When a malicious local scuttles the sale of a Maine island estate by digging up an obscure deed restriction, and the back-up buyer is found hacked to death, realtor Darby Farr must salvage the deal, piece together this deadly puzzle, and somehow stay alive.
"Red-hot real estate agent Darby Farr spent years trying to forget her hometown of Hurricane Harbor, Maine-especially the painful memories of being raised by her controlling aunt following her parents' tragic deaths. Then one morning, she learns her aunt is dying, and the calculating woman has one final demand: clinch the multimillion-dollar sale of Fairview, a breathtaking waterfront estate.The deal seems simple, but trouble is brewing on the rocky coast. Within hours of Darby's arrival, an obscure deed restriction scuttles the sale just as the backup buyer is found bludgeoned to death on the property's grounds. Assisted by handsome journalist Miles Porter, Darby uncovers dark secrets that reveal an ugly scandal, and even uglier motives for murder. As a brutal storm surges up the coast, Darby must salvage the deal, find the killer-and somehow stay alive."---P. [4] of cover.

The best of her series. Liked the descriptions of Maine and the local characters. A nice change from the "Crank-em out U.S. of A. style.
More like the Canadian authors I have been reading lately. SRL
