Winter at the Door
By Sarah Graves
The first in a new mystery series from HOME REPAIR IS HOMICIDE author Sarah Graves, featuring the tough but haunted Maine police chief Lizzie Snow.
Lizzie Snow was first introduced in the final book of Graves's previous series, BAT IN THE BELFRY, in which she helped Jake Tiptree find who killed a girl and left her body in a church steeple. Now Lizzie has taken over as Eastport's police chief, and is quickly finding the job - and her life - more complicated than she expected.
Then she learns that someone seems to be killing retired detectives in the state... and that she has been followed from Boston to Maine by a mysterious stalker whose chilling intentions will drive her to the edge.
Sarah Graves lives in Eastport, Maine with her husband and their dog, Evelyn. Whilst writing the 'Home Repair is Homicide' mysteries, she worked on fixing up an old house.
