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. 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.More

A good who-done-it?
This book is compared to diane mott davidson and her culinary mysteries, there are definitly a lot of similarities. If you like her books, you will most certainly like this one.

Slow starter, but gradullay gets there.
I would consider one more book, this one was slow to start and hard to get into.
The narrator didn't put enough effort into the various characters.
There is a number in the series.
Sleeper, almost didn't listen to it.
