NOW PERMANENTLY 99 CENTS!
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 would get even more complicated. Finding a woman dead in
her bed when you appraise her house will do that.
Jolie balances adjusting to her new life with threats from a
low-life her ex-husband owes money to, interest in an infuriating
former classmate, and rekindling her friendship with Scoobie, a
troubled high school friend who writes great poetry. What could
possibly be hard?

(Review by Susan Anderson)
On another level Ms. Orr touches on the social issues of hunger as
well as examples of the adage 'don'tjudge 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.
