Whodunits with Donuts Book Club @ Walkertown Library Thursday, December 15th
Join the Whodunits: Crime Solvers Book Club as we eat donuts and discuss Wreck the Halls by Sarah Graves.
Pairing home repair and murder may seem a bit of a stretch, but Graves hits the nail square on the head in her Home Repair Is Homicide mysteries. Even those who don’t own a screwdriver will be hooked by this fifth installment in the series. Graves' oddly named but thoroughly likable female protagonist, Jacobi “Jake” Sorenson, left a lucrative career as a New York financial advisor and moved with son Sam to the tiny island of Eastport, Maine, where she devotes her days to the never-ending repairs on her 1823 Federal clapboard home. Jake’s enjoyment of the Christmas season is interrupted when she drops in on her friend, Faye Anne Carmody, and finds Faye’s abusive husband dead and Faye covered in blood and unsure what happened. With the encouragement of her best friend, Ellie, Jake agrees to help Faye Anne prove her innocence. Meanwhile, domestic tranquility between Jake and husband Wade is threatened by the annoying presence of Jake’s ex-spouse, Victor. Graves paints a compelling portrait of small-town Maine in this entertaining cozy.
A perfect mystery just in time for the holidays.
All are welcome to join us.
