Latest pbk in the Home Repair is Homicide mystery series featuring Jacobia Tiptree and friend Ellie. More fun if you start at the beginning- The Dead Cat Bounce- and read them all!

The further adventures of Jacobia Tiptree, her son, and now her new husband in a small Maine town. A good mystery. Complex story.

This was the first book by this author that I had read. It's fun, typical series mystery, similar to Mary Daheim's Bed and Breakfast mysteries. The main 'snoop' named Jacobia is starting her life over in the small town of Eastport. I got the feeling that this wasn't the first book in the series. The author's schtick is house repairs. So all through the mystery are little hints for ways to make house repairs easier. This book makes for an easy weekend read.

Buying a beachfront fixer-upper to lease out to Eastport, Maine'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 isn't what they had in mind. And it only gets worse when Jake is called out one stormy night to make a repairâand 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 Jake'sânor of anyone else in Eastport. But what's he doing shot to death on Jake's property? Jake's bewitching tenantsâincluding an ex-cop, a con man, and a mute teenage girlâclaim 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 doesn't think it's a case of witchcraftâbut a kidnapping...or worse.

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 Jake's houseâand lifeâcrashing 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 their coffins.
