When Jacobia “Jake” Tiptree and her friend, Ellie White, agree to refurbish Eastport’s most disreputable old dwelling, Harlequin House, pulling up the floorboards reveals something far more sinister than dry rot. A hidden trapdoor unearths the skeleton of a notorious 1920s flapper with a fresh corpse sitting neatly beside her. With a good old-fashioned Maine murder on their hands, Jake and Ellie are hot on the trail of the murderer—but this time more than their reputations may be on the line.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Like the old Victorian homes she describes…Graves’ stories seem to grow better with the passing of time…Readers who enjoy solving mysteries and fixing up older homes will appreciate Jake’s do-it-yourself expertise in both areas.” Booklist
“An enjoyable read for those who like their mysteries well-built.” Bangor Daily News
“Offers all the pleasures of the ‘cozy’ subgenre…[with] its feisty amateur sleuth…[and] quirky assortment of friends and family…The plot is leavened with home repair passages full of detail and a nice dose of attitude.” New England Today
“Graves make rehabbing shutters and other chores suspenseful. The novels are as well-crafted as the household projects are carried out.” Boston Sunday Globe
Mallets Aforethought does not disappoint…Do expect at least one very useful tip on home repair…to go with the careful and sensitive development of characters, which I have learned to anticipate with pleasure. Not to mention that rich and well-developed plot.” Washington Times
“[An] innovative cozy series…Readers will relish the author’s evocative descriptions of small-town Maine, strong characters whose relationships evolve, sense of humor, and, of course, helpful home-repair hints.” Publishers Weekly
