Editorial Reviews

Review

"DiBenedetto has done a great deal of research into the location, feeling comfortable dropping details into the mix that really contribute to the immersion. This is also a beautifully presented book - thorough compliments to the artists involved - and it is full of excitement and adventure, with some really engaging plots weaved throughout. It's a thrill to read, packed with great characters and complex mysteries, and it's oh-so-difficult to not recommend." Self-Publishing Review, 4½ Stars
 
One of the best things about Finders Keepers is the exciting chase and uncertainty in the book. Jane is a wonderfully strong and well developed character who makes the ideal young adult heroine. There is mystery, adventure, and lots of excitement that makes the readers want to get their hands on the next book of The Jane Barnaby Adventures.  - SeriousReading.com

Finders Keepers by J.J. DiBenedetto introduces readers in an unforgettable way to The Jane Barnaby Adventures, a series that seems very promising. Jane Barnaby receives the simple assignment to transport her archaeology professor's tool box and car from Oxfordshire to an archaeological site in Spain, a distance of 1,400 miles. It would have been an easy task except for the fact that Jane picks up the wrong box and it just happens that it contains a coveted treasure, one that people will kill to lay their hands on. The box she carries contains artifacts from Ancient Egypt and this makes Jane a target. This breathtaking story presents nonstop action that will entertain readers immensely as they watch Jane and her companions -- fake or real -- racing against time and distance, fleeing from enemies they cannot name. 

A brilliant plot, out-of-the-box and utterly engaging characters, and heart-stopping suspense are elements that make this story a fun read. I love Egypt and everything about its history and tradition, but it wasn't the idea of Egyptian artifacts that gripped my attention so much. It was this urge to know what would happen to the artifacts, in whose hands would they be found at the end of the story, and how the archaeology professor would react when he discovers the wrong item has been picked up. But there is so much action for the reader to speculate upon. J.J. DiBenedetto knows just how to build up the tension in readers. He'll have you enthralled, turning the pages, and plagued with the desire to find out what will happen to the lovely protagonist. The writing is polished and beautiful. Finders Keepers is the book that will excite and entertain readers beyond measure. Highly recommended! -  Christine Sia for Readers Favorite

J J DiBenedetto has done it again with his first "Jane" book. I've been a huge fan of the "Dream Series" (if you haven't read them, you should check them out), so I wasn't sure what to expect with the new Jane Barnaby series. Let me say, this book does not disappoint. Jane Barnaby is an American student at Oxford University. She's a little lonely, grieving the loss of her mother, and her day includes a ritual where she chooses a stone and places it under a tree in memory of the mother she misses so much. All of this she hides from her father who's dealing with his own grief. She's an anthropology student and her favorite professor is from her home - the Bronx. DiBenedetto does a good job of setting up the background rather quickly before he jumps into the meat of the story, and meaty it is.

Jane's professor asks her for an unusual favor - to drive his brand new Hummer from Oxford to Mallorca in Spain and to bring with her a box of pottery shards he's been collecting for the past 20 years. All of this would be fine except for two things: 1. Jane has never driven a car with the driver's side on the right, and 2. Someone wants the box she's supposed to deliver.

The story proceeds with Jane's biggest problem being missing turns because she's having to focus on driving on the left side of the road to running from whoever wants the box. She can't be sure who to trust and at times, her intuition betrays her. The story had it's hilarious moments as Jane watches the Hummer drive away and she and her newfound accomplice go on the chase, but it's also full of excitement as you wonder what's really in the box that everyone between London and Mallorca seems to want.

Bottom line - I couldn't put it down. Fun and well-written. Bravo, Mr. DiBenedetto!

I really enjoyed this book. Having read the Dream Doctor series by this author and loving it, I shouldn't have been surprised. There were a few places that things didn't quite make sense to me, but I thoroughly enjoyed this fast paced adventure anyways. Looking forward to the next one.

STORY LINE:

Author J.J. Dibenedetto has created a novel with adventure, action, thieves and stolen antiquities. American, Jane Barnaby, is attending Oxford; her advisor, Professor Welldon, ask her to deliver his new car and a box of pottery shards to him in Mallorca, Spain where he is vacationing.

Through a series of mishaps and mistakes, Jane unintentionally retrieves a box of antiquities and the adventure of a life time begins. The box is stolen from Jane and she races across France along with 2 sidekicks to retrieve the box. Are these two friend or foe? Jane met Alex Coggins on the ferry as she travels from England to France and Tom Barker shows up in France stating he is an employee of the Bodleian Library from which the antiquities originated.

Come along for a map-cap adventure as Jane races across France to Spain and her vacationing advisor, Professor Welldon with two men that could her friend or they could be the enemy.

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, AND DEVELOPMENT:

This is an action filled novel with skillful character development and plotting. The plots just keep coming; Jane questions her opinion of her sidekicks, their intentions, and her attraction to Alex.

"Obviously this man wasn't just gorgeous, with a killer voice and charm to spare-he had real talent and serious brains going for him as well. He was too good to be true."

Ms. Dibenedetto kept the drama at high peak as her characters race to find the original box of antiquities, elude the thieves, solve the mystery, and retrieve Professor Welldon's box. Ms. Dibenedetto's talent in keeping the suspense at high pitch was clear. I thought several times I had the plot worked out, to find I was wrong.

Jane Barnaby is a student attending Magdalen College, in England, and is asked by Professor Welldon to drive his new vehicle along with a box of pottery fragments to Spain.

When it becomes apparent that there was a mix up with the boxes Jane, along with Tom Barker, must get the right box to Professor Welldon without losing the other box that they are carrying while trying to get away from people who want what she mistakenly has.

I enjoyed this book and I thought Jane was a great character and full of spunk. That being said I thought she was quite naive at the beginning of the book and had no idea why she trusted like she did. Through the book she began to become a stronger character but she still seemed to trust more than she should have when she could've just escaped earlier from the circus that she got herself into. I'm still not sure where Alex's alliances lay, even at the end of the book.

I would definitely give the author another read as I did enjoy Jane's driving!

After reading JJ DiBenedetto’s other series, I was excited to read this new book. This was completely different, not what I was expecting at all. And I was not disappointed in the least. I liked the strong-headed, no-nonsense character of Jane Barnaby immediately. She has so much spunk and isn’t afraid to take on anything! That was proven soon enough as the action took off almost from page 1 and didn’t seem to let up until the very end. I never knew what to expect: missing artifacts, crooks, car chases. It’s a great story that never slows down. Can’t wait to see what DiBenedetto has for us next time.
