This Just In!!!!

The Jade and Sage Thriller series being relaunched with new covers!!!!

The critically acclaimed thriller author and podcaster Joanna Vandervlugt has a brand-new look!!!!

Dealer’s Child

Jade Thyme must delve into her mother’s free-spirited past if she wants to prove her father was murdered and hadn’t died from a cocaine overdose.

Legislative Clerk Adam Younghusband gives Jade damning evidence linking her to the island’s once feared drug dealer, Oscar Cooper. Immediately Jade and her sister Sage are targets as they uncover generations of drug dealers, while hiding from an arsonist determined to destroy them. Is it all connected? From her mother’s ghost appearing on the picnic table to a possessed typewriter tapping a warning, 1968 clashes with the present as Jade uncovers a deadly secret while trying to stay one step ahead of a murderer hellbent on revenge.

The Unravelling

Jade Thyme celebrates successfully defending her ex-husband Jules Cranbury on a murder charge. Her celebration is short-lived when she finds Jules murdered. Jade investigates and uncovers a secret justice society whose members hide behind white tabs and black robes while delivering their own vigilante justice. Jade locates a once prominent and respected lawyer, now known as Noxzema Man, homeless and panhandling in Fan Tan Alley. He warns Jade. Judges, lawyers and police make up the Society. Trust no one. The MotoCityDolls, her sister’s all-female motorcycle gang, save Jade from a Society assassin. Forced to take a leave of absence, Jade packs up her office, but not before coming face-to-face with Jules’s murderer.

Such an exciting, mysterious, spooky book. Besides wondering which fellow the main character would end up with, I was also wondering which character in the book was the murderer – who by the way was truly gruesome, but I loved it! The story kept me coming back for more and the action scenes had me running faster then expected on my treadmill! When can we read more about these characters? Is there another book coming? I love them!” – Linda of Lanyos Handmade

“Twisted like the winding roads of Victoria, B.C., this legal thriller has you itching to check out the cobbled streets of Victoria, in hopes of finding the connections that ensure you end up on the right side of the street – or in this case, the law. A special nod goes to the author who also illustrated the book’s cover. This is a book worth getting a print copy of so you can really hold on tight.” – The Self Publishing Agency
