Jolie Gentil Cozy Mystery Series

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


In the eighth book of the Jolie Gentil series, she goes to buy a cup of coffee the morning after a storm knocks out power at her house in Ocean Alley. Instead of freshly brewed coffee, she finds Java Jolt unlocked and minus its owner. A bigger surprise is seeing proprietor Joe Regan a few minutes later, badly injured. A potential killer thinks Jolie has something Joe was hiding. The normal routine of appraising houses and volunteering at the Harvest for All food pantry is interrupted by an SUV that nearly smashes Jolie, a break-in at the home Jolie and Scoobie share, and a terrifying kidnapping. Jolie needs to learn who's telling the truth and how far the thugs will go to find what they want. Only solving the puzzle will keep Jolie safe, protect a vulnerable Iraqi vet, and make sure everyone stays alive. But if Jolie keeps searching, her budding romance with Scoobie may grind to a halt.

Customer Reviews

A must for cozy fans!

A relaxing, yet incredibly engrossing cozy mystery novel. I've read a few of Elaine Orr's cozy mysteries and, so far, I liked this one best. I love Jolie, she's just such a likeable character. I also liked the storyline and how Jolie unknowingly involves herself in the mystery and is soon trying to save her own skin. All and all, it's a great read and a must for cozy mystery fans.
