Reviews of First Four Jolie Gentil Mysteries by Elaine L. Orr reviewed on July 28, 2019

This is the first 4 books of a set of Gentil Mysteries. I read the first one and was hooked and couldn't wait to read the next ones. The mysteries are intriguing and keep you guessing. Jolie Gentil moves back to a small town and in with her Aunt, who runs a B&B, after she divorces her embezzling husband. She takes a job as a real estate appraiser for one of her Aunt's friends and promptly finds a body in the house. Mysteries that happen are something Jolie just can't leave alone and has to solve, not that the sheriff wants her involved. Her friends and town people are well thought out and each have their own quirks and personalities; you'll love Scoobie, he reminds me of a "free spirit" who would have made a great hippie. Each book came to it's own conclusion with no cliff hanger, thank you Ms. Orr, and the books do follow the same characters in each of the books, but with different mysteries to solve and more things for the characters to get into. These 4 books were a delightful read and I'd recommend them to anyone wanting a good mystery, great characters and something that will keep you guessing until the end. I read all four one after the other and can't wait to see what the characters get into next.
