The Midnight Chronicles by Jane Hinchey

One Minute to Midnight

#1 The Midnight Chronicles

Part of the Magic & Mayhem Universe

To protect the townsfolk of Assjacket, West Virginia, from my out of control, wonky magic, I'm unceremoniously thrown in the magic pokey. Until Baba Yaga herself offers me a lifeline. With conditions. Accept the role of magic bounty hunter or remain in the pokey indefinitely.

My first assignment? Track down a witch suspected of practicing blood magic. Armed with rusty investigative skills and a shaky handle on my magic, I'm determined to bring the rogue witch to justice and prove everyone in Assjacket wrong.

The trail takes me to New Orleans, and just when the witch is within reach, she slips away, leaving a dead body at my feet. Fortunately for me, smokin' hot local cop Jax Lincoln is on the case. Unfortunately for me, I'm his number one suspect.

Now I not only need to find the rogue witch but clear my name and prove to everyone back home that I'm not the disaster they think I am.

With All Hallows Eve fast approaching, I'm determined to one: get a handle on my magic before I blow up another building, two: apprehend the dark witch before she releases any more of her doodoo with the voodoo, and three: convince Jax that setting his pants on fire was purely accidental and that I'm not that bad a witch, I promise.

Meet magical bounty hunter, Midnight, in book one of the Midnight Chronicles, and part of the Magic & Mayhem Universe. Full of mystery, romance, and laughs, this book is suitable for lovers of cozy mystery and paranormal women's fiction.

Two Minutes Past Midnight

#2 The Midnight Chronicles

a romantic cozy mystery

Broom rage, failed rituals, and planted bodies…

How in the Goddess's name did I get stuck at the Bewildered Retirement Home in Hexville, Kentucky? One word. Baba Yaga. Actually, that's two, and it's a name, not a word, but whatever.

I thought my stint as a magic Bounty Hunter was over, but it appears Baba Yaga has other ideas. I can do as she suggests and investigate the shenanigans going down in the Bewitched Retirement Home where paranormals prep for the supernatural afterlife, or I can find myself enjoying some quality me-time back in the pokey.

Easy choice.

Turns out someone has been planting bodies in Flora, the plant Goddess's garden, and she's not happy about it. And who can blame her, although I have to say her hydrangeas are looking incredible!

But Witches aren't the only residents of Bewildered. Now I'm up to my neck in fury harpies, chaos fairies, slayer elves, and Bog Dragons. And while they may sound terrifying, watching them putter around on mobility scooters and walking frames, I'm hard-pressed to think any one of them is capable of murder. Until they all confess!

Welcome to Twinkerhell, where wands have a life of their own, cauldrons create indiscriminate potions, and storytime takes on a whole new meaning.

Meet magical Bounty Hunter, Midnight, in book two of the Midnight Chronicles and part of the Magic & Mayhem Universe. Full of mystery, romance, and laughs, this book is suitable for lovers of cozy mystery and paranormal women's fiction.

Third Strike of Midnight

#3 The Midnight Chronicles

In the doodoo with the voodoo…

Telling recently departed Mary Lou that death becomes her was mistake number one.

Mistake number two was leaving Aunt Tilly unsupervised.

Now I’m in the poopoo with the voodoo. Aunt Tilly was messing with things she had no business messing with, and after a spell went horribly wrong, she now thinks she’s Marie Laveau, New Orleans Voodoo Queen.

Reversing the spell should be easy, right? Wrong! Not when a band of marauding vampires joins forces with the fake Marie, intent on raising a voodoo army. I’m in a race against time to save Aunt Tilly and send Marie back to the afterlife where she belongs before a) New Orleans is lost to a supernatural Armageddon and b) Baba Yaga gets wind of my latest transgression and sends my butt back to the pokey.

Meet magical Bounty Hunter, Midnight, in book three of the Midnight Chronicles and part of the Magic & Mayhem Universe. Full of mystery, romance, and laughs, this book is suitable for lovers of cozy mystery and paranormal women's fiction.
