New Release!


                                                           




 My newest book, Finding Cade, Branches of Time, #4, has just been released in both Kindle and paperback!

Read the description to see what exciting words are about to come your way, then click on any linked title to take you directly to the Amazon page.


Cade Kent Kestler has been a caring and protective brother, always watching out for his daring sister, Skye, since the day she was born.  But this time he had to take care of himself.

Cade and Skye only recently learned that their parents had time-traveled with them from 2035 to 1885 as children, in order to find a safe way of living.  Now that the secret is out and they have learned how to time travel themselves, the adventurous Skye was eager to seek out her ancestors and immerse herself in their lives, but Cade was against this practice, saying it was dangerous and would only lead to trouble.  Unfortunately, the time has now come when Cade has no choice.  He has to use their secret power in order to save himself from a fight that was about to prove deadly.  Escaping the only way he knew how, he pressed his secret button and discovered he had gone farther back than he had planned.  He was now in 1831 in a Potawatomi village along the shores of Lake Michigan.

Who are these people, and how will they receive him?  Why does he feel so comfortable here?  How is it possible that he can understand their language?  And why does he feel a close connection to the lovely Kewaunee, the native woman who saved his life?

When Skye discovers her brother is missing, the frantic search begins.  She turns to the love of her life, Remington Hart, a man from the future who first came to take her back to the year where she belonged.  Remington has a tracking device which should be able to find Cade, but it has failed.  Rem has promised Skye he will do all he can to find Cade, but will it be enough?  Will Cade be lost to them forever?  Will Skye and Rem’s love survive the turmoil?

Continue this family saga with Finding Cade, Branches of Time, Book 4.  There is danger everywhere as the future encroaches on the past.  Who will survive and who will not?

If you’re a fan of Diana Gabaldon and the Outlander, you will love this series.

Spring, here we come!!

     I hope you had a wonderful Easter. It's a time of hope for the future and reflections on the past.

I already have a list of things I want to accomplish this season, now that we are able to move about more easily here in the Midwest. How about you?
First and foremost is publishing my next book, Finding Cade. I have a deadline in my head for sometime in May. I think I"m on track if I don't spend too much time writing here. Ha ha. And I'm so excited because I now have the title for the book after that!
But really, my list is for time with my family, especially my husband. We are going to do small day trips once a week to local tourist places within our state that we tend to overlook because they're always there. My city is growing, but more importantly it seems to be updating at warp speed. Everything is shiny and new downtown. There are so many new restaurants to sample, small shops, and a few new parks to walk. I look forward to picnics at Lake Michigan and to watching the boats go through the channel from Muskegon Lake to Lake Michigan. That last one probably sounds silly to anyone who does not live near water, but to me it is one of the most relaxing things I can do. Just find a bench and watch the boats go by. And it's even better with a book in hand. The sounds of the boat motors putting slowly along ( channel speed is 'no wake') and the lapping waves does me a world of good.
What are your plans for spring and summer? Do you like to sit outside and read? Favorite authors? Do you have any new titles you'd like to suggest? Let's call this a sharing day. I'm truly interested.

National Vietnam War Veterans Day

 


    
                                                                        1967-1969

Today is National Vietnam War Veterans Day. I like to take a moment to thank those who fought so bravely so many years ago.

(Copied form the Internet)
"29 March is a fitting choice for a day honoring Vietnam veterans. It was chosen to be observed in perpetuity as March 29, 1973 was the day United States Military Assistance Command, Vietnam was disestablished and also the day the last U.S. combat troops departed Vietnam Day."
Although my husband was not in Vietnam, he was in the Pacific in Taipei, Taiwan for two years working in his trained field as communications technician. Without the support of all of the Vietnam Era Military, those that were 'in country' could not have done their jobs.
We appreciate you all! Thank you for your service.

Spring is Coming!

 


The weather this week looks like anything but Spring, but the facts remain. It's on its way. So here's a little spring picture for you.

Imagine yourself at a warm beach or relaxing in a back yard lawn chair with one of my books in your hands. The warm breeze moves across your body, flowers are blooming everywhere, the birds are singing , and the squirrels are scampering around a nearby tree. Off in the distance you hear a dog bark and you are helpless to keep your eyes open. Are you dreaming of Skye and Rem? Are you wondering what has happened to Cade? Are you trying to guess what is in store for our time-travelers? The answers are coming soon. I promise. And I never break a promise.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

 


I wrote about the McCauley family in honor of my Irish heritage.  I didn't know they would steal my heart.  Let me know if they do the same for you.

The Ides of March

 



The Ides of March is Upon Us, Beware the Ides of March.
Do you believe in superstitions? Typically, this day is considered a bad luck day similar to Friday the 13th, which has no meaning for me at all. I simply don't pay any attention to it.
Today is far from a bad luck day for me, because I can announce to all of my audio listeners that The 13th Lighthouse, Book #1 of The Lighthouse Trilogy, is now available on audio! I am slowly going through all of my books, so I will follow up with The Painted Duck on audio soon.
I have to say it was fun re-visiting my old friends again and spending time with Belle as she traveled West Michigan while trying to solve the unanswered questions her mother left behind after her death.
If you haven't given The Lighthouse Trilogy a try, you might enjoy reading this romantic, family saga. It's also available on Kindle, Kindle Unlimited, and in paperback. Here's the link.
And don't forget to help a gal out and leave those all important reviews.
Thank you for reading Jane O'Brien books!

And As Promised!

 Yes, I know.  I promised another announcement, so here it is.

I have finally settled on my next book cover and I"m giving you a sneak peek.  Now don't hold me to it; there may be some tweaks along the way, but for the most part, this is it.

What do you think?  Can you guess what is about to happen?  I suspect you would be wrong, but that's part of the fun; isn't it? Let me know your thoughts.  I'd love to hear them.
