, culprits, and a lot of clues to follow.

Witch Way to Murder and Mayhem

I love Witch Way to Murder & Mayhem. This book is humorous and entertaining. I love the quirky characters. This is a wonderful book that was fun to read.

Jennifer Wertz

Witch Way Box Set Collection

I am such a huge fan of this series! Cozy paranormal mysteries are one of my favorites, and I can't wait for this author to write more

Penny Noble

A Ghost of a Chance

A Ghost of a Chance is a fantastic cozy mystery book. This book is entertaining and humorous. It is full of suspense and mystery. I love the quirky characters.

Jennifer Wertz

Which way to Murder and Mayhem

I absolutely loved it. Twists and turns a little magic. Couldn’t put it down had to finish it. Thanks so much

Debbie

Witch Way to Murder & Mayhem

I started the book and was at first hesitant. By the time I was about a fifth of the way in, I was in love. I enjoyed this book so much!

Penny Noble

Witch Way to Secrets & Sorcery

I really enjoyed this story and the twists it had. The characters are all great and make me laugh with their antics.

Angela Firuccia

Easy Come, Easy Ghost

I really enjoy this series. The author manages to bypass just about every aspect of a cozy mystery that bugs me. The pacing of the story pleases me; I do not feel as if a bunch of material is added just to "build suspense" or simply pad the narrative. Audrey and Kade are just ever so appealing. I like that there is not an abundance of inter-family angst; there is just a little bit of conflict. When I like a character as much as I like Audrey, it would upset me to see people being mean to her. Also ... Thor and Bandit and those covers!!

Mathpup

Battle Of The Hexes

I was so glad to see this second book in the series that I dived right in to see just what Holly is up to now. She’s still in hiding, but a murder has her knee-deep in solving another case with her as one of the suspects at first. I just love Holly and Doris’s friendship. They make such an interesting duo going around trying to solve the crime. Add in the other interesting characters in town (Howie Vasive!! LOL!), and this is such a fun series.

Penny Noble

Easy Come, Easy Ghost

Worried about leaving her beloved cat Thor and mischievous raccoon Bandit, may be more stressful for Audrey Fitzgerald than meeting her future in-laws in their new home in Chicago. When she travels with her fiancé Detective Kade Galloway to meet them, she soon realizes she has nothing to worry about since Kade’s parents are wonderful. Unfortunately, when a victim’s ghost appears to Audrey and directs her to the body, Kade and her parents are with her as she begins to communicate with the ghost. While wondering how she can keep such a secret from her future in-laws, she soon discovers that they are more than okay with Audrey seeing and communicating with ghosts, and they want to help with the investigation. This charming series is a wonderful escape from reality, and it is so easy to fall in love with Audrey, hunky Kade, and delightful Thor and Bandit. I love this series! This is my honest, voluntary review of an advanced reader copy of this book.

Wilma Casias-Schofield

First Blade

One of the first books I read by this author, and it is fabulous! I am now a lifelong reader!

Penny Noble

Easy Come, Easy Ghost

The clumsy PI and dashing police detective are moving ahead toward walking down the aisle. Meeting his folks- cool, except for the ghosts on the plane.

Getting outed by a ghost in their apartment- unexpected. Having the senior Galloways ready to dip into a murder investigation and having them not bat an eye over her psychic skills? Pricelessly awesome.

Bad guys, crazy actors, bad actors, and an evil acting sister-in-law trying to take over the wedding- maddening. Also, par for the course for Audrey- who is exactly as hilariously awful on a golf course as I had imagined

sweet, sad, and horrific mixed with butt-kicking women seeking justice

Molly

Easy Come, Easy Ghost

This book was well worth the wait. I don't know about anyone else but I find I can picture what is happening in this series as I am reading it. I can see it looks like Audrey is talking to herself when she has a conversation with a ghost. This book is a wee bit different from the rest as the animals and Ben are just fleeting glimpses, but Audrey finally meets Kade's family. I had an ARC copy of this book, and I most definitely recommend it to anybody who likes cozy mysteries.

Jessie Cairney

Another fun and action-packed cozy mystery! I love this series and this latest book didn’t disappoint. I enjoyed Audrey’s adventure as she goes to meet the future in-laws. It’s a fun read a,nd I look forward to the next book!

I am so in love with Audrey! This is my favorite series by this author, and I hope she writes hundreds of books in the series!

Penny Noble

What the Hex

Love this book! Holly Day and Doris really get in over their heads in this one.

Sheila

First Blade

First Blade is a wonderful book. It is fun and interesting. It captured my attention right from the beginning. I could not put the book down. The characters are fantastic. This book is full of action, magic, and romance. I absolutely loved this book and highly recommend it.

