Publisher's Summary

As an epic nor'easter bears down on the idyllic island town of Eastport, Maine, Jacobia Tiptree hurries to prepare her antique house for the big blow, while the town battles to evacuate tourists and save the beloved 200-year-old Seaman's Church steeple, threatened by the storm. But when a local teen beauty-pageant winner from a troubled family is found murdered in the steeple's bell tower and Jake's son Sam's visiting childhood friend comes under scrutiny as a suspect, the resulting storm of gossip and suspicion rivals anything the Atlantic could brew up.

Her Best Yet!!!

This is one of the best books in the series. It is possibly one of the best books I have read this year. Sarah Graves does a very good job weaving together several plotlines and well developed characters without confusing her audience. Jake and Ellie were not the main investigators in this book, and that was okay. Their roles were not diminished in the least. I can't wait for the next book in this series.

Not so Cozy

The story was good but I prefer not to hear about things happening to pets.

As usual, Sarah Graves gives good cozy mystery

At first listen her stories seem like they might be too cozy but there are always enough twists, painful human cruelty and family/town back story to keep it interesting and me wanting more. Thank you Sarah!

Very entertaining

I recently found this series on Audible and decided to give the first book a try. I then read the second and just finished "reading" this last book in the series. Needles to say I found the books entertaining, so much so, that I took a trip to Eastport, Maine to see if the author's description of the town had the same feel in person. It did! I actually was talking to someone who moved to Eastport after she read the series. I was glad, however, that there weren't any murders...thank goodness for creative license.

Good twists & turns!

¿¿Who wrote the review of this audio book?? there is NO beauty queen. And Maggie didn't get accused of murder.
I really enjoyed this story. I look forward to reading another.

amazing, as always

sarah graves never disappoints. as a Washington County, Maine resident, her writing just makes me happy! attention to detail, right down to the description of the haddock burger at the New Friendly Restaurant, is spot on, and pure entertainment for "us locals."
