Meet Jenna

Jenna Bennett is the bestselling, award-winning author of almost 50 books, most of them in the subgenres of mystery and suspense.

She began her career in 2007 as Jennie Bentley, with the New York Times bestselling Do-It-Yourself home renovation series, featuring designer Avery Baker and handyman Derek Ellis, who renovated houses and solved mysteries in Waterfield, Maine.

From there, Jenna went into indie publishing with the USA Today bestselling Cutthroat Business mysteries, featuring southern belle turned real estate agent Savannah Martin and Savannah's frenemy, then boyfriend, then husband, fan favorite Rafe Collier, the guy many readers call "my favorite book boyfriend."

Her most recent project is the Pippa Darling mysteries, a Golden Age mystery series featuring Bright Young Thing Philippa Darling, Pippa's cousin Christopher, and Christopher's cousin Crispin, Viscount St George, future Duke of Sutherland, who solve murders and dig up family secrets in 1926 England.

    “I have loved this series since book 1 and have enjoyed being along for the ride as Savannah has grown from the princess on the hill who tried to live up to her mother’s outdated expectations into a strong woman who stands up for her own beliefs and the man she loves. Jenna Bennett has tackled a sensitive subject with honesty, Southern charm, and laugh out loud humor. ”
