This book is about two female friends who discover a secret door in a mansion being refurbished by their Historical Society. Old Harlequin House is Eastport, Maine's most notorious landmark, once a hideout, hospital and makeshift morgue for gansters and their molls. One of the bodies is a skelton dressed in 1920's flapper chic but the other is a local real-estate mogul with a chilling message pinned to his pocket: "Guilty". The two amateur sleuths must find a killer who's building an airtight case against one of their husbands.
A fun, well-written adventure.

I am enjoying this series of books. Jacobia and her friend Ellie are wonderful characters - strong women. The "cast of characters" is interesting. I like the way Graves incorporates murder and mayhem into home repair, Wall Street, and New England life. In this one Ellie's husband, George, is accused of murdering a local real estate mogul. But 2 bodies are discovered: his and one from the roaring twenties. Parallels between the murders are discovered. Can they solve the murder and save George? And, in doing so, discover what happened back all those years ago? Of course they can!!!

"Working around the house can definately be murder. The HOME REPAIR IS HOMICIDE series is a much more pleasant way to kill time." -- Bangor Daily News
