Jacobia “Jake” Tiptree’s leisurely summer dreams involve rebuilding the front porch of her Maine fixer-upper and shingling the leaky tool shed out back. That’s why she’s hired the avenging angel of household hygiene, Bella Diamond, to keep her house—and her teenage son Sam—in tip-top shape. But when Bella confides in Jake that she’s been receiving death threats, Jake has two choices: find out who is frightening the hapless housekeeper—or risk losing her. With a marauding moose loose in town, a troublesome love triangle occupying Sam, and her estranged relatives about to descend for the Fourth of July—and the upstairs bedroom still unpainted—Jake’s summer is sure to be anything but peaceful. No matter how carefully you remodel your life, murder can take up residence anywhere.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Sharp, clear characterizations and an intricate, precisely fitted plot make this latest Home Repair Is Homicide mystery a pleasure from first page to last.” Romantic Times Bookclub
“Entertaining…a  nicely drawn cast of characters, both human and animal, plus humor built around domestic bliss and angst, personal foibles, and outrageous situations all make for plenty of cozy fun.” Publishers Weekly
“Hours of cozy entertainment.” Kirkus Reviews
“[Filled with] strong and believable characters…Plenty of fun.” Contra Cost Times
“Graves provides an entertaining read sprinkled with practical tips. A recipe for success—even if it makes you want to start one of your long-overdue home-repair projects!” Wichita Falls Times-Record News
“Mixing slaughter with screwdrivers, renovator-author Sarah Graves wields the pen and paintbrush behind the Home Repair Is Homicide series.” Miami Herald
“Anyone who can mix slaughter and screwdrivers is a genius. Plus, anyone who has bought a home that needs even a new toilet seat is probably consumed with murderous thoughts (against the previous owner, the mortgage company, the lousy inspector, the spouse).” Boston Herald
“Home repair is Graves’ gimmick, and she uses it very successfully. But it is her light, humorous tone and well-chosen cast of characters that grow and evolve from novel to novel, her obvious love for coastal Maine and its inhabitants, and her ability to marry all of those ingredients to serviceable plots that make this a series whose popularity will continue to grow.” Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine
“If there’s more mayhem way down east, Sarah Graves must be back…The entertaining Tool & Die will keep most mystery readers guessing until nearly the end. Graves ties up things pretty neatly, but there’s still plenty to explore in the lives of her characters in her next novel.” Bangor Daily News
“Narrator Lindsay Ellison deals efficiently with ex-cons, ex-husbands, ex-girlfriends, and a housekeeper suffering from CCD—compulsive cleaning disorder—brought on by stress. Ellison switches from standard speech to a down-east accent without slipping into caricature. She’s especially winning as Jake copes with exploding radiators, long-lost relatives, and moose puke in her kitchen.” AudioFile
