Jolie Gentil and friends are putting the
finishing touches on the Talk Like a Pirate Day fundraiser for the food pantry
and trying to figure out who's breaking into some of the houses Jolie
appraises. When she realizes a new face in town is leading high school kids
into trouble in those houses, she's mad and lets him know it. But Hayden offers
to help her mind her own business, and a lot of people at the fundraiser hear
her give him what for. A hurricane's on the way to disrupt the fundraiser, and
when a corpse turns up under the pirate ship the next day, someone wants to be
sure Jolie looks like a suspect.



When her car gets run into a ditch, Jolie knows
someone is seriously mad at her. Soon she's getting less work. Who wants a
murder suspect appraising their house? Scoobie's pirate limericks can't solve a
crime, so Jolie and her sometimes buddy local reporter George Winters look for
the murderer and try to figure out who's trying to frame Jolie. They need to
stay ahead of whoever's mad at her and off the radar of the local police who
tell Jolie -- for the hundredth time -- to butt out. For a cozy mystery with a
dose of humor and a touch of romance, join Jolie and friends in Ocean Alley.
