Elaine Orrabout this book: What would you do if you opened a wardrobe and tumbled out of the attic with a skeleton? After you get yourself patched up, you'd find out who the skeleton was and how it ended up with a bunch of mothballed clothes. At least that's what Jolie Gentil would do.
Her curiosity (a.k.a. stubbornness) take her from homes she's appraising to deserted storefronts, to burning buildings -- with time out to volunteer at the food pantry and frustrate Aunt Madge and her best bud, Scoobie.
Jolie sees a link to the skeleton's family's Prohibition era business and works with Scoobie and her friend Ramona to gather clues from old photo albums and ledgers. The present day murder of Richard's former girlfriend, Mary Doris, tells them they're on the right track. It seems the secret she kept for decades killed her.
In this second novel of the Jolie Gentil cozy mystery series, Jolie doggedly pursues clues from the Prohibition era to tie them to a modern murder. A great mix of humor and mystery.
