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 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

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

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.

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!

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

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

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

Who Ghost There

Love reading this wonderful series of books. Such awesome characters.
Each has such a unique plot. I highly recommend reading any or all of her wonderful books...
Loved reading this book...

Becky Brown

Easy Come, Easy Ghost

It's nerve-wracking enough meeting the parents for the first time... throw in a ghost and some kooky senior-agers and mayhem ensues. I love this series... and the video calls with Thor, and Bandit were awesome. Thor is such a drama queen.

Angela Firuccia

Ghost Detective Series

This is such a fun, amazing, and must-read series! I can't wait for more!

Jennifer Wertz

Ghost Detective Series

All the books in this series are absolutely amazing highly recommend them. Brilliant storytelling brilliant characters just brilliant.

Stephanie Horan

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

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

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

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

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

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

Witch Way Down Under

I love this world and the characters in it.

Angela Firuccia

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 any more…well let’s just say that I’m proven wrong!

Terry Williams

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

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

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

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.

Jennifer Wertz

Easy Come, Easy Ghost

The clumsy PI and dashing police detective are moving ahead toward walking down the aisle. Meeting his folks- cool, except for the ghosts on the plane.

Getting outed by a ghost in their apartment- unexpected. Having the senior Galloways ready to dip into a murder investigation and having them not bat an eye over her psychic skills? Pricelessly awesome.

Bad guys, crazy actors, bad actors, and an evil acting sister-in-law trying to take over the wedding- maddening. Also, par for the course for Audrey- who is exactly as hilariously awful on a golf course as I had imagined

sweet, sad, and horrific mixed with butt-kicking women seeking justice

Molly

Who Ghost There

This time Audrey is eyeballs deep in ghosts and mayhem. And Thor is on a diet?!? Plus... there's a hunky new neighbor. I think this may be my favorite mystery so far.

Angela Firuccia

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 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

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

Ghost Detective Series

I loved it!

Rachel J Bell

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

First Blood

5 stars

This final book in the Awakening series is a good one. We catch up with a pregnant Georgia in the middle of a bad dream, or is it a premonition? Either way, she knows she must be on her guard since women have been disappearing in the area. When one of the witches from her coven disappears, Georgia, Zak, Skye, and the guys are off to hunt demon ass.

Zak is worried, but Georgia is sure she can protect herself. Being pregnant with a powerful baby is not easy, but sometimes it is helpful. Their little jelly bean won’t let its picture be taken at the doctor’s office, but it makes itself known in other ways. A little boost to mommy’s powers is always helpful. There will be a death and a birth, a new friend will be made, and an old friend will return to join in the fight.

I sure hope Jane is going to give us some more stories with the other members of the team. I can’t wait.

VaWineLover

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

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

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

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!

Here Ghost Nothing

This is the fifth book in this series, and it’s still going strong! I love Audrey's relationship with Galloway; he is just so accepting of her and her flaws, and he believes her about seeing ghosts.

Penny Noble

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

An original storyline for a change!
