Graves brings chills, thrills to the Jesup

BAR HARBOR — Sarah Graves, the bestselling Maine author of the “Home Repair is Homicide” series is back with the first book in her new Lizzie Snow series, “Winter at the Door.” She will be at the Jesup Memorial Library on Saturday, June 20, at 1 p.m. for a book signing.

Graves’ “Home Repair is Homicide” series has more than a million books in print. Now, her new crime thriller follows Lizzie Snow, a Boston detective, as she leaves the city and moves to the remote town of Bearkill, Maine, to leave her tragic past behind. However, with a killer on the loose who is targeting local cops, Lizzie must find him before he hurts those she is trying to protect.

The Boston Globe wrote that the book is “a complex tale with twists and turns that feel earned, and [has] a character who knows exactly who she is,” and author Paul Doiron notes, “With ‘Winter at the Door,’ Sarah Graves has pulled off a small miracle. Through artfully precise language and a plot that kept me turning pages well past my bedtime, she transported me to a North Woods village that seemed utterly real in the vividness of its details and yet almost dreamlike. I got out my map of Maine, looking for the backwoods town of Bearkill, and was surprised when I couldn’t find it. What a fantastic setting, and what a great character in Lizzie Snow. I can’t wait for the next book.”

Graves, who lives in Eastport, is currently working on her next book in the Lizzie Snow series, “The Girls She Left Behind.”

This event is co-sponsored by Sherman’s bookstore. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the Jesup that afternoon with a percentage of sales donated to the library.
