Jolie and Scoobie High School Misadventures
Prequel to the Jolie Gentil Cozy Mystery Series
When Jolie Gentil’s parents leave her with Aunt Madge for her junior year so they can “work things out” in their marriage, she’s angry. She knows no one at Ocean Alley High School.
Some kids snub her, but she makes friends with irreverent Scoobie. He’s quirky and fun, but he’s skipped school and smoked pot in the past, so people avoid him.
Jolie learns how to shoot a squirt gun from under the boardwalk and tries not to flunk geometry. She also learns that the family for whom she babysits has a secret, one that puts Jolie in danger.
You’ve met Jolie and Scoobie as crime-solving adults. Check out their high school friendship. Same humor, different challenges. Plus, a couple of hints about why Jolie wants to get to the bottom of murders when she’s all grown up.
Amazon Review: The quirky characters will have you laughing at their antics as you follow them through their “misadventures”. I love that the author gave us this prequel, so that we can understand what makes Jolie, Scoobie, and Madge tick throughout the rest of the series.