Jennifer Wertz

What the Hex

Wonderful!

As one of Jane's advanced readers, I absolutely devoured the book. I love all of the characters and learning more of their backstories. This series is so much fun to read.

Cindy Baldwin

What the Hex

Really adorable book. Still absolutely adore Flynn and I'm thoroughly amused by Holly and her klutzy antics. Doris is, again, also very hilarious in her shenanigans. The only thing that was, in my opinion, slightly overdone, was the use of the silly names. It seems everyone went around calling everyone else by their full, silly name. Constantly. But since the rest of the story was well put together and highly amusing, I don't mind too much. I do look forward to the future installments, especially seeing as how this book ended the beginning of why Holly is in Gravestone and starts the why of now she gets to stay there. And of course, it will also be good to read about the trouble she always seems to find herself getting into.

Jessica W

What the Hex

Amazing new story with Holly, Flynn, and Doris. Plus, secrets from the past, romance that makes you swoon, a tomato fight, and of course, a little bit of magic.

Angela Firuccia

First Blood

5 stars

This final book in the Awakening series is a good one. We catch up with a pregnant Georgia in the middle of a bad dream, or is it a premonition? Either way, she knows she must be on her guard since women have been disappearing in the area. When one of the witches from her coven disappears, Georgia, Zak, Skye, and the guys are off to hunt demon ass.

Zak is worried, but Georgia is sure she can protect herself. Being pregnant with a powerful baby is not easy, but sometimes it is helpful. Their little jelly bean won’t let its picture be taken at the doctor’s office, but it makes itself known in other ways. A little boost to mommy’s powers is always helpful. There will be a death and a birth, a new friend will be made, and an old friend will return to join in the fight.

I sure hope Jane is going to give us some more stories with the other members of the team. I can’t wait.

VaWineLover

What the Hex

Holly is doing her best to lay low and stay off the radar, but people are not making it easy. A treasure hunt brings tourists into town as well as a friend of Doris’. Who can Holly trust?

This is such a fun series and this was the best book yet. I liked learning more about Flynn’s pre-rat life. Holly, Doris, and Calder are wonderful characters. I love the characters’ names. The murder investigation not only led to the killer but gave us more information about Holly. Can’t wait for the next book!

I received an advanced reader copy of the book and I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

OMG, I couldn't put it down! Love the family and how they just love Audrey. I can't wait for more.

Steph

A Ghost of a Chance

I love this series! Audrey is one of my favorite PI's in the business. This book was especially fun with the addition of a raccoon. And of course, all my favorite characters were also back!

Angela Firuccia

Easy Come Easy Ghost

I loved this book. Audrey and Kade go to meet his parents, and mayhem ensues from the minute they walk in the door. From a dead golfer who wants her murder resolved to the "slightly" illegal activities that the golfer and her friends are up to, to the wedding activities back home that her sister-in-law is trying to ram through. This is a thoroughly funny book with lots of surprises and unexpected twists and turns. I really enjoy this series and always look forward to the next one.

Dawn

First Witch

Just as good as the first. I love Georgia, and I can't wait to read the next in the series!

Penny Noble

Easy Come, Easy Ghost

I love this series. Audrey and her boyfriend, Detective Kade, are fantastic...and the regulars are here with some new wacky new ladies...Audrey meets her in-laws-to-be and, of course, runs into another new ghost..really more than one....good mystery, good story, humor, and as always, a satisfying read.

Cathy Brown

Life Ghost On

Audrey and Kade’s wedding is finally here! How quickly can they wrap up a murder so they can enjoy their day?

I loved this! There was the typical craziness that is Audrey’s life with all kinds of snafus pre-wedding. I love Thor’s attitude, and Bandit is so adorable. The vows were a perfect recap of their story. The murder mystery was interesting, but this one was about the wedding for me. I can’t wait to see what happens next!

I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Give Up The Ghost

Another wonderful book by Author Jane Hinchey.
The character of Audrey is so awesome.
I am loving reading this series. Can't wait to read the next one.
I highly recommend reading this series of books...

Becky Brown

Battle of the Hexes

I love the characters and amazing worldbuilding with a dash of shenanigans mixed in.

One Minute to Midnight

This was a fun addition to the Magic and Mayhem universe! The characters were a lot of fun and the story was great!

Angela Firuccia

Life Ghost On

Love it! This is my favorite series of Jane's. The ghosts were a hoot and the buddies were all back! The wedding was glorious, and I can't say enough.

Kim Wright

Wild Ghost Chase

Wild Ghost Chase is so fun and hilariously entertaining. I love this series and this book might just be my favourite one yet. I highly recommend it!

