Jacobia Tiptree saved her sanity - and her son, Sam - the day she abandoned Wall Street for the seacoast village of Eastport, Maine. In her new home, a charmingly dilapidated fixer-upper, she looks forward to repairing old radiators and restoring antique shutters for years to come. But Jake's hopes of serenity are dashed when tiny Eastport erupts in a crime wave.
Hometown bad boy Kenny Mumford - old flame of Jake's best friend and fellow sleuth, Ellie White - is the first victim. When his corpse washes up on the beach at Prince's Cove, all evidence points to a drowning...except the bullet hole in his forehead. When bodies begin littering the Maine scenery, Jake and Ellie learn that the ante on Kenny's small-town antics has been upped.
Add a pair of unwelcome arrivals - Jake's ex-husband, and an unscrupulous New York ex-money mogul - and you've got a blueprint for more deadly danger than one old house can hold.
"[T]he cozy details of small-town life and home repair make for an enjoyable read." (Publishers Weekly)

Second in the series and looking forward more
Yes, great book, a lot of detail
I like this kind of book, not too heavy, good humour, enough of a mystery to keep you going.
