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. Not much happens in her tiny Maine town, but that’s about to change. 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“When Ellie White, longtime resident of Eastport, Maine, confesses to murdering a local billionaire with an ice pick, she’s promptly thrown in jail, and Jacobia Tiptree is promptly suspicious. Determined to prove her friend’s innocence, Jacobia (Jake) begins making her own inquiries and soon finds herself the object of threats and attacks. In portraying Jake, narrator Lindsay Ellison captures the sardonic tone of a strong, independent woman who is both amused and irritated by human behavior (including her own). Her voicing of Jake’s teenage son is realistic, and her portrayal of Ellie’s bossy elderly mother is at times hilarious. Pauses between chapters are a little long, but, overall, the leisurely narration suits the pace of life described in the community of Moose Island.” AudioFile
“In her polished debut, Graves blends charming, evocative digressions about life in Eastport with an intricate plot, well-drawn characters and a wry sense of humor.” Publishers Weekly
“Jacobia has a witty and ironic voice, and the book resonates with good humor, quirky characters, and a keen sense of place.” Down East magazine
“Think Diane Mott Davidson with a tool belt instead of recipes.” Denver Post
