A THRILLING NEW SERIES WITH A CANDID GLIMPSE INTO LUXURY REAL ESTATE
Red-hot realtor Darby Farr escaped her stifling hometown of Hurricane Harbor, Maine, to build a new life in California, free of painful memories and her controlling aunt. But when Darby gets a shocking phone call from her elderly aunt's assistant, it sends her back to the Maine island to close a multimillion-dollar sale--her dying aunt's last wish.
Fairview, a breathtaking waterfront estate, seems like a simple deal . . . until a malicious local scuttles the sale by digging up an obscure deed restriction, and the back-up buyer is found hacked to death. Facing a desperate buyer, a dangerous ex-Navy SEAL, and a storm surging up the coast, Darby must salvage the deal, piece together this deadly puzzle, and somehow stay alive.
