The Twain Does Meet is a between-the-numbers book in the Jolie Gentil cozy mystery series. (Between Books 10 and 11.) In fact, it's called a Jolie and Scoobie novella, and while there are important things to discover, it's not a true mystery. The author promised readers the story of the twins' birth, but she didn't want to frame it around a corpse. So join the Ocean Alley crew for some poignant moments, funny scenes, and a good story.
