"Cozy" mystery, series (Home Repair is Homicide).

This isn't necessarily a book I would normally pick up, but once I started I was well drawn in. As with many of these Jessica Fletcher type mysteries, there is a murder in a small town, and Jacobia Tiptree is set to solve it. Pretty good, well rounded characters, and the interaction between characters is well rendered. There's a very strong setting here, with Graves interspersing nearly every "action" paragraph with a description of either the small Maine town it is set in, or of the house Jacobia lives in and is fixing up.
