After Clyde died in the apartment and Jake’s mystery disappearance, Sarah, Clyde’s ex-wife took over the building, bookstore and all. Clyde must have had a huge life insurance policy with Sarah still the beneficiary, because she sure has spent the money lately. She remodeled the bookstore and turned it into a barista, that the locals don’t really care for. She rented the upstairs apartment to some fancy law firm that she is awfully friendly with.. She was said to have also bought a string of motels just outside of town. Sarah didn’t spend much money on the motels themselves, but she had a huge tennis court built on the property. The tennis court, itself, cost more than the property. The contractors said that when they cleared the land for the tennis court, they saw a woman out there digging in the dirt.
