As a librarian, I'll recommend this series to readers who want a good story without too
much gore or sex, but don't necessarily want Christian fiction either. The Ocean Alley
Adventures have the right mix of humor, mystery and just a light touch of romance. Carolyn

Engaging Mysteries Minus the "Yuck" Factor. I may be a wimp who doesn't like my
reading all mucked up with gore and guts, but I also like characters who are more grown
up and engaged with real life than, say, the Bobbsey twins. Maybe Ms. Orr had me in mind
when she designed these cozy mysteries. I loved all five of them. C. Nisaragi, Amazon,
