Jane Toombs

 

Jane Toombs lived on the south shore of Lake Superior in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula wilderness. She passed away on March 5, 2014.  During her lifetime she produced over ninety novels and twenty-five novellas. She was published in every genre except men’s action and erotica, but paranormal was her favorite. Most of Jane’s works were published during the heyday of the mainstream press. Tired of the restrictions, Jane was one of the pioneers of electronic publishing and with the permission of Jane’s son Robert Jamison, Jane’s works will continue to be published by Books We Love for the enjoyment of future readers.

Alitha is aboard her father's ship, heading to the Sandwich Islands where she plans to marry Thomas, a minister. After surviving the wreck of her father's ship, Alitha is cast adrift on a uninhabited island off the Pacific coast. Rescued eventually, first by Indians and then Esteban, a Californio (which is what the Spanish settlers were called). Believing herself in love with him, she travels with him to Mexico.

Meanwhile Jordan's ship is captured by pirates and, since his bride-to-be, Esteban's sister, is aboard, he loses both bride (she kills herself) and ship. He's cast adrift in Mexico. Thomas, hearing of the wreck of the Flying Yankee, also winds up in Mexico, searching for Alitha. The pirates are refurbishing their two ships in Mexico--like the other characters, in the Baja peninsula. Will Alitha be captured by the pirates? And, in the end, which man will she choose to marry?

He never gives up searching for her, even after she is abducted by a Chinese pirate and taken to Amoy. He’ll need all his ability as a swordsman to survive long enough to rescue her.

This is truly an odyssey for Rommel and Adrien as he keeps losing her and must set off to find her once more. Travel is by Dutch East India ship, by junk and by raft.

"This story hooked me in and kept me guessing till the very end. A great, fast read when you have a couple hours to kill. (lol). Reminds me of the style of the other gothic greats: Victoria Holt, Phyllis A. Whitney, Barabara Michaels, Velda Johnston, etc. Worth the read! :)" ~ 5 Stars, Shipper Amazon Verified Purchase

Perversely she reads it anyway. . Bram Hunter! Even though she left Phoenix with her family when she was sixteen, she's never forgotten him.

"I started browsing through the first few pages of this book and soon found I couldn't put it down. This is the complete collection of Jane Toomb's Golden Chances series, which has seven books. I went from one book to the next and finished in just a couple of days. It's a family saga spanning generations, children are born and family members pass, with a healthy dose of romance and mystery. And I have to say, book seven has one of the most satisfying conclusions to a series I've ever read. I closed the book (okay, shut off my Kindle...) with a big smile on my face. I really enjoyed Golden Chances." ~5 Stars, Yankee Fan, Amazon Reader and Verified Purchase

"I loved this set of books. I spent most of two days reading them one after the other and could not put them down. I loved that it went thru several generations of the same families and how they all fit into the scheme of things around them. I so totally recommend this set of books to everyone. ENJOYED every page of it!!" ~ Donna Standish, Amazon Reader and Verified Purchase
 



Hallow House

Thirteen West 
 
Ever been inside a state psychiatric hospital?  That's an experience Sarah Goodrow Fenz had hoped never to repeat.  Years ago, as a young woman, she'd been a student nurse taking her psychiatric affiliation at the state hospital.  Now, matured and affluent enough, with an adult daughter by her side, Sarah is suddenly compelled to pick up a drunken derelict off the streets of San Diego and take him to a motel. Leaving her daughter standing speechless in the street, Sarah hails a cab, shoves the derelict inside and rides away.
  
Compelling, horrifying and too real to ignore, Thirteen West.  Can love bloom in the midst of horror?

"As the story unfolded, I was touched by the character’s compassion. It’s easy to see why author Jane Toombs has a backlist of bestsellers and remains one of the most cherished authors of our time. Mastering the art of building suspense while creating memorable characters, author Jane Toombs turns this novel into another respected work of literary genius. 

The dialogue will keep readers in fits of laughter while the story itself will keep readers invested in the work of Jane Toombs. Sharply written, Thirteen West entertains throughout. I often found myself cautiously peering around the next corner while walking down the hallways of a fictional psychiatric hospital embedded with secrets and its share of horrors.   

Having worked as a psych tech in psychiatric hospital, I can tell you with absolute certainty-Jane Toombs capitalized on her personal knowledge by writing a clever fiction novel her fans won’t soon forget.  Kudos to Jane Toombs. Once again, you blew me away. I’ll recommend Thirteen West for many years to come." ~Reviewed by Destiny Blaine~
