Rekindling Motives

Lifelong Dreams Publishing

As Jolie Gentil appraises a vacant house, she finds the skeleton
of Richard Tillotson hidden in an antique attic wardrobe. He vanished
just after his sister married his business partner in 1929. Jolie sees a
link to the family's Prohibition era business and works with friends
Scoobie and Ramona to gather clues from old photo albums and ledgers.
The photo albums lead her to Mary Doris Milner, Richard's long-ago
girlfriend. She is certain who murdered him.  But, there was nothing to
link her suspect to the murder then, and he's long dead himself.

present day murder of Mary Doris tells Jolie and Scoobie they are on
the right track. Did the secret she kept all these years finally kill
her? Mary Doris' death means Jolie won't stop until she finds her
killer, whether that leads to a culprit in Richard's decades-old murder
or not.

Between running the food pantry at Christmas time and
escaping a burning building, Jolie and Scoobie hope to figure out who
the modern killer is before someone else gets hurt. The trail may be
cold, but the humor is hot.
