I am so happy to announce that Book 3 of The Unforgettables is finally here. You can find both paperback and Kindle versions at Amazon.com. Believe me, if you have already read Ruby and Sal and Maisy and Max you won't want to miss this latest installment in the lives of Ivy and Fox. Starting in 1868 in the mountains of Ukraine to the present day in Whitehall Michigan, this romantic story will take you on a magical ride of mystery and suspense. Sexy? Yes. Clean? Also yes, because it can be done. Give it a try. I promise you won't see the twists and turns coming.
Now what else do you want to add to your list for Christmas?

The time is nearing for the newest book in The Unforgettables series, Ivy and Fox, to be published. The proof copy should arrive this week, and if I like what I see, I will agree to publish it immediately. I am hoping to get it to you in time for Christmas to order either in paperback or Kindle.
In the meantime, since I am in such a holiday spirit, I'm working on a novella for next Christmas. It will be difficult to shelve it for next year, but I think it's best rather than try to push it through for this year.
Don't forget, you can go straight to the Jane O'Brien Author page on Amazon and see all of my books in one place. Here's the link:
P.S. Be sure to read any series in order. That way you won't spoil the surprises. Jane O'

Ruby and Sal
I am honored to receive this wonderful review from Reader's Favorite.
Reviewed by Romuald Dzemo for Readers' Favorite
Ruby and Sal by Jane O'Brien is the first book in The Unforgettables
series, gripping and utterly fascinating. Encouraged by her friend,
Ivy starts writing the story of her great-grandmother, Ruby, a
woman who lived to be 102 years old. Now, the author is
transported into the life and experiences of her great-grandmother,
living through the challenging times of the Great Depression in the
1920s and the 1930s. What follows is a tale of hardship and
romance. It is interesting to notice the historical elements of the
period within which this story is set. This is a novel that will capture
the hearts of fans of women's fiction and historical novels as well as
those who love romance. A story that connects two lives in a
mysterious way — one ebbing and another budding!
The story starts in the nursing home, with Ivy feeling feverish with
quickened breathing, trying to calm her nerves. The author
captures her mood and feelings every time she visits the place. I
found it to be a very interesting way to open a story that is
emotionally and psychologically intense. The characters, especially
the heroine of the story, are well-developed and readers will enjoy
watching them evolve against a memorable background. Jane
O'Brien has a unique gift for setting and the ability to blend
political, historical, and cultural elements into the story in a way
that makes it cinematic, feeding readers vivid images. Ruby and Sal
is a satisfactory read, indeed. You won’t find it easy putting it down.
