'Vague Images,' Seventh in the Jolie Gentil Cozy Mystery Series, is Now in eBook and Paperback
by BWW News Desk - Jul 6, 2014

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. Reviewers say about the Jolie Gentil series: "[Vague Images] is the most exciting in this wonderful series that I have been reading for the past few years. I look forward to every addition. Not sure how Jolie always end up in the middle of all these murders, but it's fun to see how she muddles her way through...Just loved it!" -Lynn on Amazon "Appraisal for Murder is a snappy read, with all the ingredients of a first class mystery including a sleuth who will engage your heart and mind. ...If you seek a new mystery series with a protagonist who will win your heart, a story that will keep you turning pages, Appraisal for Murder is for you." -Susan Russo Anderson for LL Book Reviews "There are always laughs, loveable characters and, of course, an excellent mystery." -(A. Brantley on Amazon) "I've just finished reading the 3rd in the Jolie Gentil cozy mystery series, and felt as if I'd reconnected with old friends." -(Cousin Reader on Barnes and Noble) Lifelong Dreams Publishing is a small firm that has been in business since 1995. It largely publishes the work of its owner, Elaine L. Orr. Information on other publications can be found at Biographical information on Ms Orr is as follows: Elaine L.
