As the first book in the Jolie Gentil cozy mystery series, you learn how she ended up back in Ocean Alley (where she lived for one year in high school), and how she figures out what to do next. And then she finds a body...

Product Description
If your name translates to "pretty nice" in French, you've probably gotten used to teasing. It doesn't prepare you to find out that your soon-to-be-ex-husband has a gambling problem, raided your assets, and embezzled from his bank. 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 tells herself it's not a retreat, just a smart change. Jolie 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 suspect'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?
