Publisher's Summary

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.

Enjoyable and not obvious conclusion

I enjoy these books though her failing to put her ex in his place is getting annoying.

Also, I am assuming they were Canada Geese that flew over, a specific type of goose. Canadian geese could be any type of goose that comes from Canada.

good listen

The story itself is good. My only complaint per say is that the reader gives me a totally different feel for the characters than previous books. The voices she uses made me feel that the characters are all very old, like 70+ (especially Ellie and George!) and that the main character is not a 30 something Manhatten type with a 17yr old but a 50-60yr old lumberjackish type who is dating a 70+ yr old since that whole group grew up together. It makes the feel of the story very different and not in a good way.

Another great read

Like seriously the ONLY problem I have is with Jacobia (sp) and Vincent. I do not like her passive relationship with him. UGH

Love this series...

I wish I had started these books before reading the ones about the Chocolate Moose. Knowing their future events spoils it a little, but love the series.

Interesting idea, poor execution

As usual Lindsay Ellison delivers an excellent vocal performance giving the proper accent to various characters and giving Jacobia's usual wry commentary the snap it needs. Good audio recording and production values.

I generally don't think this one worked well. I think the clues setting up the solution weren't well presented and I regularly felt the character's were distracted from important details. Even if the end of the story gives a monologue explaining it I dont think it fit properly. In part I think this being the third book of the series (and my reading them in such quick succession which was not the original intent by the author) I found myself questioning why some the characters were behaving in ways that didnt fit the previous books. Why did Jacobia loan her husband such a large sum of money? In the previous two books she makes it clear she doesn't trust him and wants to avoid entanglements with him. It really does not make sense and annoyed me for much of the book. If it was to set up the fact she would learn she can rely on others or to motivate her I think there were other i character ways to do that. Wade and Ellie also do a number of things that dont fit their characters as presented in previous books.

I generally also think there was an interesting premise in this book. A kernel of an idea about how sins of the past can't be ignored and how abuse can linger and impact people. I just disagree with how the author wants to explore that and find some of Rueben's actions cartoonishly evil. There is also a subplot with a Ouija Board that is clearly there to set up more about the house being haunted but it feels like a massive distraction from the novel.

This isn't the worst book and I'm going to try the next book in the series but I wasn't happy with this one.

Kept me guessing who really killed Ruben. Excellent use of multiple characters. Love the narrator!
