When the Carny Comes to Town (Book 3 of the Jolie Series)

By Elaine L. Orr

Crime & mystery | Paperback, eBook, Audiobook


The Jersey shore can be an interesting place, especially the people in Ocean Alley. 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 a lot more than appraising real estate, though 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?

She conducts presentations on electronic publishing and other writing-related topics. Nonfiction includes "Words to Write By: Getting Your Thoughts on Paper." In writing "When the Carny Comes" to Town, Elaine's personal experiences at county and state fairs in the U.S. were constantly in her head. The cover has a photo from the Iowa State Fair (provided by the fair), and the bench was just outside the fair's Agricultural Building in 2015 (photo by Elaine). When Jolie sits on a bench when she visits a carnival, think of this one.
