Read all about the Darby Farr Mystery Series at my new website!
A HOUSE TO DIE FOR introduces the smart and savvy Darby Farr, a red hot real estate agent selling luxury homes — and solving bloody crimes. Darby’s first thrilling mystery takes place on the coast of Maine in the fictional island town of Hurricane Harbor, home to the breathtaking waterfront estate Fairview. Darby no sooner sets foot on the craggy island than she is confronted by a homicidal ex-Navy SEAL, the bludgeoned body of a Boston spinal surgeon, and family secrets that threaten both her life — and the property’s sale. You can purchase A HOUSE TO DIE FOR at your local bookstore or on Amazon.com and step into the world of multi-million dollar homes… and MURDER!
KILLER LISTING finds Darby on Florida’s Gulf Coast where the smart and savvy Mainer must solve the murder of a successful Realtor stabbed to death at her own open house. Kyle Cameron had everything — money, men, and movie-star looks, but the former Miss Florida had enemies, too, among them some of the most powerful people in the state. Was her death the sick work of the “Kondo Killer,” a serial maniac targeting real estate agents, or was it someone she knew? Darby puts her own life on the line to find out, while meanwhile negotiating the sale of a $40 million island estate belonging to the PGA’s leading golfer to a mysterious Japanese businessman with ties to Darby’s past.
And, in DEADLY OFFER, Realtor Darby Farr heads to Northern California wine country with her assistant, E.T., when his sister, Selena, dies under mysterious circumstances at the up-and-coming vineyard she owns. Much to their surprise, they learn that Selena was desperately ill and had planned to sell the property in a high-stakes bidding war among three buyers. This is no suicide, however; someone is stalking the vineyards and wants to clinch this deal. E.T. and his brother beg Darby to bring her realtor expertise to the negotiating table, but she just can’t help but investigate Selena’s death, too. The case grows increasingly sinister as dangerous incidents around the property threaten her safety. When another vintner dies, Darby realizes her instincts are spot-on.
Darby’s third appearance (after Killer Listing) is just the property for those who want a fast, entertaining read with a diverse cast and appealing setting. A winning teen sleuth adds YA appeal. — Library Journal, February 2012.
