Springfield, IL, July 04, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Lifelong Dreams Publishing is pleased to announce a new release in the Jolie Gentil cozy mystery series. Set at the Jersey shore, Jolie (whose name means pretty nice in French) has a strong-willed aunt, great boss, and close group of friends. And all of them think she should mind her own business.
In Vague Images
, Jolie manages to avoid hitting a deer only to end up in the Ocean Alley Emergency Room with a badly sprained ankle. Even worse, she soon finds a dead woman in the hospital restroom. As the chief budget cutter at the hospital, Tanya Weiss was unpopular, especially in the Radiology Department, where Jolie's best bud, Scoobie, works.
In between appraising houses and feeding her pet skunk, Jolie’s on the lookout for a runaway teenager and whoever planted the dead woman in her path. Thanks to Scoobie, she’s also planning another crazy fundraiser for the food pantry—this one a Corn Hole Contest. It’s sort of a bean bag game for grown-ups, and the polite term is Corn Toss Contest. So of course, Scoobie prepares to name winners in the Harvest for All Corn Hole Contest.
Just when Jolie’s ready to leave the murder investigation to the police, she gets a surprise—and it’s not a good one. Will her need to know see her hurt—or worse?
Find Vague Images at all online retailers in ebook or paperback.
