Joe Leonard has problems. His writing has cost him his marriage; his job selling insurance is costing him his sanity. Looking for a sinecure to support his literary efforts, Joe decides to write romance novels. To better his chances of getting published, he, under the pseudonym Fiona Pilgrim, writes to June Featherstone, the doyenne of romance novelists, to enlist her support and guidance. Through an exchange of letters, June mentors Fiona. By the concluding chapter of Fiona´s novel, Tempestuous Summer—The Hottest Season, the two correspondents have grown to admire and respect each other. Friendship has blossomed. However, unless he expeditiously does away with Fiona, Joe will soon be exposed as the fraud he is, and his chances for publication—but more importantly his chances for love—will be forever lost. Joe Leonard has problems.

When you reach the twilight of your existence, look back on your life and realize you have accomplished all your desires; you have to share your fulfillment with the world, your children, your family, your dearest friends, and everyone who contributed to your well-being. If the saying Practice makes perfect goes, I hope it applies to me. This is my second attempt at writing a book, a sequel to my first one. I do not consider myself a literary writer, far from it. As a matter of fact, in my school years, not only couldnt I put two and two together, but composition was my second weakest subject. As English is not my mother language, its a double challenge. I have many times used dictionaries to prove my point. At an early age, playing with my dolls, I would tell them all kinds of stories, so you can say that I am more of a storyteller. This is my fairy tale as close to the truth as can be told however, to protect the anonymity of the characters, their names have been changed. Enjoy!

Jeni, the wife of a recently appointed diplomat, enjoys cultural intrigue and lasting friendships when she joins the exotic International Ladies of Bucharest. But when Jeni volunteers to help one of those friends solve a mystery on an old family vineyard, she learns that trips to Romania's wine country can be deadly. Two murders, with Jeni caught in the middle, have the police pointing fingers the wrong way. Jeni must fight against the clock to solve the mystery before she is arrested or, worse, becomes the true murderer's next victim. Praise For Secrets in the Vines… From CLARION REVIEW: "Golden's first-hand knowledge of Romania is fascinating." FROM BLUEINK REVIEW: "Nothing makes an overworked genre like mystery seem quite so fresh as a story set in an exotic locale. SECRETS IN THE VINES takes this theory to heart, offering up a murder mystery set in the wine country surrounding Romania. It's a winning formula." "Author Jane Golden drew on her own time in Bucharest to set up this tale, and it pays off nicely. Observations about the life of a foreigner trying to make sense of a new culture are spot-on and often funny; thoughts about parking customs and the laconic pace of government reflect an outsider's tendency to compare things to life at home, while also taking us deeper into the atmosphere. The mystery is gripping, but it's the setting that steals the show." The review concludes with this about SECRETS IN THE VINES: It has a "terrific pacing and a plot that ends well." Better yet, the reviewer states that "we're left wanting more of this juicy escapism." FROM KIRKUS REVIEWS: "An engaging mystery that turns the classic expatriate dream on its head." FROM Marian Petrutza, President of the Romanian-American Press Association: "The perfect vacation book....Colorful, entertaining, and beautifully written."
