Jacobia a€œJakea€ Tiptree took the dangerous plunge from Wall Street power brokera€“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, Mainea€™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 isna€™t what they had in mind. And it only gets worse when Jake is called out one stormy night to make a repaira€“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 Jakea€™sa€“nor of anyone else in Eastport. But whata€™s he doing shot to death on Jakea€™s property? Jakea€™s bewitching tenantsa€“including an ex-cop, a con man, and a mute teenage girla€“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 doesna€™t think ita€™s a case of witchcrafta€“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 Jakea€™s housea€“and lifea€“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.
