    Jolie Gentil moves to Great Aunt Madge's bed and breakfast at the Jersey shore, taking her cat, Jazz, and joining Madge's pair of prune-eating dogs. Jolie does not view this as a retreat, just a smart change. She had no idea her life was about to get even more complicated. Jolie is reestablishing friendships with Scoobie and Ramona, dodging low-level wise guy Pedone, and (oops!) finding a dead body.

    Jolie Gentil gets tapped for some appraisal work at 10th reunion of her Ocean Alley High School class. When appraising the vacant Tillotson-Fisher house, she finds the skeleton of Richard Tillotson hidden in an antique attic wardrobe. He vanished just after his sister married his business partner in 1929. Jolie sees a link to the Fisher family's Prohibition era business and works with friends Scoobie and Ramona to gather clues from old photo albums and ledgers. The photo albums lead her to Mary Doris Milner, Richard's girlfriend, who has fond memories of him and is certain of who murdered him. But, there was nothing to link her suspect to the murder then, and he's long dead himself.

    A fun historical treat!

    I enjoyed this story because it was a combo of a cozy mystery & also a bit of history. I like how things go back all the way to the 1920's, which make..Show More »

    Jolie never liked the idea of sitting on the plank above the dunk tank for the food pantry's fundraiser at the carnival. Even so, she never dreamed what Scoobie saw that day would leave him battling for his life. Scoobie's ex-con mother shows up and there's a murder to add to the mix. Soon Jolie is doing a lot more than appraising real estate, though even that is complicated by home burglars. Jolie reluctantly seeks help from her nemesis - reporter George Winters - and tries to stay a step ahead of a kidnapper and murderer so she can take charge of her world again.

    From Hurricane Sandy to B&B repairs to Aunt Madge's wedding in three weeks. If Jolie can handle that surely she can deal with a sobbing woman who shows up at midnight. When the next morning Jolie learns that Pooki's husband is missing and his partner is dead, it seems there may be a connection to some shady hurricane repairs at Ocean Alley's senior complex.

    Don't waste your time. Terrible narrator.

    The story line was so-so, but the narration was awful. The narrator tried to do voices, but over exaggerated each one until it was irritating instead ..Show More »

    It's fun to buy a house. Unless, there is something hidden behind the walls and someone wants it. Someone who is willing to kill for it. Jolie is pursued by a purse thief and a burglar, but the guy she's most worried about is the one who left an elderly auctioneer dead on her porch swing. In between appraising houses and planning a fund-raiser for the food pantry (can you say liquid string contest?), Jolie, Scoobie, and friends need to figure who left a cache of jewelry behind the walls in her house.

    good book for walking

    this was the first book I bought to start my walking program. glad I did!
