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

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!!

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

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.

"Let's go! There's shenanigans to be had!" That about sums up how fun this story was. The characters were great, the story was fun, and I can't wait for more.

Easy Come Easy Ghost

I could not put this book down it’s yet another great read from Jane. I love kades parents and how they get along with Audrey and all her quirkiness lol gotta love the dramatics from Thor and Bandit as well I can’t wait for the next book in the series plz say it won’t be too long of a wait 😁

Loved this book. The fabulous characters and a great storyline.
Please tell me there will be more in this series.

Trish

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.

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.

Dora Zeno

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

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

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

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 Death & Destruction

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

Angela Firuccia

Easy Come, Easy Ghost

Great addition to the series as we have Audrey and Kade flying off to spend time with Kade's parents, who have ended their great Australia adventure and moved into a retirement community in Chicago. Her beloved pets are being taken care of by her neighbor, Seb, and he is also working on planning the wedding. Things start off on a ghoulish note when Audrey discovers there are at least a dozen ghosts on the flight, all injured in some way, with some missing entire limbs. As if flying wasn't bad enough. Ugh. She also immediately "comes out" to her future in-laws when she mistakes a ghost for another family member and tries to shake her hand. Double ugh. But apparently, Kade's parents are more interested in finding the body than they are in why it is she can interact with ghosts. Wow, that was unexpected. Huh.

I was given an advanced copy of this book by the author. My review is voluntary.

VaWineLover

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.

Jeanne

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

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.

Jennifer Wertz

The Ghost is Clear

I love Audrey! And I loved that another ghost was added to the mix... at least for a while. And Audrey's relationship with Kade is barreling ahead. Can't wait for what comes next!

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

the Ghost Detective Mysteries Boxed Sets

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

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

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

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

Give Up the Ghost

I loved Give Up the Ghost. This book is so fun and interesting. The characters are relatable and interesting. I really enjoyed the character interactions and humorous conversations. The mystery is well-developed and has many twists to keep you guessing. Give Up the Ghost is a wonderful book.

Jennifer Wertz

What the Hex

Another book that was full of laughs! I adore these characters and how the author keeps me entertained throughout the book. If you like humorous, action-packed paranormal cozy mysteries, then I highly recommend reading this series.

Kanyon

What the Hex

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

Sheila

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

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

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

Steph

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

Easy Come, Easy Ghost

I loved this book with its mystery, humor, and a bit of romance. I loved the realistic anxiety Audrey experiences with her upcoming wedding. Her pets are quite amusing. The future in-laws were amazing and so accepting. I really enjoyed this book and the others in this series. I highly recommend this Author and her works.

Sharon

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

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

Witch Way to Romance & Ruin

This series and the characters are great! I can't wait for more!

Angela Firuccia

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

What the Hex

Good story with strong characters, mystery, murder, humor, and a little romance. Satisfying ending with a promise of more to come. Very enjoyable.

Cathy Brown

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

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

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

The Ghost Is Clear

I just love reading this series. Each one is unique.
Jane Hinchey is such an amazing author. I highly recommend reading any or all of her books. I love the character of Audrey. Can't wait to read more in this series of books...

Becky Brown

Ghost Mortem

I fell so in love with Audrey and her beau in this one! This is going to be a great series!

Penny Noble

Easy Come Easy Ghost

Audrey is heading to Chicago with Kade to meet her future in-laws. Audrey is just so appealingly relatable. She is clumsy, says the wrong thing, and has a hard time standing up to her family; she is a heroine for us regular folks. These stories are so funny and really different from all the other cozy mysteries. A dead woman on the golf course and her future in-laws are helping with the investigation, what could go wrong? This was the best story yet, and I look forward to more and more of Audrey.

Jodi B

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

I LOVE YOUR BOOKS!!! The Ghost Detective series has almost ruined me for other ghost mysteries! They are laugh out loud mysteries. I have preordered #3

DeeDee Harrison

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

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

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

Give up the Ghost

I love Audrey! The characters are great. I can't wait to read more and see where these latest developments go in her PI business and personal life.

Angela Firuccia

Life Ghost On

I absolutely love this series, it's filled with action, intrigue, and humor. I can't wait to read more from this author. I received this book as a Free ARC copy to read, and I voluntarily leave this review.
