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 is the best one so far in this series!! I never ever guessed who did it!!!

Marci

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.

TysAunt

Witch Way to Murder & Mayhem

I really enjoyed this book. A great cozy paranormal mystery. The grams in here reminds me a lot of Grandma Mauzer in The Stephanie Plum mysteries. Never read this author before, but now I want to read all these Witch Way books. Thanks for giving this one free on Amazon.

Rebecca

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!

Witch Way to Death & Destruction

This series is quickly becoming one of my favorites. I love the characters and all the hijinks they get into.

Angela Firuccia

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

Audrey and Kade are back, and I am so excited. Their dynamic is so loving and fun, and I am over the moon that we got to meet Kade’s parents. I was a little bummed that we didn’t get to see much of Seb, Bandit, and Thor, and we didn’t see Ben at all, but again, it was fun to meet Kade’s parents. This latest in the series is full of wild fun, and Audrey is always so capable and gets to the bottom of every murder she encounters. While this mystery isn’t overly difficult, the trip to find the perpetrator is a fun adventure with Sylvia and Dennis. I can’t wait to see what happens at the Bridal Expo in the next book.

Penny Noble

Wild Ghost Chase

No spoilers from me but this is one of those books you don't want to put down and itch to tell everyone about it, I absolutely love all the books in this series.
I love Audrey, as well as Bandit and Thor, who can be so amusing. The book is so well written it's like you're there, there was a scene involving peanut butter that had me laughing out loud!
It's a fun story, with well-drawn interesting characters who make you want to meet them! I am already eager to read the next one.

Tricia Wright

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

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

Give up the Ghost

Audrey is just so funny and entertaining without being a mockery. I love the interactions between her and Galloway, or Captain Cowboy Hot Pants.

Penny Noble

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

What the Hex

I just love these wonderful stories of the rat-not-rat, Flynn and his mate Holly Day, the witch, and the mischievous things they get up to with their sidekick Doris. I am always left smiling and wanting to see what this crazy bunch will get up to next. Once again, the ending was quite the surprise. I think I might just sit down and read the whole book again!

Recommended, clean, fun, and entertaining read!

Jennine

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

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!

Marci

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!

Angela Firuccia

Fur the Hex of it

I love this book. I love the quirky characters and the small town. I enjoyed the crazy shenanigans that the characters got into. This story is so fun and entertaining.

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

Easy Come Easy Ghost

Terrena Clarke

Life Ghost on

Great book. I always love reading about Audrey and company b,ut I think I like this one the most. Jane has a way of making murder into something that is not dark. A good cozy mystery with a beautiful ending.

Sheila M.

All in Vein

Mak and Hal are just so darn cute as an “old” vampire married couple. We are introduced to them, their lovely kitten Fang, Oli, and to their new friend Elena. I’m all excited to read more in that series.

Penny Noble

What the Hex

Holly and Doris are at it again. This is such a fun cozy mystery with lots of humor, suspense, and some twists. Several parts made me laugh out loud and I adore the character names. They are a hoot. The chemistry between Holly and Calder heats up throughout the book, which fills me with glee. This is such an enjoyable book and series that I can’t wait until the next installment.

Michalle

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

Battle of the Hexes

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

Angela Firuccia

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

Ghost Detective Series

I read this whole series and loved them! The characters were great!

Linda Ross

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

What the Hex

I've always enjoyed Jane's writing, and once more she hasn't failed to deliver a fun, engaging read. The character continues to grow, the story unfolds, and the reader is absorbed in the mystery. You are also guaranteed to be entertained by the play on names - so "look busy" and read this book now!

Lilly Rayman

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

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!!!

Rabea McGhie

Witch Way to Beauty & the Beach

I love this series! The characters are great and the story is always entertaining. I love this world that Jane Hinchey created.

Angela Firuccia

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

Jessie Cairney

Wild Ghost Chase

I just love Audrey because she embraces her flaws and doesn’t let that slow her down. I also love how supportive Kade is, how supportive her friends are, and her lovable sidekicks round out the wonderful characters.

Penny Noble

Fur the Hex of It

I love when this author introduces a new series, and this one is a doozy. Holly's drawn into a mystery in this small town, and she has to solve it before she’s the next victim. I just loved how self-assured and together Holly is. Doris and Flynn were fun sidekicks, and let’s not forget Calder, the law in the town.

Penny Noble

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

Easy Come Easy Ghost

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

Steph

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

Witch Way to Beauty and the Beach

Loved the romance of the characters Jackson and Harper.
Wonderful book.

Becky Brown

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

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

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.

A Ghost Of A Chance

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!

Stephanie Horan

The Ghost is Clear

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

Awakening Series Collection

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

Penny Noble

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

What the Hex

As if it weren't enough trying to keep a low profile, the peculiar name she had been assigned, walking around with her not-cute boot foot, and her sudden headaches, it all seemed a jumble with her memory off. It was funny to me to visualize Holly with the rat on her shoulder dragging the foot-boot as she tried to figure out the culprits. Not a very sexy sight for Calder, but that man was special! The mystery got more and more complicated and kept me enjoying the plot twists, some that I didn't expect and took me by surprise. An interesting cozy mystery, with an entertaining, funny plot with a picturesque old ex-agent who made me laugh all the time with her antics. I liked the mystery, the romance between Holly and Calder, the interesting characters, and that Holly now has more options to help Flynn and recover her memory. Eager for the next book.
