Jane of the Jungle is debut fiction from author Jane Baskin. The book is a finalist in the General Fiction category of the 2011 Foreword Book Of The Year Awards.
JANE is a respected trauma nurse specialist, who suddenly finds herself broke and out of a job after her husband's death from a lingering illness. Fold?...Or play? Armed only with a facelift and a nine millimeter, she defies her situation and hits the road in a converted tour bus that runs on manure. With nothing left to lose, she encounters a sudden flood of adventure, crime, unexplainable events, new friends, new enemies, and of course, true love.
Can a telepathic tiger be a guide? Can a talking fox predict the future? Can a bunch of misfit bikers make a new town? Can a reluctant mobster make a new life?
Most of all, can we get second chances in life, if we are smart enough to cheat death, shrewd enough to evade our enemies, and brave enough to believe that magic is real?
