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

Which Way Collection

Again another amazing series with great storytelling and characters all of Jane's books are amazing, highly recommend.

Stephanie Horan

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.

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

Witch Way to Secrets & Sorcery

I really like the characters, and I would have liked to have seen Whitney more, but when she’s there, she’s hilarious. As with the other books in the series, this was well-written, and I like that her boyfriend doesn’t keep telling her to quit sleuthing.

Penny Noble

Witch Way to Murder & Mayhem

I loved this new world and all the new characters. So much fun!

Angela Firuccia

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

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

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

Wild Ghost Chase

Who is Gianna Tate? What and why do we learn about her? What has Audrey done that she regrets? Where was she headed? What is going on and why does Audrey go to Galloway's house? Will they get to their destination? What happens when Galloway starts to apologize to Audrey? Who are Amanda, Caroline, and Caroline? Where do we find Audrey and Caroline? Best quote early in the book, "Secrets, murder and gambling. Three of my favorite things." Who do we find at Gianna's house? Where do they all work? What does Audrey learn about straw? Oh, how Audrey loves to torture Amanda. That was so funny!!!! Why does Gallway tell Audrey no? Who are Seb, Harry, and Troy? How does Audrey know or meet each of these men? What does Galloway propose to Audrey about Seb? What does she say? What do we find out when the warrant is served? I have to admit that I did NOT see the who in "who dun it?" coming that came. What was happening with Gianna? Read and see!

Dana Burk

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

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.

Jennifer Wertz

Witch Way Down Under

I love Witch Way Down Under. This book is engaging and exciting. This is an action-packed adventure. The mystery has many twists that keep you guessing until the end. This is a really fun and interesting book.

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

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

Ghost Detective Series

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

Linda Ross

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

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

Fur the Hex of it

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.

Tricia Wright

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

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!

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

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

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

Life Ghost On

Was Audrey ready for her wedding? Noooo, she had stress levels through the roof. There was going to be no peace, mentally or physically, until she could solve the mystery that had complicated her life at the last moment, and there was no doubt that Kade was the man for her. Very entertaining as Audrey struggles between the preparations for her wedding and the suspects in the case at hand. The investigations were interesting, intriguing and stimulating my imagination. There were a lot of fun scenes that made me chuckle a lot about the things that were happening to Audrey and the way she saw things. I liked the participation of Seb, his interesting friends, and especially Ben. I found it emotional, and I even shed a tear reading the last chapters. So many good and beautiful things! I felt like I was present at the ceremony. Mystery, ghosts, deceit, danger, amusing situations, strong emotions, pets, a lot of friends, and romance.

Dora Zeno

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.

Juanita Arp

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!

Becky Brown

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

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

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

First Blood

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

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

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

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

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

Wild Ghost Chase

Another amazing book. All of your favorite characters are back to solve another ghostly murder mystery with a side of blackmail thrown in. And spa day with Bandit is the best. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute!

Angela Firuccia

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

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

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

What the Hex

What the Hex was a quick read but a fun cozy mystery. It is book 3 in the series but there is still plenty of new action and adventure. Holly stumbles upon a dead man, who has clearly been murdered. Holly being Holly, isn't going to leave the investigations to the local police. In comes loveable Doris and Holly and Doris again work together. Holly is led to believe everything she thought was incorrect and doesn't know what or who to trust anymore. A great story where we learn more about some of the locals and get to know some new characters.

Bec

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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!
