paranormal romance and cozy mystery author

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

Here Ghost Nothing

This time a guy drops dead in her front yard. I still love the Thor and Bandit antics, as well as all of Audrey's family issues. Can't wait for more mysteries!

Witch Way to Romance & Ruin

This second book in this very fun paranormal cozy mystery series was even better than the first one. I just really love this cute series!

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.

What the Hex

It doesn't help when your memory has as many holes as swiss cheese and having your brain wiped doesn't help Holly one bit. Especially not when the faces of strangers somehow look familiar, things are not what they seem. But Holly just bites the bullet and carries on - because she just has to.

I enjoyed the first two books in this series and this one is the best because it answers all the confusing questions that were posed and ties everything together. Good read, thumbs up!

Carolk

Battle Of The Hexes

Another wonderful book in this series.
Jane Hinchey is an amazing author.
Love reading all her wonderful books.
Highly recommend reading this wonderful book.

Becky Brown

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.

Unique and fun series! I enjoyed all three books, and I know you will too!

Penny Noble

Witch Way Down Under

I love this world and the characters in it.

Angela Firuccia

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.

First Blade

5 stars

The world thinks Zak is just a writer of great supernatural books. Little do they know he is supernatural. When demons destroy his home he also finds his ring is activated. It could only have been activated if the dagger, which has remained hidden for years, had drawn blood. Now he had to find it before something worse than a destroyed home happens.
Georgia has found an old dagger hidden in a wall of a stable on the property she owns. Cut herself on the darned thing. Oh well, nothing a bandaid won't cover. Georgia and her sister own a shop where they sell, well, junk. Old junk and furniture that she refinishes. Sometimes she gets a commission to construct something new. Zak Goodwin has commissioned her to build a bed. She is pretty sure he plans to get her in it, but she has no intention of being another notch on his bedpost, so to speak.
Zak has managed to enter Georgia's dreams, but she has kept him from finding out what he needs to know. She doesn't understand her strange dreams, but she does understand when vampires tell her to steal Zak's ring, or else. She knows that stealing the ring off his finger is impossible, but maybe she can figure something out.
When Zak sees the knot the vampire left on her forehead he demands to know how she got it. She uses the "I ran into a door" excuse, but he isn't buying it. He uses his power to heal her and admits that he is half vampire and half angel.
OK, that is all you get. I think you will enjoy the story if you like paranormal books at all. I am hoping for a sequel.

Ghost Mortem

This book is fun and engaging. The characters are great. Audrey is interesting and relatable. This book is full of humor and adventure. The mystery has so many twists and turns to keep you guessing.

Jennifer Wertz

Easy Come Easy Ghost

I totally loved this book. I was so happy to get the next in the series. Thor and Bandit on the video calls are absolutely hilarious. And really, who would’ve thought of dumpster diving as premarital bonding?

Tonia Williams

Fur the Hex of it

Having already read this book as part of a collection I enjoyed reading it again very much. I have a couple of books that I read over and over every few years since childhood and I think this could become one of them. I am a fan of Holly Day now and looking forward to the next book in the series. This book is full of excitement and some laugh-out-loud pieces too. If you like good cozy mysteries I recommend you read this the first book in a new series. My Amazon and bookbub reviews are shown as mrscarrot

A Ghost of a Chance

Every time I read a book in the series, I just fall in love with Audrey all over again. I don’t know why exactly, but this series is one of my favorite cozy paranormal mystery series, and I do know Audrey is one of the reasons why.

Penny Noble

Fur the Hex of it

What a fantastic new series!! Love the characters, especially the name Holly Day. And her "pet rat" Flynn. Wonderfully funny and intriguing, can not wait for more!

I love The Ghost is Clear! This is a fun and engaging mystery. I love the quirky characters. This book is entertaining, humorous, mysterious, and action-packed.

Jennifer Wertz

What the Hex

Welcome back to the paranormal town of Gravestone, Texas, where Twitch the Witch, aka Holly Day (umm…Holiday??) has been hiding out with Flynn the rat (her former SIA Operative partner). Although she has been instructed not to use her magic under any circumstances, she finds herself right in the middle of another murder, and under scrutiny by the local Sheriff’s department. Will newcomer Fay Tality (is that a fatality?) help Holly and her new best friend Doris Shutt (get it? Door is shut??) find the killer? Will Holly finally find out why she was really sent to Gravestone? And will she and Calder ever admit their feelings for one another? Book three in this series is just as laugh-out-loud funny as the first two. And just when I think I can’t love the characters anymore…well let’s just say that I’m proven wrong!

