Jacobia â€śJakeâ€ť Tiptree took the dangerous plunge from Wall
Street power brokerâ€“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, Maineâ€™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 isnâ€™t what they had
in mind. And it only gets worse when Jake is called out one
stormy night to make a repairâ€“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 Jakeâ€™sâ€“nor of anyone else in Eastport.
But whatâ€™s he doing shot to death on Jakeâ€™s property?
Jakeâ€™s bewitching tenantsâ€“including an ex-cop, a con man,
and a mute teenage girlâ€“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
doesnâ€™t think itâ€™s a case of witchcraftâ€“but a
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
Jakeâ€™s houseâ€“and lifeâ€“crashing down. Now she and Ellie are
racing to find a missing girl who may be the key to it
all...or lead them to a killer holding the final nails to
