Shiver Hitch by Linda Greenlaw. Published by St. Martins

Tired of death and despair, Jane Bunker left her job as a Miami homicide detective to move to a small town in Maine, where she became an insurance investigator. Unfortunately, murder even happen in the place where “life is as it should be”. On an island Down East, a woman hated by all has perished in a house fire. Terrible accident or something more sinister? Coping with the change of place (not to mention weather), Jane must negotiate her way through an investigation involving a community that doesn’t open up to flat landers, deal with her highly eccentric landlords and care for her brother, Wally, who has Down Syndrome. Greenlaw knows Maine well, and she uses it well in this absorbing and sometimes humorous mystery
