Jolie did not want to sit above the dunk tank at the carnival's food pantry fundraiser. She never dreamed what Scoobie saw that day would nearly kill him. His ex-con mother shows up and there's murder to add to the mix. Soon Jolie is doing more than appraising real estate, and even that is complicated by home burglars. She asks reporter George Winters for help, so you know she's desperate.
Though she never liked the idea of sitting on the plank above the dunk tank for the food pantry's fundraiser at the carnival, Jolie never dreamed what Scoobie saw that day would leave him battling for his life. Scoobie's ex-con mother shows up and there's a murder to add to the mix. Soon Jolie is doing a lot more than appraising real estate, though even that is complicated by home burglars. Jolie grudgingly seeks help from her nemesis--reporter George Winters--and tries to stay a step ahead of a kidnapper and murderer so she can take charge of her world again.
The police wish she'd butt out and Aunt Madge is furious that Jolie insists on talking to a couple shady characters on her own. Soon even the guests at Aunt Madge's Cozy Corner B&B are in the way. Can Jolie keep her friends safe, and will Scoobie recover enough to say what happened to him and plan another silly fundraiser?

Loved this 3rd book in the Jolie series. It was a fun read. The characters really have developed such personalities. I can't wait to see what trouble Jolie and her friends get into in the next book!
