Jacobia Tiptree saved her sanity—and her son, Sam—the day she abandoned Wall Street for the seacoast village of Eastport, Maine. In her new home, a charmingly dilapidated fixer-upper, she looks forward to repairing old radiators and restoring antique shutters for years to come. But Jake’s hopes of serenity are dashed when tiny Eastport erupts in a crime wave. Hometown bad boy Kenny Mumford—old flame of Jake’s best friend and fellow sleuth, Ellie White—is the first victim. When his corpse washes up on the beach at Prince’s Cove, all evidence points to a drowning—except the bullet hole in his forehead. When bodies begin littering the Maine scenery, Jake and Ellie learn that the ante on Kenny’s small-town antics has been upped. Add a pair of unwelcome arrivals—Jake’s ex-husband, and an unscrupulous New York ex-money mogul—and you’ve got a blueprint for more deadly danger than one old house can hold.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A smartly written story, with lots of interesting detail about the area and restoration projects. But it never gets in the way of the mystery, which turns out to be both complex and simple, an admirable combination.”

    Contra Costa Times

  • “A pleasure to read. Jake Tiptree is an engaging, appealing character.”

    Portland Press Herald (Maine)

  • “[Graves] describes the beauty of the Eastport area with a pure eye for both its wonders and weaknesses. This is a well-written…novel with a plot that keeps you pulled in close.”

    Bangor Daily News 

  • “Graves affectionately creates believable characters…who lend depth and warm humor to the story…The cozy details of small-town life and home repair make for an enjoyable read.”

    Publishers Weekly

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Connie | 2/17/2014

    " This was read for our mystery bookgroup. Otherwise, I doubt I would have chosen to read this. Although I enjoyed reading the descriptions of life in Eastport, Maine and surrounding area, I did not find it a very compelling mystery. The convolutions in the final scenes left me cold. I also was annoyed by the ghost in her house dropping the silver spoon and by the ex-husband. Doubt seriously if I will read another one from this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen | 2/3/2014

    " I didn't realize this was quite as early in the series as this. We are dealing with the Ex, Ellie's very long ago boy friend (who is now dead), said boy friend's father, and the possibility of terrorists taking over the streets of Eastport. Oh, and leaky radiators, dripping sinks and the necessity of stripping, repairing, repainting and hanging 48 pairs of large window shutters.It is as much fun as any of them, the ghost is dropping things and Ellie is doing her energizer bunny routine. One should remember the Triple Witch is part of a term referring to the maturation of certain documents which occasionally occur all on one day, the triple witching day. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda Baker | 1/26/2014

    " I am really enjoying this series. After many years vacationing in Maine and getting to know people there I know that the adage "still waters run deep" definitely applies to Mainers. I think Sarah Graves really captures that attribute. You never know what people are up to and all about by just looking at the surface. The books are well plotted and enjoyable. The only problem I have is the home repair part. I think that is what we have the handy man for. I am definitely all thumbs and reading about it isn't going to help! That is just me though. A very good series that I am looking forward to reading through. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eero | 1/25/2014

    " Character get bit more interesting, even that story is still bit too typical for my tastes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Claire | 1/16/2014

    " Nice sense of place. Interesting characters. Too many "I should have known comments" interrupting the flow. These also irritate me as did too much of the ex-husband. Actually found him more interesting than the old steady lover. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nan | 1/15/2014

    " Perfect for light, summer reading. And you might learn something about fixing up old houses, while you're at it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shirley | 1/14/2014

    " Enjoyed this one more than the previous one by Sarah Graves. Her humor is the added plus to the plot. A bit too much home repair stuff and scenery description for my taste, but still a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 K. East | 1/27/2013

    " This is the second book in a series with a collection of characters that I already care about and enjoy. I've read four of these now and this was not the best in terms of mystery plot development, but the lives of the characters are why I am hooked. The mystery is just a vehicle for the back story. "

    " These mystery series are a quick easy read. Interesting because of the setting. Simple characters and a little predictable but if you like mysteries in a series they are worth the read. "

    " Not sure about this series, but since I got this second one out of the library, I'll give it another try to see if I want to continue with it. Finished and not one of my favorite series. May be a back up in case I can't find anything else to read at any given moment. "
