Christmas is just weeks away, but what Jacobia "Jake" Tiptree discovers at Faye Anne Carmody's house is far from festive: a dazed Faye Anne covered with blood. Her no-good husband, Merle--Eastport's butcher and least-liked citizen--is nowhere in sight. Nowhere, that is, until Jake finds his body--wrapped in his own butcher paper. It looks like an open-and-shut case, but Jake isn't convinced. Then another resident turns up dead, and Jake knows the trail doesn't begin--or end--with Merle. Jake had planned to spend the winter rehabilitating her old house, but now she'll have to work on nailing a killer before her beloved town gets even smaller.

From the Back Cover:

“Graves’s characters are very human creations, warts and all, with Jake in particular making fine company.”
— Publishers Weekly


Praise for the Home Repair Is Homicide Mysteries of Sarah Graves:

Dead Cat Bounce

“No cozy this, it’s amusing, cynical, yet warm, populated with nice and nasty characters and some dirty secrets.... All the ingredients fit the dish of delicious crime chowder.... I am already drooling for [Jake’s] return.”
Booknews from The Poisoned Pen

“In her polished debut, Graves blends charming, evocative digressions about life in Eastport with an intricate plot, well-drawn characters and a wry sense of humor.”
Publishers Weekly

Triple Witch

“Graves affectionately creates believable characters ... who lend depth and warm humor to the story.... The cozy details of small-town life and home repair make for an enjoyable read.”
Publishers Weekly

“[Triple Witch] is a smartly written story, with lots of interesting detail about the area and restoration projects. But it never gets in the way of the mystery, which turns out to be both complex and simple, an admirable combination.”
Contra Costa Times

Wicked Fix

“Graves skillfully ... draws out the suspense. Good entertainment.”
Publishers Weekly

“Ms. Graves has created a bright and personable new detective who has been welcomed into the Eastport community with warmth and affection.”
The Dallas Morning News

From the Inside Flap:

own (Eastport) and its warmly wondrous citizens continue to enchant!”
Booknews from The Poisoned Pen

When ex—Wall Streeter Jacobia “Jake” Tiptree bought a charming 1823 fixer-upper in tiny Eastport, Maine, she figured she’d also bought herself a tranquil, stress-free life. But Jake soon learned that appearances can be deceiving, and that even small towns have their share of dark secrets — including murder.

Wreck The Halls

People hardly ever lock their doors in Eastport. So when Jake and her best pal, Ellie, arrive at Faye Anne Carmody’s kitchen door, they knock and walk right in. But though Christmas is just two weeks away, what they find is far from festive: a dazed Faye Anne covered with blood, and her no-good husband — the town butcher, Merle — nowhere in sight. Nowhere, that is, until Jake discovers his body — tidily wrapped in his own butcher paper....
