As Jolie Gentil appraises a vacant house, she finds the skeleton of Richard
Tillotson hidden in an antique attic wardrobe. He vanished just after his sister
married his business partner in 1929. Jolie sees a link to the family's Prohibition
era business and works with friends Scoobie and Ramona to gather clues from
old photo albums and ledgers. The photo albums lead her to Mary Doris Milner,
Richard's long-ago girlfriend. She is certain who murdered him. But, there was
nothing to link her suspect to the murder then, and
he's long dead himself.
The present day murder of Mary Doris tells Jolie and Scoobie they are on the
right track. Did the secret she kept all these years finally kill her? Mary Doris'
death means Jolie won't stop until she finds her killer, whether that leads to a
culprit in Richard's decades-old murder or not.
Between running the food pantry at Christmas time and escaping a burning
building, Jolie and Scoobie hope to figure out who the modern killer is before
someone else gets hurt.

I loved the first book in this series, but this one is even better. Great suspense and
humor, and I love the 'in your face' heroine, Jolie!

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.
