Jolie Gentil moves to Great Aunt Madge's Cozy Corner B&B at the Jersey shore, taking her
cat Jazz, and joining Madge's pair of prune-eating dogs. Jolie does not view this as a retreat
from her embezzling ex-husband, just a smart change. She had no idea her life was getting
even more complicated.

Jolie finds work as a real estate appraiser, but a low-life named Joe Pedone demands that she
repay some of her husband's gambling debts and she runs into Michael Riordan, her high
school crush. She's not sure which one is more trouble. Jolie appraises Michael’s mother's
house and finds his mother dead in bed. Soon the mundane work of appraising real estate and
dodging suggestions that she go to the ten-year high school reunion are mixed with calls from
reporters, scary suggestions from Pedone, and requests that she help the local busybody with
First Presbyterian's social services work. Jolie balances her fear of Pedone, conviction that
Michael is innocent, and sometimes uneasy friendship with her long-ago friend Scoobie.

by Susan Anderson)

...On another level Ms. Orr touches on the social issues of hunger as well as examples of the adage 'don't
judge a book by its cover' with candor. She brings these issues to light through colorful, endearing characters
as the story progresses. The end of the story left me wanting for more. I look forward to the next adventure in
Jolie Gentil's not so boring life. I highly recommend this book. Kathy M. on Amazon
