Jacobia â€śJakeâ€ť Tiptree traded her power-broker life for a
run-down dream house in peaceful Eastport, Maine. But the
do-it-yourself enthusiast is learning that no matter how
carefully you build your home, murder has a way of slipping
in through the cracksâ€¦
Itâ€™s a bright June afternoon and old-house-fixer-upper Jake
Tiptree is driving through downeast Maine on an unusual
errand. Sheâ€™s getting ready to interview a large, angry man
with a criminal history. Jim Diamond may or may not be
harassing his ex-wife with life-threatening letters, but
Jake promised her new housekeeper, Bella Diamond, sheâ€™d
look into the matter. An ex-con and a deadbeat, Jim Diamond
doesnâ€™t have a history of violenceâ€¦that is, not until Jake
arrives at his apartment and discovers that a killer has
been there first.
Suddenly Jake and her best friend, Ellie White, find
themselves at the center of a murder with too many suspects
and too few clues. And as if thatâ€™s not enough, Jake is now
saddled with the manic Bella, whose certainty that sheâ€™ll
be the next victim is fueling a supercompulsive neatnessâ€“
one that threatens to clean Jake and her long-suffering
husband, Wade, out of house and home.
Add to that a moose in her kitchen, a rebellious son with a
habit of dumping Miss Right for Miss Wrong, and a
troublesome ex of her own, and Jake is already at witâ€™s
end. Then she gets word that a horde of her dadâ€™s long-lost
relatives mean to descend on Eastport, intending to be put
up at her far-from-fixed-up fixer-upper.
When the killer does strike again, itâ€™s not where Jake
expectsâ€¦and the victim couldnâ€™t be more of a surprise. For
this is a case bigger than the usual angryâ€”ex-spouse
variety, and now that Jake and Ellie have gotten themselves
involved, theyâ€™ve each won a special place in a ruthless
murdererâ€™s master plan of greed, deception, and death. And
the prize? A pair of eternally private roomsâ€“six feet under!
