Publisher's Summary

Jake Tiptree has a problem. A coven of self-styled witches has taken over her Eastport, Maine, waterfront rental property for Halloween - and their repair requests are annoyingly frequent. But while Jake is normally game to take on any fixer-upper challenge, she'd rather be tackling her own needed repairs on her 1823 Federal-style home.

Until, that is, preacher Gene Dibble turns up dead - and the whole town is convinced that Jake and her tenants are up to sorcery and skullduggery. While the witches are complaining about ghostly moaning and her neighbors are chewing their nails, it's up to Jake to pry out the identity of the real culprit - before the killer nails her.

5 stars

Every book I have read in this series is really good, and this one is no different. As always, Jake balances her home life with fixing her house and solving a murder. The cast of characters are well developed and behave realistically. The story is fast paced and well written. I love this series.

Didn't like it...

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I just couldn't get into this book for some reason and after several tries just went on to the next one. I have enjoyed this series very much but this particular book just didn't flow like the rest and felt disconnected somehow.

Still good

I like this series. There really isn't anything bad to say about this installment of this series. Sarah Graves weaves an interesting tail that puts Jake into trouble that only she can get out of. As always, Lindsay Ellison does a fantastic job as Jake. In my opinion, she is Jake Tiptree. I have read all of the books in this series and will read the next one as well.
