Jersey Shore Friends & Murder
Jolie Gentil Cozy Mystery Series Book 2
It’s Thanksgiving weekend in Ocean Alley. Jolie Gentil attended her 10th high school reunion and agreed to appraise the vacant Tillotson-Fisher house.
The skeleton of Richard Tillotson, hidden in an antique attic wardrobe, is a big surprise. He vanished just after his sister married his business partner in 1929. Jolie sees a link to the Fisher family’s Prohibition era business and works with friends Scoobie and Ramona to gather clues from old photo albums and ledgers.
The present day murder of Richard’s former girlfriend, Mary Doris, tells them someone feels threatened by having Jolie dig into Richard’s former family business, the Bakery at the Shore. What else went on in that now-abandoned bakery? Did the secret Mary Doris kept all these years finally kill her? 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.
Amazon Review: 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.
