Jane Pate is a woman with a mission. Determined, strong and focused on what she does, she is a fiercely independent person whose choice of profession is as unusual as she is. Other than being a snake catcher, she also doubles up as a writer who has an annoyingly handsome and "gets on your nerves with his audacity" publisher called Reginald Faircloth. When both put their heads together to solve the secret behind the secret marijuana plantation coming up on Reginald's land, sparks begin to fly all over the place. As the mystery deepens and begins to unravel, the plot takes various interesting twists and turns to finally reveal the truth and leave you wanting more.
"Totally unputdownable" is how I would rate his book. It is one of those rare books nowadays that one would want to read from start to finish in one go. Jane and her spirit grow on you and her struggle to find her own space and survive are heartwarming. Reginald with his endearingly straightforward personality and intelligence is an exceptionally well fleshed-out character. Their partnership is perfect and the situations the unlikely duo finds themselves in are hilarious and at the same time dangerous.
Are they going to solve the puzzle or just end up getting pulled deeper into the vortex of crime? Is Jane going to go her own way after marrying her fiancée Cody or fall for the high and mighty Reginald? Does she actually dislike him as much as she thinks she does? Read on and you will be surprised. An excellent read for the wonderful thrills and subtle romance in the plot. "Wherefore Art Thou, Jane?" by Jean James and Mary James is a book you should put on your "must read" list.
