Old Growth & Ivy

By Jayne Menard

Romance, Crime & mystery | Paperback, eBook


FBI agent extraordinaire, Steve Nielsen, begins his journey to expand beyond his dedication to his career and become the fuller man he desires to be. He has never left a case unsolved and never missed bringing the perpetrators to justice. He is tough and his standards are high, although even after over 35 years with the Bureau he maintains an aura of idealism that has earned him the moniker of "the boy scout." In the last five years, he has taken himself from an empty man with only his career to ready for the journey he has sought, prepared for and dreamed of. Working on what are to become his last cases -- a child prostitution ring and a drug trafficking enterprise -- he meets the alluring career executive, Ivy Littleton while seeking leads on money laundering transactions. While they get started in a confrontational manner, Ivy quickly realizes that even though Steve may be brash and demanding, his goals are to be admired. As their lives come together, Ivy witnesses the danger and challenges of Steve's world and becomes drawn into helping him and his team of three dedicated agents to chase down the perps, finding herself and Steve in deadly situations.

Jayne Menard long desired to write fiction, but as a corporate executive, too little time was in each day to turn her thoughts and daydreams into stories. Painting novels in the colors of nature to provide texture and context to situations and characters has now become her focus. She resides on the stunningly beautiful and rugged Oregon coast and has a devilishly playful Pembroke Welsh Corgi to lure her out for walks. She has published the first book in the planned Spook Hills trilogy, Old Growth and Ivy, with the second book of the trilogy, New Growth and Native Roots, due out early in 2016. The final novel of the series is planned for 2017 and will be called Noble Firs. Inspiration for her characters and novels may come from her life experience, daydreams and night dreams. Sometimes characters simply appear, demanding an audience. At other times, a character is needed and a unique personality walks on stage in her mind and then jumps onto her computer screen. The plots grow out of the characters. Wherever it makes sense, she also draws on her technical and business backgrounds.
