This kickoff book starts the series with a bang, creating a terrific town and unique cast of characters. The setting almost becomes a character, and supplies plenty of threads for future development. Jolie is a flawed and fascinating heroine, with plenty of good reasons to nose around the mysterious happenings in Ocean Alley.

Loved this first book in what I think will be a great series of Jolie fun. I have visited the Jersey shore dozens of times and the details of the town, the boardwalk and the small shops made me think fondly of my trips there. Great detail. Looking forward to seeing what trouble Jolie gets into in her next book.

Would have been more enjoyable without all the typos

I enjoyed this book, the characters are likable. Jolie comes to live with her aunt while trying to deal with her soon to be ex who has a gambling problem and seems to have taken money from everybody, including Jolie. She is trying to start her life over, things start to look up when she finds a job until she also finds a body. Not only is she trying to find answers but she has to deal with a low life who wants money that her husband borrowed. The mystery was good and I have to say that I figured it out a little sooner than Jolie, but it was fun waiting for her to find the answer. I will definitely continue on with this series, I love the interesting mix of characters. *I won a copy of this from the author and this is my honest opinion.

Too young of a read for me. But did not give it a low rating because it is well written and you will feel like your at the jersey shore.
