Finders Keepers The Jane Barnaby Adventures Book 1 by J.J. DiBenedetto

Jane Barnaby Adventures Book 1
J.J. DiBenedetto
Light Suspense Thriller


archaeology student Jane Barnaby had to do was deliver a box of
pottery shards to her professor at his dig site, along with his new
car. Yes, his office was in Oxfordshire, and his dig site was in
Spain, a trip of 1,400 miles across three countries and two bodies of
water. Still, it should have been simple.

is, until everything went wrong.

Jane has the wrong box and is being chased by thieves who want it and
aren't particular about how they get what they want.

to that, she's picked up a pair of passengers who both claim they can
help her get her professor's pottery back and return the artifacts to
their rightful owner. If only she knew who was working with the
thieves and who she can trust in this high-stakes game of finders

.99 cents!**

She’d punched him!  Women weren’t supposed to do that!  If they got angry at you, they were 

only supposed to slap you.  Tom had endured his share of angry slaps – what bloke hadn’t?  But 

they were never very hard.  He’d step a little too far over the line, and some bird would slap his 

cheek, and later she’d get over it and they’d get on with business, or not.  Usually not.  That’s 

just how things were done. 

None of them had ever punched him.  Nobody had, not since he was sixteen, anyway.  And this 

girl had given it all she had.  He didn’t dare touch his teeth with his tongue, in case she’d 

loosened any of them.  She hadn’t bothered to listen to a word he’d said – what sort of lunatic 

was she?  He cursed himself for believing that dotty girl back at Oxford, that this Jane Barnaby 

was a reasonable person, that of course she’d understand the situation and help him bring the 

artifacts back home.

Why had he listened to a girl who talked to trees?  How could he ever have imagined anything 

good would come of that?

But he had, and now here he was, his jaw throbbing, the box of artifacts he was to retrieve gone, and the 
Barnaby girl looking perfectly ready to hit him again. 

Jane Barnaby Adventures Book 2


Barnaby had everything going her way: a prestigious internship at the
Museum of Natural History, a fantastic Upper West Side sublet
apartment, and helping plan her newly-engaged college friend's

a casual lunch with her friend’s fiancĂ© set off alarm bells, and
sent her digging into the rabbit hole that is his past.

that rabbit hole leads Jane and her on-again, off-again boyfriend to
the English countryside, uncovering secrets dating back to World War
2, searching for priceless art treasures looted by the Nazis, and
fighting off the thieves who will kill to get those treasures for
themselves, will they discover the truth, or lose their lives?


Brother's Keeper

Jane Barnaby Adventures Book 3


Barnaby has planned the perfect Christmas vacation. Her father and
his fiancé are joining her in Spain at her archaeological dig.
They'll see her work, meet her mentor, and they'll all enjoy a few
days of sunny Mediterranean beaches in the dead of winter.

it all falls apart when Jane's annoying brother tags along and lands
in jail for a crime he didn't commit.

To clear her brother's
name, all Jane has to do is chase a wily female con-artist across
Europe, catch her, and confront the woman and her accomplices. Oh,
and outwit an ex-KGB agent and his personal goon squad along the way.

DiBenedetto is author of the Dream Series and the Jane Barnaby
Adventures and lives in Arlington, Virginia with the love of his life
and a white cat who rules the roost. 

passions are photography, travel, the opera, the New York Giants, and
of course writing. 

DiBenedetto is devoted to writing books with a sense of mysticism to
entertain and perhaps invite his readers to suspend belief in a way
they might never have.

he was very young , he has always been intrigued with the
supernatural and things that can't be explained rationally.

always asking way too many questions, it piqued his interest to the
point of setting his writing off and running when he grew up! All the
curiosity building up all those years were finally getting put into
words to captivate readers. And it hasn't ended. His main goal is to
share all the stories he has inside, putting pen to paper. And that's
how the Dream Series was born.
