Goodreads - Susan Anderson
In this snappy read told in first-person point of view by the protagonist, Jolie Gentil ("It's pronounced Zho-Lee Zhan-tee,") returns to Ocean Alley and the Jersey Shore. Jolie, of course, is the protagonist. Aunt Madge and Scoobie return as do their pets, plenty of minor characters, and the stores, restaurants, and houses of Ocean Alley, the Atlantic Ocean and the boardwalk....Ms. Orr's mind is inventive. She knows how to surprise the reader whose interest never wanes. The pace is facile, somet

    The second Jolie Gentil book builds nicely on the atmosphere and characters created in the first book, but it can be enjoyed as a stand-alone too. The nice development of the time frame of Prohibition adds dimension to the current-day story.

    GREAT READ! Five Stars!

    I loved this next book in the Jolie series. It was fun to see what trouble Jolie and her friends could get themselves into (and then out of)! The author does a great job of giving each character a unique personality. Makes you feel like you know them.
    Looking forward to reading more books by Elaine Orr.
