Publisher's 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. 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.

Slow starter, but gradullay gets there.

Would you try another book from Sarah Graves and/or Lindsay Ellison?

I would consider one more book, this one was slow to start and hard to get into.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator didn't put enough effort into the various characters.

Do you think The Dead Cat Bounce needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

There is a number in the series.

Any additional comments?

Sleeper, almost didn't listen to it.

Down East Maine at it's Best!

This is the first book in a series with each book a great stand alone. The author creates great storylines along with sidebars of humorous home repair perils. Makes me want to visit up north!
