It began with the mysterious disappearance of Harriet Hollingsworth—Eastport, Maine’s snoopiest resident. Everyone is convinced the old busybody bolted out of town to escape her creditor—everyone except Jake and her best friend, Ellie, who suspect otherwise. But they’ll need to come up with proof more sinister than a pair of abandoned binoculars. Just as Jake starts poking around for clues, things take a troubling turn for the worse. A suspicious accident nearly kills her teenage son, Sam, and her husband, Wade, just misses getting his head blown off. Jake is prepared to attribute these incidents to a spate of bad luck—until another accident leaves a visitor to Eastport unmistakably dead. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “A cute and salty mystery on the Maine coast is voiced by Lindsay Ellison in some authentic down-east accents. The story, reminiscent of an episode of Murder, She Wrote, is chock-full of quirky, crusty characters with their own opaque drives and needs. Reader Ellison soldiers on…[with] strong character choices, decisive delivery, and an air of knowing. For listeners who love to be carried away to an imaginary Maine village and its imaginary intrigues, this title will provide an almost tangible tart and briny flavor.”

  • “A winning addition…A sleuth as tough as the mails she drives into the walls of her 1823 Federal home enhances a clever plot, which comes to an unexpected and explosive conclusion. Many will relish the vividly described down-east setting, but for anyone who’s ever enjoyed making a home repair, it’s the accurate details of the restoration of Jake’s old house that will appeal the most.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Charming.”

    " A home repair nut that I can relate to, jacobia is a seasoned character playing at small-town sleuth. The harbor-town setting and iconic characters keep this hard- broiled mystery afloat. I enjoy the pace but find some of the plot hard to follow. "

    " One of the weaker Jake Tiptree novels, but it gives a real flavor of Maine, clearly written by someone who loves Eastport. The characters are fun, and the plot, although weak, was enjoyable. I can empathize as Jake fixes one repair only to find another problem! "
