Overview

From Hurricane Sandy to Cozy Corner B&B repairs to Aunt Madge's wedding in three weeks. If Jolie can handle that surely she can deal with a sobbing woman who shows up at midnight playing a scary message on a cell phone. Pooki is frantic about her husband's whereabouts and more than a little 'ditzy,' according to Jolie's best friend, Scoobie. After taking Pooki to the police station the next morning, Jolie figures she is problem-free. Not really.

Jolie's life soon involve much more than appraising real estate and running the food pantry.

A shady deal for storm repairs at the Ocean Alley Senior Complex seems to be at the root of Steve Oliver's hit-and-run death and missing business partner (Pooki's husband, Eric). When Eric ends up dead at the B&B, Jolie is digging for clues in between burning muffins and appraising houses. But when she doesn't share all that she learns with her sometimes-boyfriend, reporter George Winters, he's grouchy.

Jolie is convinced she needs to find the murderer (or is it murderers?) and expose fraudulent repair bids. Not everyone shares her views--not the police, her friend Scoobie, and certainly not the murderer.

For a mix of mystery and humor and a bunch of good friends, check out "Trouble on the Doorstep."

I think this may be the best in the Jolie series yet. I enjoyed the new trouble Jolie gets herself into! The mentions of the damage to the Jersey towns from Sandy were respectfully made. Good read!

amateur-sleuth, cozy-mystery, women-sleuths, murder-investigation, animals Lots of interesting characters with rather interesting names, and that's just the pets! Well plotted with plenty of twists and red herrings. This is the first I've read in this series, but it won't be the last!
