Driving deep into the woods to her husband’s cottage with her best friend, Ellie White, in tow, Jake knows she has a challenging week ahead of her. Aside from saying goodbye to paved roads and indoor plumbing, Jake bet her husband that she could finish building the cottage porch in only a few days, a lofty goal for even the craftiest home renovator. But as Jake and Ellie set to work, they soon realize that they’re not alone. Someone is watching them, and that someone is out for blood.

Recently escaped from prison and having fled into the woods, Dewey Hooper recognizes Jake the instant he sees her. Her testimony got him sent away for murder years ago and here, in the remote wilderness, he can finally exact his revenge. Determined to make payback look like an accident, Dewey hatches a lethal scheme to ensure neither woman returns to Eastport alive.

But Jake and Ellie are tough as nails and not afraid to fend for themselves. With the exit roads flooded and a deranged convict stalking their every move, they’ll have to keep their wits above water to prevent the quaint little cottage from turning into the ultimate death trap.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alice Liu | 2/11/2014

    " I loved this 15th installment of Sarah Graves' Home Repair is Homicide series. Yes, there were certain repeated dramatic devices (ignored threats, misplaced cell phones, where did I put that gun?), but there are enough surprises with lots of action and several separate story lines converging. While there is less actual home repair as compared to some of the other books in this series, Sam appears more often as his loneliness takes him down interesting and dangerous roads. Even Victor returns, adding another level to the adventure. I finished off this book in one sitting, feeling very much like a vested member of the Tiptree family. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janette | 2/5/2014

    " wow, this has one disaster after another, it doesn't stop, and of course no one has a cell phone! And it all happens at once. I like this series, but sometimes having a bad guy after Jake or her family members gets a little tedious. I like it better if she just works on somebody else's disasters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kay | 1/31/2014

    " The first book I have read by Sarah Graves. I enjoyed it very much, and plan to read more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 1/20/2014

    " This entry in the Home Repair Is Homicide series is top-notch mystery entertainment at its best. One of the things I like about Sarah Graves' series is that the quality of her entries is consistent, as well as the fact that her characters and sense of place add depth to a plot that is already quite good. This entry is definitely one of her best and has the reader turning pages and reading as fast as possible to find out what is going to happen to Jake, Ellie, Wade, Sam, Bella, and Jacob. This is a very satisfying read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 1/19/2014

    " This series is still light, but definitely getting darker with the last few books. This one especially. There were a few loose ends that will probably be tied up in the next book. Not too thrilled by the "ghostly sightings" - just seems out of place in this series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bgrayyoung | 12/30/2013

    " I knew going in this was part of an ongoing series. Still, I felt very much at a disadvantage regarding the numerous main characters and their pasts. Usually the author gives you enough background (and she did give some) to make it possible to pick up in the middle of a series; but in this case it was not enough. In addition the plot was way too unbelievable....catastrophe after catastrophe after catastrophe. I doubt I will look for any of the previous titles in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan R | 12/30/2013

    " Series seems to get better with each book.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debbie | 12/23/2013

    " Sarah Graves continues to take this series more toward the paranormal, and I'm okay with that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 12/16/2013

    " First of these I've read. It was easy to jump in, even though it's number 15. I'll read more of this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rick Chaput | 11/26/2013

    " I thought this book was good. Held my interest through out. A fast read. Murder Mystery in woods in Maine. Very folksy "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann Babcock | 11/21/2013

    " Good mystery! Descriptions are great! Very interesting! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elaine | 9/10/2013

    " Very different than the cozies I've been reading lately, but I liked the characters, and it kept me reading right along. Might check out some other books of hers! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elaine | 7/30/2013

    " Another suspense filled adventure in Eastport Maine! Can't wait for more~ "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 LDuchess | 2/6/2013

    " A lot more violence than her previous books....but still good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie Angel | 1/8/2013

    " 3.5--a gripping read. She's doing terror really well now. I like all the strong characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lbaker | 9/11/2012

    " The "ghosty" slant to this series is off-putting which is too bad because the characters are good, and the repair tips are interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wolf | 8/14/2012

    " While I've really enjoyed this series, I had a bit of a hard time following this one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan | 7/4/2012

    " Just started reading and did not realize this was book 15 in a series. But wondering: why does her ex-husband have the same last name as her father? Ex is referred to as Dr. Victor Tiptree. Is this explained in an earlier book? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Donner | 6/25/2012

    " While this was a good story, I felt there was just too much happening to each of the characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Anne | 6/16/2012

    " I discovered this Maine author quite by accident. While the plot of heroine encounters bad guy was apparent right away, how it played out was not. I will be reading more of Sarah Graves books for sure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 5/27/2012

    " Good continuation of the series. There is a dead body - but this one is more about the characters themselves - who almost end up as dead bodies. "
