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.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon - P. Lund
The Jolie Gentil Cozy Mystery stories are a treat for the reader looking for something light but entertaining. The characters are real and the plotting is excellent. I look forward to more of Elaine's work!
Amazon - Annabella Prieto
This was a fun, entertaining, good book. I really enjoy these characters: Jolie, Scoobie, Aunt Madge, George. Even Jazz, Mr. Rogers and Miss Piggy. The development of the story was great...kept me wondering how it was all going to end until the last minute. It was a surprising ending which I, of course, would never give away. I also enjoyed the bit of romance that develops, in more ways than one...if you enjoyed the the first three books in the series, you will definitely enjoy this one.

    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.
