Any Port in a Storm
Fourth in the Jolie Gentil series
Jolie Gentil and friends put finishing touches on the Talk Like a Pirate Day
fundraiser for the food pantry and try to figure out who's breaking into houses
Jolie appraises. When she finds a new face in town is leading high school kids
into trouble in those houses, Jolie's mad and lets him know it. But Hayden offers
to help her mind her own business. A lot of people at the fundraiser hear her give
him what for. A hurricane's on the way to disrupt Talk Like a Pirate Day. When a
corpse turn up under the pirate ship the next day, Jolie's looking like a suspect.

Soon she's getting less work. Who wants a murder suspect doing a real estate
appraisal?  Scoobie's pirate limericks can't solve a crime, so Jolie and her
sometimes-buddy reporter George Winters look for the murderer and try to
figure out who wants to frame Jolie. They need to stay ahead of whoever's mad at
her and off the radar of the local police who tell Jolie to butt out. All this and Aunt
Madge's blossoming love life. And what about her own?

Every new book in the Jolie Gentil series is better than the last. "Any Port in a Storm"
kept me puzzling until the last few pages and made me laugh so hard my sides hurt.

This author has created one of the best story series. You got your usual murder, suspects,
a handsome protector, escaping possible death brought on by a deranged woman, the
ah-ha moment when you realize who the murder is, and finally solving the case. A.

Though I like all the Jolie books, this one is my favorite. It's quite a challenge for the author
of a series to develop the continuing characters, letting them grow while still keeping
complete consistency with their earlier selves, and Elaine Orr does this magnificently.

This was a fun, entertaining, good book. I really enjoy these characters: Jolie, Scoobie,
Aunt Madge, George. Even Jazz, Mr. Rogers and Miss Piggy. The development of the
story was great...kept me wondering how it was all going to end until the last minute.
