Recently, Matinicus (prequel to Reese's Leap) has won both the "Best Mystery," 2013 Indie Book Awards and the Bronze Prize for Regional Fiction from the 2013 IPPY Awards!
Synopsis:In this much-anticipated sequel to the award-winning "Matinicus," five longtime friends—briefly freed from their complex lives for an annual, all-female retreat on Adria Jackman’s remote, 200-acre enclave of Mistake Island, Maine—are forced to put the partying on hold to host the hard-drinking, bachelor botanist, Gil Hodges, stranded there for what could be days. A hopeless womanizer, Gil is secretly pleased at the layover, but soon finds Mistake’s deeply forested interior deceptively bucolic and the women a bit too intriguing for comfort, stirring both glorious memory and profound regret. When a diabolical stranger appears out of nowhere, insinuating himself into the fold to exact a twisted kind of revenge, it falls to Gil to keep the women safe, despite a dawning awareness that not everyone will make it off the island alive.
Read an excerpt:
Author Bio:DARCY SCOTT is a live-aboard sailor and experienced ocean cruiser who’s sailed to Grenada and back on a whim, island-hopped through the Caribbean, and been struck by lightning in the middle of the Gulf Stream. Her favorite cruising ground remains the coast of Maine, however, and her appreciation of the history and rugged beauty of its sparsely populated out-islands serves as inspiration for her Maine Island Mystery Series, which includes 2012’s award-winning "Matinicus" and the newly released "Reese’s Leap." Book three, "Ragged Island," is currently in the works. Her debut novel, "Hunter Huntress," was published in June, 2010 by Snowbooks, Ltd., UK.
Catch Up With the Author:
From My Perspective:Reese's Leap is part two in the Gil Hodges island mystery series and it was every bit as enthralling as the first book. In this story Gil accompanies his friend Duggan to Mistake Island where several ladies have gathered for their Island Women's getaway. Men are not welcome, but one has mistakenly invited her man and thus his friend by default. But everything seems to be against their leaving when an uninvited guest shows up, seeking revenge for his brother's death. Darcy Scott can spin a great tale and I enjoy reading her very distinct writing style and the mysteries, layer by layer construed to intrigue the reader. Nothing is ever straight forward and direct, it is always like pulling the truth from a cement encasement! Her work is just unputdownable!!
