PLM eBook Cover FinalPretty Little Mess: A Jane Luck Adventure

Saintly or Sinful? Savage or Sublime? Kind or a Killer?

No one, including Jane Luck, knows what she’s capable of. She’s a heady, intrepid, free spirit exploring life while evolving out of the mind of a devout young girl and into that of a worldly woman.

The daughter of well-meaning but troubled parents who struggle with violence, addiction, and infidelity, Jane leaves home – against their wishes- to pursue her lifelong dreams in the city. Yet, the aspects 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 act as a grounding force. But they’re also a source of constant angst as she struggles to reconcile them with her humanity. When Jane gets a rare opportunity to cast off her cares during an escapade in Bermuda, a perfect storm of burnout, religious guilt, youthful sexuality, and the obsession of a deranged kidnapper, might send her over the edge.

Things Fall Together: A Jane Luck Adventure

The ideals of naive young women often fall short of reality. Jane Luck’s plan to live in the city as a fearless, free-spirited designer has instead left her homeless and buried under a mountain of student debt in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis.

What’s worse is that she’s still struggling to process the loss of a true love alongside guilt over the death of a false flame. All she wants is a safe place to land, but she can find no peace. After she becomes involved with a secretly wealthy classmate, a band of vengeful, Liberian ex-warlords begin to see her as a key to her boyfriend’s riches.

She’s swept up in another globe-trotting rampage in a war-torn land where her ancestors also once attempted to find serenity. This, yet another trial by fire, strips Jane of a few more layers of self-doubt and fear. And just when she thinks her life is truly falling apart, some very important things may be falling into place.