Terry Williams

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

Life Ghost On

If you’ve been following this series, this book gets to the one event we’ve all been waiting for….the wedding! As always, though, Audrey has an adventure and a half to get there! I love this latest installment! It was funny and intriguing and had me surprised and happy at the end. I recommend diving into the series if you haven’t yet.
Life Ghost On is the ninth book in the Ghost Detective series.
I voluntarily received and reviewed an advanced copy of this book.
Final Rating: 5 Stars

Witch Way to Romance & Ruin

The second book in this series. I loved revisiting Harper and Gran.
And Gran being accused of murdering another witch. I am totally hooked on this series.
I loved reading this book.

Becky Brown

Witch Way to Beauty & the Beach

In this latest, Harper along with Archie discovers the body of a local teen. What follows is the usual mix of romance, fun, and sleuthing. Finally, finally, we see some resolution to Harper’s love life. Yay!

Penny Noble

First Blood

First Blood is a fantastic book. I loved this book. It is full of action and suspense. This book is engaging and impossible to put down. The characters are great and I enjoyed how their stories progressed. This book is a perfect conclusion to the trilogy. I loved this series and highly recommend it.

Jennifer Wertz

Wild Ghost Chase

Another great read from Jane I absolutely love Audrey, Kade Thor, and Bandit. I couldn’t put this one down, just like all the rest, I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book. I highly recommend it if you need a good laugh.

Terrena Clarke

Life Ghost On

She's done it again! Jane sucks you in to murder, mystery, and mayhem with awesome characters, and this time the story is wrapped up in a wedding veil! Don't miss the wedding of the year!

Lilly

Witch Way Down Under

I just love cozy paranormals, and this series is so much fun! Harper, Jenna, Archie, Gran, etc. are in Australia this time around to find out what’s up with Harper’s parents, and there is much mayhem. I love these characters and how much fun they have with each other.

Penny Noble

What the Hex

Read books in order, you will want to know how the adventure started. This is another twisted, fast-paced, can't put it down, so make sure your kindle/e-reader is charged up. You have your hot tea or your favorite drink is ready to go. You will love trying to find friends, frenemies, and allies, as well as liars and partial truth-tellers. You will want to figure out whodunnit and see if you are right or wrong!
I really love this series, waiting for the next one!

Doty

First Witch

4.5 stars

I loved the first book in this series, First Blade, and this was a great sequel. Georgia was turned by her boyfriend Zak who is a vampire-angel hybrid and her sister had to be turned also. They now live with Zak, so is a famous author, and his vampire warriors.
Georgia is starting to feel a little constricted by her vampire daylight limitations. When her aunt shows up and tells her and her sister that they are also witches from her mother's bloodline, things get a little more interesting. Although Zak insists that vampires and witches don't mix, she sets out to prove him wrong.
Unfortunately, her family has a nemesis in the form of a powerful witch Hunter. He has been awakened early and is after her aunt. Her aunt has come to see if Georgia and Skye can add their magic to her coven and help them destroy the Hunter.
What follows is a story of body possession, magic, and betrayal. Georgia will be taken past the edge of life to destroy the Hunter and save herself and Zak. I can't wait for the next one!

What the Hex

What the Hex is a fantastic paranormal cozy mystery. I loved this book! The characters are wonderful and quirky. The plot is engaging and fun. This book is full of humor, mystery, magic, and romance. I highly recommend this book and can't wait for more Gravestone mysteries.

Jennifer Wertz

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

Battle of the Hexes

Absolutely loved this book. What great characters, and it keeps you intrigued! Can't wait for more, and to see where it goes with Holly and Calder!!!

Marci

Ghost Mortem

This was a great start to a great new adventure. Audrey is very relatable. I laughed several times and felt like I was in that world. I can't wait for more and to see Audrey's journey into becoming a PI!

Angela Firuccia

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

Third Strike of Midnight

This third book by Jane in this world was awesome! The characters are great and the story was action-packed with a great ending! Loved everything about it.

Angela Firuccia

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.

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.

Fur the Hex is the first of a new series set in the small coastal town of Gravestone, it's a cozy fun mystery featuring Holly Day, a witch, and her friend/colleague Flynn, who has been turned into a rat. They belong to the Supernatural Investigation Agency (SIA) but are at present lying low in the small sleepy town of Gravestone.

Shortly after their arrival she and Doris an older resident of the town begin to investigate the discovery of human bones in her backyard, they soon discover that things aren't as they seem especially when there's another suspicious death.
