Jacobia Tiptree and her teenage son are used to their Eastport, Maine, home attracting more than its share of house guests. This year Jake is hoping the plaster dust will keep them away while she finally gets her gem of a fixer-upper into shape-from doorknobs and chandeliers to ghostly phenomena. But when the charming and mysterious Jonathan Raines appears on her doorstep and then just as suddenly disappears, remodeling the house becomes the least of Jake's problems. Could Jonathan's disappearance have something to do with his quest for a cursed violin that local legend says was hidden by a long-ago owner of Jake's house, before he too vanished without a trace? Jake needs to strip Eastport's past of its idyllic veneer before a killer paints her very dead indeed!

"Jacobia ("Jake") Tiptree, a transplanted New Yorker, now lives in Eastport, Maine, with her teenaged son. She is determined to repair, by herself, the "fixer-upper" she bought, but her efforts are continually thwarted by what some believe are ghosts. Enter Jonathan Raines, a young man who claims that months before Jake agreed to let him lodge at her house. When Jonathan disappears under mysterious circumstances, Jake and some of the locals get involved in the investigation. Lindsay Ellison does a credible job narrating this light, amusing story. She combines believable Maine accents with a variety of character voices, maintaining consistency throughout. A nice touch by Ellison, wholly appropriate to the story, makes this audiobook pleasant to listen to. S.S.R. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
