Publisher's Summary

Christmas is just weeks away, but what Jacobia Jake Tiptree discovers at Faye Anne Carmody's house is far from festive: a dazed Faye Anne covered with blood. Her no-good husband, Merle--Eastport's butcher and least-liked citizen--is nowhere in sight. Nowhere, that is, until Jake finds his body--wrapped in his own butcher paper. It looks like an open-and-shut case, but Jake isn't convinced. Then another resident turns up dead, and Jake knows the trail doesn't begin--or end--with Merle. Jake had planned to spend the winter rehabilitating her old house, but now she'll have to work on nailing a killer before her beloved town gets even smaller.

Entertaining few hours

This was an okay listen but not as good as some of the others in the series. There were a lot of facts presented at the end of the "whodunit" that the listener couldn't possibly have known. This book felt like one the author sort of three on for a seasonal (Xmas) read. Still, you gotta love the characters and the narrator does a good job - except for consistently mispronouncing the word "criminy," which drives me nuts. All in all, it's a nice, light read/listen for when you want to escape the drama of your own life. If you like the series, you have to listen to keep track of what's going on in the lives of our friends in Eastport.

Just another winter in Eastport

This is another addition to a great series. Jacobia is at her best in this latest installment. The subject matter was dark and complex. The book was very good with a fast pace that kept me turning the pages.
