It began with the mysterious disappearance of Harriet Hollingsworth - Eastport, Maine's, snoopiest resident. Everyone is convinced the old busybody bolted out of town to escape her creditor - everyone except Jake and her best friend, Ellie, who suspect otherwise. But they'll need to come up with proof more sinister than a pair of abandoned binoculars.
Just as Jake starts poking around for clues, things take a troubling turn for the worse. A suspicious accident nearly kills her teenaged son, Sam, and her husband, Wade, just misses getting his head blown off. Jake is prepared to attribute these incidents to a spate of bad luck - until another accident leaves a visitor to Eastport unmistakably dead.

This is a well written story with great characters. Although I recommend reading the entire series in order, it is possible to read them out of order. Each book is capable of standing alone. The story is well plotted with the right amount of suspense. Despite murder most foul, this book manages to keep a light tone and have a happy ending.
This was my favorite so far. The character development along with the interweaving plots had me dreading the end of the book...while excited to listen to the next one. Loved it.
Elly, her character gives a nice balance to Jacobia's full-bodied personality.
Listening to a voice bonds you to the story. It creates a sense of kinship with the characters, especially as you work through a series. The only problem comes when the same narrator pops up in another series... that's hard to adjust to.
