Another incredible addition to the Jolie Gentil cozy mystery series. A story packed with drama, busybodies, complex characters and an officer of the law who may end up having a coronary because of Jolie’s antics.

The characters in this one can be quite irritating. Though I found Madge has calmed her ‘tantrum’ ways in this one. I love Jolie and George; though I really wish they’d stop acting like 14 year olds and get together already. They’re absolutely hilarious and I’m gutted Scoobie wasn’t in

Hate At Its Worse

Appraising houses Jolie Gentil finds break-ins and she recognize one person that disturbs her very much. A tropical storm ends the SPEAK LIKE A PIRATE day and the next morning a man is found murder at the site. Clues point to Jolie and her curiosity wants to know who hates so much they are trying to frame her. The events take strange turns that keep you guessing. The ending surprise me. I am reading this series out of order and have no trouble understanding as there is enough of

I was very impressed with the characters and the writing in this book. I haven't read the earlier books but I will. Jolie's career (house appraiser) and volunteer work (in a food pantry) bring her in contact with interesting characters and situations. Her aunt, George, Scoobie, and the two homeless men, Max and Josh, are great regular members of the cast. Orr's writing style flows very well and dialogue is also a strong point.

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.

"As the top left corner [of the pirate ship shaped plywood] came toward me, I steadied it and walked a couple steps back. "Yeeee!" I screamed and sat down in the mud, hands splayed at my side. It was a horrible place to sit, as I could stare into xxx's dead eyes."

This is the fourth book in the Jolie Gentil series. Someone is breaking into vacant, for-sale houses and Jolie is trying to figure out what is going on while getting ready for the upcoming fundraising event she is in charge of organizin

I am really have fun with the Jolie Gentil series. The mysteries are intriguing but what I love most is the character interaction.

It soon looks as if Jolie is being frame for the murder so of course she sets out to find who really killed him. Her friends are split on helping her or pushing to leave it in the hands of the police. On