Jennifer Wertz

Life Ghost On

Oh where to start!! I have been captivated by this series since book 1, and I was so excited that Audrey and Kade were finally going to have the wedding of their dreams!! Now of course, it wouldn't be normal if there wasn't some excitement and mystery to mix it all up; after all, nothing ever goes as planned. I simply couldn't put this book down, I had to know....will they get their special day? Or will they have to wait to have their wedded bliss? This series is absolutely the best. I can't wait to see what happens next!

Marci Stueven

First Witch

First Witch is an incredible book. It is intriguing and suspenseful. It is full of mystery, romance, magic, and wonderful characters. I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.

Jennifer Wertz

Fur the Hex of It

Who is Holly? What does she do for a living and where do we find her? Why is she there? Who and what is Flynn? What and who are the Supernatural Investigation Agency (SIA)? Who is Scott and how does he know Holly and Flynn? What happens when the sheriff shows up? Omg, she has truly landed in the devil's armpit hasn't she? Oh, I could not stop laughing at the play on the names of some of the folks in the town. I'm still trying to figure out if there's a meaning to others! Oh, the trials Doris and Holly get into and put Calder through are funny! What book does Denise borrow/take from Holly's house? Read and see what happens when the Mayor shows up. I liked this story so much and cannot wait to read the next book in the series!!! Enjoy the read! I did.

Dana Burk

Ghost Mortem

Loved this first book and hope to be able to read the entire series! Such a fun read. I read it in one sitting.
An original storyline for a change!

Suzanne Lyon

What the Hex

I was given an advanced reader's copy of this book for an honest review. I really enjoyed the book even though I had not read any of the previous books in the series. It has interesting characters and a great storyline. I am looking forward to reading more of this series.

Jane Van Horn

Witch Way to Death & Destruction

This is the best one yet! Demons are on the loose, Harper might be a Whitelight witch, there are some new players in town, and Jackson is acting in an unusual way. What else could possibly go wrong? This was a great ride from beginning to end with all the characters giving the reader a great time.

Penny Noble

Two Minutes Past Midnight

Great story! Fun characters. I love this world and enjoy reading about all the shenanigans the residents of the Bewildered Retirement Home got up to.

Angela Firuccia

Battle of the Hexes

Over time I have learned not to start one of Jane Hinchey's books if I only have half an hour or so because I know once I start her books I just have to finish them, they are compulsive reading, so amusing and entertaining. I thought this second book was even better than the first in this likable series.

The characters are so well-drawn and so much fun and I love how trouble just seems to find Holly when she least expects it. Who would think a visit to a flea market would lead to Holly and Doris and Flynn becoming involved in a murder case? As you would expect if you are familiar with Jane's work this is a well-written, fun mystery.

Tricia Wright

I really enjoyed this fun cozy mystery, and I had forgotten how much I love Audrey. Things don’t go to plan when Audrey and her fiancé Kade visit his parents in Chicago as Audrey immediately starts talking to a ghost and outs herself to Kade’s parents as being able to see ghosts. Here starts the whole family wanting in on the action of determining what happened to Joyce. Kade’s father being a retired cop and Kade being a detective means it’s right up their alley. The relationship Audrey had with the ghost Joyce was fun, and the conversations Audrey had with Joyce’s friends, with and without Joyce, were entertaining. I loved how everyone worked together to get to the bottom of it. This story has less of Audrey’s pets Thor and Bandit, but we still get some of their fun banter when they video chat. Really entertaining story.

Bec

Easy Come Easy Ghost

Airplanes, ghosts, and murder!

Reading this book felt like coming home and reuniting with friends and family. While the base of this book is murder, it was an interesting book, and it made me laugh a lot! Audrey and Kade are just perfect, and it's always fun to read their story.

Sylvie Roy

What the Hex

This series is so much fun. I LOVE the punny names: Holly Day, Doris Shutt, Fay Tality, Luke Bizzy, etc. I do recommend reading this series in order. In this book, a mobster is killed and his heart is removed. Holly finds the body, of course, and she and Doris are determined to find the killer. There is a lot of backstory and Holly finds out most of what happened to her to land her in Gravestone.

Michelle Crull

Ghost Mortem

A really wonderful book. It is the first in a series. Has
Such awesome characters. Jane Hinchey is such an amazing

Becky Brown

Battle of the Hexes

Battle of the Hexes is a fantastic cozy mystery. I absolutely loved it! It is fun and entertaining. It is full of humor, mystery, and action. The mystery has many twists and surprises that will keep you guessing. I love the town and all the quirky characters. I highly recommend this book and can't wait for more in this amazing series.
