Mallets Aforethought | [Sarah Graves]

Mallets Aforethought

When DIY enthusiast Jacobia Jake Tiptree and her friend, Ellie White, agree to refurbish Eastport's most disreputable old dwelling, Harlequin House, pulling up the floorboards reveals something far more sinister than dry rot. A hidden trapdoor unearths the skeleton of a notorious 1920s flapper with a fresh corpse sitting neatly beside her. With a good old-fashioned Maine murder on their hands, Jake and Ellie are hot on the trail of the murderer - but this time more than their reputations may be on the line.

    "Good"
    What did you love best about Mallets Aforethought?

    I was slightly let down but I think it's because I prefer it when the main characters aren't in the hot seat, so to speak. A good book but not her best in my opinion.

    "EXCELLENT STORY, WELL WRITTEN BOOK. READ IT!"
    What did you love best about Mallets Aforethought?

    THIS STORY IS AN EXCELLENT MYSTERY, BUT IN SUCH A COZY, FUNNY FASHION. JAKE IS FULL OF QUIPS WHICH ARE KEEPERS TO USE ON YOUR HUSBAND AND FRIENDS WHEN THEY LEAST EXPECT IT. AN EXCITING STORY LINE, ALL OF SARAH GRAVES BOOKS, I RE-LISTEN TOO, AND I JUST NEVER DO THAT WITH ANY OTHER AUTHOR. I SEEM TO SHOCK AUDIBLE WHEN I NEED THERE HELP WITH WHERE TO PUT ALL THESE BOOKS, THEY CAN SEE I AM A READER. CHASING VILLAINS IN EVERY BOOK IN THE MOST JOYOUS PART OF MY DAY OR NIGHT. DO CHECK THIS ONE OUT FOR FUN, IS SO WORTH THE CREDIT OR MONEY ON SALE.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    JACOBA TRIPTREE, SAM, AND WAYNE. ELLY, I WOULD LOVE TO MEET OR HAVE SARAH GRAVES HAVE A STORY LINE WITH HER AS THE LEAD CHARACTER AND JAKE TAKING UP "THE WATSON" CHARACTER. WE COULD HAVE STORIES TILL SARAH GRAVES IS A VERY OLD LADY, LIVING LARGE IN HER BEAUTIFUL HOUSE.


    Which character – as performed by Lindsay Ellison – was your favorite?

    ELLY


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    OH MY, YES!


    Any additional comments?

    DO NOT HESITATE TO GET THIS BOOK IF YOU WANT A GREAT READ, AND BE HAPPY THAT YOU BOUGHT IT.
