What Reader's are Saying

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!

I love reading about the character of Audrey.
And this is another wonderful book in this series. Loved reading and highly recommend reading this wonderful series of books...

Becky Brown

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

Linda Ross

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Easy Come, Easy Ghost

I loved this book was funny in so many ways. Kade's family are amazing with how they've accepted Audrey and her ways. Looking forward to much more and hopefully more of Kade's family as well. Yet again, another great book.

Steph

Witch Way to Romance & Ruin

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

Angela Firuccia

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

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

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

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

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

All in Vein

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

Trish

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

Witch Way Series

the Witch Way series is a must read and are fantastic

I have read and reviewed each Witch Way book so far and love them. The entire series is a must read - I just can't pick one!

Merry

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 Blade

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

Penny Noble

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

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

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

It's hard enough for Audrey to meet her future in-laws for the first time without having a ghost appear and her start talking to it. But her in-laws are great, and they go looking for the body of the ghost and then get involved in solving her murder. Audrey is her usual clumsy self, and, as usual, the ghost is very little help. Great characters, so laugh-aloud moments, and a well-plotted mystery.

Michelle C

Battle of the Hexes

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

Angela Firuccia

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

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

What the Hex

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

Sheila

Awakening Series Collection

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

Penny Noble

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 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!

Penny Noble

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

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.

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

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

The Ghost is Clear

I kept thinking I know who the murderer was, but I was completely wrong. Audrey is a great character, and I just love her to death.

Penny Noble

Fur the Hex of It

"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.

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.

Angela Firuccia

Easy Come Easy Ghost

Each book makes me fall in love with Audrey more. She’s scrappy, funny, accident-prone, addicted to coffee, and downright wonderful. She's going with Kade to Chicago to meet his parents for the first time. Of course, she sees a ghost, and the parents jump in on the mystery-solving tour. It’s a fun read, and I can’t recommend this book or the series more. If you like a humorous mystery cozy, this one is definitely for you.

Michalle Hunziker

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

Fur the Hex of It

Loved reading this wonderful book by author Jane Hinchey. Holly is such an awesome character.
I highly recommend reading this book or any book by this wonderful author...

Becky Brown

Witch Way to Murder & Mayhem

I loved reading this wonderful book. I loved all the characters, especially Gran.
I love reading a wonderful cozy mystery. This is the first one I have read with
paranormal characters. It won't be my last. Can't wait to read more of Jane Hinchey's books.

Becky Brown

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

Easy Come, Easy Ghost

Audrey and Kade go away to visit his parents and soon wind up with another mystery on their hands. Audrey meets her future in-laws along with solving another crime, all while trying not to spill her biggest secret to everyone.

Cindy Baldwin

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.
