Jacobia “Jake” Tiptree took the
dangerous plunge from Wall Street power broker to homeowner. Now the do-it-yourself
enthusiast is about to discover that her own dream house is built on a
foundation of murder.
Buying a beachfront fixer-upper to
lease out to Eastport, Maine’s, burgeoning tourist crowd seems like a good idea
to Jake Tiptree and her best friend, Ellie White. But working double-time as
landladies to a coven of wannabe witches is not what they had in mind. And it
only gets worse when Jake is called out one stormy night to make a repair—and
stumbles on a dead body in the utility shed.
A small-time thief and street
preacher with a particularly violent message, the deceased was no favorite of
Jake’s nor of anyone else in Eastport. But what’s he doing shot to death on
Jake’s property? Jake’s bewitching tenants—including an ex-cop, a con man, and
a mute teenage girl—claim to have been too busy conjuring spells to have heard
or seen a thing. Then a member of the coven disappears without a trace, and
Jake doesn’t think it’s a case of witchcraft but a kidnapping—or worse.
Scandal, secrets, and a mysterious
box buried deep in the foundation of her own home are just the beginning of a
mystery that threatens to bring Jake’s house—and life—crashing down. Now she
and Ellie are racing to find a missing girl who may either be the key to it all—or
lead them to a killer holding the final nails to their coffins. Download and start listening now!
