For ex-Wall Streeter Jacobia Jake Tiptree and her teenage son, Sam, September promises tranquil days winter-proofing their rambling handyman's special of a home in Eastport, Maine. But there's nothing idyllic about this Down East autumn.
For starters, the return of truly vicious native son Reuben Tate stirs up the town. And when somebody slits Reuben's throat and hangs his corpse on the cemetery gate, the police trace a bloodied scalpel to surgeon Victor Tiptree - Jake's former husband. Yet Jake knows her troublesome, trouble-prone ex is capable of just about anything except murder. Proving that, though, will involve nailing the real killer.

Any one looking for a series of mystery stories to follow would enjoy this series.
This is one of my favorite series. The characters are realistic, the story is well plotted and the pacing is always good. I have to say that this book takes a turn to the dark side. There is a lot going on and Jakobia and Ellie are drawn into the mystery to save Victor of all people. This is a solid good mystery and I would recommend it to anyone who likes cozy mysteries as well as someone who like darker mysteries. This book walks a fine line.
