Summary

Summary

Since she bought her rambling fixer-upper of a house, Jacobia Tiptree has gotten used to finding things broken. But her latest problem isn't so easily repaired. Along with the rotting floor joists and sagging support beams, there's the little matter of the dead man in Jake's storeroom, an ice pick planted firmly in his cranium. Not much happens in her tiny Maine town, but that's about to change. Jake's unknown guest turns out to be local boy turned billionaire Threnody McIlwaine. When Jake's best friend, quiet and dependable Ellie White, confesses to the murder, cops and journalists swarm into the snowbound Eastport. Jake smells a cover-up and begins poking into past history between McIlwaine and Ellie's family. But someone doesn't like nosy neighbors-and Jake's rustic refuge may become her final resting place.


Author Notes

Sarah Graves lives with her husband in Eastport, Maine, in the 1823 Federal-style house that helped inspire her books.

(Publisher Provided) Sarah Graves has been a writer (and a reader!) all her life. She sent her first story to McCall's magazine when she was seven or so. It was about a squirrel lost in the woods. The editors sent a form rejection letter, possibly because it was not very realistic for a squirrel to be lost in the woods. But this began her literary career of getting creatures (especially human creatures) into peril, and letting them figure out how to get themselves out again. She is best known for her Home repair is Homicide Series. Her titles include: Knockdown, Crawlspace, A Face in the Window, and A Bat in the Belfry.
