Publisher's Summary

When Jolie Gentil goes to buy a cup of coffee the morning after a storm knocks out power at her house in Ocean Alley, she finds Java Jolt unlocked and minus its owner. A bigger surprise is seeing proprietor Joe Regan a few minutes later, badly injured.

It seems a potential killer thinks Jolie has something Joe was hiding. The normal routine of appraising houses and volunteering at the Harvest for All food pantry is interrupted by an SUV that nearly smashes Jolie, a break-in at the home Jolie and Scoobie share, and a terrifying kidnapping. Jolie needs to figure out who's telling the truth and how far the thugs will go to find what they want. Only solving the puzzle will keep Jolie safe, protect a vulnerable Iraqi vet, and make sure everyone stays alive. But if Jolie keeps searching, her budding romance with Scoobie may grind to a halt.

Good story!

cozy-mystery, amateur-sleuth, New Jersey, small-business, small-town, family, friendship

Jolie is a house appraiser in a small town in New Jersey where everyone knows everyone else and their business. When the storm knocks her power out, she heads to the local coffee shop but things get odd and the shop owner gets shot in an alley. Jolie really goes into sleuth mode after her car is deliberately totaled just as she was getting out with a friend. Turns out that the shop owner has an interesting past, the man who could possibly help her the most is a recent war vet with some post concussion problems, and her loved ones fear for her safety. Good story!
The book is narrated by Dan Gallagher.
