Publisher's Summary

Jacobia "Jake" Tiptree's leisurely summer dreams involve rebuilding the front porch of her Maine fixer-upper and shingling the leaky tool shed out back. That's why she's hired the avenging angel of household hygiene, Bella Diamond, to keep her house--and her teenage son Sam--in tip-top shape. But when Bella confides in Jake that she's been receiving death threats, Jake has two choices: find out who is frightening the hapless housekeeper--or risk losing her. With a marauding moose loose in town, a troublesome love triangle occupying Sam, and her estranged relatives about to descend for the Fourth of July, Jake's summer is sure to be anything but peaceful. No matter how carefully you remodel your life, murder can take up residence anywhere.

I've come to dislike most of the characters

Any additional comments?

I think this will be the last book I buy from this series. I just don't like most of the characters any more. The son is a jerk. The ex-girlfriend has no self-respect, the main character, Jacobia, violates people's rights without a qualm. and without retribution. Only the ex-husband, Victor, seems to have any personality. And the clincher is that both Victor and Jacobia were born with the last name of Tiptree. yeah, right.<br/><br/>The plots used to be fun and interesting but now even I can figure it out before Jacobia.
