A Bat in the Belfry: A Home Repair Is Homicide Mystery - Sarah Graves

Release Date - May 2013

Sarah Graves

Book Review by Bob Walch

The fans of Sarah Graves’ “A Home Repair Is Homicide” mystery series won’t want to miss this latest installment. An epic Nor’easter is heading directly towards Jacobia Tiptree’s Eastport, Maine, village and the island community is preparing for the worst.

With the weather service warning of heavy rain, 60 mile wind gusts and possible power outages, the tourists are being shuttled off the island and the locals are battening down the hatches. The local, 200-year-old Seaman’s Church and its steeple is of concern and everyone hopes it will weather the storm.

But, there’s even a greater concern about the landmark when it becomes a crime scene after a local teen girl is found murdered in the structure. An even bigger storm is brewing as one of Jake’s son’s friends is considered to be a suspect in the crime. Once again, the handy, amateur sleuth will have to set aside her tools and play detective.

An added treat on this, the 16th novel in the series, is the introduction of a new character , Lizzie Snowe. Graves plans to spin her off into a new series next year so you’ll want to be sure to get in on the ground floor here and learn all about Lizzie!
