Summary
Jacobia “Jake” Tiptree took the dangerous plunge from Wall Street power broker<U+2013>to homeowner! Now the do-it-yourself enthusiast is about to discover that her own dream house is built on a foundation of murder. Buying a beachfront fixer-upper to lease out to Eastport, Maine<U+2019>s, burgeoning tourist crowd seems like a good idea to Jake Tiptree and her best friend, Ellie White. But working double-time as landladies to a coven of wannabe witches isn<U+2019>t what they had in mind. And it only gets worse when Jake is called out one stormy night to make a repair<U+2013>and stumbles on a dead body in the utility shed. A small-time thief and street preacher with a particularly violent message, the deceased was no favorite of Jake<U+2019>s<U+2013>nor of anyone else in Eastport. But what<U+2019>s he doing shot to death on Jake<U+2019>s property? Jake<U+2019>s bewitching tenants<U+2013>including an ex-cop, a con man, and a mute teenage girl<U+2013>claim to have been too busy conjuring spells to have heard or seen a thing. Then a member of the coven disappears without a trace and Jake doesn<U+2019>t think it<U+2019>s a case of witchcraft<U+2013>but a kidnapping...or worse. Scandal, secrets, and a mysterious box buried deep in the foundation of her own home are just the beginning of a mystery that threatens to bring Jake<U+2019>s house<U+2013>and life<U+2013>crashing down. Now she and Ellie are racing to find a missing girl who may be the key to it all...or lead them to a killer holding the final nails to their coffins
