Overview

Jolie Gentil and friends are putting the finishing touches on the Talk Like a Pirate Day fundraiser for the food pantry and trying to figure out who's breaking into some of the houses Jolie appraises. When she realizes a new face in town is leading high school kids into trouble in those houses, Jolie's mad and lets him know it. But Hayden offers to help her mind her own business, and a lot of people at the fundraiser hear her give him what for. A hurricane's on the way to disrupt Talk Like a Pirate Day, and when a corpse turn up under the pirate ship the next day, Jolie's looking like a suspect.

Soon she's getting less work. Who wants a murder suspect appraising their house? Scoobie's pirate limericks can't solve a crime, so Jolie and her sometimes buddy local reporter George Winters look for the murderer and try to figure out who's trying to frame Jolie. They need to stay ahead of whoever forces Jolie's car into a ditch and off the radar of the local police who tell Jolie -- for the hundredth time -- to butt out.

All this and Jolie has to deal with Aunt Madge's blossoming love life. And what about her own? For a cozy mystery with a dose of humor and a touch of romance, join Jolie and friends in Ocean Alley.

Though I like all the Jolie books, this one is my favorite. It's quite a challenge for the author of a series to develop the continuing characters, letting them grow while still keeping complete consistency with their earlier selves, and Elaine Orr does this magnificently.

I was looking forward to the next book in this series and the author Elaine Orr did not let me down. Kept me intrigued from front cover to back.

I really enjoy this series. It's got great characters, small-town charm, humor, and just a lovely feel. These are the perfect books to curl up with. If you love cozy mysteries, you'll love this series.
