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 [Published: DEC 04/ JAN 05]
