Appraisal for Murder (Book 1 of the Jolie Series)

By Elaine L. Orr

Crime & mystery | Paperback, eBook, Audiobook


Jolie Gentil (pronounced Zho-Lee Zhan-tee) is a real estate appraiser in New Jersey Beach town whose flexible schedule allows time for trouble. With a name that translates to "pretty nice," she's used to teasing, and her embezzler ex-husband taught her a lot about unscrupulous behavior. But stumbling across dead bodies in the middle of the work day? That's a new one. Jolie Gentil moves to Great Aunt Madge’s Jersey shore B&B, taking her cat Jazz, and joining Madge's pair of prune-eating dogs. She rekindles friendships, dodges a low-level wise guy, and tries to figure out her new life. She hasn't seen her high school classmates in ten years, and they weren't all buds. Why care if a couple of them are murder suspects? Because finding a dead body when you're appraising a house grabs your attention. Jolie balances fear of a smart-mouth wise guy with a belief that her friends are innocent. Her murder suspects include one accused 's ex-wife and beneficiaries of the dead woman's will. Jolie keeps searching, but will someone's plans leave her alive to find the truth?
