Pretty Little Mess: A Jane Luck Adventure
She’s a madcap adventurer at heart (sprinkled with a dash of mercenary and a heap of naiveté) who goes on thrilling international adventures, stares death in the face, and barely makes it out unscathed. She’s wild and wildly conflicted, but at first glance, you may not be able to tell.
That’s because the decidedly unlucky Jane Luck is like a duck gliding on water, and on the surface it looks like she’s paddling toward a bright future with focus and ease.
The daughter of well-meaning but troubled parents who struggle with violence, addiction and infidelity, Jane leaves home to pursue her lifelong dream to study architecture in the city of purported brotherly love, Philadelphia. However, the elements of her past which travel with her almost cause her complete undoing.
In this first installment in the JANE LUCK ADVENTURES series, we find a floundering young college student whose staunch religious beliefs are a grounding force, but also a source of constant angst as she struggles to reconcile them with her humanity. When she gets a rare opportunity to cast off her cares during an escapade in Bermuda, a perfect storm of burnout, self-doubt, religious guilt, youthful sexuality, and the obsession of a deranged kidnapper, could send her over the edge.

Things Fall Together: A Jane Luck Adventure
The best laid plans of young, naive, overzealous women often go awry. Jane Luck’s plan to live life in the city as a fearless, free-spirited designer has instead left her homeless and buried under a mountain of student debt.
Worse than that is the fact that she’s still struggling to process the loss of her two lovers: her beguiling mentor, Jack, who she killed in self-defense, and Ali, the one who stood by her side when it all happened.
All she wants is a safe place to land and recover. But she has nothing close to rest when she becomes the target of a band of vengeful, Liberian ex-warlords who see her as a key to her boyfriend’s riches. She’s swept up in another unexpected adventure, this time in the land where her ancestors once attempted to create a haven of peace for Black Americans on African soil.
This, yet another trial by fire, strips her of a few more layers of fear and self-doubt. And just when she thinks her life is truly falling apart, some very important things may be falling into place.
