Though she never liked the idea of sitting on the plank above the dunk tank for the
food pantry's fundraiser at the carnival, Jolie never dreamed what Scoobie saw that
day would leave him battling for his life. Scoobie's ex-con mother shows up and
there's a murder to add to the mix.

Soon Jolie is doing more than appraising real estate. Even that is complicated by
home burglars. Jolie grudgingly seeks help from her nemesis--reporter George
Winters--and tries to stay a step ahead of a kidnapper and murderer so she can take
charge of her world again. Can she keep her friends safe, and will Scoobie recover
enough to plan another silly fundraiser?

(I) like these books. good plot and characters, easy to keep track of continuing
characters... Kristy on Amazon.

This is the third in the series of books that I've read by this author and I have
enjoyed them all. Plan to continue to read more. I enjoy the way she writes
about the interactions among the different characters.

Even though this is the third book in the series, it still has strong character
development complemented by a good plot in an interesting location.
