Nail Biter is the ninth book in Sarah Graves' Home Repair is Homicide series. At times, these mysteries have been confusing, with too many plotlines and too many characters. This is not one of those times. Graves' new book is one of the strongest in the series.
Jacobia (Jake) Tiptree and her best friend, Ellie, have rented a house in Eastport, Maine to a small "coven of witches." Had they known it would lead to murder, drugs, and a teenage girl's disappearance, they might have done differently. If Jake had known that her "snooping" would bring back bad childhood memories, and cause her to ignore a family crisis, she might have done differently. However, her father is wise enough to tell her that it's always hard to forgive ourselves.
As Jake puts herself in danger to rescue a girl in trouble, "Nail Biter" becomes more than the title of the book.
