Abstract:

"Jacobia "Jake" Tiptree took the plunge from Wall Street power broker to Maine 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 fixer-upper to lease to the tourist crowd seems like a good idea to Jake and her friend, Ellie. But working double-time as landladies to a coven of wannabe witches isn't what they had in mind. And it gets worse when Jake is called out one stormy night to make a repair-and stumbles on a dead body in the utility shed. The deceased was no favorite of Jake's, but that doesn't mean she wanted him dead! Jake's tenants-an ex-cop, a con man, and a mute teenage girl-say they heard nothing. Scandal, secrets, and a mysterious box buried deep in the foundation of her home are just the beginning of a mystery that threatens to bring Jake's life crashing down. Now she and Ellie are racing to find a missing girl who may be the key-or lead them to a killer holding the nails to their coffins."--BOOK COVER.
