The Misfit Protection Program

Whistler’s Hollow has always been a quiet town. 

Despite the changes in the world around us, we managed to retain our small, country town veneer. Our picturesque Main Street drag, storybook houses, family-owned businesses, and schools are the envy of other cities in our state.

We survived the technological revolutions that rendered their main industries stagnant and their populations dwindle because we adapted.

Over twenty years ago, we accepted an offer, and it was the smartest thing we’ve ever done.

‘The Hostile Takeover’—as the town elders refer to it—allowed us to thrive when everything around us grew faded and worn.

Generous, yet mysterious, benefactors offered to purchase our town and keep it vibrant and prosperous on one condition: couples of child rearing age would agree to secretly adopt one child brought to them as a newborn. Without question, they would accept the child into their home and raise them as their own until they made their way into the world as an adult. Expenses would be taken care of, the town would be maintained, and our way of life would be preserved forever.

Doesn’t sound like such a hard bargain, does it?

Whistler’s Hollow is a WEIRD fucking town.

I moved home to figure out what triggered flags on my file for the F.B.I. background check. 

Since I arrived, I haven’t unearthed one clue why I’d be blackballed for growing up here. 

What I HAVE done is meet a glut of impossibly hot guys, gain two unwanted companions, and get stared at like a big bug by a group of citizens that would make Twin Peaks seem normal. 

The only things I’m certain of so far are small towns never change, and there has to be something in the water. 

Whatever secrets my small Midwest town holds, I’m going to unearth them all—or die trying.

It is neither intelligent nor polite to tell a true Southern woman with a gun she can’t do something.

But after I was informed my career with the F.B.I. was dead in the water, I packed up what little pride i had left and returned to my hometown. The one I never thought I’d ever set foot in again. Whistler’s Hollow.

When I left the Hollow 14 years ago, I never intended to return. But now I’m living in my childhood home, surrounded by hot guys, mischievous animals, and enough mystery for me to put my considerable talents to good use. 

Nothing is what it seems in this small Southern town, but I’m determined to unravel the tangled web of my past – before it destroys my future.

Jolene Athena Whitley left home a decade ago and has never looked back—until her dream job rejects her. Heartbroken, she vows to get her life back on track. If she can figure out the dirty secrets that flagged her file, the job as an FBI profiler is in the bag. 

It would be the perfect plan—if everything she knew about the past wasn’t a lie. Whistler’s Hollow is populated and governed by supernaturals Jolene doesn’t know exist, and until she emerges as one, she’ll never be able to see what’s right in front of her face. 

When she moves into her childhood home, everything goes awry: exotic animals invade her house, she lets her ex-bully seduce her, and her new job is teaching the snotty children of her former high school mean girls. 

Through all of this, Jolene is determined to follow the clues to reveal all of the Hollow’s secrets. What she doesn’t know is how many of them are also her own.

Bless her heart…this might get ugly.

I wake up alone, afraid, and furious.

My return to Whistler’s Hollow hasn’t given me the answers I seek; every question leads to a new mystery to solve.

Were my parents murdered? Who covered it up and why? What were they involved in and why can’t I remember most of my childhood?

The family I’ve forged while I search for the truth has changed me forever: Edgar, Wolfie, Doyle, Prez, Benjy, and my bestie Saoirse. But this town has secrets buried so deeply I’ll have to drag them out kicking and screaming, and when I do, everyone who kept me in the dark will be sorry.

My name is Jolene Athena Whitley and I will get the answers I seek—or die trying. 


Something is very wrong with me.

It’s not just the fire and ice within my veins that consumes me or the mysterious blackouts and dreams.

I followed the woman’s instructions to the letter, but for a brief second, I saw and heard things that cannot be forgotten. 

There are more things in this world than I ever dreamed—and I’m about to find out what they are.

That is, if I survive the mysterious people trying to kill me.

Everything I thought I knew about the world is lie and the evidence was all around me the entire time. 

When the truth is revealed, I have to be ready to fight.
