Appraising houses Jolie Gentil finds break-ins and she recognize one person that disturbs her very much. A tropical storm ends the SPEAK LIKE A PIRATE day and the next morning a man is found murder at the site. Clues point to Jolie and her curiosity wants to know who hates so much they are trying to frame her. The events take strange turns that keep you guessing. The ending surprise me. I am reading this series out of order and have no trouble understanding as there is enough of a back story to understand it.
