Book Spotlight on The Rise of Jake Hennessey by PJ MacLayne


Good Morning, Booklovers!
This week’s Book Spotlight features a suspense/action novel by PJ MacLayne. If you’d like to know more about PJ and her books (she also writes urban fantasy) check out her Author Interview on my JL Buck blog HERE.
Ally: Before we present your book, PJ, what may I get you to drink?
PJ: I don’t drink coffee. Truth is, I never learned to like it. I’ve tried, and the flavor doesn’t appeal to me-not even coffee-flavored candy. I used to drink orange juice in the morning, but now it’s plain water. I started taking a medication that requires an empty stomach and a cup of water at the start of my day. Bummer.
I will occasionally have a cup of tea. (My favorite is peach) mid-morning.  During the winter, I might indulge in a cop of cocoa. I don’t drink much soda either, so I end up sipping on water all day.
Ally: Sounds like it’s time for that peach tea, while I have my usual cup of black coffee! Now, let’s take a look at your book.


The Rise of Jake Hennessey
Genre: suspense/action

For 22 years, semi-retired jewel thief Jake Hennessey honored his promise to stay away from Harmony Duprie. He has no plans to change that… until Special Agent Doan Houck saunters into Jake’s bar, claiming Harmony’s life is in danger.
She’s not the only one in jeopardy. Jake is run over by a motorcycle and is the target of a drive-by shooting. He doesn’t know who to trust. Not the feds Not the local cops.
Not even Harmony.
But Jake will do anything to protect his ex-lover. Even if it means matching wits with an FBI agent, revealing old secrets, or ending up in prison. Again.
If it comes down to saving his life or Harmony’s, there is no choice at all.

About the Author:

Less than a year ago, I retired from my day job and moved halfway across the US, and am back in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania, which has given me the background for most of my books. I am the author of  the six The Harmony Duprie Mysteries, as well as the companion stories, The Fall of Jake Hennessey and The Rise of Jake Hennessey. I have also written The Free Wolves urban fantasy books.
Something unique/unusual that isn’t in your regular bio: “I don’t wear makeup. Currently, I don’t even own any. I used to occasionally wear eyeshadow, mascara and blush, but that’s it. I’ve never owned foundation. The closest thing I have to makeup is clear lip gloss for my chapped lips. Makes my morning routine simple!”
You can find PJ on various social media sites.
