A crime wave is sweeping the quiet island town of Eastport, Maine. After discovering the dead body of Kenny Mumford, the town's petty thief and ne'er-do-well, Jacobia "Jake" Tiptree and her best friend, Ellie White, set out to catch the killer. Meanwhile, Jake's attempts to start a new life after quitting her job on Wall Street and moving to Eastport with her teenage son, Sam, are thwarted as two creeps from her past show up: her philandering ex-husband, Victor, and Baxter Willoughby, a crooked stockbroker from New York whom Jake helped put in prison. Between repair jobs on the old house she's renovating and trying to keep Victor from moving in next door, Jake comes across two more bodies and evidence of drug dealing and smuggling. Graves (The Dead Cat Bounce) affectionately creates believable characters (with the exception of cardboard cutout Willoughby), who lend depth and warm humor to the story. While it's not hard to figure out who's behind the mayhem, and the resolution to the mystery fails to thrill, the cozy details of small-town life and home repair make for an enjoyable read.

Kenny Mumford's wide, sightless eyes gazed up and out of his shroud of wet, green rockweed, on the beach at Prince's Cove.

Jacobia "Jake" Tiptree and Ellie White discover the body of Eastport, Maine's major bad boy on the beach. It looks like a drowning until you see the bullet hole in the forehead. Ellie and Kenny grew up together and she feels obligated to find out what happened to him. Jake moved to Eastport from New York to restore an old home. She gave up her lucrative career in money management to live in a small downeast Maine town. Jake becomes concerned when a former money mogul that she helped send to jail shows up in town. Two more murders and two million dollars point to him as a main suspect.

This was an enjoyable read. Jake is trying so hard to preserve her home and restore it to its original condition. She gets involved with the investigation to help her friend Ellie. Jake's ex-husband comes to town and causes problems for pretty much everyone. I enjoyed meeting the characters and felt they were well presented. I did not figure out the murderer until close to the end. I would read more in the series.

Really enjoying the series. The characters are well defined, even the ones who are annoying. Using home repair as a backdrop is an unusual but interesting trip. Good plot. Looking forward to continuing the series.
