The Dead of Winter…When Murder Returns to Maine

Realtor and amateur sleuth Darby Farr is back in her hometown for the highly anticipated wedding of her fellow real estate associate, Tina Ames. But the festive mood on the snow-swept island of Hurricane Harbor is darkened with tragic news. Lorraine Delvecchio—the police chief’s assistant—is found dead, tangled in a lobster trap near the abandoned lighthouse on the Manatuck Breakwater.

Working double duty as Chief Dupont’s realtor and PI, Darby uncovers evidence that the death was more than just a slip on the ice. Lorraine’s history with money is far from innocent, and Darby’s suspect list keeps getting longer. With a prominent islander’s dramatic ex-wife back in town and Tina’s plans to sell a reclusive artist’s waterfront home, it’s up to Darby alone to find the murderer before she becomes the next victim.

“A twisty fourth case that strikes close to the bone for a complex, likable sleuth.”—Kirkus Reviews
