Behind the Walls Hits the Streets

Books have their own pace for reading and writing. I envisioned the sixth book in the Jolie Gentil cozy mystery series, Behind the Walls, appearing earlier in the fall. However, I like the book a lot better for the extra six weeks it took to write, so all's well that ends well.

Behind the Walls is one of two books that acknowledges the force that was Hurricane Sandy. As a storm that changed the face of the Jersey shore in many ways, I thought the series should deal with some of its aftermath. In Behind the Walls, Jolie and Scoobie are working on a storm-damaged bungalow she bought when they find something that has likely been hidden for decades.  And someone else wants it, and they're willing to kill to get it.

Even though Jolie and friends are tracking a killer, there is the trademark humor and a rowdy fundraiser for the food pantry Jolie chairs. As if trying to ferret out a murderer isn't enough, Jolie can't seem to get her cat Jazz to be happy without Aunt Madge's dogs. There may be room for another, albeit strange, kind of pet in Jolie's new house.

Behind the Walls is available in paperback, Kindle, and Nook, and will soon be available for itunes users.
